Kentavious Caldwell-Pope averaged near 20 points per game in the 2012-13 college basketball season. The next highest player on the team didn’t even score in double digits. Yeah, the Georgia Bulldogs could very well be doomed in the 2013-14 college basketball season.
Even with Caldwell-Pope, Georgia finished with a 15-17 record overall and a 9-9 SEC record. So, not even he was good enough to lead this team to victory or at least a .500 record.
Who will be the new go-to guy? Will a player breakout next season? The questions go on and on and on for this team. However, there does not seem to be enough talent on paper for Georgia to compete for an SEC title or anything near that for that matter.
Who knows, though, a player could step up or maybe the Bulldogs will become a well-rounded team, which will result in more victories? Luckily, the SEC will be losing some talent, but Florida and Kentucky are still expected to be at the top of the standings. Georgia will have nowhere near the talent level of those two teams and it would be lucky to finish with a 9-9 record in the conference standings once again.
However, surprise teams happen and players have breakout seasons. I am sure that is exactly what the Bulldogs are hoping for in the upcoming season, but this team seems doomed regardless.
As it stands, it would seem like the only thing that this team will be competing for is not finishing in last place in the SEC.
