Mark Richt's Hot Seat: Um, About That's Bill Connelly revisits the storylines we were totally convinced of following Week 1, including a certain fan base's furious disdain for a certain coach:

Storyline: Mark Richt's team is once again unready for prime time; this season is going to be a disappointment, and he is going to be fired.

The Verdict: The loud assumptions of Richt's mortality grew when the Bulldogs lost to South Carolina the next week, but the Dawgs have taken full advantage of a weaker SEC schedule and a severely flawed SEC East; they have won six games in a row, sometimes in impressive fashion, sometimes less so, and are tied atop the East with Carolina. The banged-up Gamecocks hold the tie-breaker but must beat Arkansas and Florida to take the title. Georgia, meanwhile, gets Auburn and Kentucky, both at home. Georgia may still have some issues, but they may also have ten wins when the season is over.
