Before you start waving the Stars and Stripes for the U.S.-Ghana match later this afternoon at the World Cup, let's first check out what's happening a bit closer to home in the SEC: By now, you're probably familiar with Phil Steele's preseason magazine, which breaks down college football into incredible statistical detail.
With spring practice still a few weeks away, this week we'll discuss five players to watch once the Bulldogs open workouts on March 18. We talked about wide receiver Jonathon Rumph and offensive guard Brandon Kublanow in the first two installments.

Continuing our run-up to Georgia's spring practice, this week we'll review the Bulldogs' five best recruiting classes of the last decade. Today, we'll look at No. 2: The 2011 class initially dubbed as "The Dream Team," which immediately helped the Bulldogs rebound from the only losing season in Mark Richt's tenure, a 6-7 mark in 2010, and could further cement a winning legacy in the next two seasons.

ATHENS, Ga. -- Chris Wilson needed only about 30 minutes in Georgia's first preseason practice before he started fiddling with his depth chart. The new defensive line coach's face broke into a wide grin when explaining why he loudly informed Sterling Bailey -- who finished spring practice as a starting defensive end -- that Ray Drew was now the starter in Georgia's base defense and that Bailey would be the first-team end when the Bulldogs play a nickel defense.
