2010 Spring Outlook

eorgia heads into the spring with lots of optimism on getting back into the upper echelon of the Southeastern Conference. Despite winning eight or more games for the 13th consecutive year in 2009, the Bulldogs had grown accustomed to better. The ‘Dogs enter the spring with three new defensive coaches representing the largest single year change since head coach Mark Richt took over in 2001. New defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has come in to implement a 3-4 defensive scheme. His resume includes nine years in the college ranks with Michigan State and Virginia Tech and 11 more in the NFL, most recently with the Dallas Cowboys in 2008 and ’09. Other new coaches include secondary coach Scott Lakatos who joins the Bulldogs after six years at UConn and linebackers coach Warren Belin who has spent the last eight seasons at Vanderbilt. Add returning veteran defensive line coach Rodney Garner and the ‘Dogs have a solid defensive unit in place to install the new scheme. On the field, Georgia will return 17 of 24 starters including 10 on offense. A total of 49 lettermen return. The Bulldogs also return what may be the best kicking tandem in college football: Drew Butler, winner of the 2009 Ray Guy Award as the nation’s top punter, and Blair Walsh, one of three finalists for the Lou Groza Award as the nation’s most outstanding placekicker. The biggest uncertainty on offense is the quarterback position. With senior Joe Cox graduating, three candidates will begin the competition for the starting role this spring: junior Logan Gray and redshirt freshmen Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger. On defense, it will all be about the new 3-4 scheme and fitting the current players into the positions that suit them best.

QUARTERBACKS

One junior and two redshirt freshmen will line up in the spring to compete for the QB job. Logan Gray (6-2, 192, Jr.) is the only letterman at the position and his experience taking snaps has been limited although he has also returned punts for the Bulldogs. His passing totals from ’09 include 5x12 passing for 31 yards. Aaron Murray (6-1, 206, RFr.) and Zach Mettenberger (6-5, 230, RFr.) Logan Gray both were highly regarded and entered Georgia early in January, ’09. Although they had the advantage of last spring practice as well as the fall, neither has ever taken a snap in a college game.

RUNNING BACKS

With the return of the top two tailbacks from 2009, Washaun Ealey (5-11, 205, So.) and Caleb King (5-11, 210, Jr.), the ‘Dogs had the luxury of moving Richard Samuel (6-2, 222, Jr.) to linebacker, a position at which he excelled in high school. Ealey led Georgia in rushing in 2009 with 125 carries for 717 yards and three TD’s. He was followed closely by King who carried 114 times for 594 yards and seven TD’s. Also back providing depth will be Carlton Thomas (5-7, 180, RSo.) who carried 22 times for 92 yards in ’09 and Dontavius Jackson (5-10, 205, RSo.) who played in three games recording three carries for 38 yards. The fullback spot will also be a strength with the return of seniors Shaun Chapas (6-2, 245, Sr.) and Fred Munzenmaier (6-2, 240, Sr.). Chapas carried seven times for 45 yards and one TD in ’09 along with nine catches for 50 yards and one TD. Munzenmaier added 10 carries for 36 yards and 2 TD’s. Both are exceptional blockers. Charles White (6-1, 224, Jr.) has also Washaun Ealey recently moved from linebacker to fullback.

2010 Spring Outlook

WIDE RECEIVERS

OFFENSIVE LINE

One of the nation’s premier receivers returns in A.J. Green (6-4, 207, Jr.) who led the team in ’09 with 53 receptions for 808 yards and six TD’s. He was a consensus All-SEC first team selection for the second year in a row and has established himself as a Biletnikoff Award candidate for 2010 with a knack for making big catches at critical times in important games. He’ll have help from returning starter Tavarres King (6-1, 180, RSo.) who posted 18 catches for 377 yards (an average of 20.9 yards per catch) and one TD. Four other returning lettermen will also figure into the receiving rotation: Israel Troupe (6-1, 215, Jr.), Rantavious A. J. Green Wooten 5-10, 170, So.), Marlon Brown (6-5, 200, So.), and Kris Durham (6-5, 209, Sr.), who returns after missing ’09 with an injury.

With all five starters and eight lettermen returning, the offensive line should be a strength of the team. OT Clint Boling (6-5, 304, Sr.), All-SEC first team in ’09; OT Justin Anderson (6-5, 330, Jr.); OG Chris Davis (6-4, 295, Sr.); OG Cordy Glenn (6-5, 328, Jr.); and C Ben Jones (6-3, 300, Jr.) represent the entire starting unit along with OT Josh Davis (6-6, 300, Sr.), who earned a starting spot the last part of the season. OG Tanner Strickland (6-5, 328, Jr.), who is coming off a redshirt year due to injury, will be returning for the fall along with OT Trinton Sturdivant (65, 306, Jr.). Sturdivant started as a true freshman in ’07 but has

TIGHT ENDS

missed the last two seasons with knee injuries. The offensive line will also have competing in the spring A.J. Harmon (6-5, 310, RSo.), Chris Burnette (6-2, 290, RFr.), Ben Harden (6-3, 300, Jr.), Jonathan Owens (6-4, 294, RSo.), Dallas Lee (6-4, 296, RFr.) and true freshman Kolton Houston (6-5, 270, Fr.), who enrolled in January, 2010. Austin Long (6-5, 295, RFr.), who missed all last year with an injury, will not be ready for spring but is expected to be ready for the fall.

Four returning lettermen should make this a strong point of the Bulldog attack. Aron White (6-4, 236, Jr.) had 12 starting assignments in ’09, recorded 13 catches for 198 yards and four TD, and was named the Most Outstanding Offensive Player in the 2009 Advocare V100 Independence Bowl after his two TD performance. Other lettermen returning include Orson Charles (6-3, 230, So.), the team’s third leading receiver in ’09 with 23 receptions for 374 yards and three TD’s; Arthur Lynch (6-5, 250, So.), who played in 11 games in ’09; and Bruce Figgins (6-4, 260, Jr.), who last out last year with an injury but played in 24 games in ’07 and ’08.

DEFENSIVE LINE/LINEBACKERS

With the new 3-4 defensive scheme being implemented, the spring will be spent determining which players fit best in which positions. So early on here is a rundown of the players who will be competing for positions at linebacker and/or defensive line: Fairly certain to be playing at the linebacker positions will be returning starter Darryl Gamble (6-2, 250, Sr.) and co-starters Marcus Dowtin (6-2, 220, Jr.) and Akeem Dent (6-2, 233, Sr.). Gamble started 11 games in ‘09 and recorded 47 total tackles. Dowtin started only four games but was the team’s third leading tackler with 57 total tackles, seven tackles-for-loss, two sacks, and six pass break-ups. Dent also started four games and recorded 32 tackles. Other likely linebackers include returning lettermen Nick Williams (6-2, 219, Jr.), Christian Robinson (6-2, 216, RSo.), and Michael Gilliard (6-2, 200, So.). Added to the mix will be converted tailback Richard Samuel (6-2, 222, Jr.), who was an outstanding high school linebacker, Akeem Hebron (6-1, 223, Sr.), and Chase Vasser (6-3, 215, RFr.). Returning lettermen that are likely to compete for time at the three downlineman positions include DeAngelo Tyson (6-2, 294,


2010 Spring Outlook

Jr.), Abry Jones (6-3, 290, So.), and Brandon Wood (6-1, 286, Sr.). Those three played in a total of 35 games in ’09 so they all have game experience. Also in the mix will be redshirt redshirt freshmen Kwame Geathers (6-6, 326, RFr.) and Derrick Lott (64, 295, RFr.). Several returning players, including two starters, will be competing for jobs but may or may not be at the position they covered last season. Justin Houston (6-3, 259, Jr.), a second team All-SEC selection, and Demarcus Dobbs (6-2, 274, Sr.) were Georgia’s starting defensive ends in ’09. Houston led the team with 7.5 sacks and 15 Arby Jones tackles-for-loss in addition to 39 tackles. Dobbs started all 13 games and recorded 30 tackles, 5.5 tackles-forloss, and 4.5 sacks. Other returning defensive end lettermen that will be in the mix for time at one of these new positions will be Cornelius Washington (6-4, 248, RSo.), Montez Robinson (6-5, 250, So.), and Kiante Tripp (6-6, 275, Sr.). Washington recorded five tackles-for-loss and four sack playing DE in ’09. Robinson played in 11 games in ’09 and recorded two tacklesfor-loss and two sacks. Tripp has played both DE and DT during his career on defense. Also competing for one of these spots will be Jeremy Longo (6-3, 255, RSo.).

Commings (6-2, 214, RSo.), Vance Cuff (5-11, 177, Sr.), Branden Smith (5-11, 175, So.), Shawn Williams (6-1, 195, So.), and Chad Gloer (5-10, 193, Sr.). Also expected in the cornerback mix will be Jordan Love (6-0, 185, RFr.). Returning lettermen at safeties include Quintin Banks (6-2, 213, Sr.) and Bacarri Rambo (6-0, 210, RSo.). Banks has been hampered by injuries most of his career but when healthy can make significant contributions. Rambo played in 11 games last season recording 25 tackles and two interceptions. Signee Jakar Hamilton (6-2, 196, Jr.) enrolled in January from junior college and will figure prominently in the safety mix. Also competing at one of the safety spots will be Makiri Pugh (6-0, 196, RSo.).

