Georgia bulldogs2016 record: 8–5
Expect a breakout season from quarterback Jacob Eason, who started as a true freshman last year, and from the Bulldogs’ defense across the board, which was inexperienced in 2016. Nick Chubb and Sony Michel may be the best running back duo in the country, and they’ll take the heat off Eason as he continues to develop.
I’m sure that’s the plan, anyway. Whether it comes to fruition depends on an offensive line that develops and a coaching staff that becomes more capable on game day.
One thing’s more apparent. Kirby Smart’s honeymoon period is about done, at least in the eyes of the national media. We’ll see if that’s the case with the fan base soon enough.
