Buck Belue, he of “give-it-to-Herschel-and-we-can-win-a-championship” fame, has a little advice for Aaron Murray this season. …If protection breaks down, wrap it up and go down. Don’t try to fit it in tight windows. Scramble, but protect the ball, on the run. Turning it over a bunch just doesn’t make good sense this season. The Bulldogs’ defense will be forcing a lot of “three and outs.” Grantham will be turning up the heat. So, they should be forcing some turnovers, right?

Georgia Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt has been on the hot seat for the last few years because, well, it’s the SEC and finishing anywhere other than at the top is unacceptable even if it is unreasonable. The hot seat talk settled down after Georgia took the SEC East last season and played LSU in the SEC Championship game.
Georgia has since decided that this is good enough for...
The chatter has already begun.
On internet message boards and at coffee shop counters from the foothills of Appalachia to the blackwater swamps of the Suwannee, Georgia Bulldog fans have begun their ritual song of summer. It's an upbeat little ditty with lyrics that fall somewhere between eternal optimism and a painful, uncomfortable, unhealthy obsession.
For it is during these...
Mark Richt Gets Contract ApprovalDo you Remember last summer when all those coaches on the hot seat lists were coming out? Who was always on top of that list? None other than Georgia head coach Mark Richt. What a difference a year makes. The University of Georgia Athletic Association’s executive board unanimously approved Richt’s new contract. The new deal will give the coach...
