Welcome Back to the Classic City

Good morning, Athens, I love you. Oh my heart, we beat Florida and won at Tennessee in the same season and have dropped only one SEC contest eight games into a campaign that saw UGA start 0-2 overall and clearly…

Richt in The A

With Mettenberger Gone, Quarterbacks Must Step Up

Curious that Aaron Murray did not play in the first half of the G-Day Game, I had to ask myself: Is he already the season opener starter for the University of Georgia Bulldogs? That question was a presumed yes for…
