… could stand some better editing – there’s a reference to Jacob Park being in the mix for quarterback and some strange mention of LSU in the section about the schedule that’s a clear whiff – but it’s hard to argue with this:
Okay, so we know what Georgia is.
This is once again going to be another really, really good team that should flirt with a top ten ranking. There’s going to be a ton of NFL talent on both sides of the ball, there will be some moments when this looks like one of the best teams in college football, there will be talk of a Mark Richt hot seat despite all the success, and once again, Georgia is going to come up with a heartbreaking loss or two that keeps it from finally turning the corner.
Consistent winning seasons aren’t always enough for some programs – ask Nebraska – but coming up with three campaigns in the last four years with ten wins or more is impressive by any measure, especially in the SEC. This year’s Bulldog team might not have anything special compared to past Richt squads, but someday all the right breaks have to go this program’s way.
But the team has to make its own good fortune, too.
There was nothing that could’ve been done about the rash of injuries in 2013, but last year the Dawgs lost a shootout to a mediocre South Carolina team, and was inexplicably trampled over by Florida. They did what they needed to do against Arkansas, the destroyed Missouri in Columbia, and they destroyed Auburn. They were good enough, and they were certainly better than a Mizzou team that won its second straight East title. But that’s the way it is in the SEC world – being very, very good isn’t necessarily going to be good enough.
But even though there’s enough in the bad to win the East, and even though the team should be just good enough to think about going go the playoff, it’s Georgia.
It’s going to win ten games, and it’s going to be a lot of fun to watch on both sides of the ball.
And then 2016 will supposedly be the year.
Lather, rinse, repeat, etc.
If you want to stop reading stuff like this about yourselves, there’s an obvious solution, Dawgs.
