Note from @BernieDawg – **quick note – next week’s transcript will be later than usual due to both tricks and

You can call in to the AT&T Bulldog Hotline number at 1-888-81-DAWGS (1-888-813-
2947). And now you can send in your question for Coach Richt via their FB page https:/
/www.facebook.com/georgiabulldogs or via the official UGA Twitter page http://
twitter.com/ugaathleticss using the hashtag #BulldogHotline. Georgia gets healthy
during its bye week and gets ready for the annual trip down to Jacksonville. With a

with his latest prediction: (with no personal fouls on Saturday and a good game in the
red zone) we beat Florida, then SC loses two more games (one to Arkansas and one to
Florida), we win the East and CMR is named SEC Coach of the Year. Then we sign him
to a 10 year contract at 30 million a year. Richt – (laughs) “God Bless America” and says
he is a big Mike fan.
Lance from Uvalda says CMR is the first coach since Dooley to beat the Gators at least
