ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Mark Richt isn't ready to predict the winner
of Georgia's tailback competition.

The Georgia coach isn't even predicting there will be only one
winner in the effort to replace Knowshon Moreno at tailback.

Caleb King, who entered preseason as the No. 1 tailback, ran for
only 247 yards and one TD last season. And freshman Carlton Thomas
was the only healthy tailbacks in spring practice.

But now the competition is more interesting with the return of
Richard Samuel, Dontavius Jackson and Kalvin Daniels from injuries.
Then there's newcomer Washaun Ealey, who set Georgia high school
records for touchdowns in a season (58 in 2007) and career (133).

Georgia fans, brace for a potential tailback-by-committee
approach.
