Weekly Whatup, 1/1

In this special New Year's edition of the Weekly Whatup (and the last installment – we're working on coming up with a better title… no offense, Chad) I thought it would be nice to take a look at the year that was and maybe even speculate a little about the fresh new set of 365 that is in front of the Eagle Nation.

UGA offense to get boost with Green's return

SHREVEPORT, La. - Georgia's offense showed down the stretch it could still make plays even with its biggest playmaker sidelined, especially in its upset of top-10 Georgia Tech.Now Georgia is blending receiver A.J. Green back into its mix for Monday's Independence Bowl. He's rejoining an offense that averaged a robust 235 rushing yards in its last three games."We're glad he's back because even if he doesn't get eight balls for 160 yards, he's one of those guys where his presence kind of makes people gameplan towards him," quarterback Joe Cox said ...

Colts have difficult personnel decisions to make

INDIANAPOLIS - Peyton Manning and his teammates won't even lobby Colts coach Jim Caldwell to play the final two regular-season games.If Caldwell tells them go for the perfect season, they will bring the same approach that helped them become the NFL's third 14-0 team.

Vick still a devisive topic

PHILADELPHIA - The road back will never be completely clear for Michael Vick.There's plenty of justice in that.Little more than two years have elapsed since he plead guilty to being the ringleader of a dogfighting operation where extreme cruelty was the stock in trade. There's no defending what he did then and there's no chance it will ever be forgotten.That chapter of his life remains part of nearly every story involving his name and it will be somewhere in the opening paragraph of his obit. What remains to be seen is whether it will take ...
