Let me preface this slide by noting that the No. 10 Georgia Bulldogs are a legitimate Top 25 team, unfortunately there is no evidence on paper to prove that Mark Richt's squad is worthy of being ranked.
The Bulldogs' only game against a team with a record above .500 this season was a completely lopsided 35-7 loss to the No. 13 South Carolina Gamecocks in Week 5 of the 2012 college football campaign, which is not something that should be taken lightly.
Georgia opened the year with blowouts of the Buffalo Bulls (1-6), Missouri Tigers (3-4), Florida Atlantic Owls (1-6) and Vanderbilt Commodores (3-4), but the defense did not impress in any of those games supposedly because of multiple starters sitting out due to suspension.
Richt's defense has been at full strength for three straight weeks now, and it has not looked much different than it did through the first four games.
The Tennessee Volunteers (3-4) hung 44 points on the Dawgs defense, and last weekend the Kentucky Wildcats (1-7) gave Georgia quite the scare in a drawn-out 29-24 contest in the Bluegrass State.
Georgia will get a second chance to validate their BCS ranking this Saturday when the Bulldogs take on the No. 2 Florida Gators in Jacksonville, Fla., in the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.
