Georgia glance

LAST SEASON 8-5, 5-3 (3rd) in SEC East

COACH Mark Richt (72-32 in 14th year at Georgia and overall)

RETURNING STARTERS Offense 6, defense 8, special teams 2

KEY RETURNING PLAYERS RB Todd Gurley, WR Chris Conley, WR Malcolm Mitchell, LB Ramik Wilson, PK Marshall Morgan, CB Damian Swann

SEC TITLE SCENARIO If the Bulldogs avoid the injuries that decimated the offense last year and Hutson Mason proves to be a quality quarterback, they could make a deep run. The defense is expected to be significantly stronger under coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.

If injuries and bad luck balance out from year to year, the Georgia Bulldogs should be rolling in clover this season.
