You can see Pre-Snap Read’s preview of #19 Georgia here. I would describe it as cautiously optimistic – in other words, falling somewhere between Andrea Adelson and College Football News – which is certainly a prudent way to look at the program from the perspective of fall camp.
… Let’s not allow the disappointing finishes of the last two years to tarnish what Richt has accomplished with the Bulldogs; the fact that a 18-8 mark over two years can be construed as a disappointment should be reason enough to comprehend to what heights Richt has taken the Georgia program.
… What’s the point I’m trying — and failing, it feels like — to make here? That Grantham isn’t using last season’s depth chart at gospel. Kudos to him, if true. It would have been easy for him to rely upon experience to form his new starting 11. Easy, but misguided…
… And that’s all that should matter. And that’s all that Grantham cares about. His rebuilding job won’t take a month. It might take a year — it might take more. However, it’s heartening to see that he’s picking the players best fit for this defense, even if it means sacrificing experience for potential. That’s a good thing, in my opinion — a great thing. And it bodes well for the Georgia defense under his watch.
