The Bulldog Nation should not panic because…

South Carolina and Florida’s upcoming schedules….and the Big Ten.

The Gamecocks and Gators are undoubtedly Georgia’s two biggest challenges for the SEC East. The Gators (who only escaped a loss to Kentucky by an officials inability to look at a play clock) have to travel to play Alabama and Tennessee, as well as home dates with LSU and South Carolina. There’s at least two if not three potential losses for the Gators in there.

South Carolina has upcoming road games at Kentucky (who are obviously better than most thought), Auburn and Florida, with a tough home game against Tennessee. The Gamecocks already have a conference loss, so one or two out of those games and their struggling to stay alive in the conference.

With those two teams slugging out a tough schedule, Georgia has the opportunity to put the South Carolina loss behind them and make the Cocktail Party count for all the marbles.

As far as the College Football Playoff is concerned, its obvious nobody wants to win the Big Ten this season, so the SEC can have their unofficial slot in the playoff picture.
