Mark Richt Hubris Watch: Day 5


The future isn't looking too good for Georgia...at least not bowl-wise. ESPN's tag team of Mark Schlabach and Bruce Feldman have chimed in on where they think which college football team goes to which bowl this year.
Schlabach is the more optimistic of the two. He has the Dawgs facing Florida State in the awesomeness of the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl in Nashville on December 27. Part of me feels there is a little sentimentality behind this projected match-up, with Richt facing former boss Bobby Bowden in what might be Bowden's last game. Heck, it could be Richt's last game...if he makes it. Anyhow, it would be a pale shadow of the 2003 Sugar Bowl where the two teams met, and UGA came out victorious.
Think it could get worse for the Dawgs? (Outside of going nowhere, that is.) Feldman has them playing on December 28 at the Advocare V100 Independence Bowl in Shreveport, La. Oh look at the vitamins falling out of the sky! Look at the vitamins falling out of the sky! Feldman has them placing Missouri, who are currently 5-3. Since I expect Georgia will be 0-2 against teams nicknamed the Tigers by the end of the season, I'll just mark them down for the hat trick and say Missouri will slam them.
Of course this is all dependent on whether Georgia will be bowl eligible by then. Tennessee Tech should be easy, so expect the Dawgs to struggle mightily in that one. Then comes Kentucky, Auburn and Georgia Tech. Georgia could easily go 1-2 in that stretch.
If it weren't for the times and locations, the games probably wouldn't be half bad. (Mind you, Nashville ain't a bad place to visit.) But in the bowl pecking order, both are pretty low. You just can't see the Bulldog Faithful being too pleased with either game. Plus, they might just stay at home anyway. That would be twice as embarrassing for Georgia.
