Greetings Sports Teaser fans and welcome to the fall; well almost fall! After taking a month off (I’m sure you didn’t even notice or miss me), we have reached the most glorious time of the year on the sports calendar. I’ll give you three guesses and the first two don’t count but you know what it is: Football! After a great summer on Tybee, it’s finally time for kickoffs around the country in pro and college football and you know who is very excited. OK there’s some pretty interesting baseball to talk about too, but we’ll get to that later. Right now: FOOTBALL!
Our Georgia Bulldogs are coming off a fantastic and unbelievable National Championship year in 2021. Yes, it really did happen! After 41 years we did it, folks! And I don’t think it will be another 41 years for the trophy in Athens. Despite losing five starting defensive players in the first round of the draft, an NFL record, the Dawgs should be playoff bound again, as I really don’t see them losing a game in the regular season. They will be favored by most likely double digits in every game (they’re 18-point favorites over Oregon in the season opener September 3 at the Mercedes-Benz Dome in Atlanta) and although they could slip up because they are 18 to 22-year-olds, even one loss should keep them in the hunt for the playoffs.
