Georgia Bulldogs 2012 Title Hopes Still Intact Despite Suspensions

+Read full article

The Georgia Bulldogs might be the favorite to win the SEC east come preseason prediction time, but Mark Richt’s team will have to earn everything it accomplishes early in the 2012 season.

Just weeks after starting cornerback Sanders Commings was suspended for the season’s first two games, a report from Dawgpost.com indicates senior safety Baccari Rambo and star linebacker Alec Ogletree will be suspended at least two games for a violation of team rules. Another Georgia defensive back, Branden Smith, was recently suspended for at least one game following his spring break arrest on a marijuana charge.

The situation on defense was already dire enough for Richt to move one of his top wide receivers, Malcolm Mitchell, to cornerback to help with depth issues at the position.

Now, Georgia must navigate the early portion of the 2012 schedule, which includes a trip to SEC newcomer Missouri, without three of its top defensive players.

Given Missouri’s offensive ability, the Bulldogs could be in real trouble for that September 8 game in Columbia.

While Georgia should be at full strength for the bulk of its schedule, no team wants to get its first conference loss in the first conference game. Luckily, for the ‘Dawgs, the Missouri game is sandwiched between cupcakes Buffalo and Florida Atlantic. Richt and the ‘Dawgs are also fortunate that the SEC east is still somewhat down compared to the conference’s western division.

The Bulldogs may be in trouble early on, but the SEC east could still be Georgia’s for the taking.
