Can UGA go 12-0? The Cover 4 guys give that one a whirl.

Cover 4 on UGA football: Predicting the regular season record

A new day means another rep of a UGA football feature called the Cover 4. DawgNation has four staffers who cover the team from every angle: Beat, hybrid roles, live streams, photos, podcasts, recruiting, etc. The Cover 4 aim here is simple: 1) Present a topic; 2) Offer a reasoned response; 3) Share a brisk statement to support the informed opinion. 

The first game of the season finally kicks today. Finally. Pump a fist or raise a toast to that.

It offers the last chance for our team to weigh in with the question on everyone’s mind: How are the Bulldogs looking this fall? Can they win them all?

Maybe. But our panel isn’t buying it. At least not all of them.


Better strap up. These Cover 4 takes will come at you even faster than Mecole Hardman Jr. can post to his social media accounts.

Chip Towers: 12-0

Why: The Bulldogs have better talent than every team on the schedule and King Kirby is too Smart to lose to a team with less talent.
