Phil Steele’s 2016 magazine will hit the stands soon. In the meantime, he’s doing plenty of promo work for it. He did a little Atlanta sports talk and discussed Georgia’s prospects here. A summary:
He sees UGA as a good team and doesn’t see a downfall and with a healthy returning starting line, they could be the team to beat in the SEC East. He likes the schedule and winning the East is one step from the CFB Playoffs. He thinks Eason needs to win the starting QB position and will win it in Athens.
Unfortunately, he really likes Tennessee’s chances to win more.
“And Georgia fans, don’t be turds. Enjoy this. Soak it up. It’s awesome. If you don’t win this year, it’s still not a failure. It’s a heck of a run. Back-to-back in the Playoff era hasn’t been done. So, to ask for a third I feel like it’s gluttonous. I feel like it’s not OK. But we’ll be in the mix.”-- David Pollack, On3.com, 5/9/23
