Georgia Bulldogs 2010-2011 Season Preview

2009 Total Offense Rank (yards per game): 118
2009 Total Defense Rank (yards per game): 96

After going .500 in the Southeastern Conference (SEC) in 2009, the Georgia Bulldogs will try to improve on last year’s poor showing by both the offense and defense. The defense gave up more than 30 points four times last season, but hope that a change to a 3-4 defense will solve some of the problems. On offense, the Bulldogs also hope some changes will provide a much needed spark.

Now that quarterback Joe Cox is gone, there is a three man race to take over his spot. Head coach Mark Richt has yet to name a starter, but it looks like it will come down to a choice between junior Logan Gray and redshirt freshman Aaron Murray. The very mobile Murray seems to be the front runner for the position.

Whoever the quarterback is, they will be throwing to one of the best receivers in the SEC in A.J. Green. Green had over 800 yards receiving last year and looks to build on that strong showing. The running back position is also up for grabs. It is likely that the two leading rushers from last year, Washaun Ealey and Caleb King, will split the carries once again.

The defense lost two of its best players in safety Reshad Jones and linebacker Rennie Curran, the team leaders in interceptions and tackles respectively. Some young players who served as backups last year will be forced to step in and play now. Linebackers Cornelius Washington and Justin Houston are both extremely talented and should become the leaders of this young and changing defense.

To help in the rebuilding process, the Bulldogs scored the 8th best recruiting class in the country according to ESPN recruiting. An impressive nine four star recruits should help coach Richt’s team continue to grow and challenge in the SEC.

Georgia’s odds to win the Southeastern Conference (SEC): +650
