David Ching writes Insider: This summer's influx of new freshmen, including ILB Leonard Floyd, will only bolster Todd Grantham's masterful orchestration of carefully moving parts in the UGA defense.

G-Day game notebook 

April, 15, 2012
ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia’s coaches hardly would have predicted last September that Ken Malcome would rank among the Bulldogs’ top options at tailback following spring practice.

For a period of one whole day last Sept. 28, Malcome wasn’t a member of the team at all. He informed coach Mark Richt of his intentions to transfer because he was buried on the depth chart following a spate of injuries, only to return a day later.

Daniel Shirey/US PresswireMark Richt said at G-Day that it does his heart good to see a player who has previously struggled -- such as Ken Malcome -- turn around his game and excel.
Malcome didn’t play for another five games after rejoining the team -- he missed the last of those games, against New Mexico State, for failing a drug test -- but began to make an impact by the end of the season, leading the Bulldogs in rushing in each of their last three games. His progress continued this spring as coaches complimented him for an improved focus and attitude. That helped him move up the depth chart.
