    Georgia loses to George Washington which again hurts our conference. I remember when I posted here a few years ago that this was a good hire, but I was wrong! He just can't recruit and that blows my mind. His name should be on the hot seat as well as a few others in the conference.

    Can't recall when Georgia was last relevant in basketball.

    Yeah, Georgia needs to decide to become relevant. They have money to burn. No reason they shouldn't be able to build a new arena and get a decent coach…..other than they don't give a damn about basketball.

    Probably when they had the Hayes brothers. Roberson beat them at the buzzer in the Odome.

    GW isn't a bad team and they might make some noise this year, but I agree that Georgia needs to win that game. Seems like the SEC has had a few "bad losses" in OOC, just like the previous few years.

    I was going to say this. GW has a pretty good program, and frequently shows up in the NCAA tournament. They'd be competitive in the SEC most years (granted, that's not saying much).

    Unless there's significant win/loss improvement at UGA this season, I doubt Fox will be back.

    Georgia is a bad team this year (again), but dropping a game on the road against a much better GW team is an expected loss, not a bad one. Agree that Fox's failure to successfully recruit in Georgia (it's become a pattern at UGa) will almost certainly cost him his job this year.

    Losing to GW is not a bad loss. They have an RPI around 25 depending on who you like and have only lost to Kansas & Marquette. Most likely a tourney team this year. On the other hand, any loss by Georgia is a good loss from my point of view:)

    Unfortunately, for the last decade or so, Georgia has been a place where B-ball coaches go to die. It doesn't seem to matter if they can coach or not. Of course, having very lousy support for their hoops program in general, is the other major factor.

    Much like Florida before Foley. Although, there were the Norm Sloan years, so perhaps Georgia is worse than Florida in wearing blinders.

    i know many gator fans and sports fan alike are not big fans of colin cowherd, but im reading his book right now, and just finished the section where he discusses college basketball in comparison to college football. he discusses how so few schools depend on basketball for their athletic budgets that it just makes more sense for them to dump all their money into football, he specifically cited UGA when referencing this situation. also discussed how bball coaches stay tenured longer at these types of schools because no one really cares at all. it makes sense.
