Brad Nessler explains why he's skeptical of Georgia winning the SEC East
After watching Florida give Alabama all it wanted in the 31-29 loss to the Tide, CBS college football announcer Brad Nessler told Greg McElroy and Cole Cubelic on their morning show “McElroy and Cubelic In the Morning” on WJOX radio out of Birmingham, Alabama that he’s not sold on Georgia winning the East.
Nessler said he was impressed with the Bulldogs defense, however, he is not ready to crown them champs just yet.

“I’m not sure about Georgia yet. I’m still in a wait-and-see deal,” he said. Nessler also isn’t sold on the Bulldogs running game. “They don’t have a dominant guy there I don’t think. I think their receivers are still learning. I think their defense is as good as anybody’s in the country, maybe better than all of them, I don’t know. To answer your question, Florida impressed me. I thought it was just going to be hands down all right, Georgia’s going to win the East. Last year I thought Florida would win the East and they did. … I’m more impressed with Florida. I think Florida can hang with Georgia and be a threat. More than I did when I was heading to Gainesville last week.”
Nessler isn’t exactly impressed with quarterback JT Daniels either. Even though Daniels came in at the end of last season and won all of the games he started, Nessler said, “Who did he beat?”
Georgia and Florida will meet Oct. 30.
