Georgia Bulldogs voted AJC Sports Turkeys of the Year

Congratulations to the Georgia Bulldogs, who were named the AJC Sports Turkeys of the Year Thursday.
The Bulldogs received 30 percent of the nearly 8,000 votes and edged the beleaguered SEC officials for the coveted title.

Game over; season too.

Poor, indecisive Matt …
