Yes, it could be the year. But as we've seen, a lot of things have to come together/break your way for a championship season to happen. Our offense is full of question marks- from signal caller, WR, TE, and OL. Not a great place to start your season but we have the guys to step in at each position group. At this point our odds seem worse than recent years dating back to 2017. Who would have thought last year LSU would churn out a generational offense? Maybe UGA is that team this year or perhaps it's someone else. Or maybe it's an "ugly" season with lots of parity and there is no clear cut #1? As of now I'll take the latter.
Repeating just got tougher: LSU star Ja’Marr Chase reportedly plans to opt-out to prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft
Does he remain on scholarship?
I thought the same thing.. I think the author got too caught up in the teams rather than his original point.. “Alabama is still Alabama” is a lazy argument for this home field advantage article..
BOOM!! Huge for the future of our offense. Reminds me of Orson Charles with his size/build, and explosive speed. Not the biggest TE but should be dangerous over the middle and up the seam!
If SEC teams lost their starting QB to a positive COVID-19 test, who would hold steady and who would falter?
Maybe I missed something, but where is the rest of the SEC teams? No opinion? Did he forget? Or is there another unseen category for the likes of Tenn, UK, Vandy, etc?
94- I agree, Davis is a key returnee, particularly in the run game. I also think his analysis of our personnel is pretty hit or miss. (Barnett and Reese are not “key” departures and Dean is definitely a breakout candidate.) Also, what does this mean..? “The loss of personnel at safety and defense is a concern but one that can’t be mitigated.” Losing Reed’s experience at safety is a loss but isnt the whole article about the defense? And does he mean can be mitigated with the “next man up” roster?
I get the idea of wanting to “build” an unstoppable SEC WR from different players around the league, but let’s just call him J Chase from LSU. LOL
I wonder what UGA’s returning production % would be if Newman’s stats were somehow incorporated to offset Fromm’s (passing)/Swift’s (rushing) departing numbers. Maybe even throw in the TE transfer from FSU. Maybe SDS could figure that out!?
Week 3 UGA @ Bama: With teams fairly equal in talent, special teams often dictates the victor. What if it comes down to a final field goal attempt for the Tide to take the lead as the final seconds tick off the clock!? I’m guessing, from recent history, the kick splits the middle of the uprights 40 feet up the net... with the tide yet again breaking the Dawgs hearts. LOL
If every SEC East team could bring back 1 former player, who would it be? (P.S. QBs are not allowed)
My East picks I posted a few days ago: UF- K Neal UGA- M Hardeman, A Thomas, or R Smith (I know our d is stacked but could you imagine Smith as the ring leader!?) UK- J Allen Mizz- S Richardson or Aldon Smith SC- M Lattimore Tenn- D Barnett or E Berry Vandy- Z Cunningham Seems pretty solid still. Though I do like the J Matthews pick, I thought he might now to “recent” enough. Plus Cunningham was a stud for the Dores D!
Mathis is faster than Plumlee?? Dang, that’s new to me but if it’s true we gotta find a role for him.. really wish we could’ve secured Plumlee’s commitment and found a scholarship for him!
Neat look behind the recruiting curtain. Columbia looks like a decent little college town but man it doesn’t hold a candle to Athens. Go Dawgs!
Getting rid of any of The Office characters listed above would seriously diminish the quality of the show... impossible question but the logic makes sense. My nickname is Bo from the Auburn legend, though I picked it at 3 while he was in the pros playing both football and baseball and before I realized he was an AU guy... lol
So Bama has 7 and the rest of the SEC combined has 7... including a punter and transfer OL who may not be eligible? Sheesh...
thewitt- good point, when did Richardson get drafted?
That’s arrogant of you, cojones. He clearly was just making his prediction for UGA, not thinking they were left off the list.
For the East UF- K Neal UGA- M Hardeman, A Thomas, or R Smith (I know our d is stacked but could you imagine Smith as the ring leader!?) UK- J Allen Mizz- S Richardson or Aldon Smith SC- M Lattimore Tenn- D Barnett or E Berry Vandy- Z Cunningham
Ooohhh yea Miller would be nice! But I wonder if he is “recent” enough?
Lol! Gotta love a rivalry jab
Bama- OJ Howard or Q Williams Ark- Ragnow Aub- D Brown LSU- D White Miss St- F Cox Ole Miss- Nkemdechi T A&M- M. Garrett (Yea it’s obvious, but it’s obvious for a reason)
Nash- I agree. I can’t, for the life of me, think of why Cowherd lists GA Tech as a good program left off the list! He lost any credibility when he said that for this ranking... I look at this arbitrary ranking within the past 20 years. I might throw up, but given this “All Time” coach debate, I’d probably put UF in the top tier with Spurrier/Meyer as great options.
Agreed.. You don’t see traps like that on many QBs.. sheesh.
Locks would be UGA & A&M Toss ups would be LSU and UF Underdog would be SC
It would be a historic milestone for UGA basketball if Edwards goes #1 overall. I’m thinking top 3-4 though, just to be safe.
Interesting takes. I like the Penn State and Iowa State bets the best.
Soooo Mullen’s offense is lauded as elite/genius while using Franks as a positive example and not recognizing Trask until an injury ? It was plainly obvious that UF improved AFTER Franks went down and Trask stepped in. How could an offensive guru not recognize the difference in QB? Oh and obviously Franks still has a year left.. What happens if he comes close or meets/exceeds his offensive numbers at UF while playing for an inferior Arkansas?
He’s overrated! He’s elite! Here’s the evidence showing why there’s still such a strong divide on Kellen Mond
I agree. To be elite you also have to be consistently great and raise the level of your whole team, (see Burrow, Joe) which Mond hasn’t done (yet). I think he’ll be in the SEC’s top 5 QBs this year.
Seems like Loy could see the field in a Taysum Hill type roll.
I know I see through my red and black filter, but I’d put the LSU QB, Brennen or something like that, above Trask. Trask doesn’t seem like anything more than a game manager, IMO. Maybe I’m wrong, but I’d put in the middle of the pack, not the lead dog...
You think?? I don’t see him getting drafted in the 1st round, maybe not even drafted at all...
