The Grantham lobby, everywhere but on the field

As they head into the SEC finale, a good overview of the defense here by Weiszer. Players defending their coach, stats compared with history, quotes from just before Coach Willie got the ax...

And while Richt doesn't want to get crazy with statistics, I just look at one chart.

Strange 6-4 season when you've beaten the teams at 2, 3 and 4. With a game left against Kentucky and Mizzou having to play Johnny Football's Aggies, there's a decent chance of Georgia finishing top eight. But that would take a better than good effort against Tech in the season finale, a team known to get their yards in mass chunks.

Regardless, there's soon to be some serious evaluation going on in Butts-Mehre. It was easy to blame inexperience early in the season. But 10 games against the 2013 schedule no longer a freshman makes. So can the walk match the talk this weekend and next?
