The national media keeps hinting that it’s expecting bigger things from Georgia in Kirby Smart’s second season. Here, from an article about things to watch from spring football, comes this:
UGA is the textbook definition of a sleeping giant. The state produces plenty of blue-chip talent each year, and the SEC East remains a division ripe for the taking. The Bulldogs’ offense has two star running backs returning in Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, and quarterback Jacob Eason has a year of experience under his belt. For all the hype East division foe Tennessee has received lately, Georgia is the program that feels like it’s on the verge of exploding.
Not that the media gets this stuff right most of the time, but I expect the Dawgs to emerge from SEC Media Days as their choice to win the division this season. Which means it’s time to cue the GTP reader poll department.
