Once-Marquee SEC Matchup Now Just an Afterthought

Athens, GA (AP) - This used to be one of those signature games
on the Southeastern Conference schedule.
Now, outside of Derek Dooley facing the team his dad once
coached, there's nothing more intriguing about Tennessee vs.
Georgia than which team will finally get its first SEC win
Saturday.
The Volunteers (2-3, 0-2 SEC) are coming off a disheartening
loss at LSU after time expired and are clearly in a rebuilding mode
under first-year coach Dooley.
As for Georgia (1-4, 0-3), a team that thought it could contend
in the SEC East is mired in a four-game losing streak -- its longest
in two decades -- and the worst conference start since 1993. As the
losses have mounted, so has the pressure on Georgia's Mark Richt,
the dean of SEC coaches.
