ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Washaun Ealey and the Georgia Bulldogs are
winning the turnover battle and hiding their razors.
Ealey, Georgia's sophomore tailback, lost fumbles near the goal
line in losses to South Carolina and Mississippi State early in the
Ealey didn't fumble while rushing for a season-high 123 yards
with a touchdown in last week's 43-0 win over Vanderbilt. Georgia
was a combined plus-5 in turnover margin in back-to-back lopsided
wins over Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
Coach Mark Richt said Tuesday his players are allowed to grow
their beards every week they come out on top in turnovers.
The coach says he hopes his players are the "nastiest looking
bunch in America" by the end of the year.
The shaggy Bulldogs play at Kentucky on Saturday.
