)Is it Alabama, whose long shadow looms over anything Georgia does at this point? From the 2008 "blackout" game that exposed an overhyped preseason No. 1, to the 2012 SEC title game when an Aaron Murray pass fell just short of the end zone as time expired, to the 2017 national title game when Georgia lost in overtime, the Crimson Tide have always been the biggest obstacle between Georgia's status as the best team without a recent national championship and being a team that's actually won one.:

The truth might be that Georgia will face all three opponents in the Orange Bowl. Shaking off the lingering nightmare that was the SEC championship game is easier said than done, but a strong start against Michigan would certainly help. The Wolverines present a far different challenge than Alabama, too, and in many ways, their power ground game is a better matchup for the Bulldogs' defense. There will be no rat poison this time around, either. Georgia has spent the better part of the past month talking about its failures, not its success. That might be a blessing.

The Bulldogs are ranked as the consensus No. 1 team in the country, and are likely secured a spot in the CFP this season even with a loss to the Crimson Tide. Undefeated at 12-0 (8-0 in SEC), head coach Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs are averaging 40.7 PPG offensively, as well as allowing only 6.9 PPG to opponents this season, which is tops in the country.

This year was supposed to be different. This was supposed to be the year that the student became the master, that Kirby Smart, the Nick Saban disciple, finally took it to the old man. Everything had lined up Georgia’s way, from a roster stacked deep with five-star recruits to a defense that spent the entire season smothering hopes all across the South. This was supposed to be the year that Georgia broke its 40-year championship drought. (Source: sports.yahoo.com)
