Many were shocked that Georgia didn’t win the SEC East last year, after surprising losses to both South Carolina and Florida allowed Missouri to take the division crown. The Bulldogs should be the class of the division in 2015 though, and that should be enough to keep the team relevant nationally. They also return a number of starters on both sides of the ball – including stud running back Nick Chubb.
Whether or not Georgia actually winds up competing for an SEC crown probably comes down to whether it gets solid quarterback play, considering that senior Hutson Mason has graduated. The Bulldogs will probably be led by redshirt sophomore Brice Ramsey, but it’s also possible that either redshirt freshman Jacob Park or redshirt junior Faton Bauta gets the nod. Regardless, the Bulldogs return four of their five starters on the offensive line, so there should be decent protection for whoever wins the job.
Lastly, as we’re all aware, if Georgia can win the SEC East and avoid suffering multiple losses, it should have the opportunity to play itself into the Playoff in the SEC title game. Obviously, that won’t be an easy contest, regardless of who’s lined up on the other side.
