Georgia Football Preseason: Sporting News Ranks Bulldogs No. 14

Georgia Bulldogs fall camp gets underway this Thursday and as the season approaches a lot of various preseason polls are starting to pop up. The latest is The Sporting News which has Georgia at No. 14:

There's a lot to like about the Bulldogs. They just need to put it together for a whole season-the back-to-back losses that began and ended their 2011 campaign made the 10 wins they racked up insignificant. But that's easier said than done in the SEC.

Priority No. 1 is establishing some consistency at the tailback position. Isaiah Crowell has been dismissed from the team. That leaves another true freshman, five-star recruit Keith Marshall, in charge of ensuring a productive ground game. On defense, Georgia is loaded with linebackers Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree, free safety Bacarri Rambo and cornerback Sanders Commings.

The running game is indeed their main concern for Georgia but with their elite defense that will help out the offense if they struggle to find a consistent ground game early in the season.

Georgia is widely predicted to be ranked in the top-15 or even higher due to their experience coming back as well as their SEC East schedule that is not as daunting as others in the league.
