Georgia are considered by many to be one of the top 5 teams for the upcoming 2021 college football season. Bulldogs Head Coach Smart kirby said after the 2017 season Georgia was not going anywhere. After Georgia moved up to 11-1 for three consecutive seasons, qualified for three consecutive SEC championships and reached a national college football playoff championship, Georgia ended the 2020 season at 8-2 and won their fourth bowl game under the direction of the fifth-year head coach. Smart kirby. It was Smart’s second consecutive New Years Six Bowl victory and his 10th win over a Top 10 opponent as a head coach. Bulldogs are now 52-14 under fifth-year head coach Smart kirby, with a 32-9 record in conference.
To add to that, the Dawgs ranked in the country’s No.4 Class and were added to the list through the Transfer Portal. Georgia have recruited at an elite level over the past four years, signing the country’s No.1, No.2, No.1 and No.4 classes in the 247Sports Team Class ranking, giving them the No. 2 in college football according to 247Sports Team Talent Composite.
“We are obviously excited about this game, it looks like it was a long time coming”, Smart kirby said earlier this week. “We had a good camp in terms of working on ourselves. We moved to Clemson last week, Wednesday or Thursday, we started working on these guys. We got a chance to watch them in the summer and we got the chance to watch them in They’re Really Talented, probably one of the best defenses I’ve ever seen come back in terms of number of starts and number of games played, the volume of experience is unmatched anywhere anytime and anywhere and I’ve been in college football for a long time, just in terms of how much football these guys have played.
“Then you know their quarterback got some experience last year when Trevor (Lawrence) was down, he’s got one of the biggest arms I’ve ever seen, he’s very talented, very hard to defend. It’s like every game, it’s hard to defend when you play these guys, it’s like there’s no time to rest. As for special teams , they’ve always had good specialists and they continue, it’s a rich historical tradition as both teams have always had great specialists, and I think the special teams will play a big result in this game.
