Questions loom for UGA in offseason

ATLANTA - Mark Richt's pursuit of a defensive coordinator is still on while the search for Georgia's next starting quarterback is on standby until spring practice.Richt's Bulldogs capped an 8-5 season with a 44-20 win over Texas A&M in Monday night's Independence Bowl. The win followed a 30-24 victory over then-No. 7 Georgia Tech to close the regular season.Georgia's streak of 13 consecutive season with eight or more wins is the longest in the nation, but that wasn't a point Richt celebrated on Thursday as he reviewed the season."People have a ...

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. If they're told to sit out or play sparingly, even if it means risking an undefeated record, they won't question it.That's how it works in the Indianapolis locker room, where players abide by a simple rule: Follow the leader."It's what we believe in," defensive captain Gary Brackett said ...

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 ...
