Not a great week for Georgia Bulldogs fans, with the super media hype after the opening win over Clemson turning negative. Even Rolling Stone, which normally doesn’t cover sports, jumped on the pile, declaring Mark Richt the Charlie Brown of college football! So, let’s open this week’s fan talk on a couple of positive notes: Georgia plays football again Saturday in Athens (noon kickoff against the Trojans from, where else, Troy) and someone thinks UGA has the best home uniforms.
