Personally, I think this team has the potential to go at least 10-2. Only losing two games took a huge hit last week when we were smacked in the face by the Cocks. Now, this week will be a huge testament to what this team is really made of. My sportsbook has the opening line in the Dawgs' favor at -4. That means, Vegas thinks that Arkansas is coming into Athens, and they are going to keep the score really close in UGA's home stadium.
I figured the line would be even worse actually, but I'm sure it will be closer to Arkansas -1 by the time kickoff rolls around on Saturday. Heaven knows the betting public is most likely going to jump all over the Razorbacks as an underdog.
I think the Dawgs will take care of business Saturday because we match up much better against this team. I feared all along that a stout running game would give the Dawgs fits, and it did last Saturday. Against Arkansas, the Grantham 3-4 should be a perfect fit to stop that high flying Petrino attack. Justin Houston must be salivating to get a shot at Mallett dropping back 30-40 times.
If the Dawgs are exposed this week, they may be considered a "Fraud", but I just don't see it happening. After all, how can it be the Decade of the Dawg if we start out 1-2?
