I continue to love the mindset of this year’s team, and, yes, it all starts with Kirby Smart.
I’ll have the bye week to do a mid-season assessment of the 2017 edition of Georgia football here at the blog, but in the meantime, I’ll just say that the overall timing of the break couldn’t be better. Not just in terms of preparing for Florida — which, by the way, will be the next big subjective test for culture change in Athens — but also in terms of getting a few key players healthy and, maybe most importantly, having the opportunity to do a serious self-scouting job on the good and bad that’s gotten the Dawgs to 7-0.
I am mindful of the dreadful disappointment of the 2014 Cocktail Party game, but even with that, I am more optimistic about Georgia’s chances this year than I’ve been in a while.
One more thing. If nothing else, this team should make it a mission not to let Nick and Sony leave without ever knowing the pleasure of beating the Gators. They don’t deserve that ignominy.
