On paper, Georgia has every reason to believe it has a legitimate shot to contend for the BCS title. The Bulldogs are coming off a 10-4 season and their first SEC East title since 2005, and return nine starters from one of the nation's top defenses. The question is how many of those starters will be available early in the season, and coach Mark Richt isn't saying. Four could face disciplinary suspensions, yet Georgia believes it has enough defensive depth to keep winning until a full complement of players is available. Despite a few lineup questions -- particularly at offensive line and tailback, and in the secondary -- the Bulldogs have a manageable schedule and the star power to potentially continue last season's progress.
