What are the expectations for Georgia Football this year? In the dark cold nights of February, will you look back at the 2023 Football season as good, great, or disappointing?

Georgia is chasing history. It could be the first modern-era college football team to win 3 in a row. In all honesty, I want the third more than I did the second title.

Going into last season, I made a promise not to get upset all that much if Georgia lost a game. I have to tell you, it worked for a while. It was stress-free. Then that Missouri game happened and I was losing my mind. I reverted back to the feelings of the past before we finally got that first title since ‘80.

But in the 4th quarter of the Ohio State game, a little more calm. I was putting things in perspective. I was wrestling with the idea Georgia was going to lose. But at the same time, I was confident. Strange feeling.

So, is this year going to be any different? Is the Larry Munson gene going to kick in when Georgia faces a little bit of adversity? I have no idea. Georgia one day in the near future will lose a game. How will the fanbase respond? Is Georgia going to lose a game this year?

The expectation for this Georgia team should be the playoffs. There is no excuse in the world that Georgia shouldn’t be in the playoffs. The talent on this team, I know this sounds dumb, should be better than last year. Given the talent and how the schedule works out to give Beck and the offense time to gel, Georgia should be 12-0 or 11-1.

I’ll take them going 12-0. But would you be disappointed if they lost 2 games this year? What would the mood be like around the fan base? Because in my mind, you never know what the future will hold. Georgia may never win another title in our lives.

Actually, that sounds hard to do, but it could happen. But with the SEC moving to 14 teams and the playoff expanding, that adds a little more room for Georgia to slip up and not get to the title game.

You never know what will happen in the future. You have to seize the moment. For Georgia, that should be the mindset. Who knows when this program will ever be this good again?

It will be interesting to see how the fan base reacts when Georgia loses a game. I’m also curious what the expectations are for this year’s team. My expectation, Georgia winning the whole thing again.
