So while we're working out, we'll be thinking about all the little things because that could be the difference in the outcome of getting those five yards and getting to the national championship game.

While many of Georgia's offensive weapons will be back next season, the Bulldog defense could end up losing most of its starters. Quarterback Aaron Murray is undecided as to whether he will stay for his senior season, but the running and receiving corps will remain intact. The defense, however, will lose starters Bacarri Rambo, Shawn Williams, Jonathan Jenkins, Cornelius Washington, Mike Gilliard, Sanders Commings, and Alec Ogletree. In addition, Jarvis Jones has not announced whether he plans to enter the draft.
