The state of Georgia is in the process of laying claim to a part of Tennessee, as it's done at least eight times since lines were drawn up in 1818. At stake are Tennessee's water rights. This has been going on forever. It will continue.
However, the state of Tennessee does afford other resources, such as its Tennessee Volunteers football program. With war drums beating just over the horizon, here's a look at what the combined Georgia-Tennessee roster could look like this fall, no matter which state ends up lording dominion over the other. It will lose to Alabama.
I like its strength on offense, where Georgia's insane assortment of returning talent gets pushed along the offensive line, likely giving Aaron Murray the best protection in the country, and supplemented with a versatile skill player or two. On defense, we have kind of a mess, with the Dawgs sending just about everything to the NFL Draft. On that side of the ball is where the Vols really shine, and that's not often a good thing.
The goal for this team remains the same as the goal in last year's Georgia vs. Tennessee game: score lots and lots of points.