SPECIALISTS

Georgia may have the country’s top kicking tandem in punter Drew Butler (6-2, 203, Jr.) and placekicker Blair Walsh (51, 185, Jr.). As a sophomore, Butler won the Ray Guy Award in 2009 as the country’s top punter averaging 48. 1 yards per kick. Walsh was a finalist for the Lou Groza Award as the nation’s top placekicker. He was good on 42x42 PAT’s and 20x22 field goal attempts including 4x5 over 50 yards. Brandon Bogotay (6-3, 200, Jr.) also returns as a placekicker. Butler is also the holder.

SECONDARY

Despite losing three starters, the secondary does have eight returning lettermen to compete in the spring. The lone returning starter is cornerback Brandon Boykin 5-10, 185, Jr.) who was the team’s fourth leading tackler with 54 tackles. He also intercepted three passes and was the team’s top kickoff return man averaging 26 yards per return and scoring an SEC record three kickoff return TD’s. He’ll be joined by Brandon Boykin cornerbacks Sanders

Non-Conference Success

Under the direction of Mark Richt, Georgia owns a 38-4 record against teams from outside the Southeastern Conference. The only losses came in bowl games to Boston College (20-16, 2001 Music City) and West Virginia (38-35, 2006 Nokia Sugar) and during the regular season to Georgia Tech (45-42, 2008) and Oklahoma State (24-10, 2009). In 2009, the Bulldogs beat Arizona State (2017), Tennessee Tech (38-0), #7 Georgia Tech (3024) and Texas A&M (44-20 in the Independence Bowl) and lost to the #9 Cowboys (24-10) to finish with a 4-1 non-conference record.

Bulldog Spring Storylines: Six Things To Watch

*The Search For A Signal Caller: For the second year in a row, Georgia will have a new quarterback directing the offense. The candidates for the starting spot include redshirt freshmen Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger and junior Logan Gray after 2009 starter Joe Cox graduated. *Switching To A 3-4: Todd Grantham joins the Bulldog coaching staff as Georgia’s new defensive coordinator and will be installing a 3-4 defense. Grantham comes to the Bulldogs from the Dallas Cowboys and will be joined by secondary coach Scott Lakatos and linebackers coach Warren Belin. The Bulldogs lost their three premier defensive tackles in Jeff Owens, Geno Atkins and Kade Weston to graduation. *Defensive Stars? Along with installing a new 3-4 defense, Georgia lost its top two returning tacklers after linebacker Rennie Curran and safety Reshad Jones left early for the NFL Draft. *Questions Linger At Receiver: Junior A.J. Green will headline the Bulldog receivers after leading the team with 53 catches for 808 yards and six TDs. Tavarres King (18, 377, 1) and Rantavious Wooten (10, 197, 2) are the top returning receivers. Georgia will welcome back Kris Durham to the lineup after he missed the 2009 season with a shoulder injury. One of Georgia’s strengths will be at tight end as Aron White, Orson Charles and Arthur Lynch will be joined by Bruce Figgins, who will be returning after redshirting with an injury last season. *Specializing In Specialists: Georgia features three of the top specialists in the nation. 2009 Ray Guy winner Drew Butler, 2009 Lou Groza Award finalist Blair Walsh and kickoff return standout Brandon Boykin all return for the Bulldogs. Boykin set the SEC record with two 100-yard kickoff returns for touchdowns in the same season and a school-record 988 return yards. *Who Will Emerge This Spring? Justin Houston is one of the top returning defensive ends in the SEC after emerging as a dominant pass rusher during the 2009 season. Houston finished third in the league in sacks with 7.5 and second in the league with TFLs with 15 in just 10 games last season.

Winning With Richt

Mark Richt is one of only seven head coaches who has won 90 or more NCAA Division I football games in his first nine seasons. His victories in that span include two SEC Championships and 29 wins over ranked teams. Georgia has attended a bowl game every season since Mark Richt took over as head coach and the team’s current streak of post-season appearances stands at 13.

The QB Race This year’s spring practice will feature an intense battle for the starting

quarterback job between three candidates. Redshirt freshmen Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger will join junior Logan Gray as the candidates to become the starting signal caller. Murray, a former Parade/U.S Army/SuperPrep All-American at Plant HS in Tampa, Fla., led Plant to the 2008 Florida Class 4-A state title and was named MVP at the EA Sports Elite 11 camp. Murray (6-1, 206) has been enrolled at UGA since January 2009 before redshirting last season. Mettenberger (6-5, 230), a product of nearby Watkinsville, Ga., competed alongside Murray at the Elite 11 camp and also enrolled early in January 2009. Gray is the only one of the three candidates who has appeared in a game at quarterback for the Bulldogs. He saw action during the 2009 season and went 5-of-12 for 31 yards with two INTs. Gray has seen his most action as a punt returner. In two seasons, he has two punt returns for 70 yards. Gray has also scrambled 56 yards on 11 carries from his quarterback position during those two years.

Offensive Front Becomes A Force In 2009

The Bulldog offensive line led the SEC with the fewest sacks allowed. The unit allowed only 12 sacks in 13 games for a loss of 96 yards in 2009. During the season they started six different alignments. Georgia rolled up 339 yards on the ground to help knock off #7 Georgia Tech and gained 1,216 yards on the ground over the final five games. Josh Davis began starting at RT for the Bulldogs against Vanderbilt after returning from an injury. Clint Boling, who had started the first six games at RT as a junior last year, got the nod at LT the last six games while playing at RG for one game during the middle of the year. He was named to the 2009 AP All-SEC second team. Georgia started Trinton Sturdivant (LT), Chris Davis (LG), Ben Jones (C), Cordy Glenn (RG) and Boling (RT) in their season opener. Sturdivant, who was a Freshman All-American after starting 13 games in 2007 and then missed the 2008 season due to a left knee injury, re-injured his knee at #9 OSU and was lost for the rest of the season.

Plenty Of Options At TE

The Bulldogs feature one of the deepest and most versatile groups of tight ends in the country. Aron White started 12 games as a redshirt sophomore last season and was named the Offensive MVP of the Independence Bowl after hauling in two touchdown passes. He finished with 13 catches for 198 yards and four TDs on the year. Orson Charles earned Freshman AllAmerica honors after appearing in all 13 games, including three starts. He ranked third on the team with 23 catches for 374 yards and three scores. In his freshman season, Arthur Lynch saw action in 11 games and had two catches for 17 yards in 2009. The Bulldogs also welcome back Bruce Figgins who redshirted in 2009 with a shoulder injury. In his Bulldog career, Figgins has appeared in 24 games, including three starts, with five catches for 56 yards and one touchdown.

2010 Spring Media Guide

Green Gearing For 1,000 Yards

A.J. Green finished second in the SEC receiving yards/game (80.8) and rec./game (5.3) and was named to the AP All-SEC first team as a sophomore in 2009. But after catching three balls for 19 yards versus #25 Auburn, Green was forced to leave the game with an injured left shoulder AC (Acromioclavicular) sprain at the beginning of the second quarter and did not play versus Kentucky and #7 Georgia Tech. Green returned to lead the Bulldogs in the bowl win over Texas A&M after snagging six catches for 57 yards. He also missed the game with Tennessee Tech due to a bruised lung that happened against top-ranked Florida on Oct. 31. Green’s top performance in 2009 came against Arizona State when he snagged eight catches for 153 yards and a touchdown. It was his fourth career 100-yard game, and he was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week. He also blocked his first career field goal late in the fourth quarter against the Sun Devils to help secure the win. In 2008, Green led the SEC in receiving yardage, yards per game and tied for first in TDs by receivers. He became the first Bulldog to lead the SEC in receiving since Brice Hunter (59 rec.,799 yds.,7 TDs) in 1994.

Bulldog Tailbacks Strong Down The Stretch

The Bulldogs had four different leading rushers in 2009, but finished the year by employing a combination of Caleb King and Washaun Ealey. The Bulldogs tallied 1,216 yards rushing in their last five games, including 339 in the road win over #7 Georgia Tech. The 339 rushing yards was the most in a game since 1988 when the Bulldogs rumbled for 372 yards on 53 carries in a 59-24 win over William & Mary. Also, the Bulldogs had two 100-yard rushers for the first time since 2004 against the Yellow Jackets. Ealey tallied a career-high 183 yards on 20 carries (9.1/carry) while King registered a career-best 166 yards on 19 carries (9.2/carry) and two touchdowns. Ealey was named the SEC Freshman of the Week for the second time this season after the Georgia Tech game. Ealey had a career-high 98 yards rushing on 18 carries and one touchdown versus Auburn and was also named SEC Freshman of the Week. King started the final five games of 2009. Richard Samuel began the 2009 season at tailback and started six games and finished with 395 yards rushing. However, Samuel will be switching to linebacker in the spring for his junior year.

