Georgia Bulldogs Start to Shift From Basketball to Football as Seasons Change


The Georgia Bulldogs had another unfortunate short stay in the NCAA Basketball Tournament, and now the focus in Athens shifts to life Between the Hedges.

The seasons are changing.

Yes, Spring has finally sprung, but for the Bulldog Nation, a different change is also occurring.

After a hard fought game against Michigan State in the Round of 64 of the 2015 NCAA Tournament, the Hoop Dawgs’ impressive and successful season has come to an end. Simultaneously, spring football practice has just started, and we are officially transitioning from basketball season to football season.

As always, there are high expectations for this year’s squad. Anything less than an SEC East division title will likely be  a disappointment. If the Dawgs are gonna get back to the Georgia Dome after a two-year drought, they have to get hard at work right now in the spring.

There are plenty of questions surrounding the Dawgs as they enter Spring, such as:

Who will be the starting quarterback?

What will the defense be like in its second year under coordinator Jeremy Pruitt?

How will the offense fare under new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer?

Can Nick Chubb make a push for the Heisman?

And of course,

Can the Bulldogs capture that elusive SEC Title?

Answers to all of those questions, and more, will begin to become clear with spring practices, and then on through the fall.

All eyes will be on prospective-starting quarterbacks Brice Ramsey, Jacob Park, and Faton Bauta as we try to see who’s most fit to lead the Dawgs on offense. Some thought at the end of last season that Ramsey would be the frontrunner, but Coach Richt has said that all three of them are on the same ground. Only time will tell.

We also get a chance to see how Nick Chubb has developed and improved this offseason. As a freshman in 2014, he was one of the most talented and scariest players in the country, so getting to see him back at work and how he has improved himself this spring will be exciting.

As for questions regarding the whole offensive and defensive units, we’ll get to see how they’re doing whenever Georgia has scrimmage days, and of course on G-Day, which is on April 11th.

Football is almost here again, DawgNation. In the meantime, sit back, relax, put some shorts on, and enjoy Spring.
