As the Morning Show with John Fricke and Hugh Douglas turned their attention to SEC Media Days, Georgia will be front and center, along with Arkansas, Florida and Ole Miss. 

The Bulldogs lost a lot of strong defensive players to the NFL Draft, naturally leaving the big question heading into this season being, well, the defense. John said this team is in full-on "reload" mode instead of "rebuild" mode. Teams, a la Alabama, that just need to reload, and bring in the next talented player, won't have as  tough of a time getting back to the top.

However, there are landmines along the schedule that may give Georgia fits. How much better will South Carolina be? How much better will Florida be this season? Hugh figures the UGA/South Carolina game will be a great test for the top-ranked Bulldogs.

Should Dawgs fans lower their expectations for the 2018 season?