Paving The Way For The Tailbacks

Seniors Shaun Chapas and Fred Munzenmaier return for their final season at fullback for the Bulldogs. This duo has the ability to run-block, but has also shown the ability to move the chains. Chapas gained 45 yards on seven carries and had one score plus nine catches for 50 yards and one score. Munzenmaier had 10 carries for 36 yards and two TDs and also caught three passes for 21 yards.


DEFENSE

Houston

Dog Tracks

Is SEC’s Top Returning Sack-Master

Despite playing in only 10 games as a sophomore, Justin Houston finished second in the SEC with a team-leading 7.5 sacks and 15 tackles for loss. For his efforts, he was named to the AP All-SEC second team. The Bulldogs registered 30 sacks in 2009 compared to just 12 by their opponents. After missing the first two games of the year, Houston made his debut with a career-high seven tackles against Arkansas. He also had a fine performance in the win over #7 Georgia Tech with six tackles and two tackles for loss. DE Demarcus Dobbs started all 13 games of 2009 at the other defensive end spot and finished with 30 tackles and 4.5 sacks as a junior. Another Bulldog to keep an eye on is redshirt sophomore Cornelius Washington after he gained experience in 2009. He finished with 13 tackles, four sacks and 15 quarterback pressures.

No Dowtin The Bulldog Linebackers

In Georgia’s new 3-4 scheme, the linebackers will play an important role in slowing the opposition’s offensive attack. The Bulldogs’ top returning tackler is junior linebacker Marcus Dowtin. Dowtin registered 57 tackles last season, including seven TFLs and two sacks. He appeared in 11 games with four starts. One of those starts came against Texas A&M in the Independence Bowl as Dowtin recorded a career-high nine tackles to lead the Bulldog defense. Georgia’s returning linebackers also include senior Darryl Gamble, who had 47 tackles, and senior Akeem Dent, who finished with 32. Richard Samuel will be getting his first try at linebacker after lining up for his first two seasons at tailback. Samuel had 395 yards and two touchdowns on 88 carries and played in 11 games with six starts. He was the Bulldogs’ leading rusher for the first three games of 2009. The linebackers will have a couple new coaches in Todd Grantham, who is also the defensive coordinator, and Warren Belin.

New Faces Abound In Secondary

Brandon Boykin returns for his junior season to lead the Bulldogs’ youthful secondary in 2010. Boykin was fourth on the team in 2009 with 54 tackles and three interceptions while starting 12 of 13 games. Boykin is the lone returning member of the secondary as Prince Miller and Bryan Evans graduated and Reshad Jones entered the NFL Draft early. Redshirt sophomore safety Bacarri Rambo played in 11 games for the Bulldogs last season and finished with 25 stops and two INTs. Also getting snaps at defensive back in 2009 were Branden Smith and Vance Cuff. Smith started one game and played in all 13 and in addition to his 14 tackles, he had 17 carries for 211 yards and two scores on offense. Cuff had 21 tackles in 2009 after starting one game and playing in nine. In addition, redshirt sophomore Sanders Commings will be attempting to earn more playing time after playing in all 13 games last year and finishing with 12 tackles and one interception. Mid-year enrollee Jakar Hamilton joined the Bulldogs in January and is expected to make an immediate impact. Hamilton had 50 tackles, four picks and eight pass break-ups for Georgia Military College in 2009.

Bulldog Defense Welcomes Three New Coaches

Mark Richt retooled his defensive staff following the 2009 season. Georgia’s defensive staff in 2010 will be led by defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, assistant head coach/defensive line/recruiting coordinator Rodney Garner (12th year at UGA), defensive backs coach Scott Lakatos and linebackers coach Warren Belin. Grantham comes to Georgia from the Dallas Cowboys where he was the defensive line coach from 2008 to 2009. Before arriving in Athens, Grantham had spent 11 seasons in the NFL but also has had assistant coaching experience at Virginia Tech and Michigan State. Lakatos comes the Bulldogs from Connecticut where he was the secondary coach since 2004. Lakatos helped the Huskies have a national ranking of No. 9 in pass efficiency defense in 2008. Belin arrives in Athens after spending the last eight seasons coaching linebackers at Vanderbilt. The 20-year coaching veteran also spent the last two seasons as the Commodores recruiting coordinator.

Who Will Be The Man In The Middle?

Georgia’s switch to a 3-4 defense puts the spotlight on who will fill the role at noseguard. The Bulldogs lost their top three defensive linemen in Jeff Owens, Geno Atkins and Kade Weston. Junior DeAngelo Tyson played in all 13 games last season and finished with 12 tackles. A younger lineman looking to make an impression is sophomore Abry Jones, who played in 12 games and had eight tackles and two tackles for loss.

Time For Turnovers

In 2009, Georgia finished 118th out of 120 teams in the Bowl Subdivision with a turnover ratio of -1.23 . The Bulldog defensive collected 10 interceptions, but the offense threw 17. Reshad Jones had four of the 10 interceptions, but the Bulldogs have Brandon Boykin (3), Bacarri Rambo (2) and Sanders Commings (1) all back. Georgia caused nine fumbles but recovered just two, which was the fewest in the country.

Fourth Quarter Defense

In the fourth quarter, Georgia surrendered 84 points and scored 83 points for a -1 margin. In comparison, national champion Alabama was +89 in the fourth quarter. The Tide allowed just 32 points and scored 121 in the final period. SEC Eastern Division champion Florida was +52 after surrendering 47 points and scoring 99 points.

Georgia Returns Nation’s Best Kicking Tandem

Georgia junior punter Drew Butler and junior place-kicker Blair Walsh rank among the nation’s best at their respective positions. In 2009, Butler was a consensus All-American. He was also the Ray Guy Award winner, which is given to the nation’s top punter, while Walsh was one of three finalists for the Lou Groza Award, which is given to the nation’s top place-kicker. Georgia had never won either award before 2009. Butler became only the third Bulldog in school history to lead the NCAA in punting, joining Zeke Bratkowski (1953, 42.6) and Bobby Walden (1958, 45.3). Butler averaged 48.1 on 56 punts. Butler and the Bulldogs also led the NCAA in Net Punting with an average of 42.0. This was the first time since 1969 that Georgia led the country in Net Punting. Walsh ranked among the best in school history in Field Goal Percentage for a single season. He drilled 20-of-22 FGs (90.9 percent) in 2009, including 4-of-5 from 50 or more yards. Billy Bennett holds the school record after hitting 13-of-14 (92.86 percent) in 2000. Walsh has also connected on all 92 of his PATs during his career and was 42-for-42 in 2009.

A Closer Look At Butler

In his first season as a starter, redshirt sophomore Drew Butler led the NCAA with an average of 48.1 yards on 56 punts. Butler’s big games included a strong showing versus #1 Florida. He averaged 52.5 yards on four punts, including a 61 yarder. His 57.0 average against #9 Oklahoma State was the second-best average for a game since 1958 (Bobby Walden, 63.0). Butler’s 75 yarder was the longest since Brian Mimbs booted a 77 yarder in 2008 versus USC. Versus the Razorbacks, Butler booted a 64 yarder to pin Arkansas on its own 9 yard line late in the fourth quarter to help clinch the game for the Bulldogs. Strangely enough, neither the Bulldogs or Georgia Tech punted during their regular season finale in Atlanta. It marked the first time since the 1986 Duke game that the Bulldogs did not punt. Butler also serves as the holder for Blair Walsh. Butler is the son of former NFL standout and Bulldog All-American Kevin Butler. Butler is on Georgia’s post-game radio show. Mitch Frix snapped the ball to Butler during the 1981-82 seasons and now Frix’s son, Ty, snaps to Drew (see related note). Year Punts 2008 3 2009 56 TOTAL 59

A Closer Look At Walsh

Bulldog Blair Walsh ended up with the No. 2 spot in school history for field goal accuracy in a single season. He hit 20-of-22 (90.9%). The record is 13-of-14 (92.86%) by Billy Bennett in 2000. Walsh’s consistency made him one of three finalists for the Lou Groza Award. Walsh connected on a 37-yard FG to beat Arizona State as time expired in 2009. This was the first game-winning FG for the Bulldogs since Coutu drilled one from the same distance to beat Vanderbilt in 2007 (also a 20-17 win). Walsh also hit a career-long 53-yard field goal at #9 Oklahoma State in 2009 and then connected on a 52 yarder versus Tennessee. His kick against the Cowboys was the longest FG for the Bulldogs since Brandon Coutu connected on a 55 yarder against UAB in 2006. Walsh’s FG was the longest on the road since Hap Hines hit a 54 yarder vs. Kentucky in 1996. Walsh Career Highlights • Hit a 37-yard game winner versus Arizona State in 2009 • Is 4-for-5 on 50-yard+ FGs in 2009 and 6-for-10 from that distance in his career

Frix Following In Footsteps

Ty Frix serves as Georgia’s starting snapper. Frix, a Biomedical Engineering major, was valedictorian at Calhoun HS. In 2009, Georgia was looking for a new snapper after two-year starter Bo Fowler completed his career. Frix’s father, Dr. Mitch Frix, was the starting snapper for Georgia in 1981 and ‘82 and was member of three SEC championship teams, one national title team and three Sugar Bowl teams.

