HOOVER, Ala. – Over the past three days, 24 players, eight coaches and six administrators have taken their turns on the podiums in the grand ballroom at the Hyatt Regency Wynfrey Hotel. On Thursday morning we’ll finally get to hear from coach Mark Richt and the Georgia Bulldogs.
Georgia is the 11th of the SEC’s 14 teams to stand before the microphones and cameras at SEC Football Media Days. Richt will be accompanied by wide receiver Chris Conley, linebacker Ramik Wilson and tailback Todd Gurley.

ATHENS – Thanks to a grand-slam-highlighted, series-clinching win over No. 7 South Carolina on Sunday, the Georgia baseball team is in position to make it back into the SEC Tournament. But there remains work to be done.
Daniel Nichols hit a grand-slam home run on Sunday to power the Bulldogs to a 5-3 win over the Gamecocks on Sunday. It game Georgia its first series win over South Carolina since 2008.
More importantly, the victory moves the Bulldogs (23-23-1, 9-14-1 SEC) into 12th place overall in the conference. The top 12 teams in the 14-team league (based on winning percentage in league [More]

Atlanta Journal-Constitution recruiting reporter Michael Carvell talked to Georgia basketball coach Mark Fox on Monday for some recruiting stories he’s working on. But while he had him on the phone he asked him about tonight’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship game between Kentucky and UConn.
Shockingly, Fox likes the SEC’s Wildcat’s in that game.
“I’ve got my SEC pom poms on,” Fox said. “I’m sticking with the SEC.”
“I actually told our team when Kentucky beat us in the (SEC tournament) semifinals,‘If they shoot the 3 well and they play like that, they can win the national championship.’ It really comes down to if [More]

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.
The Bulldogs survived another thriller against Ole Miss in the quarterfinals of the SEC tournament late last night. Charles Mann made a lay-up off an offensive rebound with 17 seconds remaining, the Rebels’ Marshall Henderson missed the 14th of his 16 3-point attempts with about 5 seconds remaining and Marcus Thornton made a final free throw with 3.9 seconds to go as Georgia held on for a gritty [More]

As coaches go, Georgia’s Mark Fox is a pretty mild-mannered guy. When it comes to commentary about his team and basketball issues, he usually takes a reserved and measured approach and leaves you thinking it probably feels a little stronger than he lets on.
But it was a considerably more feisty Fox that reporters encountered Wednesday afternoon as the Bulldogs had their first and only interview availability before their Friday night appearance in the quarterfinals of the SEC tournament.
Fox was relatively outspoken on a myriad of topics, not the least of which was his team’s NCAA tournament at-large chances. The general [More]

ATHENS – Ever since Georgia’s 71-56 win over Missouri on Tuesday night, I’ve had a lot of people asking if I thought the Bulldogs had a chance to get into the NCAA Tournament. They do, but it’s the longest of long shots.
Georgia is 16-11 overall and 10-5 in the SEC with three regular-season games and the SEC Tournament left to play. In my opinion, there is a chance the Bulldogs could land an at-large selection if they win out and reach the finals of the SEC Tournament, which is in Atlanta this year. That will mean they will have beaten [More]
