ATHENS, GA - There's a different feeling around Athens these days. The Georgia players notice it when they go to class, or surf the Internet, or head out to dinner.
The Bulldogs have revived their season with five straight wins, actually looking like the favorite in the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division with both South Carolina and Florida plagued by injuries.
No. 24 Georgia (5-2, 3-1 SEC) has bounced back from losses to Boise State and South Carolina at the start of the season, taking advantage of a favorable schedule.
But everyone knows the success of this season will be determined in the final month, when the Bulldogs face a gauntlet that includes Florida, No. 19 Auburn and No. 20 Georgia Tech.
