I know speculation at this point is futile, but . . . hey if one can't do it on this board where can one do it? What that said, I can't help but feel like this year's squad has a lot of similarities to that 05 team. Obviously like the 05 team, there's gonna be a lot greats to replace. Also like the 05 squad we've got a 5th year senior QB who has bidded his time to lead the dawgs. Things worked out fairly well for those 05 dawgs. And I can't help but think things aren't gonna be much diffferent for these dawgs. Why? Well this dawgs team is much deeper than that 05 team at most every position (QB, RB, WR especially). That 05 squad was not particularly deep and Shockley's injury against Arky derailed our "potential NC hopes". [Although upon reflection I agree that the BCS probably would have screwed us out of the game to setup the Horns vs. Trojans matchup]. If Joe Cox gets hurt this year, Logan Gray is more than capable of leading us. Heck, Joe Cox is fighting like heck to keep the spot. Moreover, our WR corps should be really good as well (with Marlon Brown being this year's AJ Green). And while our D's performance against BAMA, UF, UK and GT certainly has to be an issue of some concern this offseason, I can't help but think that will be corrected as well. They shut down Michigan State and seemed pretty stout in spring. With all this said, I know that unlike the 05 squad the 09 squad has an absolute monster Florida squad that according to ESPN and other programs is going to embark on a path of utter world domination the likes of which have not been seen since the days of Julius Ceasar. Clearly this has the potential for making things a bit difficult for both UGA and the UN. However, every empire's gotta end some time right? Why not in 09?
