Georgia’s Chance to Make College Football History Critiqued

The Georgia Bulldogs won their second and consecutive College Football Playoff championship game. Inevitably, people ask the arguably pedestrian question: what about three consecutive titles?  

Georgia football coach Kirby Smart already knew the question on everybody’s mind the morning after his latest championship victory. “I really don’t want to talk about three,” Smart said. Georgia had just “obliterated TCU 65-7 in the most one-sided postseason college football game in history.” 

As opined in the reported article, “Smart might not want to discuss it, but he couldn’t deny he is already thinking about Georgia’s chance to do something unprecedented in the last eight-plus decades of college football.” As reported, “The Bulldogs have more national championships (two) than losses (one) over the past two seasons, establishing the new gold standard in college football after this 15-0 season.” 

The article informs that Georgia will have the opportunity next year to play for a three-peat, “which has never been done in the AP poll era, which dates to 1936.” 

Coach Smart made the smart modest assertion: “Starting to think about the next one, I do think it’s going to be much tougher.” Smart elaborated: “And I do think we’re going to have to reinvent ourselves next year, because you can’t just stay the same. We have a lot of guys that are going to come back, and it’s easy to get comfortable.” Smart smartly added: “And comfortable does not win.” 

As reported, “In the long history of the AP Top 25, no team has ever been awarded three national championships in a row by poll voters.” The article informs, additionally: “A number of teams – notably Minnesota in the 1930s and Army in the 1940s – claimed threepeats as awarded by other polls.” Thus, Georgia’s opportunity is “squarely on the cusp of history — with a good chance to make it.” Georgia, it was reported, is only the fourth team since 1980 to win two straight national titles and to reach this precipice of history. 

The ”Dawgs’ personnel losses, it was opined, will be “significant.” For example, the “remarkable career of 25-year-old quarterback Stetson Bennett” is over, and standout defensive tackle Jalen Carter declared for the NFL draft immediately after the game.  

The issue of Georgia’s “remarkably comfortable schedule in 2023” was directly addressed in a related article, which had a disparaging tinge for the schedule. For those inclined to think about such matters, criticism abounds. The article Look: Georgia’s Embarrassing 2023 Schedule Is Going Viral mocks Georgia’s schedule and concludes Georgia’s third consecutive championship is probable.  

“If all goes according to plan, Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs should be right back in the College Football Playoff next season. Georgia’s 2023 schedule is about the weakest you’ll ever see.” The article concludes: “Overall, Georgia plays seven homes games, four road games, one neutral-site game and avoids Alabama and LSU on the schedule…… It’ll be embarrassing if the Dawgs don’t return to the Playoff next season. Georgia will finish next year at 12-0. Book it.”
