The OFFICIAL College Football Playoff RANKINGS come-out after week 8 which is our bye week. We will not give up our bye week before Florida because they saw fit not to play Sunday against LSU when they certainly could have as we had to. So we have to beat Vandie to possibly make the Official Football Play-Off Rankings after week 8 and then we’d have to beat Florida to remain in or make it in the top 25 of the College Football Play-Off Rankings November 1.
Anderson-Hester Seattle Times Poll former Official BCS Poll ranks Georgia Bulldogs # 25 :
Richard Billingsley Poll former Official BCS Poll has Georgia # 20 and 9 SEC Top 25 :
Kenneth Massey Poll former Official BCS Poll has Georgia with Schedule Strength # 14 toughest so far while Florida has Schedule Strength # 65 so far and with Miami of Florida # 60 Schedule Strength so far :
Georgia of course is # 26 in the AP Poll this week and # 27 in the Coaches’ Poll :
Mark Richt only was 8-4 his first season here 2001. After 5-1 start while Kirby is 4-2 Mark Richt then lost 2 in a row to drop to 5-3 in route to his 8-4 season 2001 when he was left a lot more to work with than he left Kirby.
Kirby’s 4-2 start is more akin to Mark Richt’s last entire 8 years here. Kirby was not hired because of what Mark Richt did 2002-2007 but for what Mark Richt did NOT do after 2007. There is no doubt the pressure is on Kirby to beat a very good Vandie team here noon Saturday.
