Georgia running back Todd Gurley
Jeremy Pruitt's Arrival
Undoubtedly, the story of the offseason has been Todd Grantham's departure for Louisville and Pruitt's arrival from Florida State. Pruitt has been on the coaching staff of each of the last three national championship teams, and expectations are undeniably high.
Fans are looking for the return of a feared Georgia defense after Grantham's efforts seemed to saddle players with confusion far too often. Pruitt is placing an emphasis on speed and simplicity and has spiced things up by increasing competition for spots in the lineup.
This Saturday's G-Day game will give fans the first glimpse into the changes he's made and his coaching style.
Hutson Mason Settles In
Pruitt's arrival has taken most of the attention away from the Bulldogs offense, and that may be a good thing for Hutson Mason as he settles in as the full-time starter for the Bulldogs.
Obviously, he has a host of weapons surrounding him and has the knowledge of the system to be successful. Georgia fans are looking for three C's from Mason this spring:
Consistency: He started slowly in his two starts last season, so that needs to be rectified.
Command: This offense is his now; he's not merely a substitute.
Chemistry: Dropped balls plagued Mason's comeback bid against Nebraska in the Gator Bowl. He and his receivers must get on the same page.
Todd Gurley's Health
Much to the delight of fans (and coaches and teammates), Todd Gurley has participated fully this spring. Georgia fans relish every opportunity to see the star running back in action, and this Saturday's scrimmage will be no different.
A healthy Gurley immediately makes Georgia a contender in the SEC.
