Marcus Lattimore

#1 ranked runningback likes UGA.

The win over South Carolina was huge. Big for Georgia's season. Big for beating Spurrier again. Big for recruiting, too.

Marcus Lattimore had to like seeing Georgia stick with the young players, giving Branden Smith and Carlton Thomas chances to play through their mistakes. Perhaps Lattimore even rooted for the Dawgs in the game. Who knows? In any case, Georgia is back into consideration for Lattimore.

None of the backs we have have just grabbed the starting runningback position to the exclusion of all others. Lattimore probably likes his chances of making a contribution early.

It will be hard to beat out South Carolina and Tennessee, but Coach Richt has made an impression on Lattimore's family, and that goes a long way.
