A series of events of late have shown that the predicted last place SEC East finish for first year coach Mark Fox's Georgia Bulldogs may be off.
Georgia recently defeated the top 25 ranked Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Yes, the same Yellow Jackets squad that defeated Duke in Atlanta today.
Georgia also came to Lexington and played John Calipari's undefeated Wildcats very tough, in a game that featured a number of lead changes, before the Wildcats put some distance between the teams in the closing minutes to come away with a 76-68 win.
These are definitely not the Bulldogs of recent vintage who were more known for physical play than for wins in Dennis Felton's tenure at UGa.
Fox has taken a core group of talented players and has them playing as a team. Fox isn't playing the style he prefers, and is playing a more deliberate pace that allows his team to play to its strength on the inside, and all around abilities of Trey Thompkins.
Bulldogs show SEC they are for real
