HOOVER, Ala.  - All things considered, Mark Richt has overseen an extremely successful decade at Georgia.
But big-time college football has a short memory. And Richt's 14-13 record over the past two seasons - including a 6-7 mark last year - has put him squarely on the hot seat in Athens.
Even so, Richt says there's "no sense of doom and gloom, there's only a sense of excitement" as the Bulldogs prepare for the season. Georgia is expected to compete for the SEC Eastern Division title now that sophomore quarterback Aaron Murray has a year of experience and seven defensive starters return.
The Bulldogs will get a few big tests early in the season, playing Boise State in the season opener and South Carolina in the SEC opener.

If he would just take over the plan calling from BoBo the clown I believe we would be fine.
