Another rumor, that is. … There was another reason for Richt to be in a good mood: The Bulldogs are close to full strength, avoiding any academic casualties. Last year, three Georgia players, including tailback Caleb King, were academically ineligible for the Liberty Bowl. This time around, Richt reported that everyone had made it academically.“Those guys have done well,” Richt said. “It gets rid of a lot of distractions,” quarterback Aaron Murray said. “We had a couple last season, and we don’t have to worry about that now. We just have to worry about practicing, getting ready for the bowl game.” I presume that includes a certain freshman running back about whom I was hearing a fair amount of academic crazy talk in the past couple of weeks. And Richt had better be careful with that stuff about Mike Gilliard cavorting with barnyard animals.  Next thing you know… Filed under: Georgia Football

Georgia Bulldogs: Is 'Tampa' Mitchell Making a Move in Tampa ?

The chatter around a potential move for Malcolm 'Tampa' Mitchell seems to be reaching a lukewarm pitch as Anthony Dasher of UGASports.com is reporting that the true freshman sensation could possibly take some reps at defensive back as well as wide receiver in the near future.  Head coach Mark Richt said he wouldn't be opposed to giving a shot to Mitchell, who...

Georgia Football: 2012 SEC Schedule Will Be As Easy as 1-2-3?

The Southeastern Conference (SEC) has finally released the Georgia Bulldogs 2012 schedule and, at least at first glance, Mark Richt's club appears to have an easy way to the SEC Championship. The Bulldog's schedule not only includes seven home games, but they won't have to face South Carolina until six weeks into the season as their newest division opponent, Missouri...

UGA 2012 Schedule: No Bama

The SEC just released the 2012 SEC football schedule.  The Bulldogs will avoid playing Bama and will instead pick up Ole Miss. Georgia will not get a bye week before the Cocktail Party as the SEC moved the UK game back a week.  The bye week is currently Oct. 13th.   On the other hand, the Gators don't have a bye week either.  They play at South Carolina prior to our match...

Not so funny anymore

Once upon a time, Mark Richt could joke about Georgia’s special teams’ troubles: After Georgia struggled on kickoffs yet again, Richt joked that he might have to scour Europe in hopes of finding a kicker with a strong enough leg to help Georgia win some field-position battles. “We might have to go to Poland or something to find a guy who can kick it out of the end zone,”...

Georgia coach happy to see Matthew Stafford's NFL success

Tampa, Fla. — Georgia coach Mark Richt knew the second former Bulldogs quarterback Matthew Stafford decided to enter the NFL draft after his junior season, the record-setting signal-caller would have a tough go of it in the NFL.

Tampa talk

Aaron Murray and Mark Richt from the first day of bowl practice: Nothing particularly earth shattering there, but there does seem to be a sense that they’re in a better place than they were a year ago.  (Duh.) By the way, you can get an idea of why Richt was complaining (“A lot of windows over there too, you know…”) about all the buildings overlooking the practice field...

Georgia 92, Winthrop 86

Gerald Robinson scored 22 points and fellow guard Dustin Ware 20 points, and they hit clutch free throws and field goals to lead Georgia over Winthrop 92-86 in overtime Tuesday night. Winthrop (4-9) led the final 2 1/2 minutes of regulation, but after Ware's 3-pointer with 9.6 seconds to go, Robinson went coast-to-coast for a layup with 2.4 seconds remaining to tie the game...

VIDEO: Aaron Murray, '...We Fought Hard' This Season

There are more than a few who feel that Georgia could come out on the wrong side of this game, but I personally feel the loss to LSU left a bad enough taste in their mouths that they won't be coming into this match-up flat or disinterested. Murray will need to keep his head about him and not allow the excitement of playing in his home city of Tampa force him into unnecessary...
