ATHENS, Ga. -- This spring it will be Georgia's offense carrying expectations while the defense must rebuild. Says Todd Grantham, “I get to yell a lot, so that’ll be fun.”

It usually rests on the upper-classmen to right the ship. Returning upper-classmen:
Garrison Smith DE : Sr
Mike Thornton DT: RsJr
Sterling Bailey DE: RsSop
Ray Drew DE: Jr
Chris Mayes DT: RsSoph
Chase Vasser OLB: RsSr
Dexter Morant OLB: RsJr
Brandon Burrows ILB: Sr
TJ Stripling OLB: Sr
Ramk Wilson ILB/OLB: Jr
Amarlo Herrera ILB: Jr
Connor Norman FS: RsSr
Marc Deas S: RsJr
Devin Bowman CB: RsSoph
Corey Moore SS: Jr
Damian Swann CB: Jr
We're going to have some pleasant suprises from this group (like Shawn Williams and Mike Gilliard in 2011). We're going to have a few step up and find themselves in limited role-playing opportunities (Christian Robinson and Chase Vasser in 2011/2012).
I know that our eyes and attention are to the incoming class. But the Juniors and RsSophs listed are from our Dream Team class that Grantham recruited himself.
Even if the guys aren't as high profile as some of the highschoolers coming on board, I expect us to see some good things from a group that has only seen this defensive scheme in their careers at UGA.
It can be done!
Oh Yes it can! Agree :-)!
add in the Dawson kids and Jenkins, Fluker and Taylor and Johnson if he shows and there are possiblities....for 2013
what i would like to see is more depth on our D. Seemed we did,nt have enough last year and with such a big class comeing in i just hope CTG can coach these guys up and build more depth . Has spring practice started yet ? Let,s keep it going .
I think and hope Sterling Bailey steps up. Kid can play ball!
Our D next year will be better statisticly. It is about attitude. Can't wait!
I think we are going to be "sneaky" good on defense. We are going to suprise some people.
One of my favorite scenes in Mr. Deeds.
My main concern is the secondary after Damian Swann and Sheldon Dawson... We don't have any true SEC caliber players other than those 2 on the roster right now. However we'll have some good ones coming in like Tray Matthews, Branden Langley, and Shaq Fluker. I think Tray and Langley will be bonafied stars... Damian Swann, Sheldon Dawson, and Branden Langley will make the best CB combo in college football in a year or so.
I think we need JHC to play safety this year and put him alongside Tray, to go with the 3 CBs I named and we'll have a very good secondary.
I think Corey Moore could be a surprise at CB or FS.Ray Drew steps in for CW and does a GREAT job next yr, along with JHC whom I believe will be a star at SS.
