Georgia D Gets Safety, Three TOs in Florida Citrus Bowl
News:Analysis: The Georgia defense forced three turnovers Tuesday against Nebraska in the Florida Citrus Bowl en route to a 45-31 victory. The Bulldogs also netted a safety to begin the game. Georgia will lose Jarvis Jones, John Jenkins and possibly Alec Ogletree to the NFL, leaving gaping holes and big questions on the defensive side of the ball heading into next season.
News:Analysis: The Bulldog defense allowed a staggering 350 yards rushing against Alabama on Saturday. Both Eddie Lacy and TJ Yeldon each had over 150 yards rushing against the Bulldogs, who had no answer for the ground game of the Tide. Still, the Bulldogs returned a blocked punt 55 yards for a touchdown and also forced two turnovers in the 32-28 defeat. Georgia will likely lose its top defender in Jarvis Jones to the NFL next season, but should remain a productive unit.

Expect similar numbers next week as the Bulldogs take on the Auburn Tigers.
News:Analysis: The Bulldog defense met the challenge and forced six turnovers against the highly-ranked Gators on Saturday. Georgia also sacked quarterback Jeff Driskel five times and allowed just nine points for the game. Georgia looks to keep the momentum going against Ole Miss next weekend.
Georgia's Defense Clamps Down on Kentucky Passing Attack
News: The Georgia defense allowed 123 passing yards on Saturday against Kentucky. The Wildcats were able to gain 206 yards on the ground.
Analysis: The Bulldogs have allowed at least 24 points in their last three games and have not forced a turnover in the last two weeks. They play Florida next week, so if you have the Bulldog defense, you may want to bench them.
News:Analysis: The Bulldog defense allowed 392 yards and 28 points to South Carolina on Saturday, while failing to force a turnover. After this disappointing output, expect a much better performance in two weeks when Georgia visits Kentucky.

News: Following his arrest for driving under the influence and speeding, Georgia linebacker Cornelius Washington has been suspended two games.
Analysis: Washington is the team's sack leader so his loss will be felt immediately. However, this could open the door for talented freshman Ray Drew.
News: Georgia outside linebacker Cornelius Washington was arrested early Sunday for speeding and driving under the influence. University policy states a suspension of ten percent of the regular season for first time offenders which means Washington could miss one or two games.
Analysis: After a big win against Mississippi State, it is a shame that this happened to the Bulldogs. Washington is a huge playmaker and will be sorely missed if he is indeed suspended.
News: Georgia safety Jakar Hamilton has been riddled with injuries lately and has decided to find a new start at a different school. Head coach Mark Richt opined that it was in the best interest of both parties to just part ways.
Analysis: The only thing really holding back the Bulldogs from being a real SEC contender is their defense so this doesn't help their cause.
News: Georgia has now lost two games and two linebackers as starting middle linebacker Christian Robinson is out for at least three weeks with a broken foot.
Analysis: The weak link for the Bulldogs is their defense and it just keeps getting weaker.
News: Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree broke a bone in his right foot and will be out for at least a month.
Analysis: The way the Broncos moved the ball on the Bulldogs suggests that they cannot afford to be without any of their starters so Ogletree's return can't come soon enough.
News: Georgia safety Jakar Hamilton could possibly miss this season after suffering a stress fracture in his right foot. Heading into summer camp, Hamilton was competing with Shawn Williams for the safety spot opposite Bacarri Rambo.
Analysis: With Alec Ogletree moving down to linebacker, the Bulldogs are getting pretty thin at the safety position. If they are going to turn the corner in Todd Grantham's second year after installing the 3-4, they will need their secondary healthy.
News: Yet another scooter accident has hit the college football landscape. Georgia linebacker Ray Drew sprained his shoulder in a scooter accident on Sunday and is listed as day-to-day.
Analysis: When will we learn to either make campuses smaller or give these guys golf carts.
News: After speculation into a possible eligibility violation, Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones has been cleared by both the NCAA and the SEC.
Analysis: Jones is expected to replace Justin Houston as the Dawgs primary pass-rusher so this news is great for Bulldog Nation.
News: While the status of Jarvis Jones is still up in the air, Georgia has lost inside linebacker Brandon Burrows for the 2011 season after the backup underwent shoulder surgery.
Analysis: Burrows was expected to add quality depth but his absence shouldn't impact the defense on the field.
News: The status of USC transfer and current Georgia Bulldog Jarvis Jones should be determined soon as Georgia is set to turn in their investigation to the NCAA within a week.
Analysis: The Bulldogs will find out if they will have their pass rushing linebacker for their season opener against Boise State in the Georgia Dome.
News: Boise State will be one of nine teams to wear Nike's Pro Combat System of Uniforms for their season opener. In an interesting twist, Georgia, Boise State's season-opening opponent on Sept. 3, will also wear the Pro Combat uniforms.
Analysis: The new uniform styles, which are very non-traditional in style, will be unveiled next month, according to Nike.
