Five Reasons Why Georgia Will Succeed in 2010
What a dismal and terrible offseason Georgia has had.
Before the G-Day game Zach Mettenberger, the best QB at the time, was kicked off the team.
Then Christan LeMay was the second best QB in the nation before the recruit found himself in hot water.
Then the Damon Evans, the AD at Georgia, was arrested for DUI.
This has hurt Georgia's reputation after a 8-5 season which put Mark Richt on the hot seat.
But I see light in all this darkness for Georgia and here's five reasons why fans should be pumped for this season.
No. 5: The Schedule
Unlike the last three years 2010 brings a much easier schedule for the Bulldogs.
Their toughest being either the stretch of playing South Carolina and Arkansas back-to-back or playing Florida.
Tennessee is in rebuilding and Georgia proved they can beat rival Tech even when they are at their worst while Kentucky and Vanderbilt are Kentucky and Vanderbilt.
Nine or 10 wins should be expected.
No.4: Ealey and King
Georgia is known for producing great running backs and is always feared for their running game.
In the second part of the 2009 season a man named Washaun Ealey showed everyone why; a freshmen was able to rip the defense of Auburn, Kentucky, and Georgia Tech.
Caleb King is the second deadly dose of the running game who backed up Moreno in 2008.
No.3: The O-line
The offensive line for Georgia was pretty good last year and will only get better this season.
The best being senior OT Cling Boling who is known as one of the most versatile linemen in the SEC.
Boling will have help from a couple of great players in Trinton Sturdivant and Tanner Strickland.
No. 2: A.J Green
To say one player will get a team an SEC title is ridiculous but to say they are a key piece to a SEC title is about right when your talking about A.J Green.
Green is a freak of nature when it comes to football. The 6'4" 204 pound receiver can catch anything within a six foot radius.
He will catch the ball even if you perfectly cover him when he's backed into a tight corner.
A DB can only hope the QB throws a bad pass or Green will catch it.
No.1: Mark Richt
To say Richt is a bad coach would be the same as saying Notre Dame is not overrated by ESPN again.
The fact is Richt can coach as he has 90 wins in just nine seasons. For those who don't want to do the math that's a 10 win average for each year.
In fact for every year Richt did not obtain 10 wins he had his best seasons the year after.
In 2001 Richt went 8-4. Not to bad for his first year the following year Georgia went 13-1, won the SEC and the Sugar Bowl, and finished third.
In 2006 Richt went 9-4 but the year after Richt led Georgia to a 11-2 record, a Sugar Bowl win, and a number two ranking.
Well now Georgia did not obtain 10 wins.
Can his magic continue?
I say yes.
