A.J. Green will never put on his silver britches and red jersey again for the Georgia Bulldogs.
He will enter the 2011 NFL Draft, a decision that we all knew would come the moment he stepped into the spotlight back in his freshman year.
But instead of looking back at what the Dawgs had with him—it's not like it was that much—let's look forward at what's ahead for the 2011 season.
I just have a gut feeling that it is going to be something special. The Georgia Bulldogs will do some amazing things next year—even with the departure of A.J. Green.
Todd Grantham's 3-4 defense will show massive improvements in the next season. It's not necessarily about the talent of the defense—they already have that—it's about the discipline of the players. And it's something that you will see a drastic improvement of in year two.
Even with Green's departure, the offense will be better in the second year of the Aaron Murray era. They will have a more consistent running game and a more balanced passing game.
Hopefully, and I do mean hopefully, Mike Bobo will show confidence in Aaron Murray and the offense through his play-calling. I have followed it very closely the last couple years and he just isn't one that takes many chances.
It was easy for him to take chances with a talent like A.J. Green, but he just really didn't show much faith in freshman QB Aaron Murray last year.
Here are 10 things that A.J. Green's departure to the NFL means to the 2011 Georgia Bulldogs.
And yes, remember that these are BOLD predictions.
