Decided to take down the poll today. Twelve readers, including yours truly, participated.
The hypothetical was this:
Assuming a scrimmage between Georgia's 1st and 2nd units, how many games would the 2nd unit win? The first unit was, for purposes of the exercise, Swansey, Butler, Woodbury, Jackson and Price; and the second unit was Ware, Brewer, Leslie, Thompkins and Barnes. I also added that readers should assume that all players were healthy, and that the 2nd unit could sub in Drazen Zlovaric.
The results were as follows:
Most readers (5 votes, or 41%) voted for option b, which was 3 or 4 games. I guess I could have made the selection a little tougher. In second place, (3 votes, or 25%) was option a, 1 or 2 games. Last place was tied (2 votes each/16%)between option c, 5 or 6 games, and option d, which held that the 2nd unit would win more than 6.
I voted for option c. I think that Thompkins and Leslie are way under-rated. When Ware relaxes a bit, he is going to surprise.
Thanks to all who participated.
