Mark Richt was on ESPN’s First Take program doing a backflip into a UGA pool in street clothes. Asked how he liked his squad this year as compared to the rest of the SEC, he first praised the overall strength of the league, saying, “We know this league is tough.”
Richt likes this UGA squad for three primary reasons: 1. We finally have an experienced offensive line that is “ready to lead the way.” 2. We have the “best kicker/punter tandem in the country.” 3. We have a defense that will “get after” other teams with aggression.
I say: add the best receiver in the country, two strong running backs, two stud fullbacks, depth and talent at tight end, a fast defense, and a quasi-manageable schedule featuring an unusual number of conference opponents expecting some growing pains…and this looks like a potentially big year ‘Tween the Hedges.