News: While the NCAA continues their investigation into the eligibility of Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones, for now he is safe. Jones' eligibility is in question after allegedly receiving benefits from a city-funded AAU basketball team.
Analysis: Losing Jones would be a huge hit for the Bulldogs' defense as he was supposed to step in for Justin Houston and provide a pass rush in the second year of the 3-4 defense.
News: While the whole story can be read at the Ledger-Enquirer, the summation is that former USC and current Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones may have violated his amateur status back in 2009. At that time, Jones had signed with USC but was playing in a city-funded AAU basketball league where he received free flights totaling over $800 in value.
Analysis: In the wake of the bevy of NCAA investigations and the situation that happened to Baylor basketball player Perry Jones, this most certainly will lead to another investigation by the NCAA and could end up in Jones' losing eligibility.
News:Analysis: Georgia's DST look good in the first quarter Saturday against Alabama, but that's about it. The Bulldogs gave up 463 yards and forced only one turnover. If Saturday's poor performance against the run (315 yards) is any indication, next week's matchup against run-heavy Georgia Tech will be an ugly one.
News:Analysis: Georgia allowed seven points against Idaho State Saturday while totaling one sack, three interceptions and two touchdowns. Expect them to allow about seven times that point total against Auburn. Don't test your luck.
News:Analysis: The Bulldogs DST gave up 34 points to an otherwise unimpressive Florida offense in Saturday's loss. The Gators hit Georgia with 21 third quarter points. Georgia gave up over 450 total yards and only forced one turnover. Not to worry, though. Next week's matchup against Idaho State should bring you a bevy of points.
News:Analysis: Georgia's defense picked one Kentucky pass, forced three fumbles, and held Kentucky's ground game to 70 yards. The Bulldog's special teams also returned a kickoff for a touchdown in the first quarter. The Bulldogs' DST has put in back-to-back impressive performances after shutting out Vanderbilt last week.
News:Analysis: The Bulldogs' DST allowed only 140 total yards and forced two turnovers Saturday against Vanderbilt. They stymied the Commodores offense all day long, allowing only five pass completions and no runs over 14 yards. Next week's matchup against a much-improved Kentucky offense will be a much tougher test for Georgia.
News:Analysis: The Bulldogs' defense forced two fumbles and an interception in Saturday's blowout against Tennessee. The 'Dogs obliterated Tennessee's running game, allowing only nine net yards. Next week's matchup against run-heavy Vandy could be a huge game for the Bulldogs' defense.
News:Analysis: Georgia allowed 235 yards and three touchdowns on the ground in a loss to Colorado Saturday. The game was close until Colorado scored touchdowns on back-to-back drives in the third quarter. The Bulldogs are 1-4 and their offense has struggled at times. This does not bode well for a defense that tires as the game goes on. They face two run-heavy teams in the next two weeks. Beware.
News:Analysis: Georgia's defense gave up 380 yards through the air against Arkansas' potent passing offense. They held the Hogs to a paltry 2.3 yards per carry on the ground, though, and their special teams covered kicks nicely. The Bulldogs are an interesting play next week against a Mississippi State team that has struggled to score the last two weeks. The game should be a defensive struggle. Both teams are allowing under 20 points per game this season.
Bulldogs D Defenseless against Lattimore in Loss to Gamecocks
News:Analysis: Lattimore ran wild over the Bulldogs Saturday. Georgia's defense ranks in the top-20 in points allowed. However, the 189 yards they surrendered to South Carolina is troubling. Take a wait-and-see stance with the Bulldogs. Next week they face Arkansas' explosive air attack.
News:Analysis: Georgia registered three sacks and forced three INTs against the inferior Ragin' Cajuns on Saturday. ULL tallied a mere 128 yards of total offense. The Bulldog D will face a much tougher task next week against Steve Spurrier's Gamecocks.
News: Georgia starting safety Alec Ogletree has been suspended for at least one game following a misdemeanor theft charge, ESPN reports.
Analysis: Georgia has an easy matchup this week against Louisiana-Lafayette, so luckily Ogletree won't be missing a key game.
News: Georgia linebacker Akeem Dent will miss 4-to-6 weeks with a toe injury, ESPN reports.
Analysis: Dent has been a role player up to this point in his career, but he was expected to start in 2010. He might miss the first game of the year, and he'll miss all of fall practices, severely damaging any chance that he might have an impact in his senior season.
News: Georgia's defense limited Tennessee Tech to just 55 yards of total offense in their victory over the Eagles on Saturday.
Analysis: Tennessee Tech ended the game with negative-13 rushing yards on 31 attempts. Things will be tougher for the Georgia defense in Week 11 as they will be facing Auburn and not Tennessee Tech.
News: Georgia's defense limited Vanderbilt to just 10 points in their victory over the Commodores on Saturday.
Analysis: The Georgia defense was not spectacular in the game, but they shut out the Vanderbilt offense for the final 25 minutes to secure the victory. Georgia has a bye in Week 8 but will take on Florida when they return to the field on October 31, so fantasy owners should not plan on using them for at least the next two weeks.