Boykin Owns KOR Record

Defensive back Brandon Boykin set the school record for kickoff return yardage in a single season with 988 kickoff return yards on 38 returns in 2009. He also had the most kickoff returns in a season, breaking the old mark of 28 shared by Gene Washington (1974) and Asher Allen (2007). Vanderbilt’s Warren Norman holds the SEC record for return yardage after registering 1,050 return yards on 40 returns in 2009. Boykin is the first player in SEC history with two 100-yard kickoff returns for touchdowns in the same season after picking up his second one during the matchup at Tennessee. Boykin, Norman and Tennessee’s Willie Gault (1980) share the SEC record for KOR TDs in a season with three. Boykin owns the school record with three kickoff returns for touchdowns in a season. Boykin and Jimmy Campagna are the only Bulldogs in school history with three return touchdowns in a season. Campagna had two punts and one KOR in 1952. Boykin’s first 100-yard kickoff return of the year came against South Carolina. This was the longest scoring play for Georgia in Sanford Stadium history. Boykin, who also had an INT in the game, finished with the secondmost kickoff return yards in a single game (187), missing the school record by just three yards (Scott Woerner, 1977, Kentucky).

2009 Game Summaries

#9 OKLAHOMA STATE

Sept. 5, 2009 • Boone Pickens Stadium – Stillwater, Okla. The 13th ranked Bulldogs dropped their season opener to 9th ranked Oklahoma State 24-10 in front of a record crowd of 53,012 at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, Okla., and a nationally televised audience on ABC to start off the year 0-1 for the first time under Mark Richt. Quarterback Joe Cox began his second career start in fine fashion as he led the Bulldogs on a 10-play 80-yard touchdown drive to open the game. Cox found Michael Moore in the right corner of the end zone from four yards out to put Georgia up 7-0, and that was the last time Georgia would see pay dirt. Cox finished the day 15 for 30 for 162 yards with one touchdown and one interception. A.J. Green led the team in receiving with 4 catches for 52 yards while Richard Samuel took care of Georgia’s rushing attack with 87 yards on 20 carries. Oklahoma State scored 10 points in the final minutes of the first half. A 46-yard pass from Zac Robinson to Dez Bryant tied the game and the Cowboys took the lead on a field goal after Georgia turned the ball over at their own 5-yard line. The Georgia defense held OSU to -5 yards on the first three plays forcing the field goal. The Bulldogs defense, led by linebackers Rennie Curran and Marcus Dowtin, held the Oklahoma State passing attack to just 135 yards on the day but it wasn’t enough as OSU’s Robinson took the Cowboys down the field on the opening drive of the second half to go up 17-7 on a Robinson quarterback sneak. Georgia sophomore kicker Blair Walsh cut the Cowboys led to 1710 on a career-long 53-yard field goal midway through the third quarter. However, OSU’s Robinson connected with Dez Bryant on a 12-yard pass in the 4th quarter to seal the game for the Cowboys. The loss was the first season-opening loss for head coach Mark Richt, and was Georgia’s first opening day loss since they fell to Southern Mississippi 11-7 in 1996.

Georgia 7 Oklahoma State 0

“I felt like our boys played hard. I don’t know if we did everything

exactly right or the way it should be done, but the effort was there. I am also proud of our Bulldog fans. I thought they did a good job of hanging in

there until the very end. Even at the end they stuck around cheering; that’s the sign of a great fan base.”

2009 Game Summaries

SOUTH CAROLINA

Sept. 12, 2009 • Sanford Stadium – Athens, Ga. he Georgia Bulldogs outlasted the South Carolina Gamecocks T 41-37 Saturday night under the lights in Athens, in front of a raucous home crowd of 92,746 fans at Sanford Stadium. The game ended on an incomplete tipped pass from South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia on the Bulldogs four yard line. Sophomore linebacker Rennie Curran was responsible for the deflection and let the play cap his personal best, as he finished with fifteen tackles in addition to his late game heroics. The game got off to a fast and furious start in the first quarter, as South Carolina and Georgia matched touchdowns with the Gamecocks engineering a scoring drive off of an A.J. Green fumble for Georgia, and sophomore defensive back Brandon Boykin’s own answer. Boykin took a kickoff back 100 yards for a score and new Sanford Stadium longest play record, and would complement his efforts with a second quarter interception of Garcia. The Bulldogs didn’t just look to Boykin for big plays, however, as freshman defensive back Branden Smith made the most of an appearance on the offensive side of the ball with a 61 yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Georgia would also get offensive help from some more familiar names in the second quarter, as running back Richard Samuel found his way into the endzone, along with A.J. Green on a nine yard reception from quarterback Joe Cox. Cox would have two touchdown passes on the night, with senior Michael Moore serving as the recipient of another in the third quarter. Cox’s third touchdown pass of the evening went the wrong direction, as Gamecock linebacker Eric Norwood intercepted a pass in the fourth quarter and returned it for a touchdown. However, the extra point was blocked by Georgia defensive tackle DeAngelo Tyson, proving to be an important play as South Carolina was then forced to execute an unsuccessful touchdown drive to end the game. Cox finished 17 of 24 for 201 yards and two touchdowns to go along with one interception. Smith’s 61 yard run was enough to propel him to the top of Georgia’s rushing leaderboard for the night, equaling Richard Samuel with 65 yards and one touchdown. A.J. Green hauled in six passes for 86 yards and a touchdown. Rennie Curran led all tacklers with fifteen stops, and safety Reshad Jones and linebacker Darryl Gamble each contributed with nine. Sophomore kicker Blair Walsh added to Georgia’s scoring total with two field goals of 50 and 42 yards, and connected on five successful extra point attempts.

ARKANSAS

Sept. 19, 2009 • Razorback Stadium – Fayetteville, Ark. The Georgia football team outmatched the hosting Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday, September 19th, by a score of 52 to 41 in front of a sell-out crowd of 74,210 at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Georgia’s scoring total was their highest output on the season, and propelled them to a 2-1 record. The Bulldogs were led by a career best day from quarterback Joe Cox, who threw a school record tying five touchdown passes to go along with 375 yards through the air. Like the script from the previous game versus South Carolina, Georgia found itself in an early 21-10 hole after two turnovers gave the Razorbacks two touchdowns. However, running back Richard Samuel, himself guilty of a first quarter transgression, atoned for his fumble by rocketing his way to an 80-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter. A 25-yard touchdown strike to A.J. Green with just under two minutes remaining in the first half would give the Bulldogs a lead they would relinquish two more times in a true seesaw battle on their way to victory. Cox was not the only Bulldog to have a career night, as freshmen Orson Charles and Tavarres King each caught their first touchdowns on 44 and 50 yard strikes, respectively. A.J. Green also has two scores and tight end Aron White had one to help add to the Bulldogs’ high offensive total. Running back Caleb King saw his first action on the season in a return from a hamstring injury and added 59 yards on the ground to go with Samuel’s 104 and touchdown. Linebacker Rennie Curran paved the way for the Georgia defense with 11 tackles, while defensive end Justin Houston added seven in his first action on the season.

ARIZONA STATE

Sept. 26, 2009 • Sanford Stadium – Athens, Ga. The Georgia Bulldogs defeated the Arizona State Sun Devils 20-17 in front of a rain-soaked Sanford Stadium crowd of 92,746 on a last second field goal by kicker Blair Walsh. The win raised Georgia’s record to 3-1 (2-0 SEC) and provided some much needed relief for fans who had stayed to watch the game despite torrential pre-game conditions. Offensively, Georgia was led by wide receiver A.J. Green, who hauled in eleven receptions for 153 yards and one touchdown. Besides his impressive numbers in the box score, Green wowed Georgia fans with several spectacular catches, but perhaps his most impressive play came in the form of a game saving block of an Arizona State field goal attempt that would’ve given the Sun Devils the lead with 4:31 remaining in the game. The Bulldogs jumped out to an early 14-3 lead with scores on a career long 56 yard touchdown reception by Green from quarterback Joe Cox and a two yard touchdown run from fullback Fred Munzenmaier. The Sun Devils took the lead 17-14 with 5:25 remaining in the third quarter after a Dimitri Nance touchdown run and a 47 yard interception return by safety Jarrell Holman, the first of his two interceptions of Joe Cox on the evening. Georgia evened the score with 14:53 left in the 4th after a 21 yard Blair Walsh field goal, and would maintain that tie until Walsh’s game-terminating kick. Quarterback Joe Cox was 17 of 31 through the air for 242 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in his third consecutive victory as the Georgia starter. Caleb King added 55 yards rushing on eleven carries to lead all Bulldog rushers. Linebacker Rennie Curran had his fourth consecutive game leading Georgia tackles with six stops, and redshirt freshman safety Baccarri Rambo secured the Dogs’ second interception on the year in the second quarter.

“Every win is a good win. We hate to frazzle everyone’s nerves,

but maybe we’re just trying to get the next team overconfident. I am super proud of our effort, especially on defense. They played lights out. It was an exciting game.”

