No. 4 – Schedule

Georgia’s 2014 schedule isn’t easy, nobody’s schedule in the SEC is, but it lays out nicely for the prospect of an undefeated season.

The toughest game of the year (right now) looks to be the second game of the season against South Carolina, in Columbia. That is really the big hurdle for the Bulldogs, and it seems that fans agree on that point.

The South Carolina game has become a yearly gut-wrencher for the Bulldog Nation, and it won’t be any different this season. The Bulldogs and Gamecocks are two very evenly stacked teams, and even the smallest of errors could mean the ballgame.

Georgia has the talent to beat South Carolina, they just have to overcome some of their typical sloppy early-season play. Once past the Gamecocks, the rest of the schedule is more than manageable. The other rivals — Auburn, Florida, Georgia Tech — are either at home in Athens, or (in the case of the Gators) in the neutral *clears throat* site of Jacksonville, Fl.

Road games after South Carolina are at Missouri, Arkansas and Kentucky. All teams the Bulldogs should be able to handle this season. Georgia will also have a week off to prepare for South Carolina, Florida and Georgia Tech (if you count cupcake Charleston Southern as a week off).
