One of these years, Georgia is finally going to find a way to put it all together. It just might have to require a change in head coaches, though.

Georgia badly wants a rematch with Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, but the Bulldogs have tended to lose focus at times during the regular season under Mark Richt’s watch.
