Your weekly lede about Mark Richt's hot seat is warm, yet certainly not hot. After beating Tennessee in Knoxville for the first time since 2005, Georgia's win streak is at four games. Richt's job security is akin to ice cubs in hot soup, but as your grandmother might say, a loss in Nashville and you'll still scald your tongue.
For his part, Richt is as even handed about Georgia's recent success - and the rise of an increasingly powerful defense - as he was about his job security during an 0-2 start.
"The more success you have and the more confidence you gain, you just feel better," Georgia coach Mark Richt said of the win streak. "But you can't feel like we're arrived anywhere. We really haven't done much other than put ourselves in position to do some special things. We've just got to keep fighting and grinding. But it is good that everybody is beginning to gain more and more confidence in what we're doing and in each other."