• Game captains were Joe Cox, Michael Moore, Kade Weston and Drew Butler. • Sophomore PK Blair Walsh nailed a 37-yarder game-winner to lift the Bulldogs past Arizona State 20-17. It was his first career gamewinning kick for the Bulldogs and the first by a Bulldog since Brandon Coutu at Vanderbilt in 2007, also a 37-yarder in a 20-17 win. • Georgia blocked its 10th field goal in the Mark Richt era which began in 2001. It was the first since 2006 when Dale Dixson got one against Colorado. • Georgia trailed 17-14 to start the fourth quarter and registered its 17th comeback victory in the Richt era. Georgia has fallen behind in all four of its games this season and has rallied to win its past three, however the deficits against South Carolina and Arkansas came in the first quarter and were by double digits.

The Georgia Bulldogs fell to the visiting Louisiana State Tigers on Saturday, losing on a late 33 yard touchdown run by LSU’s Charles Scott in front of a capacity 92,746 stunned Sanford Stadium fans. The loss was Georgia’s first in the Southeastern Conference on the season and dropped their record to 3-2 (2-1). Albeit the losing effort, the game was played very tight by both teams and certainly not devoid of late game heroics and drama. Leading 6-0 at the start of the fourth quarter, LSU could not stop an 18 play, 60 yard drive by the Georgia offense that was punctuated by a one yard Shaun Chapas touchdown reception from quarterback Joe Cox. Leading 7-6, Georgia succumbed to a 13 play, 88 yard drive of LSU’s that ended with a two yard Charles Scott touchdown scamper. After a failed two point conversion, LSU led 12-7 with 2:53 left. Georgia then marched down the field in just 1:38 and regained its lead as A.J. Green hauled in a spectacular 16-yard touchdown pass from Cox, but was flagged for a controversial excessive celebration penalty that would be enforced on the following kickoff. Following a solid return by LSU’s Trindon Holliday, the Tigers took the ultimate lead 20-13 after Scott’s 33 yard scoring rush with 46 seconds remaining. The loss overshadows solid play by the Georgia defense, led by linebacker Rennie Curran who accumulated 16 tackles, and defensive end Justin Houston, who had two of Georgia’s six sacks on the day. Cox finished the afternoon 18-34 with two touchdowns and one interception, and A.J. Green led all receivers with 99 yards on five receptions. Freshman Washaun Ealey led the Bulldogs’ ground game in his first career appearance, netting 33 yards on eight carries.

“It got wild at the end. They got their chance to take the lead and it

looked like maybe we had time for one more shot. Then we scored so fast and then they scored so fast and we still had some time. It was a little fast and furious there at the end. The bottom line is we didn’t do enough to win

it. We always believe we can win, even to the bitter end, but it just didn’t happen.”

• Game captains were Geno Atkins, Cordy Glenn, A.J. Green and Justin Houston. • Georgia was held scoreless through three quarters for the first time since the Colorado game in 2006. Quarterback Joe Cox came off of the bench to lead the Bulldogs to a 14-13 victory over Colorado. • Georgia’s 18-play touchdown drive in the fourth quarter lasted 7:52. This was the most plays during a TD scoring drive for the Bulldogs since they ran 19 plays covering 87 yards against Tennessee in 1988. That drive lasted 8:45. Today’s scoring drive lasted longer than any TD scoring drive since Georgia scored a TD in 8:33 on 16 plays against Kentucky in 1997. • Georgia held LSU to just three points during the Tigers’ first three trips to the Red Zone and 10 points total in four trips. Georgia’s first stop came on an interception by sophomore Brandon Boykin in the first quarter. Georgia also held LSU on a fourth-and-1 late in the second quarter on Georgia’s 10-yard line.

TENNESSEE

Oct. 10, 2009 • Neyland Stadium – Knoxville, Tenn. The Georgia Bulldogs (3-3, 2-2 SEC) suffered a 45-19 defeat at the hands of the Tennessee Volunteers (3-3, 1-2) on Saturday, October 10 in front of 103,261 fans at Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium. The loss was the Bulldogs’ second consecutive and gave first year Tennessee head coach Lane Kiffin his first victory over a Southeastern Conference opponent. The game was Georgia’s worst offensive output on the season, as the Bulldog offense failed to reach the end zone during the contest. As stagnant as the Georgia offense may have been, the Dogs’ special teams certainly did their part, contributing 12 points to Georgia’s tally of 19. Sophomore cornerback Brandon Boykin returned a kickoff 100-yards for the second time this season, tying the game at 7 with 12:56 left in the second quarter. Kicker Blair Walsh would tie his career long with a 52yard field goal later in the second quarter, and sophomore split end Zach Renner blocked his third career punt out of the end zone for a safety to tie the Georgia record late in the second quarter. The Bulldogs went into the half down 21-12 but the second half belonged to Tennessee as the Bulldogs were unable to put any points on the board other than a 28-yard Bacarri Rambo interception return for a touchdown in the third quarter. Tennessee running backs Montario Hardesty and Bryce Brown added second half touchdown runs and wide receiver Gerald Jones added a touchdown reception from quarterback Jonathan Crompton, his second of the game. Crompton finished the day 20 of 27 for 310 yards, with four touchdowns and one interception. Georgia quarterback Joe Cox finished his day 19 of 34 for 146 yards and two interceptions. Freshman tailback Carlton Thomas led Georgia’s ground game with three carries for 30 yards, and sophomore receiver A.J. Green led the Bulldogs in receiving, as he has done every game thus far this season, with eight catches for 60 yards. Linebacker Rennie Curran had eight tackles for the Georgia defense, while Rambo added four to go along with his defensive touchdown in the losing effort.

“Right now I can tell you Tennessee did a wonderful job. They

played better, tackled better. It’s very obvious that their team was the better team today. We’ve got a long way to go to become a good football

team right now. We’ve got to get back to work, continue to fight and find a way to beat Vanderbilt. That’s where we’re at right now.”

• Game captains were Shaun Chapas, Rennie Curran, Jeff Owens and Drew Butler. • Sophomore cornerback Brandon Boykin had the second 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown this season today. Boykin and former Bulldog Gene Washington share the mark now with two kickoff returns for touchdowns in a season. Boykin’s return versus the Vols also ties the longest scoring play on the road in school history. • Redshirt freshman safety Bacarri Rambo caught a tipped passed for an interception and returned it 28 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. This was Rambo’s second career INT and the first defensive TD for the Bulldogs this year. • Redshirt sophomore split end Zach Renner’s blocked punt was the third of his career tying the school record for blocked punts in a career.

VANDERBILT

Oct. 17, 2009 • Vanderbilt Stadium – Nashville, Tenn. The Georgia Bulldogs defeated the Vanderbilt Commodores in Nashville on Saturday, October 17th, in front of 38,340 fans, many in Georgia red. The tilt served as Vanderbilt’s homecoming contest and stood as Georgia’s 14th win over the Commodores in the last 15th seasons. Georgia’s record improves to 4-3, with a 3-2 Southeastern Conference standing, as Vanderbilt drops to 2-5, including an 0-4 conference record. Georgia struck first with 3:27 remaining in the first quarter as sophomore receiver A.J. Green took a Joe Cox screen pass 65 yards for the score, providing both Georgia fans and media outlets nationally with a highlight play that they will not soon forget. The play was Green’s career long, but the Commodores would soon answer with a Ryan Fowler 41yard field goal to cut the deficit to 7-3. A 2-yard Caleb King scamper and a 42-yard Blair Walsh field goal gave the Dogs a 17-3 lead heading in to the half. Georgia’s second half scoring output, complete with a Blair Walsh 43-yard field goal, a 21-yard reception by King, and a nine yard touchdown run by fullback Fred Munzenmaier rendered a Vanderbilt touchdown pass from quarterback Larry Smith to tight end Branden Barden futile as the Bulldogs took an ultimate 34-10 victory. Georgia was led through the air by quarterback Joe Cox, who was 16 for 31 for 226 and two touchdowns in addition to one interception. Five Bulldog running backs saw action in the game, led by freshman Washaun Ealey who had 13 carries for 71 yards, including a career long 33-yard rush. A.J. Green led the Bulldogs in receiving with 3 catches for 95 yards, and junior linebacker Rennie Curran powered the Georgia defense with nine tackles to raise his SEC lead in the category to 72.

“The team was emotionally ready to play this game. They were able to battle through the week of outside distractions that can take your focus off. Before the game, I liked how they prepared mentally and I felt their energy today. I’ve had weeks like this in my career, but I don’t pay attention to the outside influences. I was convinced that the best thing for us to do was to put blinders on and put on a good performance today for Georgia football.”

