ATHENS, Ga. -- With Saturday's 19-10 victory over Kentucky, the Georgia Bulldogs finished a chapter in what has become one of the more impressive turnarounds in college football this season. After last season's disappointing 6-7 record, the Bulldogs' shaky start to 2011 had most writing them off after back-to-back losses to Boise State and South Carolina. But a funny thing happened through the next nine games. Georgia forgot how to lose. Now Mark Richt has Georgia heading to its fourth SEC championship game since he became head coach in 2001, and the Bulldogs' on-field success certainly has not gone unnoticed by recruits. DawgNation spoke to a number of Georgia commitments to get their take on the big win for the Bulldogs.
2012 group eager to be part of team
Georgia's 2012 recruiting class is just months away from signing letters of intent and heading to campus, and the excitement is unmistakable when they talk about Georgia's win against the Wildcats. Defensive tackle Jonathan Taylor (Millen, Ga./Jenkins County), a 6-foot-4, 315-pound ESPNU150 prospect who committed to the Bulldogs over Alabama and Georgia Tech, had twice the reason to celebrate Saturday.
Excitement was everywhere Saturday for the Bulldogs' SEC East championship, and UGA's 2012, 2013 and even 2014 commits added plenty of happy interjections.
