Georgia football has made it through the first year if the Kirby Smart era. The Bulldogs are 7-5, but what kind of team can Georgia expect in 2017?
2016 was a disappointing season for Georgia football. Georgia finished the regular season Saturday with a 7-5 record. Georgia could just as easily be 10-2 or 11-1 as optimists point out. But the Bulldogs could also just as easily be 3-8 if we’re being pessimistic.
At times Georgia looked like a well oiled machine. There were games where the offense performed wonderfully, there were others where they struggled to just get first downs. Defensively the Bulldogs were solid all season, but they rarely made the huge plays and in a few games had lapses that led to easy touchdowns.
Now that the 2016 regular season has concluded, what can fans expect out of Georgia football in 2017? Can Georgia return to their normal 10-win selves, or will the Kirby Smart era feature a slower start than what fans desire?
