Georgia 2023 season preview: three-peat or bust!


With the start of the new college football season approaching quickly, it's time to take a quick glance at the defending National Champions, the Georgia Bulldogs.


Offense

How will the loss of Stetson Bennet to the L.A. Rams affect the high-octane offense? What is the new approach to an offense that was nearly impossible to slow? Who is going to step up and show that the Bulldogs still have it?


Returning is Carson Beck, who knows the offense and is the clear starter at quarterback. Is he the answer to all of the UGA fans' prayers? I think yes! Last season, Beck didn't see many touches, but from what he did see, he did fairly well with 4 touchdowns and 310 yards. If there's anything that Kirby Smart is good at, it's recruiting, and he obviously has a good eye for talent. There is no way in the world he would ever entrust his well-oiled machine to a player he didn't trust.

The second player to keep a close eye on is the most reliable player in all of college football, Brock Bowers. Bowers was virtually unstoppable last season. He recorded 942 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns on only 63 receptions! Plus, he doesn't show any signs of slowing down. This young man can run routes, block, and more importantly, catch (Yes, that's very important and can not be overlooked). He's a tight end who is basically a Swiss Army knife for the offense.


In the backfield, they're well-equipped with two outstanding seniors - Kendall Milton and Daijun Edwards. Milton's stats for last season were 85 rushes for 592 yards and 8 touchdowns and Edward's recorded 140 touches for 769 yards and 7 touchdowns. That's a very successful rushing game. They should have no problem getting more touches, and both stars should have a breakout rushing season, especially with the team going up against what could be the easiest schedule in all of the SEC.


Defense

The Bulldogs are starting out their season with the number-one-ranked defense in all of college football. The smallest player on their defensive line is 6' 5" 265. Needless to say, Georgia's got some big boys. Last season, they accumulated 35 sacks and 17 forced fumbles, and their opponents averaged only 14.7 points. Those are some elite numbers. Here are some players to watch out for in 2023.

Jamon Dumas-Johnson, the inside linebacker. With 70 total tackles, 45 of which were solo tackles, and 4 sacks last season, he's a force to be reckoned with. Though he had some legal problems with an arrest three weeks ago for street racing, he will be one of the leading tacklers for all of the SEC if he can keep his nose clean.


Zion Logue, the senior out of Lebanon, Tennessee, is expected to be the king of the D-line. Last season, Zion accounted for 16 total tackles, 10 of which were solo tackles, and one forced fumble. The young man is 6' 5" 310 lbs. That's an NFL-caliber size. He's a big man with an eye for the football.


Final Assessment of Georgia

I see the Georgia Bulldogs winning the SEC East and playing either LSU or Alabama for the Conference Championship. If they succeed, I can definitely see them winning the National Championship again. I don't see any other teams being as competitive as LSU, 'Bama, or Georgia. The three-peat is very plausible, but will they rise up to the task? Only time will tell.
