Tennessee Vs. Georgia: Wide receivers develop close bond

The relationships between the Georgia Bulldogs wide receivers is allowing them all to have a hand in the team's success this season.

With eight different Georgia wide receivers catching passes through the first four games of the 2012 season, one would think there would be more competition, or at least some kind of eagerness to one-up the other. That's not the case with this pack of Bulldogs, though.

They have close friendships that extend beyond the football field, which actually helps them when they are on the gridiron. Sophomore Chris Conley said when the Dogs are on the field, that cohesiveness shows in the way they run the plays.

Perhaps that's why Georgia has been able to spread the wealth with its receivers. Out of the eight receivers with catches this season, five of them have scored on touchdown receptions and just 11 yards separate the team's leading receiver from its third-leading wide out.

Redshirt junior Rantavious Wooten had this to say about everyone buying in, via the Athens Banner-Herald's blog Dog Bytes:

"You can tell the guys are having fun, and everybody is into the system. Everybody wants to go to Miami. Everybody knows the goal, and everybody is pushing and working for that common goal. That's a big difference."
