Let's get this party started...
GEORGIA NATTY +475 (BoL)
Never hit Natty's this early but with the odds at nearly 5-1 at BoL and sitting behind Bama and Ohio State I think its the best we'll see def not a better deal closer to pre-ssn unless something drastic happens ... The big picture questions got answered for me the main one being how rich do the TE/Rec corps look and think we might be saying this is one of the best receiving arsenals ever assembled .. there's at least one decent QB option in the cupboard behind Bennett with Beck and Vandagriff might be another one .. and wouldn't surprise or bother me if either one ultimately grab the top spot .. OL is the main concern but not one I can't get past to make a play just banking on Matt Luke to have a solid unit ..
Also for everything the D lost LY consider the effects of UGA retaining so much of their NFL talent the last couple years ... Whereas normally elite programs are prospecting from true soph or RS Freshman to step up that's not really the case here with a bunch of guys from the '19 and '20 class going into year 3 or 4 of the program. Some of them would normally be off to the NFL this year and they still have the extra recruiting cycle behind them .. That has led some guys entering the portal but this is about as good of a "big rebuild" situation as you can ask for .. Watch what happens to other teams that aren't really benefiting from the extra year of eligibility and didn't retain guys last year try to rebuild this year and think you'll see what I mean .. Anyway, the main thing to take solace in w UGA is the DL, all the great D's Kirby pumps out at UGA or Bama or Venables did at Clemson were all built DL first and this Dawg line looks super elite w Nolan Smith back and Jalen Carter might be the #1 pick next year, Beal is another good one from LY and already have a guy like Logue to be excited about .. there's another 10 or so guys behind them 1 to 3 years in the program waiting for their shot .. There's def some guesswork elsewhere but if the starting point of my big rebuild is maybe the best DL in CFB then I don't feel squeamish about rolling the dice a little that Kirby will figure it out w the other units ..
Unsure if we have another typical year with 2 or 3 legit horses and huge dropoff after but the odds offered are indicating this .. OSU offense might be the best out there but they were a long way off on D last couple years .. Think bama has a real glaring issue at WR we already saw a diff team w out Williams and Metchie in there LY and w Hall hitting the portal this could be a huge drop from what they've had the last 5ish years .. Robinson is another that'll be tough to replace .. otherwise their D looks to be pretty nasty .. Its possible another team strikes gold like LSU did with all the big time QB's and other talent in the portal but for these odds UGA def make sense to me ..
