Saying that Georgia fans have high expectations is akin to calling Nick Saban a good football coach; you are simply understating the obvious.
Regardless, there are a number of folks around college football who think first-year Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart is equipped to appease his hungry supporters. ESPN’s KC Joyner is simply the latest to join that group.
In a Tuesday interview on The Paul Finebaum Show, Joyner labeled Georgia as one of his “super sleepers” to make the College Football Playoff this season.
- “You’re talking about the best pass defense in the SEC”
- The running game returns tailbacks Sony Michel, who “can play a lot better than he did (last year),” and star Nick Chubb
- “The sky is the limit” for freshman quarterback Jacob Eason
- Elite performance on the recruiting trail: “Georgia is recruiting just as well as Ohio State is”
So let it be known. If Joyner stops by Athens this August, at least a couple of Georgia fans might be inclined to buy the man a round.
