Georgia could be in for an interesting ride this year tons of talent is gone from both sides of the ball, but under Richt Georgia has recruited very well. With three stud running backs in the fold β Brown, Ware, and Lumpkin β I think Georgia should be in good shape. If Lumpkin is fully recovered, expect him to beat out Brown and Ware for the top HB spot.
The real question is going to be if DJ Shockley can be a productive QB. If he is, then Georgia may have a good year, maybe even a very good year. If DJ struggles early, then the Dawgs are going to be in for a long year.
Boise State is certainly a scary early test, but I see no reason why Georgia should not win with several points in hand. Everyone is making this game out to be the favorite pick for an upset, but I just do not see it happening. The game could be tight early, or even high scoring, but in the end I think Georgia will walk away with a win. Call it 34-17 for the opening salvo in the Shockley era.
