This Season

I always try to stay away from predictions.  First, I suck at them.  Second, when I make them, I usually lose (see my one and last attempt to play roulette).  Third, there is no third, see one and two.

I do like to point at past indicators of future performance.  For those of you that have concerns about Georgia's offense, check out these two numbers:  90.33 and 99.43.  Those numbers represent the returning percentage of last seasons receiving and rushing yards.  Putting aside Richard Samuels' role in that 99.43%, that is pretty stout.

A quick look around tells you how impressive this is.
Alabama: 77.77 and 83.83
Auburn: 91.19 and 52
Florida: 26.81 and 69.18
LSU: 45.66 and 35.09

I don't know what this means, but it does mean there is the experience there to do great things.  Now, if we could just kick the ball off and make these things happen.

I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.
