ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia's longest losing streak in 20 years
has coach Mark Richt searching for answers.
The Bulldogs are scuffling to get their first Southeastern
Conference victory -- and so is Tennessee.
The Volunteers are in their first season under coach Derek
Dooley, son of longtime Georgia coach Vince Dooley.
Georgia's program has hit the crossroads of mediocrity with a
.500 record over its last 18 games. Even worse, the Bulldogs have
dropped seven of nine in the Southeastern Conference.
Time to change the routine.
For the first time in his 10 seasons at Georgia, Richt had the
players in full pads on a Monday following a game. The Bulldogs
blocked and tackled. First-team offense against first-team defense,
just like in the spring.
