Paul Finebaum explains why he gives Georgia a ‘very small’ chance to repeat in 2022
Paul Finebaum knows repeating as champion in college football is hard. The FBS ranks haven’t had a repeat champion since the College Football Playoff was implemented.
In fact, the last team to repeat as the national title winner was Alabama in 2011 and 2012.
So, can Georgia break that streak and win it all again in 2022? Finebaum joined “The Saturday Down South Podcast” to explain why he doesn’t see it in the cards:
“Very small number. I just don’t think it’s possible. There we go with a headline,” Finebaum said on the latest episode of The Saturday Down South Podcast. “I think they’ll be very good. The Stetson Bennett conversation will carry us for a long time. But there’s just so many missing parts.
“I feel like I’m watching one of these Alabama teams of any year. Pick your poison. I go, ‘They’re really good, they’re a top-5 team, but they’ve lost too much.’ It’s a compliment in a way. I think they’ll be in transition. That doesn’t mean they can’t be hitting on all cylinders. The issue with them becomes who will beat them. The schedule is much better than last year but I do see some road games late that could always be tricky … even if they run the table, which they could, I suspect Alabama will be too much.”
Georgia’s annual G-Day spring game is on Saturday, so we’ll get our first look at the new group of Bulldogs then. Will they look title-worthy?
