    You could get drunk if he breathed on your coffee.

    App State is ranked #20 in both polls and #21 in the CFB playoffs. App State beat SC in Columbia this year. SC beat the Dawgs in Athens. App State does not play at LSU's level but App State is NOT A CUPCAKE. UGA can give the Tigers a game but LSU can also slaughter their ass.Based on what I have seen this year, I'd say a slaughter is the more likely of the two.
    Geaux Tigers!

    You know how those stats can be though. Bama with a #7 offense based on the softest schedule they may have ever had and zero quality wins. Even Texas....they played Oklahoma and did put up 27, but rivalry games can be that way. Baylor? Shut them down. Most of their offensive stats came from the likes of teams like Rice, LaTech, Kansas, TTech..

    Transitivity isn't a great tool in college football.


    I don't believe that is part of the equation. I have no illusions about the likely outcome of the game. But my daughter is a Dawg....so Go Dawgs! :D

    Ok. What good offense has UGA played? The highest ranked O they played was #47.

    In fact, LSUs D posted better defensive performances VS AU and A&M than UGA did.........

    Also, Bama has an elite offense. To suggest otherwise is silly.

    Right, and no one in college football or any sport around the world uses transitivity to discuss the strength of teams????

    Not that it means anything but the talking heads make a living off of it. And of course, the CFP committee is looking at wins and losses versus common opponents. Nothing is a certain predictor of an outcome in sports. But absent head to head, this is one of the few tools we have.
