Dogs' Mitchell expected to make full recovery

  • Follow College

ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia receiver Malcolm Mitchell is expected to recover for the start of the 2014 season after having surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Mitchell, a junior who was No. 9 Georgia's top returning receiver, had surgery Tuesday after tearing the ligament in the Bulldogs' loss at Clemson on Aug. 31. He will miss the remainder of the season.

Georgia associate athletic director for sports medicine Ron Courson says a full recovery is expected for Mitchell, who is expected to apply for a medical redshirt and have two years of eligibility remaining.

Mitchell had 40 catches for 572 yards and four touchdowns in 2012.

Do I understand it right that

Do I understand it right that he injured the knee while showboating after a play in the Clemson game?

No, he injured his knee after

No, he injured his knee after jumping up and down, celebrating a Georgia TD. I think it'd be a stretch to call celebrating for a TD as being "showboating". It's a big loss for the Dawgs, but it gives them the opportunity to bring up some other players in his place.

Figures the polls would drop

Figures the polls would drop Georgia 7 slots after the loss to Clemson but only move'm up 3 when we beat a higher ranked USC. Folks love to hate UGA but we cannot be denied!!!

If an athlete really wants to

If an athlete really wants to rub it in the face of his opponent, he should follow the advice of the late, great Vince Lombardi; "act like you've been there before". In other words, all of the chest bumping and other antics only serve to motivate the opponent. Hand the ball to the ref and trot off the field like it was a routine play.

What's the fun in that? I get what you're saying, but celebrating is part of the game.
