Nick Chubb Has High Expectations For 2018 Georgia Bulldogs



Nick Chubb talks decision to return to UGA for senior season, plus high expectations for the 2018 Georgia Bulldogs

Georgia great Nick Chubb, now a member of the NFL’s Cleveland Browns, made the tough decision to return to school for his senior year following the 2016 season. Alongside fellow ball carrier Sony Michel and linebackers Davin Bellamy and Lorenzo Carter, the four announced their decision to give it one las shot in Athens.

Though they fell just short of the ultimate goal – bringing a national title back home to the Classic City, – the group of leaders did benefit personally from returning, as they are all now members of NFL franchises following the draft and free agency.

However, returning to Georgia did more than just help the players individually. It set a tone – a tone for future Bulldog players and teams.

Connor Riley of DawgNation spoke with Chubb last week about what returning to Georgia meant for not only him, but the program in general.

“I thought it helped a lot, but not just for me,” Chubb said. “Just the big picture and showing guys that we can be a championship-caliber team and we’re a team that’ll continue to be good into the future.”

There’s no doubt losing a plethora of stars to the NFL hurts the 2018 Bulldogs, but there’s also no denying the talent Kirby Smart’s team has for the upcoming season. Is all that returning talent enough for Georgia to make another trip to the title game?

Chubb thinks so.

“I think they can win it all, they just have to get the job done. Definitely a lot better,” Chubb told Riley.
