Georgia Players Angry Over Teammate's Rant

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- There's some bad blood on Georgia's defense -- and not just because the Bulldogs have been a disappointment on that side of the line.

At least two players took issue Tuesday with a rant by safety Shawn Williams, who accused the defense of playing "soft" and added that inside linebackers Alec Ogletree and Amarlo Herrera should never come out of the game.

Their backups, Michael Gilliard and Christian Robinson, were not pleased.

Gilliard says he feels his manhood has been challenged and vows to be highly motivated when the 12th-ranked Bulldogs face third-ranked Florida in a game that will likely send the winner to the Southeastern Conference championship game.

Robinson says no player "wants to hear they're soft." He also says he would never criticize a teammate in the media.
