| While Richt has a score
of receivers to feed his offense, he doesn't have a trigger man to run the show.
Phillips was supposed to take over from Quincy Carter but he didn't have a
promising spring. It is troublesome because Phillips is the only QB with experience
in Athens. Perhaps redshirt freshman David Greene will step up.
WR's Terrance Edwards, Damien Gary, Reggie Brown and Durell Robinson will catch the ball if Richt can find someone to deliver it to them.
The Bulldogs have beef up front on the offensive line in the form of All-SEC candidates center Curt McGill, guard Kevin Breedlove and tackle Jon Stinchcomb. Tight end Randy McMichael is highly capable of hauling in the passes. The situation at RB is discouraging. Jasper Sanks and Musa Smith have been unsteady.
Georgia has had four defensive coordinators in four years with the addition of Brian Van Gorder. UGA lost a couple of NFL first-rounds picks in the defensive line and David Jacobs and Johnathan Sullivan must fill the void. Boss Bailey returns at linebacker after knee surgery and the LB corps looks to shine. The secondary also has talent in the form of CB Tim Wansley.
The challenge for the new coaching staff is the same that each coach since Dooley has faced. How to survive in the wicked SEC East against perennial powers Florida and Tennessee? It doesn't help that South Carolina is putting heat on the Dawgs for 3rd place. Add struggles with Auburn and Georgia Tech and it isn't hard to see why UGA has yet to break through to the next level despite excellent facilities and loyal fans.
