Iona vs. Georgia: Fox says Bulldogs have 'gotten a lot of work done'

The Bulldogs are looking to turn their fortunes around on Saturday against Iona at home.

The Georgia Bulldogs are certainly not off to the start they were hoping for.

Only eight games into the season, Georgia is 2-6 and sitting in the basement of the SEC. However, the team has had time to regroup recently with an 11-day stretch between games. The Bulldogs play the Iona Gaels on Saturday in the Stegeman Coliseum and hope that the break will have served them well says head coach Mark Fox, according to

"We’ve gotten a lot of work done. We’ve had very long and hard practices. I’ve tried to address some things we know we’re deficient in."

Georgia has put a ton of time and effort into fixing an offense that has let it down for a majority of its young season. The Bulldogs haven't had any kind of a consistent offensive attack thus far, averaging only 56.8 points, good for 333rd in the nation.

"Our defense has given us a chance to win, but our offensive production has not been where it needs to be," Fox said, "We’ve got to get better on that end so we’ve worked quite a bit on that."

Despite the way things have started, Georgia still can right the ship before it begins SEC play against the Florida Gators on Jan. 9. Including Saturday's game, the Bulldogs have five games before that showdown, all at home.
