Sports Illustrated has Kirby’s Dawgs ranked # 2 for 2018 with 3 of the top 5 all SEC teams and with 6 of the top 25 SEC teams. I thought The SEC was down or something ?

CBS Sports Dennis Dodd has Georgia Bulldogs # 3 for 2018 in preseason poll on CBS with 5 SEC teams in the top 25.

Quarterback? Check. Running backs? Check. You will become familiar with D’Andre Swift and incoming recruit Zamir White. Roquan Smith is the biggest loss on defense. Oh, and the SEC East remains soft. Pencil in the Dawgs for another trip to Atlanta — at least.

Who does Kirby lose after this 2017-2018 stellar season of # 2 Final AP Poll and # 2 Final Coaches’ Poll Consensus # 2 season – we know he loses 21 all who started here for Kirby – 2 or 3 we have been told about in addition – still others with decisions to make. We have full complement coming-in for them. Get it done in 2018. Prediction 12-3 lose too much.

Boy we lose a lot.  Of course readers to THIS BLOG right here knew that before 2017 season began that 2017 was THE YEAR not 2018.  In fact in THIS POST last year I posted that I guarantee that Kirby WINS The SEC Championship 2017.  And I said THEN that Kirby loses a ton after 2017.

 

Now everyone wants to say how great Kirby is going to be 2018. I was right on target last year.  2018 is a new year now.

 

12-3
