Marc Weiszer has a good post up projecting which incoming freshmen have the best opportunity to see the field this season. Richt has been quoted as saying as many as twelve of them could play in ’08. Weiszer sees ten whose chances to play he categorizes likely or better, with another two being 50/50.
What’s interesting is that Weiszer points out Georgia hasn’t had more than six true freshmen play in a season since 2003. Richt has always been a big believer in redshirting. Yet, here’s a year with as much at stake for Georgia as has ever been in the Richt era and the coach is looking at throwing a significantly greater number of these kids into the fire than he’s ever done before.
What do you think that says about (1) the talent level of this year’s class and (2) what Richt thinks his team can accomplish this season?
