The one thing that most every Georgia Bulldog fan can agree on is this: It will be an important year for Mark Richt and this football program.
A lot is riding on the revamped defensive staff and the introduction of the 3-4 defense to the team’s philosophy.
Many are expecting big gains from both and are hoping to see the Bulldogs make a return trip to the SEC Championship Game this season.
After all, if ever there were a year where the SEC East was going to be wide open, this is the year.
Florida is no longer being run by the mighty Tim Tebow, South Carolina won’t have Eric Norwood or Clifton Geathers to wreak havoc on the quarterback, Tennessee is in recovery mode, and Kentucky will be breaking in a new coach.
The time is now.
That said, there will be no fewer than five games on the schedule that could make or break the Georgia Bulldogs’ season.
No matter the chatter about a “hot seat”, these games will either fan the flames of dissension or tank the talk of the doubters.
