Georgia Bulldogs (Last Year: 21-12, 9-7 in SEC)

2011-12 Projected Depth Chart:

F/C: John Florveus (Jr)/Tim Dixon (Fr)/John Cannon (Fr)

F: Marcus Thornton (So)/Donte Williams (So)/Nemanja Djurisic (Fr)

G/F: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Fr)/Connor Nolte (Sr)

SG: Dustin Ware (Sr)/Sherrard Brantley (Jr)

PG: Gerald Robinson (Sr)/Vincent Williams (Jr)

Gone: PF-Trey Thompkins, SG-Travis Leslie, F/C-Jeremy Price, F/C-Chris Barnes

2011-12 Outlook:
The losses of Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie to the NBA Draft were significant blows for Mark Fox and the Georgia Bulldogs. Had both players returned, UGA would have been a likely Top 25 team. Instead, Georgia faces a re-loading process.

Fox will rely heavily on his senior backcourt this season. Gerald Robinson is back to run the show and probably assume the role of go-to scorer. He will be joined in the backcourt by sharpshooter Dustin Ware who hit 43.5% of his triple tries last season. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is a McDonald�s All-American and figures to replace Leslie at the three.

There is also experience off the bench at guard. Vincent Williams saw his playing time dip last year due to the arrival of Robinson, but played decent minutes as a freshman. Sherrard Brantley was the first guard off the bench last season and should assume that role once again.

The frontcourt is the big question mark for Georgia as they have to replace their top three post players from a year ago; Thompkins, Jeremy Price, and Chris Barnes. Sophomore forward Marcus Thornton will be asked to play a much bigger role this season even though he is not a true post player. The former Georgia Mr. Basketball had a lackluster freshman campaign, but could be bound for a breakout year. Donte Williams is the only other returnee but played sparingly as a freshman.

Seven-foot JUCO transfer John Florveus is a wirey big man who will try to provide the Bulldogs with an defensive presence. He is not the most skilled post player and will struggle against more physical bigs, but has to step in right away and fill the void in the middle. Freshman Tim Dixon is a similar type of center who needs to get stronger as well. Nemanja Djurisic has a nice inside/outside game and will try to work himself into the rotation.

If Georgia is going to reach the success they had last season, the guards will have to carry them. The frontcourt is young, inexperienced, and lacks the bangers down low that they had a year ago. Another trip to the NCAA Tournament isn�t completely out of the picture, but it certainly is a longshot.

Player to Watch: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, SG
KC-P (do people call him that because that is much easier to write than Caldwell-Pope every time?) is a gifted shooter and all-around scorer. He is also more than capable of handling the rock and using his creativity to score around the hoop. KC-P could very well be the x-factor this season for the Bulldogs. If he can make a major splash during his freshman campaign, UGA could compete for another tourney berth.

Key Non-Conference Games:
  • 11/21 vs. California (CBE Classic)
  • 11/22 vs. Notre Dame/Missouri (CBE Classic)
  • 12/2 vs. Cincinnati (SEC/Big East Challenge)

    Predicted Pac-12 Finish: 10th

    Much may be carried out to build up the crash-worthiness of the automobiles QuotesChimp generate. Security progress pieces has to be dealt with. Aspect-effect safety requirements ought to be updated to lessen thoracic/stomach harms and brain accidents from experience of the a pillar and from sidedoor ejection, especially in automobile-to-automobile aspect-effect accidents. Improved rollover-protection becomes necessary, using a necessity that antilock brakes be set up in each automobile to cut back roll overs. Automated inactive discipline security conditions, presently created for voyager vehicles, should really be expaned to incorporate gentle vehicles and vehicles, that have become increasingly more well-liked by the driving people. Less harms are equaled by safer automobiles. Less harms shift underwriters' numbers involving their threat of reduction. A lower-risk of reduction permits rates to be reduced by the corporations.

    > Valid or no, the snickering and wikcarcesing about the comments from Fedor's management have been regurgitated to death at pretty much every MMA forum on the Internet for going on two weeks now. And people still think it's witty and novel. Yet this doesn't hold true for Dana White-bashing, So you'll forgive me if I pay it no mind.

    shredding is not in my bag of usual tricks but I can deinlitefy see the benefits in this lesson as it easily adapts to many different genre and styles of guitar playing. And as far as the comments on there being a lack of soul in his playing run? scales and spider exercises for 10 minutes and then show off that purdy mouth

    alsoknownasallenkeys / Why do people alyaws complain about reviews being too low? If their all too low then relatively they are correct. Technically 10 is perfect and 5 should be average so 7/10 is a good score. The game has good aspects but is a bit boring and doesn't have anything special about it just a few old ideas shoved together. 7 out of 10 is as high as it can get for a game like this or every single games that isn't rubbish will be getting 8 s or above

    This game was pretty hyped when they ancnouned a reboot to deus ex last year and any game that is released on a multiplatform makes loads of profit, so personally i think this game had good reception, i actually know a lot of people who purchased it because of its longevity. Besides its a good change of pace considering most games are all about constant action, weak story lines, and 6 hours worth of gameplay, give or take.

    That's my problem as well. I dont want to play minmagies, i want to play an assassin. And my opinion is that they raped the game with so much extra content like investment, bombcrafting, sending assassins to missions, den fights, that on the one hand made other revelant things look smaller, and on the other hand pulls me out of the magic, the environment creates . I miss horses for faster travel, and I find it pretty annoying that now every soldier has rifles and grenades.
