Found September 22, 2012 on College Football Zealots:

After the clos game last year in Nashville and post-game fracas between James Franklin and Todd Grantham, this was a game that was circled on some calendars. In the lead up to the game, the expectation was the Georgia would win but would probably have to labor a bit to do so.

As it turned out, Georgia put forth it's best effort of the season and simply dominated Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt came out jittery as they committed multiple infractions on their first few series. On the other hand, Georgia took their first four drives and scored TDs on all of them. 

Georgia built a 27-0 lead before taking a 27-3 lead into halftime and then built that into 48-3 at the end of the third quarter when Georgia finally pulled it's starters. For Georgia, it was an impressive display of dominance is just about every aspect of the game (except extra points). Aaron Murray was on target as he went 18 of 24 for 250 yards and 2 TDs and he played turnover free football. Once again, Georgia's freshmen RBs Todd Gurley (130 yds, 2 TD) and Keith Marshall (82 yds, 2 TD) played a starring role. The veteran receivers, Marlon Brown (114 yds rec, 1 TD) and Tavarres King (4 rec, 1 TD) had good games. The defense, led by Jarvis Jones (2 sacks) and Amarlo Herrera, kept the Dores out of the end zone.

Mark Richt dances a little sidestep over Ogletree and Rambo suspensions.

Mark Richt - Now you see him, now you don't. He comes and goes. Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree and safety Bacarri Rambo have been suspended since the beginning of the Bulldog's 2012 season for separate off-the-field incidences.

It was 11:09 p.m. when Bacarri Rambo was happiest Saturday night. At that moment, Rambo, dressed in his traditional red No. 18 Georgia jersey and black athletic shorts, gathered some teammates together for a picture near the 50-yard line of Sanford Stadium for a special occasion.

Richt has never clarified how long the suspensions will last. On Sunday...

Georgia Bulldogs: About That Kicking Game…

Though I am still basking in the glow of Georgia’s 48-3 rout of Vanderbilt last night, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention what appears to be a recurring issue in the kicking game—the PAT’s. Last night, true freshman Marshall Morgan missed one extra point due to a bad snap and nearly flubbed another one later in the game—that one was saved by a good bounce off the goal...

Georgia's versatile offense putting up big numbers

With apologies to A.J. Green, Georgia would rather have plenty of options. The Bulldogs will look to keep mixing things up when they face Vanderbilt on Saturday night. Aaron Murray and No. 5 Georgia (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) have been getting nearly everyone in on the offensive act. Tavarres King, Marlon Brown and Michael Bennett have each had 100-yard receiving games...
