Sugar Bowl - #7 Baylor vs #5 Georgia

830 posts in this topic

Figured we should get this one going with the big games getting out of the way today and more info coming out about the Dawgs.

The Dawgs will be missing A LOT of players, several of which did not even make the trip to New Orleans. Lots of experience to be had for the younger guys on the team.

Kickoff will be on Wednesday, New Years Day at 8:45 pm Eastern with coverage on ESPN. Dawgs are currently a 6 point favorite.

  • Isaiah Wilson
  • Tyler Clark
  • Malik Herring
  • Divaad Wilson
  • Brian Herrien
  • Kearis Jackson
  • Swift (likely minimal action if he plays)

Baylor plays a style UGA is more accustomed to seeing. They want to hard nosed and run the ball with defense. They can throw but its not their strength. That Big 12 title game they completed 9 of 27 against Oklahoma.

Herring is in New Orleans with the team as is Jackson and Swift. Now, I’d be surprised if Swift player at all and same for Jackson. Herring I have no clue why he’s rumored to not playing

I wanna see a preview to a more open/diverse offense in this game as well.

I wouldn’t get my hopes up on that. Baylor isn’t anything special defensively but I think we are what we are on offense right now and that’s unlikely to change with a bunch of offensive starters out.

If UGA cannot pass for 180yds, doubt we win the game.

Quay Walker too, he’s probably a transfer candidate imo. 

Why? Walker has a good shot at starting next year

Doubtful. With Rice likely declaring for the NFL Walker should be in line to be one of the starters alongside Dean. Now Tindall, he's a guy I could see hitting the transfer portal. He's underachieved bigtime.

Kind of wish Slayer had been trained at OG the whole year.  But apparently they have been training him to play tackle.  Dude is versatile, but his ceiling is at Guard
