Contrary to what Dan Mullen might think, Georgia looks like next elite program

Last week, Georgia hauled in the nation’s top-rated college football recruiting class, just a month after the SEC champion Dawgs came within one overtime play of winning a national championship.

Naturally, you’re starting to hear the word “elite” applied to Kirby Smart’s program more and more.

Except down in Florida, where new Gators coach Dan Mullen pooh-poohed Smart’s success. Asked how he’ll keep pace with Georgia in the SEC East, Mullen said, “Listen, making it to one SEC Championship Game doesn’t make you a dominant program, you know what I’m saying? I mean, two out of the last three years we’ve still been to the SEC Championship Game. So even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while.”
