Georgia football was once again the No.1 team on Tuesday for the College Football Playoff rankings, and chairman Boo Corrigan hinted that the Dawgs are pretty much a lock. If Georgia wins out, it’s evident that the Dawgs would be in the playoffs, but even if a loss happens in Atlanta to LSU, it seems they would still be one of those top four teams.
Corrigan’s comments showed us that as long as Georgia doesn’t have a full-blown meltdown in the next couple of weeks, the Dawgs will be in the playoffs for the second straight year. The Dawgs have already proven to the committee that they are the best team in the country. Even if someone has a good day against them, it isn’t enough to keep them out of contention.
The Dawgs’ sole focus is on Kentucky, then Georgia Tech, but hearing the committee suggest these things is still good. So many teams are still in the hunt to be in that top four, so those kinds of comments prove what Georgia has done on the field isn’t getting overlooked.
Georgia football has all but physically secured a spot in the College Football Playoffs.
With head coach Kirby Smart in charge, having a meltdown in the next two weeks is not something that fans should worry about because they know how to shut out the noise. The Dawgs have a goal, and they take it one week at a time to achieve it. Similar to last year, Georgia needs to keep doing its thing, and it will be able to compete for another national championship.
While winning an SEC Championship would be fantastic, it isn’t required for the Dawgs to earn a spot in the playoffs. Georgia wants that conference championship title after having that as the only blemish on its 2021 resume, so all this talk could be irrelevant in three weeks. However, it’s still good to know that the committee respects what Georgia has done is more than enough to be a playoff member.
