ATHENS – The University of Georgia on Wednesday announced a two-year contract extension for men’s basketball coach Mark Fox. That means it will expire at the end of the 2017-18 season.

Greetings from the Georgia Dome, where I have spent most of my waking existence the past few days. Not complaining. It has been exciting, and the Georgia Bulldogs are certainly having a blast.

That gave the Eagles a 2-1 victory in the season-opening, three-game series and disappointed a goodly crowd of people who came out to welcome in the new era, Stricklin among them.
