Georgia coach Mark Richt says offensive tackle Kolton Houston is still ineligible because he continues to test positive for a banned performance-enhancing substance he was given for a shoulder surgery more than two years ago. Houston was Georgia's No. 1 right tackle at the end of spring practice. Richt says Georgia, which opens practice on Thursday, must prepare to be without the third-year sophomore. Richt says Georgia's medical staff hopes the substance, 19-norandrosterone, will eventually leave Houston's system. Documents released Thursday by Georgia included an email received Tuesday from NCAA president Mark Emmert, who denied Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity's request for a special exemption for Houston. Richt said Georgia's staff is ''100-percent certain'' Houston ''has not continued to take this thing.'' Houston can practice with the team.

Georgia Recruiting: Does 2013 WR Marquez North Favor the Dawgs?

Marquez North hasn’t made his college decision just yet, but with the depth chart at Georgia looking pretty thin at wide receiver, the addition of North to the 2013 class would be a good one. At 6’4″, 200+ pounds, North offers good size to go with his above-average speed (4.4) and playmaking ability; and despite his lanky frame, he has as much ability to play physical at the...

VIDEO Flashback: The Georgia Bulldogs Take on Alabama in a Classic SEC Battle

(h/t carlmilton) I love vintage videos like this one—the Larry Munson factor alone makes it worthy of my time. Said Munson at the time: “…this was a championship team, Alabama was supposed to be the team that we had to beat that year—at least as far as the conference was concerned—and we did. I remember the game was played at  our place. And I also remember that particular...
