The Georgia Bulldogs enter the 2017 season with a ton of hype and are being considered the early favorites for the SEC East. With expectations as high as always for the Bulldogs, can they finally live up to the expectations in 2017?
Year one under Kirby Smart was an up-and-down year for the Georgia Bulldogs, to say the least. The Bulldogs entered the season with high expectations and were lead by a true freshman quarterback in Jacob Eason. While Eason didn’t play horrendously throughout the season, the true freshman struggled to say the least.
The Bulldogs return a ton of talent on offense including a potential All-American running back in Nick Chubb, they also return a former highly touted tight end in Isaac Nauta. Add in Riley Ridley and a few others and there is plenty of firepower on offense for the Bulldogs. Their defense returns all but one starter and should be among the best in the country.
The Bulldogs enter the 2017 season with just as high as expectations and more talent but it remains to be seen if they can ever get over the hump. For a program that hasn’t won a league title since 2005, the 2017 season could end up being another disappointing year in Athens.
