I get Tim Tucker’s point about Georgia’s secondary this season…
Outlook: Up in the air. There’s a lot of talent — albeit largely unproven at the collegiate level other than Boykin — and players are genuinely excited about Lakatos’ vision of an aggressive, physical secondary that stresses press coverage and interceptions. As Cuff said during the spring: “Coach Lakatos, he wants the ball.”
… but how much worse could it be than last year?
Georgia allowed 25 touchdown passes (the most in the SEC) and intercepted only 10 passes (the second fewest in the SEC) last season.
Georgia lost a fifth-round NFL draft pick, two UFAs (one of whom Tucker notes has already been cut by the team he signed with)… and Willie Martinez. No offense to the parties involved, but that hardly seems insurmountable.
