Albany - Another sign that the college football season is close at hand is the appearance of Georgia football coach Mark Richt in Albany.
Richt in town to give south Georgia fans his plan for defending the Southeastern Conference championship.
In five seasons, Mark Richt has become one of the top coaches in the Southeastern Conference and the nation with 52 wins and two SEC championships.
The so-called experts believe this year could be a struggle for the Bulldogs since they do not have a starting quarterback.
Georgia fans will find out in about a month who will be the successor to D.J. Shockley.
That battle will begin in about two weeks when the Bulldogs open fall camp and the head coach says he is ready for the season to start.
Mark Richt said "We are getting close to getting started now. Our players are running and lifting and throwing and our coaches are preparing. So, it is going good."
Mark Richt has a big decision to make on his starting quarterback this season. On Tuesday, one of the nation's top high school quarterbacks Logan Gray of Columbia Missouri committed to the Bulldogs.
