Georgia football 2012: Bacarri Rambo still 'a little rusty'

Bacarri Rambo's return from a four-game suspension has not been as smooth as he or his Georgia teammates might have hoped. The All-American safety spoke to the media on Tuesday, and is not discouraged:

"My time's coming. I knew I was going to be a little rusty."

Rambo has now been back for two games since missing the first four weeks for a second violation of the team's drug-testing policy.

One play in particular from last weekend's disappointing loss to South Carolina stands out for Rambo. On just the second play from scrimmage, South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw threw a 42-yard pass to Damiere Byrd. Rambo knows that he should have intercepted that pass instead of allowing the completion. Said Rambo,

"That's what I beat myself up about...I wonder if I'd made that interception if would it have changed the momentum of the game...I had it in my hands. It's still bothering me, but I've just got to move on."
