He also happens to be Georgia's president, where he is so well-loved that even the mild-mannered law-talkin' bloggers give him the same nickname as Mussolini. The crankier ones less given to Faulkerian sentences just call him "a big fat liar" and "hypocrite." These assertions aren't just internet crackpottery. They've been backed up by by hoity-toity accounting firm Deloitte and Touche. . . . Adams is one of the leading candidates to replace deceased NCAA president Myles Brand. Say what you want about Brand, but he at least seemed earnest. His major project was an academic reform push that seems at least marginally effective at publicizing and punishing schools that don't make a good faith effort at graduating 60 percent of their players. There aren't legions of incensed Indiana bloggers who spit before saying his name. There isn't a 50-page audit alleging massive financial improprieties with his name on it. At no point did 70 percent of the faculty give him a vote of no confidence. It seems like literally everyone with a stake in UGA gets that sign above without having to think about it, so what possible reason could there be to put him in charge of the NCAA?

Opposition to Michael Adams outside of Bulldog Nation is starting to pick up steam. As an extra added bonus, this is unquestionably the nicest thing Brian Cook has ever written about me! Go 'Dawgs!

3. Mark Richt Richt has had one bad season in nearly a decade at Georgia. The Bulldogs continue to collect talent — nearly 20 players have been good enough to leave early for the NFL this decade. That said, Richt had better have a good season in 2010. As the dean of SEC coaches, he’s becoming stale in Athens and fans are starting to wonder if someone else might be able to do a Saban-like number on Georgia. (The fear should be that someone might do a Kiffin-like number on Georgia.) If Todd Grantham is the answer at defensive coordinator, the Bulldogs could return to previous form. Mr. SEC says Mark Richt is the league's third-best coach, behind only Nick Saban and Urban Meyer. (Hat tip: Leather Helmet Blog.) In the what-have-you-done-for-me-lately world of the Southeastern Conference, though, third place doesn't come without a few criticisms.

You know, if Georgia doesn't blow that game to Kentucky, they would have ended the season winning six of seven, with the only loss being to Florida. If that had happened, I think most fans would be downright giddy about the future. And since that UK loss was really nothing more than a few fluke plays in a game the Bulldogs otherwise dominated, I'd suggest that fans still head into 2010 with a good bit of enthusiasm and excitement. There's just enough coming back that the Dawgs could be very dangerous, and just enough questions that this should be an interesting offseason. I'm looking forward to it.

How can I be The Man when David Hale is The Man? (Please note that another reporter mistook Clemson for an SEC team, so, apparently, it's not just me.)

We just forgot our pants. Nothing against the team or anything like that. I apologize to the team ... I'm kind of mad we missed a good meal, a free meal at that.

All right, I may be taking Terrelle Pryor's comments a little bit out of context there . . . I mean, it's not like he's Pat Dye or anything!

I think Georgia wins this one by ten. I am worried we will play them tough, but we'll be trailing by a field goal late in the game and they'll tack on one more score to win it by double-digits.

Unfortunately for UGA, they just couldn't piece them all together in the right way to maximize the talent at hand. I don't know enough about the internals of the program to list out the causes for sure, but usually that's a sign of bad coaching. Whatever the staff there had been doing for success earlier this decade has gone stale. It's a Sunday-through-Friday problem that's plaguing Georgia, and dressing up like Southern Miss for a day wasn't going to solve it.

A fair criticism from a reasonable Florida fan

The Bulldogs were feeling really bad after last week's bludgeoning at the hands of Tennessee. Vandy turned out to be just what the doctor ordered. UGA cruised to a 34-10 win where it came out comfortably ahead in just about all statistical categories. This one wasn't really about the score or stats though, as beating up on a team that lost to Army means very little. The key thing was getting a nice, easy win to rebuild confidence going into the bye week to help preparations for a suddenly very vulnerable looking Florida team.

I don't know what game Year2 was watching, but I thank him for his support, even if he is just boosting the Bulldogs to the benefit of his own team

The losses to Oklahoma State and LSU were unsettling, but understandable against two of the most highly-touted outfits in the country; survival in the fourth quarter against South Carolina, Arkansas and Arizona State was proof that this team "knew how to win" or something. Tennessee, however, a lopsided loss to a mediocre, one-dimensional team on the brink of collapse itself after an 0-2 SEC start, was definitive proof that the Bulldogs don't really know how to do anything.
