Georgia’s All-SEC linebacker Ramik Wilson recently confirmed he would return for his senior season, and with Wilson, among others, the Bulldogs return one of the most experienced rosters in the SEC.
Mark Richt hasn’t been interested in talking about next season this week while preparing for the Gator Bowl, but his players have been.
Wilson says the Bulldogs are going to do big things next year, via Macon Telegraph.
“We’re gonna do big things next year. We’ve gotta stay together, keep improving, and we should win every game next year. There’s no doubt in my mind.”
Georgia’s defense loses one starter in DE Garrison Smith, and the team returns 17 of 22 starters. Yes, Aaron Murray will be gone, but now-starter QB Hutson Mason, who is getting valuable practice and playing time, returns to the lead the offense. The biggest area where missing pieces will need to be replaced is along the offensive line, where Georgia loses three starters, Chris Burnette, Kenarious Gates and Dallas Lee.

Here’s a look at next year’s very manageable schedule:
Aug. 30 – CLEMSON
Sept. 13 – at South Carolina
Sept. 20 – TROY
Sept. 27 – TENNESSEE
Oct. 4 – VANDERBILT
Oct. 11 – at Missouri
Oct. 18 – at Arkansas
Nov. 1 – vs. Florida (Jacksonville)
Nov. 8 – at Kentucky
Nov. 15 – AUBURN
Nov. 22 – CHARLESTON SOUTHERN
Nov. 29 – GEORGIA TECH
Like 2013, August and September starts tough again against Clemson and South Carolina, but the Dawgs trade LSU for Arkansas, and Auburn makes a trip back to Athens.
2014 could be Georgia’s year, but don’t we say that every year? Continuity won’t be a problem.