#1 FLORIDA

Oct. 31, 2009 • Jacksonville Municipal – Jacksonville, Fla. The University of Georgia Bulldogs changed their uniforms on Saturday, October 31st in Jacksonville against the Florida Gators, but could not change their recent luck in the rivalry, as Georgia fell to Florida for the 17th time in their last 20 meetings. The 41-17 loss dropped Georgia’s record to 4-4 (3-3 in the Southeastern Conference) and elevated number one ranked Florida to 8-0, with a 6-0 conference mark. Georgia donned black pants and wore black helmets for the first time in the program’s history, but it did not provide enough of a spark to give the Bulldogs an upset over the country’s top ranked program. Florida got off to an early start and never relinquished the lead, going up 14-0 in the first quarter following two Riley Cooper touchdown receptions from quarterback Tim Tebow. Georgia answered in the second quarter with a 49-yard Blair Walsh field goal and a 26-yard Aron White touchdown catch from quarterback Joe Cox, but the slashed deficit was short lived as Florida answered with a 56-yard Caleb Sturgis field goal and a 23-yard Tebow rush to give Florida a 24-10 halftime lead. Georgia’s second half efforts were constantly met with a Gator rebuttal, as a Mike Moore 4-yard touchdown catch to make the game a 31-17 contest was answered with another field goal by Sturgis, this one of 44-yards, and a 5-yard Brandon Spikes interception return off a pick from quarterback Logan Gray, who entered in relief of Cox. Cox was 11 of 20 passing for 165 yards and two touchdowns, to go along with three interceptions. Freshman tailback Washaun Ealey gained 70 yards on 17 carries, while also adding a 20-yard reception. Wide Receiver A.J. Green led the Bulldogs in receiving as he has done each game this season, hauling in three passes for 50 yards. Cornerback Brandon Boykin, safety Reshad Jones, and linebacker Rennie Curran all added seven tackles apiece for Georgia in the losing effort.

TENNESSEE TECH

Nov. 7, 2009 • Sanford Stadium - Athens, Ga. The Georgia Bulldogs found themselves back in the win column with a shutout win over the visiting Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles 38-0. The win propelled the Bulldogs to a 5-4 record (3-3 SEC) while dropping Tennessee Tech to a 5-4 mark. The game was Georgia’s first shutout since a 34-0 victory over Alabama-Birmingham at Sanford Stadium in 2006, ironically also coached by Tennessee Tech head coach Watson Brown. The Bulldogs struck fast and furiously, jumping out to a 21-0 lead at the end of the first quarter and a 31-0 lead at halftime. Freshman tailback Washaun Ealey got things started with a seven yard touchdown run, and freshman tight end Orson Charles kept things going for Georgia offensively, hauling in a 23-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Joe Cox, who started the game 10 for 10 passing. Freshman cornerback Branden Smith added a 52-yard touchdown run on a direct snap to give him his second score of the year and a 21-0 Bulldog lead. Ealey then added another touchdown for Georgia, with a 44-yard scamper on the first play of the second quarter. Cox would find senior receiver Michael Moore for the game’s final touchdown with 10:36 remaining in the third quarter. Georgia could not have shutout the Golden Eagles without help from its defense, and Georgia’s defensive line led that unit with six sacks on the day. Freshman defensive end Montez Robinson was responsible for two sacks, while senior defensive tackle Geno Atkins had three tackles for losses and a forced fumble. Sophomore linebacker Marcus Dowtin led the Dogs with seven total tackles. On the day, Cox was 10-13 passing for 140 yards and two touchdowns. Ealey, Smith, and sophomore Caleb King led an overwhelming Georgia running game responsible for 304 total yards with 89, 72, and 71 yards, respectively. Orson Charles had three catches for 42 yards while sophomore tight end Aron White had two receptions for 53 yards, including a game long 27 yarder.

Tennessee Tech 0 Georgia 21

“It was awesome to get a shutout. It doesn’t matter who you play.

It’s fantastic for the program. I am really happy for our defensive players

and coaches. We had tremendous focus to start the game, dominating really on both sides of the ball. Overall, I am very, very happy with the win. It was really good to be back between the hedges again today.”

AUBURN

Nov. 14, 2009 • Sanford Stadium – Athens, Ga. The Georgia Bulldogs defeated the Auburn Tigers 31-24 in front of a sold out Sanford Stadium crowd and a national television audience on ESPN2 Saturday, November 14th. The win moves the Dogs’ record to 6-4 (4-3 Southeastern Conference) while dropping the Tigers to 7-4, with a 3-4 conference mark. Auburn struck first with two early touchdowns through the air. Quarterback Chris Todd found receiver Kodi Burns for a five yard score with 11:13 remaining in the first quarter, and then added to their lead with a 31-yard touchdown strike from Todd to receiver Terrell Zachery. Early in the second quarter, Georgia sophomore receiver A.J. Green went down with an injured shoulder, but his replacement, sophomore receiver Israel Troupe, showed that there would not be any drop off in production as he hauled in a 50-yard Joe Cox touchdown pass on his very first play. A 51-yard Blair Walsh field goal would cut the Bulldog deficit to four with 11:05 remaining in the third quarter, but Georgia running back Washaun Ealey punched in a one yard score to give the Bulldogs a 17-14 lead. After a 37-yard Wes Byrum field goal for Auburn to even the score, Georgia running back Caleb King answered with an 11-yard scoring scamper of his own. The Tigers would not fold, however, as kick returner Demond Washington returned the ensuing kickoff 99 yards to tie the game at 24 with 14:11 remaining in the contest. The Bulldogs showed their fight, and countered with a 24-yard Caleb King touchdown run that proved to be the deciding score, giving the Bulldogs the final 31-24 lead. Auburn drove down the field late in the fourth quarter, however, but redshirt freshman safety Bacarri Rambo literally put his body on the line in order to break up an Auburn pass which could have resulted in a tying touchdown. Rambo fell injured on the play and lay motionless for several minutes before he was carted off the field to a massive stadium-wide chant of his last name. Joe Cox led the Bulldogs through the air with nine completions in 17 attempts for 173 yards and a touchdown. Ealey and King added 98 and 66 yards on the ground, respectively, and Israel Troupe had 62 yards on two receptions to lead the Bulldogs’ receiving corps. Linebacker Rennie Curran led Georgia’s defense with 12 tackles on the night.

Coach Mark Richt said…

“To get the fourth in a row in the series feels good. When we got down 14-0, things could have certainly gone really wrong. But after that, the defense bowed their necks and held them to a field goal the rest of the game. I am very, very proud of what the defense did. The offense, even without A.J., made plays. And we won the turnover battle for the first time this year. When you do that, good things happen to your football team.”

• Game captains were Joe Cox, Ben Jones, Prince Miller and Jeff Owens. • Redshirt sophomore FLK Israel Troupe (2 rec., 62 yards) caught a 50-yard TD from quarterback Joe Cox at the beginning of the second quarter. This was Troupe’s first catch of the year as well as the first TD of his career. • Sophomore SC Brandon Boykin set the single season kickoff return record after returning his 29th kickoff of the year in the first quarter. Gene Washington (1974) and Asher Allen (2007) each had 28 returns in one season. Boykin is already No. 1 in school history with 769 kickoff return yards on 31 returns in 2009. • The Bulldogs wore a baseball decal with the initials “CV” on the back of their helmets in honor of UGA baseball student-athlete Chance Veazey who was involved in a motor vehicle accident on October 28th.

2009 Game Summaries

KENTUCKY

Nov. 21, 2009 • Sanford Stadium • Athens, Ga. The Georgia Bulldogs fell to the Kentucky Wildcats on Senior Night at Sanford Stadium 34-27, dropping their record to 6-5 (4-4 Southeastern Conference) while propelling Kentucky to a 7-4 mark (3-4 SEC). The Bulldogs relinquished a 14-point lead that they held at the half as Kentucky outscored the Dogs in the second half 28-7. Kentucky struck first with a 20-yard Derrick Locke touchdown reception from quarterback Morgan Newton to put the Wildcats up 6-0. A 21-yard Blair Walsh field goal was followed by two consecutive first half Georgia touchdowns, as freshman receiver Rantavious Wooten hauled in a 21-yard Joe Cox pass and freshman tight end Orson Charles caught a 20yard pass from Cox for a score. The Dogs led at halftime 20-6 following a 45-yard field goal from Walsh with 1:22 left in the half. The second half started fast and furiously for Kentucky, as Georgia’s Branden Smith fumbled on the half’s opening kickoff, paving the way for a 12-yard Randall Cobb touchdown run for the Cats. Cox answered with a long 43-yard touchdown heave to Wooten, but it was all Kentucky from this point on. A 27-13 Georgia lead with 7:03 remaining in the third quarter quickly dissipated, as Newton found La’Rod King for a 21-yard touchdown and Derrick Locke for a 60-yard score, followed by a 1-yard Randall Cobb touchdown run that sealed the game’s final score in Kentucky’s favor, 34-27. Cox led the Bulldogs in passing on the day, going 12-30 for 291 yards and two touchdowns, with three interceptions. Freshman tailback Washaun Ealey and sophomore tailback Caleb King anchored Georgia’s running game, each registering 77 yards on 19 and 18 carries, respectively. Sophomore receiver Tavarres King had three catches for 109 yards, while Charles added four receptions for 73 yards, all in the first half. Junior linebacker Rennie Curran led all players with 13 tackles on the evening.

