First, the injuries started mounting up for the Georgia Bulldogs. Now the losses are too along with any hopes of getting back to Atlanta for a second straight season.

At least the Bulldogs have a much-needed break in the schedule to rest up before the annual showdown against Florida.

Aaron Murray says this is a much needed open date for the Bulldogs to figure this out. He says they need some soul searching to figure out what they need to do to get better with a lot of games left.

The Bulldogs survived their injuries in pulling out an overtime win at Tennessee.

Then they lost to Missouri and had two more injuries Saturday in a 31-27 loss at Vanderbilt that knocked Georgia out of the Top 25 on Sunday.
