ATHENS -- The magazine Sports Illustrated released its annual college football rankings and has Georgia positioned at 11th in the nation.
SI came to this conclusion on Georgia because head coach Mark Richt “will have to integrate a new offensive coordinator and overcome uncertainty at quarterback.”
SI’s top 10 in the nation, in order, are Ohio State, Auburn, TCU, Notre Dame, Alabama, Baylor, Michigan State, USC, Florida State and Oregon.
Georgia was recently ranked ninth in the nation in the preseason Amway Coaches Poll. The AP preseason poll will come out on Aug. 23.