#7 GEORGIA TECH

Nov. 28, 2009 • Bobby Dodd Stadium • Atlanta, Ga. he Georgia Bulldogs regained head-to-head state bragging rights on T Saturday, November 28th, avenging a 2008 season loss to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets with a 30-24 win in front of 55,407 fans at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta. The win finalized Georgia’s regular season record at 7-5 (4-4 SEC), while dropping Georgia Tech’s to 10-2 (7-1 ACC). Georgia’s victory came on the legs of its running back tandem of freshman Washaun Ealey and sophomore Caleb King, who each registered 183 and 166 yards, respectively. Georgia got off to a fast start, rushing for 13 consecutive plays on the way to a Caleb King 6-yard touchdown scamper on its opening drive. Georgia Tech answered with a 42-yard Scott Blair field goal, but Georgia countered with a 22-yard field goal from kicker Blair Walsh and a 13-yard touchdown reception by receiver Michael Moore from quarterback Joe Cox to give the Dogs a 17-3 halftime lead. Demaryius Thomas opened the second half with a bang for Tech, scoring on a 76-yard screen pass from Tech quarterback Josh Nesbitt. Georgia answered the very next play, however, as Caleb King scored on a 75-yard touchdown run to give Georgia a 24-10 lead. Two Blair Walsh field goals were enough to hold off a 5-yard Jonathan Dwyer touchdown run and a 1-yard Josh Nesbitt score for Tech as Georgia won the ballgame 30-24. Joe Cox led the Bulldogs in passing on the evening, going eight for 14 for 76 yards and one touchdown. Ealey and King’s 183 and 166 rushing yards made up the bulk of Georgia’s 339 yards on the ground. Rantavious Wooten led Georgia in receiving with two catches for 25 yards, and linebacker Rennie Curran led the Dogs on defense, with 15 tackles, while safety Reshad Jones had seven tackles and an interception.

TEXAS A&M

Dec. 28, 2009 • Independence Bowl • Shreveport, La. The Georgia Bulldogs closed out the 2009 football season in dominant fashion on Monday, December 28th, as they defeated the Texas A&M Aggies 44-20 in the AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl in front of 49,653 fans at Independence Stadium in Shreveport, Louisiana. The win capped Georgia’s season on a positive note and elevated their record to 8-5 (4-4 Southeastern Conference) while dropping the Aggies to 6-7 (3-5 Big 12). After the Aggies tied the game at 14-14 early in the third quarter, Georgia scored 30 unanswered points en route to posting its national-leading 13thstraight eight-win season. Leading the way for the Dogs was freshman tailback Washaun Ealey and sophomore tailback Caleb King, who each posted solid ground efforts with 78 and 60 yards on 13 and 16 carries, respectively. King added two scores on the ground while junior fullback Shaun Chapas scored his first career rushing touchdown with 4:29 remaining in the game. The game, which was scoreless in the for nearly the entire first half, had a furious finish to the second quarter as three touchdowns were scored in the final 2:33. A&M receiver Jamie McCoy caught a 15-yard score with 2:33 remaining in the half, but Georgia sophomore cornerback Brandon Boykin returned his third kickoff this season for an 81-yard touchdown to even the score. A Bacarri Rambo blocked punt was recovered by Vance Cuff at Texas A&M’s two yard line, which allowed King to punch in a quick score to make it 14-7 going into half. Redshirt sophomore tight end Aron White caught two Joe Cox touchdown passes in the second half as the Dogs controlled the flow of the game en route to their 30 unanswered points and dominating victory. Joe Cox led the Bulldogs in passing in his final collegiate appearance as he was 15 for 28 for 158 with two touchdown passes to White and one interception. While Ealey, King, and Chapas paced the way on the ground for Georgia, sophomore receiver A.J. Green returned after missing the previous two games with a shoulder injury and caught six passes for 57 yards. Georgia’s defense, coached by defensive line coach Rodney Garner and graduate assistants Mitch Doolittle and Todd Hartley, was led by sophomore linebacker Marcus Dowtin, who had nine tackles. Junior linebacker Rennie Curran had eight, and junior safety Reshad Jones had five tackles and an interception.

Coach Mark Richt said…

“I’m very, very proud of our team. I’m very proud of our seniors. I’m very thankful for the job that they did. I’m so glad that we were able to send our seniors off with some true style. Also, I think we probably need to start out by saying what a fantastic job our defensive coaches did. Coach (Rodney) Garner leading the way with our young graduate assistant coaches Mitch Doolittle and Todd Hartley. Really, everybody on that side of the ball kind of moved up to the next level of coaching responsibility.”

Head Coach Mark Richt

ead Coach Mark Richt came to Georgia with the motto, “Finish the drill.” After nine seasons between the hedges, he’s demonstrated what that means by winning two SEC Championships (2002, ‘05), three SEC Eastern Division titles and tied for another, and his 90-27 record is third best in the country in winning percentage among active coaches (.769). And his emphasis on graduation has come to fruition as 161 Bulldog players have earned their degrees since December, 2001. Richt was named SEC Coach of the Year in both 2002 and 2005. His record against non-conference teams is 38-4 and his teams are 33-6 when playing in an opponent’s home stadium. He is one of only nine head coaches in Division I-A history to record 60 or more wins in his first six seasons and 70 or more wins in his first seven seasons, one of only seven to reach 80 wins in his first eight seasons and 90 wins in his first nine seasons. Richt is also one of only six coaches in history to win two SEC championships (2002, 2005) in his first five years, and one of only five head coaches in SEC history to record four straight 10-win seasons (2002-05). The excitement produced by Richt’s teams on the field has been matched by many other aspects surrounding the program. Richt has generated an atmosphere of excitement and unity among the Georgia people. Georgia supporters and fans became impressed with his sincerity, openness, family values, and the casual and genuine way he carried himself. They liked his ideas on building a football program, his commitment to discipline, and the importance he placed on standards of excellence on and off the field. And they liked the way he refused to set limitations on what would be a satisfactory season. “I like to set our goals high,” he said. “I never want to put a ceiling on what we can accomplish.” Richt also had a reputation for developing quarterbacks at FSU and that has contin-

ued at UGA. Among the highlights of his first year was redshirt freshman quarterback David Greene being named SEC Freshman of the Year after a season in which Greene set the school record for passing yards (2,789) and passing TD’s (17) by a freshman. And in ‘02, Greene led the SEC in passing efficiency and was the consensus choice for All-SEC first team. By the end of his career, Greene had become the SEC’s all-time leading passer (11,528 yards) and set the NCAA Division 1-A record for career victories by a starting QB with 42. D.J. Shockley followed Greene in 2005 and led the SEC in passing efficiency. Matthew Stafford came next (2006-08) and set the Georgia record for season total offense in 2008 (3,499 yards) and finished third in career passing yardage (7,731). The NFL is also looking Georgia’s way on a regular basis. Forty-six of Richt’s players have been chosen in the NFL draft over the last seven years including eight chosen in the 2002 NFL draft--the most Georgia players ever selected in a single year.

Under Richt’s direction, the FSU offense had been a national leader. In this seven years as offensive coordinator, the Seminoles finished in the nation’s top five

in scoring offense on five occasions, top 12 in total offense five times, and top 12 in passing offense five times. His 2000 offense finished the regular season ranked first nationally in total offense (549.0 ypg), first in passing offense (384.0 ypg), and third in scoring offense (42.4 ppg). Richt sent six FSU quarterbacks into the NFL between 1987 and 2000. In addition to Weinke (Carolina Panthers), Washington Redskin Casey Weldon was the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy in 1991. His teammate at FSU, Brad Johnson (now Richt’s brother-in-law), was a Pro Bowl selection for Washington in 2000 and led the Tampa Bay Bucs to the Super Bowl title in 2003.

Head Coach Mark Richt Building a Family

Richt married Katharyn in 1987. They have four children. Two came along the usual way — Jon and David. But two came in a very special way. “We were in Sunday School class one day talking about the ills of society,” said Richt. “We explored questions like ‘who’s in charge of taking care of the poor and the elderly.’ We felt like the church should do its share.” Also, Katharyn’s brother and sister-in-law had previously adopted children from the Ukraine. Months later, Katharyn was in the Ukraine, a former republic of the Soviet Union, arranging the adoption of two children, classmates in the same orphanage. She spent 31 days there while Mark spent about eight days. When they returned in July, 1999, they had Zack and Anya, in tow. “They have been a special blessing to all our family,” said Katharyn.

Uga, The Mascot Legacy

Although the University of Georgia is now known as the home of Uga, the pure white English bulldog, several mascots led the Red and Black before Frank W. Seiler provided the current lineage beginning in 1956.

The Goat, Feb. 22, 1892 Georgia’s mascot for its first football game against Auburn, Feb­ruary 22, 1892 in Atlanta, Ga., was a goat. Old newspaper clippings indicate that the goat wore a black coat with red U.G. letters on each side. He also had on a hat with ribbons all down his high horns, and the Auburn fans yelled throughout the game “shoot the billy-goat.”

1946 Georgia-Georgia Tech game in Athens, and the canine appeared to be suited for the mascot position. Smith agreed to loan Butch to the University during the football season along with a female puppy named Tuffy. The female died of a heart attack following the GeorgiaKentucky game in 1948, but Butch continued to serve. Spending the off-season at Smith’s home in Warner Robins, Butch was tragically shot in the summer of 1951 by a policeman after the dog escaped from his pen and was found roaming the streets. Butch is buried behind Smith’s business along Watson Boulevard. In 2004 plans for a marker honoring Butch in his hometown were put into motion by longtime Warner Robins resident Guy Fussell.

