While spring practices might be canceled, it’s never too early for some predictions about Georgia football for the upcoming season.
Well that was certainly an eventful spring football period. Georgia football was one of the programs that could have really used a good spring practice period, but unfortunately due to novel coronavirus outbreak, the SEC canceled sports for the rest of the 2020 season, including all spring football games and practices.
That puts some teams in a bind and the Georgia Bulldogs are one of them. With only two starters returning on offense, a new offensive coordinator planning to run a more wide open and diverse offense and a grad transfer quarterback learning to play with new teammates, spring practice would have been critical into implementing all of this and creating some synergy between all of these new players.
All of these things are an added dimension into predicting how Georgia’s season will go, fair or not.
Looking at the slate of games for the Bulldogs this upcoming season, I think it is an easier schedule than 2019. Georgia is swapping out Notre Dame for a neutral site tilt against Virginia and Alabama will be the cross-division game, along with Auburn.
Florida will be a formidable challenge and Tennessee is looking to surprise this season, but don’t expect too much from Missouri, South Carolina or Vanderbilt this season.
I’m going to give my best shot as to how this season will play out for the Bulldogs in 2020.
