SEC Power Rankings: Georgia is the new Georgia, not the new -- or old -- Alabama

ATHENS — Georgia is the new Georgia, not the new or old Alabama.

Or did you miss last season?

It was Georgia, not Alabama, that carried the No. 1 ranking throughout most of the year and put together a legendary defense that allowed just 6.9 points per game in the regular season.

If anything, last year’s UGA team was the OLD Alabama, winning with defense and field position football.

But this is the new Georgia -- a program that lost 15 players to the NFL draft, another 13 to the transfer portal, including four former starters.

It cheapens what Coach Kirby Smart and his staff are accomplishing by likening this program to any other, because replacing that many key players and having this level of success is unprecedented.
