Paranoia is palpable for Georgia fans when it comes to Florida series

ATHENS – The anxiety is palpable. It has been evident in almost every discussion I’ve had with Georgia fans the last week or so about the upcoming game against Florida in Jacksonville.

“No way we lose this game, right?”

“Weren’t we a big favorite when we lost in 2014?”

“I bet they bring back all those suspended guys for this game, won’t they?”

The paranoia of UGA’s fan base is understandable, considering the tortuous existence they’ve endured when it comes to the Florida series the last couple of decades. Fortunately for them, the players themselves don’t share this same psychosis.

Georgia is the better team in 2017. Significantly better. There’s a reason the Bulldogs are 7-0 and ranked No. 3 in the country. It’s because they’re an excellent team built on a strong running game, defense and special teams. That’s why they’ve won four SEC games by an average of 31 points.
