DN Roundtable: Georgia's ranking 

August, 22, 2012
The preseason polls came out recently and the Georgia Bulldogs were ranked at No. 6 in both the Associated Press Top 25 and the USA Today coaches’ poll. Not too shabby, considering the way Georgia ended the season with two losses and seven players being drafted to the NFL. It has been a while since the Bulldogs were that high in the polls -- preseason or otherwise. The players we spoke to said it was a good start and they want to prove that they are worthy of the voters’ confidence. Mark Richt said he wished the polls came out later. He also spoke about how he votes in the coaches’ poll. With that in mind, our DawgNation Roundtable discussion question is:

“Do you agree with Georgia being ranked at No. 6? Also, what is your view on having head coaches vote in a poll?”

David Ching: Ranking Georgia somewhere between six and 10 feels about right to me. I think the Bulldogs have the potential to be better than that, but there are a few programs ranked ahead of them that have been better at sustaining success through the last several seasons. Going into the season, ranking sixth sets the bar high, but not too high for a program that still has a lot to prove.
