The Best will still be good in 2009 (College Football)

This time a year ago, the Bulldogs had visions of grandeur. Quarterback Matthew Stafford topped a list of eight returning offensive starters; nine starters were coming back on defense. The Bulldogs had posted 11 victories and won their bowl game in 2007; they also beat archrival Florida.
But team chemistry doesn’t necessarily return even if starters do. Once the season arrived, the Bulldogs were ravaged by injuries. Georgia still had a solid year and posted 10 wins, but it fell way short of contending for a national championship.

Any team with an experienced quarterback topping the list of a bunch of returning starters coming off a double-digit victory total, a bowl victory and a win over its archrival should have great aspirations for next season. Don’t take anything for granted, though.
