After averaging more than 10 wins per season from 2001-08, Georgia has backtracked with a 14-12 record over the past two years, leading to rampant speculation that Mark Richt's job is on the line in 2011. The gem of February's top-10 recruiting class, No. 1-rated RB Isaiah Crowell, could be pivotal for the Bulldogs after the offseason losses of their top two rushers. There are legitimate concerns about the offensive line with only two starters back, but some analysts are bullish on the Dawgs because of their schedule. After opening against Boise State in the Georgia Dome, UGA gets a conference slate that is super friendly by SEC standards, with Alabama, LSU and Arkansas -- maybe the three best teams in the league -- all missing from the menu.
