Georgia football concludes their season this Friday in the Liberty Bowl versus the TCU Horned Frogs.
The 2010’s have been a roller coaster for Georgia football thus far. In 2010 the Bulldogs finished 6-7 and Mark Richt was on the verge of being fired. Then Georgia won the SEC East finished 10-4 and in 2011, and 12-2.
They suffered a setback with the injury filled 2013 season and ended 8-5, but they bounced back with 10-3 seasons in 2014 and 2015. But that wasn’t enough to keep Richt in Athens so he was fired a year ago, So far in Kirby Smart’s first year the Bulldogs are 7-5.
For decades the Bulldogs have hung around the 9-to-10 win mark. In fact, since 1997, Georgia averages 9.47 wins a year. And while it’s fans should always be proud with that kind of winning percentage, it also makes a fan base hungry when that win percentage does not produce championships.
Georgia football has almost endured Kirby Smart’s first full season in Athens and it was not one that lives up to years past. But on the recruiting trail, the Bulldogs might be having their best season yet. Plus Nick Chubb and Sony Michel are staying at Georgia for one more year.
That adds a lot of hype and expectations for 2017, but what about 2018, 2019 and beyond? What goals should Georgia football set to try to accomplish over the next five years?
