Georgia Bulldogs: Had Slim Chance vs. Colorado Buffaloes

The Georgia Bulldogs fell to the No. 21 Colorado Buffaloes, 84-70 as expected, despite a 12-point performance from Nemanja Djurisic. Georgia never really stood a chance against a potential 2014 NCAA Tournament bound team that had a lot more talent on their roster.

The loss brings the Bulldogs overall record to 6 – 5, which puts them in the bottom three in the SEC in terms of losses. With a tough final match-up against the George Washington Colonials in non-conference play, Georgia should enter SEC play at 6-6. Despite not being a very good team, an even record will give them hope going into SEC play; unfortunately, that hope will be crushed early.

Georgia’s first SEC opponents are the No. 25 Missouri Tigers, followed by the Alabama Crimson Tide, No. 13 Florida Gators and Arkansas Razorbacks. All four of these teams are expected to have a chance at making the 2014 NCAA Tournament, which means that the Bulldogs shouldn’t stand a chance. Georgia should enter SEC play with four-straight losses.

After these four games they face the South Carolina Gamecocks. Unfortunately for Georgia, the Gamecocks have shown that they are better than expected by nearly defeating the No. 11 Baylor Bears and defeating the then undefeated Saint Mary’s Gaels. It looks like it’s going to be down to Georgia and the Auburn Tigers to decide who the worst team in the SEC will be this season.

The way that Georgia has played so far this season reflects an extremely disappointing season. Expect the Bulldogs to flounder in SEC play and only win three or four games.
