Georgia football isn’t another version of the 2019 LSU super squad that won a national championship and fell apart the following season. Instead, Georgia is a program that will sustain success and continue to have it in the future.

The Dawgs lost players to the NFL. We know that at this point in the offseason, and it’s something that every expert on television reminds Georgia fans daily. However, it’s mind-boggling that people don’t realize how much the Dawgs reloaded and how much talent there still is on their team.

Maybe they want to see it for themselves, but suggesting that Georgia will get upset not once but up to three times this season is ridiculous. The Dawgs aren’t one-hit-wonders but a program that has bullied the SEC East since head coach Kirby Smart took over in 2016.

That time the Dawgs spent building up the roster, landing top recruiting classes, and putting in the work are just a few reasons why suggesting Georgia is a one-hit-wonder is downright silly.

Georgia football is built to last, and that success isn’t leaving the program.

One of the best things Smart said was how Georgia wouldn’t get hunted in 2022 but how they would do the hunting themselves. However, his second best quote was about sustaining success.

"“We didn’t build this program on hoping for one-year-wonders or hoping for one opportunity. We built the program to be sustained. You sustain it by what you do every single day,” Smart said at SEC Media Days. “This program was built to be here for a long time.”"

The man said it himself, and he knows better than anyone what kind of program Georgia is. Smart knows when to lay down the hammer with a comment like that, and no one should take that lightly.

He told the world that Georgia wasn’t going anywhere after falling in the first national title game, he repeated it after the 2019 season, and this is his way of rephrasing that sentence for future successes.

They won a national championship, but now it’s about winning more and sustaining that level of success in Athens. There is a reason he is the highest-paid college football coach, and that is because Smart is an evil genius the Dawgs are lucky to have.

He knows how to win, and if he continues to recruit players at this level, get them to buy in, and have coaches that understand his culture — Georgia will keep contending for national championships.

One-hit-wonders happen all the time in sports and music, but for this Georgia football program, it’s a term that shouldn’t be associated with because Smart has put in the work to keep this success going.
