The trendy pick is for Georgia to Win The SEC East and face-off against Alabama in year 2 of the Kirby rebuilding program. After 2015 in which Mark Richt was fired Mark Richt lost 22 seniors. You know ? The dream team who averaged 4 losses a season for their 6 years here. All 22 seniors Mark Richt’s last year were all 22 starters for us. So 2016 was destined to be a rebuilding year. You can see that ever so dramatically that there will not be a Bulldogs’ player in the NFL Draft now. We have so much youth 10 players who never played for Mark Richt STARTED for Kirby 2016.
The excitement for 2017 begins this morning breaking training to start-off our Spring Practice and then the annual G-Day Game a month from tomorrow 22 April 2017 Saturday.
More than anything we have to fix the offense and special teams this Spring as we welcome some Freshmen redshirted and some not played much last year as Freshmen who join a few of our # 2 ranked Scout.com recruiting class early enrollees.
The bulk of that # 2 ranked recruiting class Scout.com comes in in the Fall and they certainly have brought a huge amount of excitement with 16 of them ranked in the Top 200 of the ESPN RecruitingNation.com Overall 2017 recruits and 15 Signees for us Top 100 Overall in either the 247Sports.com Composite Scout.com or ESPN RecruitingNation.com.
With 3300 signed recruits 2017 by FBS schools you can see we got more than our fair share of the very elite players.
You know ?
The ones who play here 3 years and get drafted.
So there is NO TIME for redshirting or holding back our freshmen this season.
4 True Freshmen Quarterbacks in just The SEC alone 2016 were named STARTERS.
It’s 2017 : You play your best players Freshmen or not.
