Georgia has fired football coach Mark Richt, who took the program to its greatest heights since the heyday of Herschel Walker and Vince Dooley in the 1980s but last won an SEC title 10 years ago and never reached the national championship game. “Coach Richt and I met Sunday morning to discuss the status of […] - Full Story

ATLANTA | Whether you’re one or the other — you’re both right. Person A — thinks it’s time for somebody new to lead the Georgia football program. Person B — thinks Mark Richt is still the man for the job. You’re both right. Mark Richt is, at worst, the second-best football coach in school history, currently in […] - Full Story

Natrez Patrick’s first game against Georgia Tech included his first college start, his first sack as a Bulldog and a season-high four tackles. “I feel like I had a pretty good game,” Patrick said. “I feel like we all played good. We read our keys and the plays kind of came to us.” The 6-foot-3, […] - Full Story

Georgia players carried a “G” flag near midfield but outside linebacker Leonard Floyd ended up carrying it down near the end zone closest to the Georgia locker room. Floyd and Jordan Jenkins placed it in the ground near the end zone. “The idea came from watching the video last year of them destroying our hedges, […] - Full Story

ATLANTA | Georgia may have locked down the first shutout by any team against Georgia Tech since 1997 if not for Jake Ganus getting a little too excited about a third-down incompletion. The senior inside linebacker waved his arms signaling an incomplete on the sideline near Ricky Jeune after the third-and-seven play at the Georgia 47. […] - Full Story

Terry Godwin hauled in eight passes for 78 yards, and Greyson Lambert threw for over 200 yards. The offense struggled to finish drives, and the […] - Full Story

ATLANTA | Dominick Sanders didn’t want to talk about last year. Georgia’s sophomore safety didn’t want to bring up how Georgia’s defense gave up 399 yards rushing. He didn’t want to discuss Georgia Tech players ripping parts of Georgia’s hedges after the Yellow Jackets ripped out Georgia’s hearts with a 30-24 overtime victory in 2014. […] - Full Story

ATLANTA | At least Georgia can make the claim that it runs this state again. In a year where the Bulldogs won’t fly an SEC East championship banner and there will be no trip to the league title game, they closed out the regular season by beating archrival Georgia Tech 13-7 Saturday in Bobby Dodd […] - Full Story

Jordan Jenkins thought he knew what Georgia’s rivalry against Georgia Tech was all about after going up against the Yellow Jackets in 2012 and 2013. It turned out he didn’t truly. The Bulldogs won by a lopsided margin (42-10) and in a tight one (41-34 in overtime) before falling 30-24 in overtime last season. “You […] - Full Story

During his five years in a Georgia football uniform, Kanon Parkman had the good fortune to be on teams that went 5-0 against Georgia Tech. But had Parkman not been around, at least two of those games might have gone the other way. As a freshman in 1991, the Stone Mountain native kicked a 34-yard […] - Full Story

Georgia Tech offensive line vs. Georgia defensive front Some of Georgia Tech’s rushing numbers are eye-popping. There was 161 yards against Virginia Tech, 144 against Virginia and 71 against Clemson. This from a triple-option offense that led the nation in rushing last year at 342 yards per game. This is not that team. The Yellow […] - Full Story

Offense Edge: Georgia Tech Georgia scored 23, 20 and 27 points the last three games and that’s an uptick from where it was entering the month. It includes a punt return touchdown and an overtime touchdown. Isaiah McKenzie, who has two offensive touchdowns on runs the last two games, may not go due to a […] - Full Story

Knock Jackets down while they are wobbly Georgia coach Mark Richt said this week that Georgia Tech just as easily could be 8-3. Maybe it’s bad luck. It also could be a team that can’t finish games. Georgia needs to add to the Jackets’ misery if the game is in the balance. “It’s kind of […] - Full Story

Dropouts: Alex Collins. BERT (aka Bret Bielema) and company turned their game against Mississippi State into a Big 12 game, and there is no room for running backs in the Big 12 15. Brandon Allen, Arkansas (last week: NR): I know I am breaking rule No. 1 by putting a second quarterback on the SEC […] - Full Story

Preparing to defend Georgia Tech’s triple-option offense can present challenges for teams in a regular game week. Georgia at least has the luxury of having just gone up against Georgia Southern’s own option offense before facing the Yellow Jackets on Saturday. “I won’t say I like it,” Georgia cornerback Malkom Parrish said. “I don’t like […] - Full Story

Georgia has a wide range of options for its bowl destination. They aren’t expected to include a repeat trip to Charlotte.  Landing in sunny Orlando seems unlikely. Athletic director Greg McGarity said going to the Belk Bowl in North Carolina will be avoided under the SEC’s tie-ins and he thinks playing Louisville for the second […] - Full Story

Between spotlighting his visits to see three committed 2016 recruits in the last two weeks and talking about how much-hyped quarterback Jacob Eason will be in the mix for playing time after he arrives on campus, Mark Richt has shifted some focus to next season at Georgia. Whether the head coach will be back for […] - Full Story

Keith is a senior tailback for Georgia. Marcus […] - Full Story

Greyson Lambert is a novice when it comes to Georgia’s rivalry game with Georgia Tech, but there’s a chance he will have more starting experience at Bobby Dodd Stadium Saturday than the Yellow Jackets’ quarterback. Lambert played in Atlanta last season against Georgia Tech as Virginia’s starter. It wasn’t his best game. He was 19 […] - Full Story
