I know I say it every year but this is the year. This is the year that I have been waiting for since that faithful day at the age of three years old that I became a fan of the Georgia Bulldogs. This is the year that I will be able to say “told you so” to everyone who doubts me. This is the year that I will not be heartbroken. This is the year that the Georgia Bulldogs will win the national championship.
First of all, I am aware I am optimistic to a fault when it comes to my Dawgs. I am aware of the players who have left. I am aware of the injuries we had last year. I am aware of it all. I am also aware that the team we are returning is one of the best chances we have had to win a national championship - and not only can they win it, but they will win it.
Winning a national championship in college football is one of the most difficult things to do, because unlike other sports, you don’t have a true postseason tournament or playoff that gives chances to teams who otherwise wouldn’t be there (and I don’t want to hear about this new playoff system, because it’s still not a “playoff”).
But I think the planets are aligning, and the pieces are in place. Georgia has what they need to get it done, and the motivation to do it. I don’t want to hear about the defense and how many starters were lost, or how bad things were. This is a different group, with a different leader. They’ll be fine.
Any fan can make a blanket statement that their team will win it all but I am here to support my prognostication with reason and logic. Below are five reasons why I know the Georgia Bulldogs will win the national championship this year. Please read the whole thing before commenting at the bottom and telling me how crazy I am… it’s only fair.
