The Georgia Bulldogs are 75 days away from the start of what fans hope will be the resurgence of the program. They get to start off with a team that will be in top five in the country and brings back the majority of their players.
Boise State, despite what many Georgia fans are hoping, will very likely not be pushed around like they were back in 2005, when the Bulldogs beat the Broncos 48-13.
Georgia struggled last year to what was by far their worst season under Mark Richt as they went 6-7 and finished with an uninspiring effort against Central Florida in the bowl game.
Gone are A.J. Green, Justin Houston, Washaun Ealey, Akeem Dent, and Clint Boling. In coming are Isaiah Crowell, John Jenkins, Ray Drew, and Malcolm Mitchell.
We are 75 days from the next stage of the Georgia football program. The members of the “Dream Team” are all in Athens and are all working hard to make this team better. Christian Robinson and Aaron Murray have been phenomenal leaders to this point and the team has stayed out of trouble so far this offseason.
Todd Grantham is excited with what he will be able to do this year as it is the second season of the 3-4 in Athens, and many fans are expecting it to be much better this season.
Crowell(pictured right) is expected to be the next Knowshon Moreno from day one, while senior Caleb King is looking to make his final statement as a Bulldog.
Tavarres King is looking very comfortable about being the top receiver for the team this year, and Orson Charles may just be the best tight end in the country.
Ben Jones and Cordy Glenn will be bringing great veteran leadership to an offensive line that caught a lot of flack in 2010, but should be better this season.
Kwame Geathers looks to become a force this season as he was the Bulldogs’ most impressive player this spring. He will likely be helping out Jenkins at nose guard as well as playing some on the end.
USC transfer Jarvis Jones has many people thinking that he will be one of the top playmakers in the SEC this season, while Robinson, Alec Ogletree, Drew, and Cornelius Washington are looking to become top Dawgs themselves.
Brandon Boykin is back to man one of the cornerback positions, and fans are hoping that Sanders Cummings and Branden Smith will be help out and make some plays in the other corner position. Baccari Rambo and Jakar Hamilton will likely be manning the safety positions, and both will need to make more plays than they did last year.
The return of Boykin will make us once again a dangerous team in the return game, and the Bulldogs return the best 1-2 punch in kicking in Blair Walsh and Drew Butler.
The Bulldogs are 75 days from hopefully fulfilling their destiny and making a run at the SEC championship. The hopes and dreams of the entire Bulldawg Nation are riding the shoulders of guys like Murray, Crowell, and Robinson. This is a team of young men that understand the opportunity that has been giving to them, and they are looking to take with a ferocity that we haven’t seen from the program in a while.
Bulldawg Nation needs it, and step one is beating Boise State and showing that we can still play with the best of the best, regardless of what many think of the competition.
