Don’t know if it will turn out to be an outlier or a presaging of what’s to come, but, fresh from the Sporting News, here’s a way-too-early top 25 projection for the 2017 season:
Here’s the team that will be talked about than anybody else in the offseason. Nick Chubb and Sony Michel stayed in school, and Jacob Eason should make the jump as a sophomore. At least that’s what we’re counting on. Kirby Smart should be excited about Year 2. Bulldogs fans will be.
That’s good for second in the conference, behind only (who else?) Alabama.
That throwaway year narrative may get a little harder to sell. Just sayin’.
