Who Will the Georgia Bulldogs Lose To First?
That really depends on how the team does without Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Caldwell-Pope averaged 18.5 points per game and 7.1 rebounds per game last season. The Bulldogs only averaged 60.8 points per game (307th in the nation), so they will definitely miss their star player.
Georgia finished with an overall record of 15-17 last year, so you can say that it lost quite a bit of games. With that in mind, the Bulldogs could probably lose against anyone. However, I am going to have a little faith in this team and say that they will win their first three games of the season.
For that to happen, Georgia will have to beat Georgia Tech and Davidson. It could lose both of those games.
The Bulldogs will go 3-0 and then their perfect season will be over. They will then take on the Temple Owls in the Charleston Classic (assuming Temple beats Clemson and Georgia beats Davidson). The Owls will be losing some talent as well, which includes their leading scorer, but you have to remember that Georgia was not a very good team last season.
Sure, it finished with a 9-9 SEC record, but it did have 17 losses on the year. It would be nice if Georgia took a step forward and finished with a winning record. Who knows if that will be the case in the 2013-14 season.
Regardless, Georgia will be handed its first loss of the year when it takes on the Owls–assuming it doesn’t lose before that contest.
