Quite a turnaround for Georgia Bulldogs running back Ken Malcome. After being upset with his playing time in Week 1, threatening a transfer weeks later, and being suspended in early November, Malcome is now expected to start against the Michigan St. Spartans in the 2012 Outback Bowl.
Malcome ranks No. 6 on the team in rushing yards this year, behind former walk-on Brandon Harton, quarterback Aaron Murray and Richard Samuel, who's been injured since the Florida game. He has only 30 carries -- just 19 more than cornerback Branden Smith -- but has taken a larger role at the end of the year, totaling 21 in Weeks 11 and 12 and five in the SEC Championship Game.
