When Jay Rome selected Georgia as his college of choice last year, fans just knew the 2011 season was going to be something special. And while the season did end up being special, it didn't have anything to do with Jay Rome. Rome was forced to accept a redshirt season his first year with the Bulldogs and he wasn't exactly happy about it. "I thought I was going to get to come in and have an opportunity to play this year… Being a competitor, I always would like to be on the field, I’m not going to sit here and tell you that I’m glad I redshirted. I wish I could play. But I think my redshirting is what’s best for the team at this point...it was pretty upsetting to me at first." (Gentry Estes, Dawgs247, 1/12/12) Not to split hairs, but note that Rome said he felt his redshirting was "best for the team", not necessarily best for him. The fact that Rome arrived on campus with Orson Charles, Arthur Lynch (a player who also had to take an ...

Jarvis Jones to return to UGA for 2012 season

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia coach Mark Richt said Friday linebacker Jarvis Jones and all but one of the team's rising seniors are returning for the 2012 season. A group of 15 players, including 13 players who will be seniors in 2012 and quarterbacks Aaron Murray and Hutson Mason, joined Richt at the news conference. As a third-year sophomore in 2011, Murray submitted his name...

Aaron Murray on a scooter? Aaron Murray on a scooter.

Reports out of Athens via Twitter tell of  "a certain QB doing his best jersey shore impression last night.. not frat." Gee, who could they possibly be talking about? And was he trying to be The Situation or Snookie? If it's the fashion-challenged Georgia QB I think it is, there's no telling which one it would be. Until the inevitable (we hope) pictures...

Todd Grantham: "My desire is to be at Georgia"

With one statement, the 'will he' or 'won't he' drama that launched a thousand retweets on Twitter (well, it sure seemed like a thousand) ended. “This time of year there are a lot of rumors involving coaching openings.

Draft-eligible Bulldogs to stay for another SEC East run

Tight end Orson Charles announced on Wednesday that he would be leaving Georgia early for the NFL. Fortunately for the Bulldogs and their hopes of a repeat divisional crown, Charles is the only underclassmen making the early leap. At a press conference Friday, Mark Richt and several draft-eligible underclassmen – safety Bacarri Rambo, cornerbacks Branden Smith and…

“Nobody else ; we will have our whole defense back.”

While I’m sorry to see Orson Charles leaving, it’s pretty exciting to hear that Bacarri Rambo and Shawn Williams are staying put in Athens.  Assuming Smith, Washington and Commings do the same (and Seth Emerson indicates all three are leaning towards doing so), that’s nine starters returning on a defense that finished the season ranked fifth in the nation in total defense...
