My corporate taskmasters are well versed in hurry up and wait, and while enjoying a rousing rendition of it today I was able to browse the Georgia commentariat over at Senator Blutarsky's blog. I wonder if perhaps our friends the Aggies are pikers when it comes to arrogance.
Sure, the Aggies once claimed to have superior talent even after we beat them, but one could say it was an emotional reaction to an unexpected loss. And they still didn't go so far as saying they were the better team, merely that they had better talent. Coaching was left open for criticism, and indeed they fired Sherman not long after.
What fascinated me in Blutarsky's comment section were the many Georgia fans who allowed for the possibility of a Mizzou win while maintaining that even if it happened, the Bulldogs were still the superior team.
'Sure Missouri might win. There are many examples in football where the better team loses.'
Really? Aren't we still getting to know our new conference mates, and vice versa? Has it already been so thoroughly analyzed that we know, before the new members have played any conference games, who is better than whom?
I honestly don't know, but am excited to find out. I just hope we're not the only ones who learn something this weekend.
