Which teams we're buying and selling and why.


Georgia Bulldogs

Much like Penn State, Georgia's weakness -- the offensive line -- should be another recruiting class or two away from being up to league standards, but good coaching has that position developing well ahead of schedule. The Bulldogs are sporting a freshman quarterback, lack elite depth in a few spots on defense and match up poorly against Alabama.
