In an episode of “Always College Football,” McElroy discussed Georgia being a potential dynasty in college football. He explained how Georgia replenished its roster and benefitted from losing the key players from last season:
“I think what’s fascinating about this Georgia team is that it’s almost beneficial to have those guys from last year, those incredibly talented players, maybe one of the most talented rosters we have ever seen. It might have actually worked to their benefit to have those guys depart,” McElroy said. ” Why? Because it created an edge for all those talented newcomers, for all those guys that were highly recruited, then played sparingly last year. They were now going to be thrusted into the starting lineup.”
In 2022, Georgia reached the College Football Playoff for the 3rd time in program history and for the 2nd consecutive season. Georgia heads into the Playoff with a 13-0 record and will look to remain undefeated for the rest of the way.
No. 1 Georgia is set to take on No. 4 Ohio State in the Peach Bowl on Dec. 31.
