David Ching and Radi Nabulsi: Making the Play – Malcolm Mitchell
DawgNation opens its latest series, which takes an in-depth look at the Georgia Bulldogs’ most memorable plays of 2011, starting with a breakdown by Malcolm Mitchell of a 71-yard bomb from Aaron Murray against Tennessee that could’ve and should’ve gone all the way.

David Ching writes: With the stigma that sometimes comes with recruiting too many juco transfers, the Bulldogs are cautious in how many they bring in each year. Sometimes those players don't make the grade, while others reap the benefits of taking such a step.

Ching Q&A Insider: Georgia nose guard John Jenkins was a juco transfer, and the move from a two-year school in Connecticut to the blazing heat of a Georgia summer wasn’t easy for the standout D-lineman.

Ching Insider: Practice notes. In Mark Richt’s quest to improve Georgia’s struggling special teams, the emphasis this preseason has been on quality -- improved quality of the work in practice and higher quality personnel on those coverage units.

Adams Insider: DawgNation looks at the top 10 targets available for the Georgia Bulldogs -- already loaded with 28 commitments for the Class of 2013 -- as football season begins.

DawgNation Roundtable Insider: It has been a while since the Bulldogs were ranked as high as No. 6 the polls -- preseason or otherwise. Mark Richt has said he wishes the polls would come out later, and he discussed how he votes in the coaches’ poll. This week’s Roundtable discussion is twofold, centering on Georgia being worthy of a high ranking as well as views on head coaches having a say in the polls.

Ching Insider: Around the hedges in 80 Days. Brand new freshman O-lineman John Theus, with a heaping helping of expectations on his shoulders, has held up well thus far in camp and seems on track for an outstanding college career.

DawgNation Roundtable Insider: Georgia’s safeties, who already might open the season minus leader Bacarri Rambo, are just one of the several units the Roundtable considers as being especially vulnerable to injuries that come with fall camp.

David Ching writes Insider: Georgia's Allison Schmitt wins gold in London.

Video: Georgia linebacker Chase Vasser talks to DawgNation's Radi Nabulsi about the grueling task of facing Georgia’s running backs and what it takes to garner the UGA coaches’ attention the right way during camp.

Ching Insider: Position previews – Special teams. After losing a Ray Guy Award winner, a record-setting Lou Groza Award finalist and the 2011 Paul Hornung Award winner , perhaps no unit is more unsettled than special teams as the preseason starts.

Ching Insider: Around the Hedges in 80 Days – 31 days to kickoff. While his freshman season established him as an SEC standout, Malcolm Mitchell's sophomore season will be a grueling test of his endurance while he faces immense expectations as a cornerback, a receiver and possibly a kick returner.
