ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia senior nose tackle John Jenkins can look back at last football season with a lot of fond memories.

It's just that none of them came early.

After arriving last summer following a two-year stint at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, the 6-foot-3, 358-pounder from Meriden, Conn., failed to make it through the first preseason practice. He recovered from that, but then came opening games against Boise State and South Carolina.

"Those two games told me that I didn't know what I was doing and that I needed to fix it quick," Jenkins said.
