Sophomore Ken Malcome will likely be the starting tailback for No. 6 Georgia in the opener against Buffalo. Coach Mark Richt made the announcement after a closed scrimmage Wednesday, though he still left himself room to change his mind between now and the Sept. 1 game. Richt was vague about the pecking order behind Malcome, saying he wants everyone to keep fighting for a spot right up until the Bulldogs take the field. Senior Richard Samuel and freshmen Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley are contending for playing time. Malcome rushed for 174 yards last season in limited duty as a redshirt freshman. He moved up the depth chart when Isaiah Crowell was kicked off the team following his arrest on felony weapons charges.

Mitchell set to play offense, defense for Georgia

Life is good for Malcolm Mitchell as he prepares for a season in which he won't have to choose between offense and defense. Georgia has big plans for the talented sophomore on both sides of the ball.

Georgia Bulldogs: I’d Rather Have Seen a ’12′ Than an ’8′ on that Pop Tart Box

  Okay, so about this whole ‘Pop Tart’ thing…I don’t get it. Honestly, when I first heard about it, I thought, I haven’t had a ‘Pop Tart’ in ages and my mother forbade me from feeding them to her beloved grandchildren because she’s quite certain they “go right along with Spam in the whole ‘stuff your body shouldn’t be digesting’ category”. Her concerns...

College Pop Tarts: A Good Idea Poorly Executed

Unfortunately, good...
