Welcome back to GYSB, and How 'Bout Them Dawgs! 13 days away now. You can practically taste it!
First off, let's deal with the bad news. Zamir "Zeus" White, the second coming of #34 in the eyes of some, blew out his ACL yesterday in Saturday's scrimmage. Very sad. Some naysayers are already wanting to point blame at Kirby for having Zeus working special teams, but that's crap. You want your best players out there. The one silver lining is that we do seem pretty deep at running back w/ James Cook continuing to impress in addition to our 1,2,3 punch of D'Andre, Holyfield & Herrien. Hopefully Zamir will make a full recovery & will be ready to go for the 2019 campaign.
A lot of positive chatter about the receiving corps w/ Newton County's own JJ Holloman, in particular, getting kudos. I honestly believe this is the best group of receivers the Dawgs have had in some time. With our wealth of talent at QB, RB, tight ends & O-line, it's not surprising that some are predicting UGA could average upwards of 40 points a game this season.
But there are question marks for many, especially on the other side of the ball.
We'll save most of that for our 2018 UGA Football Preview that will be out next week.
At any rate, it's almost here & that's exciting!
So let's check the pulse of the Dawgnation & take...
