Expectations are quite high this year for the Georgia Bulldogs, and that's been reflected in SB Nation's latest BlogPoll -- an interesting spin on college football rankings. Mark Richt's Bulldogs are ranked No. 6 in the BlogPoll, third in the SEC only to LSU and Alabama -- the two teams that met in the title game last season.
Last year, the Bulldogs finished up 10-4, after losing in triple overtime in the Outback Bowl to Michigan State. Georgia also had a chance to win the SEC title, playing against LSU in the title game, but were blown out by Les Miles' team, 42-10.
Georgia will get a taste of the new-look SEC almost immediately, as they head to Missouri in Week 2 to welcome the Tigers to the SEC. As is the case every year in the SEC, Georgia will have excel in SEC play if they're going to make a serious run at a BCS game -- or even the national title in 2012.
