Comments

This game features Georgia, which very well could be the best team in the SEC (and America), against a Tennessee whose program is in a mess due to weak leadership both by coaches and administrators. The latest scandal involves Vol player Jeremy Banks, who after being arrested, was shown in a video telling police, “Where I’m from, we shoot at cops.” Georgia doesn’t need any help beating Tennessee. This latest distraction can’t help the Vols’ cause.