Mike, 1951-55 Butch was succeeded by Mike, another brindled English bulldog, owned by C. L. Fain. Mike lived in the field house on campus and died of natural canine causes in 1955. As his master’s thesis, Gene Owens of Fort Worth, Texas, cast the bronze statue of Mike which is located at the entrance of Memorial Hall.

Trilby, 1894 In 1894, Georgia’s mascot was a solid white female bull terrier owned by a student, Charles H. Black, Sr., of Atlanta. Trilby, named Trilby with owner Charles H. Black after a novel by George Du Maurier, served as the campus pet and mascot for the Chi Phi fraternity.

Uga, The Mascot Legacy

Uga I, 1956-66 “Hood’s Ole Dan” Record: 53-48-6 The current Uga line of solid white English bulldogs began with Uga I, Hood’s Ole Dan, born Dec. 2, 1955, in Columbus. Uga I was given to Cecelia Seiler by a friend, Frank Heard of Columbus and appeared in his first game in the 1956 home Uga I with Hannah Jones opener. As recalled by Sonny Seiler, “...his original red jerseys were made by Cecelia. It was necessary to take up children’s t-shirts to fit the dog in the right places. There is no telling how many of these jerseys he wore out. During the early games in Athens, especially the hot ones before he had a dog house, the large green hedges that surround Sanford Stadium afforded welcome shade in the heat of battle. Unfortunately, the hedges constantly tore these jerseys and new ones had to be made.” epitaph: Damn Good Dog SPECIAL APPEARANCES

He led Georgia to six bowl games in nine years and closed out his career in ultimate fashion winning the 1980 Uga III NCAA championship.

He died just weeks later. epitaph: How ‘Bout This Dawg Uga IV, 1981-89 “Seiler’s Uga Four” Record: 77-27-4 Uga IV was perhaps the most active of all the Georgia mascots, standing as the only one to attend a bowl game every year of his service (1981-89). He took over for Uga III in the 1981 season opener and over the next nine seasons, led Georgia to a record of 77-27-4. The highlight of his career was his personal appearance at the Heisman Trophy Ban­quet with Herschel Walker in New York on December 9, 1982. Uga IV was escorted through the banquet hall by the president of the Down­town Athletic Club, and was earlier photographed with Herschel by news photographers from across the country. The proud Bulldog donned his game jersey for the outing but added the formal touch of a collar and black tie. Uga IV was the first mascot invited to the Heisman Banquet. Declared ‘‘Dog of the Decade’’ by Vince Dooley in 1991, Uga IV was posthumously awarded the highest honor available to University of Georgia mascots — the Georgia varsity letter. epitaph: The Dog of the Decade Uga IV with Marty Argo

Uga, The Mascot Legacy

Otto, 1986 “The Substitute” Record: 3-1

Although Otto was not pure white like his father, he was called upon to fill in for his younger brother, Uga IV, who injured ligaments in his left hind knee when jumping off a hotel bed before the Vanderbilt contest. In four games during the 1986 season, Otto led the team to a 3-1 record and also co-mascotted, along with Uga IV, a victory over instate rival Georgia Tech. After winning his first two games, fans cheered, “2-and-0 with Otto!” Dooley, serving as head coach during Otto’s brief tenure, favored the substitute the most. “I have always had a great affection for those who came off the bench and performed, and he did that and had a great time,” Otto Dooley said. Otto is buried in the Seiler’s backyard.

Uga V, 1990-99 “UGA IV’s Magillicuddy II” Record: 65-39-1

In the first game of 1990, Uga V officially began his reign as the Georgia mascot taking over from his father Uga IV, who passed away at his home in Savannah on Feb. 26, 1990. Uga V was the last pup sired by Uga IV and was born on March 6, 1990. Named in honor of one of the greatest Bulldogs, Dan Magill, former Assistant Athletic Director for Public Relations and longtime tennis coach and sports information director. Surprisingly, the Seiler family became aware that Uga IV’s mate was expecting only 10 days before the litter was due. This notice came a week after Uga IV had passed away at his home in Savannah from kidney failure. There were only three pups in the litter and the last one born on March 6 was the only solid white male. Uga V had been perhaps the most well known of all the Bulldog mascots highlighted by his appearUga V ance on the cover of the April 28, 1997, Sports Illustrated which declared him the nation’s best college mascot. Rocketed to stardom, he also appeared in Clint Eastwood’s “Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil” — filmed in his hometown of Savannah, Ga. Uga V also presided over Georgia’s most successful collective sporting effort in department history as the Bulldogs claimed four NCAA team titles during the 1998-99 season — women’s swimming and diving, women’s gymnastics, men’s tennis and men’s golf — and placed second in the Directors’ Cup race. He died on Nov. 22, 1999, just over two months after his retirement. epitaph: “Nation’s Best College Mascot”—Sports Illustrated

Uga VI, 1999-2008 “Uga V’s Whatchagot Loran” Record: 87-27

In 2007, Uga VI became the winningest mascot in school history and owned a record of 87-27. The fall of 2008 would have been his 10th season after Uga VI reigned over more games than any other mascot with 114. He died on June 27, 2008. In his last game, the Bulldogs defeated Hawai’i 41-10 in the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on Jan. 1, 2008. Georgia finished the season ranked second in the AP poll. The pregame passing of the bone ceremony from Uga V to his heftier and friskier son, Whatchagot Loran, took place at the 1999 Georgia-South Carolina contest. Only a year old at his coronation, Uga VI stands as the biggest of all the Uga mascots weighing in at 65 pounds — 20 pounds heavier than his father. His first season climaxed in a magnificent come from behind victory over Purdue at the Outback Bowl in Tampa. The comeback from a 25-point deficit marked an unprecedented feat in Georgia annals and the largest comeback in collegiate bowl history.

The 2000 season ended in Hawaii, but due to the distance and a quarantine rule, Uga VI missed the O’ahu Bowl, marking the first time the Georgia mascot had missed the postseason game since the 1969 Sun Bowl. Alongside first-year head coach Mark Richt, Uga VI saw his third consecutive 8-4 season, which included a 26-24 win Uga VI at then-No. 6 Tennessee for the Bulldogs’ first win in Knoxville since 1980. The streak of consecutive bowl victories ended at three for the beloved mascot as Georgia fell to Boston College 20-16 in the Music City Bowl in Nashville. Uga VI and Georgia experienced their best season in two decades as the 2002 Bulldogs won a record 13 games (to only one loss), and topped Arkansas to win the program’s first league title since 1982. And Uga VI roamed the sidelines as the Bulldogs defeated Florida State in the 2003 Nokia Sugar Bowl, 26-13. The wins kept piling up for Uga VI and the Bulldogs in 2003, as the team posted an 11-3 record, returned to the SEC Championship game before falling to eventual national champion LSU. Uga VI worked on his tan in sunny Florida as Georgia held on for a 34-27 overtime victory against Purdue in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando. The 2004 season saw the Bulldogs post a 10-2 record, and Uga VI returned to Tampa for the second time in his young career, as Georgia earned a 24-21 win against Wisconsin in the Outback Bowl. Year 2005 ended with a record of 10-3 and a loss in the Nokia Sugar Bowl 38-35 against West Virginia on January 2, 2006. The game was played in Atlanta, Ga. due to destruction in New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina. The 2006 season marked the 50th anniversary of the Uga legacy of mascots at UGA. Georgia returned to Atlanta, Ga. to defeat Virginia Tech in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on December 30, 2006 to end the season with a 9-4 record. In 2007, Uga VI passed Uga IV (77-24-4) for the most wins of any bulldog in school history. epitaph: A Big Dog For A Big Job, And He Handled It Well

Uga VII, 2008-2009 “Loran’s Best” Record: 16-7

“Loran’s Best” officially became “Uga VII,” when he was introduced for the first time to the Sanford Stadium crowd prior to kickoff of the Georgia vs. Georgia Southern game August 30,2008. He was escorted onto the field by members of the Frank W. “Sonny” Seiler family of Savannah who have owned the continuous line of mascots since Uga I took up the mantle in 1956. Uga VII Uga VII passed away unexpectedly on Nov. 19 of heart-related causes. It was the Thursday before the final home game of the 2009 season and the Bulldogs did not have a live mascot at the game. Instead, a wreath was placed on UGA VII’s doghouse, and the players wore a special UGA VII decal on their helmets to remember him.

Russ, 2009 Record: 2-0

Russ

“Russ,” the five-year-old half brother of Uga VII, served as the Bulldog mascot for the Georgia Tech game in Atlanta and helped his squad to a 30-24 win. He also served in the 2009 Advocare 100 Independence Bowl in Shreveport, La. where Georgia defeated Texas A&M 44-20. He was the first substitute mascot since “Otto” in 1986. He will not be a permanent Uga mascot. Uga VIII will be selected before the first football game in 2010.
