Over the past two seasons, Georgia has played some of its best football in decades. With two SEC East titles, an SEC Championship, and a runner-up finish in the College Football Playoff, they don't seem to be going anywhere.

But one college football expert seems to think that the 2019 Georgia team could be even better than the two that came before them.

In a recent appearance on the SEC Radio Network via Saturday Down South, analyst Phil Steele boldly declared that the 2019 Georgia Bulldogs may be Kirby Smart's best team yet. He said that with their 12 returning starters, it could be even better than the team that went 11-3 in 2018.

“That’s a Georgia team that I think it’s the best team that they’ve put on the field under Kirby Smart so far... They’ve got six returning starters on offense, six on defense – an improved team over last year.”

Arguably the biggest player coming back is star quarterback Jake Fromm. The junior signal caller improved upon a strong 2017 with an even stronger 2018, and is a top NFL draft prospect in 2020.

Fromm has led the Bulldogs to a 24-5 record in his two seasons, and was one possession away from a national title as a freshman.

But Alabama still rules the SEC, and has thwarted Georgia in the national title game and the SEC Championship Game over the past two years.

Could 2019 be the year Georgia finally breaks through and wins it all?
