The question keeps coming up, but the Georgia Bulldogs are trying to move past that last play in the SEC Championship game.

"That's something that we put behind us now," said Malcolm Mitchell. "After the game you speak on it a little bit, but not too much because you don't want it to bring you down."

UGA missed a chance at a national championship with a loss to Alabama in Atlanta.

But there's not time to think about that now. Georgia is focusing on filling holes in their defense.

"We lost a lot, but at the same time we recruit," said Damian Swann. "We've got a lot of guys that can play."

The good news is the offense is still mostly in place. Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley return to the backfield.

"They played so well and were so productive as freshman," said head coach Mark Richt. "You'd love to think they'd get better every year. I'm not sure they can as far as productivity is concerned, but I know they're going to be better rout runners, they're going to be better pass protectors and I think they're going to understand the system better."

Georgia will once again battle suspension in their first game. Safety Josh Harvey-Clemons will miss the Clemson game for marijuana use. Kicker Marshall Morgan was arrested for BUI at the start of July. They are still deciding on repercussions for that offense.
