Georgia Football: Buying or Selling? Preseason Edition

Some statements about Georgia football, and we want to know if you are buying or selling on them.

After a huge success with our series of Opinion Week pieces, we wanted to continue talking to the Georgia Bulldogs nation, and find out where you stand on certain questions regarding the Georgia football program.

We’ll update this as the season progresses, and some of these questions may be answered in full before too long (depending on how the season progresses). We’ll even add in a “standing pat” option, for those of you who are on the fence and not ready to commit yet.

Conference championships, national championships, Heisman trophy, playoffs, bowl games – lots of things can come into question as to whether or not you’re buying or selling.

Georgia will see a big improvement from the 2013 season

Dawn of the Dawg says: We’re buying. The dead weight has been thrown overboard, the defensive coordinator has been replaced, and the team looks stronger than ever. Definite improvement coming.

Georgia will win the SEC East this season

Dawn of the Dawg says: We’re buying. Not only should UGA win the East, but they should be able to put it away early.

Georgia will win the SEC Championship this season

Dawn of the Dawg says: We’re standing pat. Getting to the SEC Championship Game is much different than winning it. We like the Dawgs chances, but we can’t buy or sell on this one until we’ve seen more of Bama and LSU. (Yes, we intentionally left off Auburn).

Georgia will be one of the four playoff teams this year

Dawn of the Dawg says: We’re standing pat. So much of this whole College Football Playoff thing is unknown, and without any real hard criteria to determine who’s chosen, it’s hard to project.

Todd Gurley will win the Heisman Trophy this season

Dawn of the Dawg says: We’re selling. Not because Gurley isn’t the best running back in the nation or because he can’t win it. But because the Heisman voting is so fickle, and with the touches by Georgia’s backs being split up so much, he may have a tough time convincing voters.

ESPN College Game Day will return to Athens, Ga. this season

Dawn of the Dawg says: We’re buying. With so many big games potentially going down in Athens this season, it will be hard for the folks at ESPN to not make a return, particularly with the great turnout for the LSU game last year. (Trivia fact: CGD has only been to Athens three times in the history of the show).

Georgia has a good chance to win the National Championship this season

Dawn of the Dawg says: We’re buying. Georgia has a lot of the pieces in place to be a National Championship contender, and the addition of DC Jeremy Pruitt may prove to be bigger than many think.

    No comments and 75 votes. Look, College GameDay will be here for Clemson, after we taunted their team coming down the steps at Little Death Valley last year. We will win that. Then, we lose to South Carolina in Game 2, on the road. That does it for us in College GameDay. It also drops us down in the Polls, significantly. Heisman Trophy for the # 1 Running Back in the NFL Draft after the season ? Not going to happen, not in this Pass-Happy Offense # 65 in Rushing nationally and that was with Todd Gurley II. Our QB cannot stretch the field, with wounded ducks on deep passes – such as his opening salvo in Our G-Day Spring Game – thrown all of 29 yards I marked it off, and it was thrown straight up into the air like a Punt. SEC Championship ? Please ! We did not even practice our Special Teams # 100 in the nation in the G-Day Game. Whose decision was that ? Our secondary, already the weakest in the nation, lost 3 starters this off-season one to Auburn and two to Louisville. Our # 65 Rushing Offense lost the Blocking Tight End and 3 of the Starting OL.
    National Championship 2014-2015 up-coming season ? That’s rich, which to accomplish this 54-26 program Top 10 All-Time in Wins, has instead been most recently # 22 in the nation – averaging in 13-game seasons for the top teams, 9 wins and 5 losses or 4 losses these latest 6 years now and counting. This up-coming season more of the same – Standing Pat. Once Mark Richt was 81 percent Win Percentage going into the 2005 season. He was 16-13 vs teams who were Top 25 in the Polls way back then in those years 2001 through 2007 seasons – his 1st half of his career here. Since he is 7-22 in the next 29 games vs teams ranked in the Top 25 these most recent 6 seasons by Stark Contrast.
    To Win the NC 2014-2015 season, Mark Richt would not have to beat Top 25 teams, but Top 10 teams : # 1 in the play-offs, # 2 Auburn, # 3 in the play-offs, # 4 South Carolina on the road, # 5 Missouri on the road, # 7 Alabama in The SEC Championship Game, and # 8 Clemson to begin the season.
    Jeremy Pruitt has been notably quiet recently – and with good reason. This is not a complete football team this up-coming season, now is it ?
    We cannot return kick-offs, nor prevent opponents from doing so against us; cannot return punts fair catching them all, nor stop opponents from doing so with all our walk-ons. We’ve had another off-season of turmoil. Our Offensive Coordinator said yesterday that we are NOT to look for him to run the football 2014-2015, that he’s a Pass-Happy Coordinator, only rushing the football when the game is at-hand.
    We are NOT beating all these Top 10 teams. FSU, last year for example, only had to beat # 8 Clemson and # 2 Auburn to Win the NC 2013 season, and now Mark Richt has to beat all five of the Top 5 and # 7 and # 8.
    Get real.
    2014-2015 will not be any different this up-coming season, Standing Pat, than we have been. It’s 9-5 or 9-4 if we don’t make it to The SEC Championship Game vs # 7 Alabama – and, everyone knows it.
    I’d like nothing better than to beat Florida State, Clemson, Auburn, South Carolina, Florida, Missouri, Oregon and Alabama – but, excuse me ? You look at each individual game and say oh we can win that game, but 7, if Florida doesn’t lose every game to a team even making a bowl game again this season, 8
