2011 Georgia Bulldogs

Updated on August 25, 2015

A Look at the 2011 Georgia Bulldogs Football

Having to back into the SEC title game, the Dawgs were eventually blown out by LSU in Atlanta. Here's a look back at the freshman who made an immediate impact, along with other important tidbits about the season.

This page is a work in progress, and we'll continue trying to compare and contrast some of the pre-season media hype with the way things turned out.

The first example looks at the UGA staff, media and even player response to freshman Malcom Mitchell's eye-opening pre-season practice habits.

What can we learn from those summer rumors?

Following up ... how did things turn out?

Bulldawg Nation was feeling better about their receiving corps after hearing rave reviews from the practice field about incoming freshman Malcolm Mitchell. As an example, Aaron Murray had this to say about Mitchell to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"I haven't seen speed and quickness like that for a while," Murray told the paper.

AJC.com on July 21, 2011.

How did that turn out?

First of all, that means a lot considering that Murray spent last season throwing to the future #4 pick overall (AJ Green - Cincinnati). Secondly... It looks like Murray was right. Mitchell ended being the best receiver for the Dawgs in 2011. He was 3rd Team ALL-SEC and by far our number one threat on offense.

The World's Largest Cocktail Party: Georgia-Florida OCT 29, 2011

OCT 29, 2011 - - UGA overcame a terrible first half to hold the Gators to just 3 second-half points for the win in Jacksonville today. The loss was the 4th in a row for Florida this season under new head coach Will Muschamp. Georgia has won 6 in a row this season.

The Dawgs needed this win - they've only won 3 of the last 21 games vs. Florida.

Offensive Stars

* Richard Samuel helped close the door on the game with some big runs while Isaiah Crowell was on the bench with an injury. Unfortunately, he hurt his ankle on the last play of the game. He ended the game with 58 yards rushing and 1 TD.

*Chris Conley: the freshman wideout came up with some big catches today. Conley has seen limited action on offense so far this year, but he played with poise when it mattered. He had 3 catches for 38 yards.

Defensive Stars

*Jarvis Jones had four sacks today and helped the Dawgs hold Florida to -19 yards rushing. (4 sacks ties Jones for most second-most sacks in a game in Georgia history).

NOTES:

* Florida had zero rushing first downs in the game.

* Offensive lineman Dallas Lee was injured in the game (leg) and was on crutches on the sideline.

* WR Rhett McGowan caught his first pass as a Bulldog in the 4th quarter.
