It seems that Mark Richt's breakfast on the west coast has everyone up in arms regarding his intentions. As the story goes, Richt headed for the airport following Georgia's win over Auburn Saturday and departed on an already planned trip. His intended destination was Washington state and a visit with UGA's top quarterback recruit Jacob Eason. The coach, Eason and Eason's Dad had breakfast together and then spent the remainder of Richt's visit hanging out together. You see, Coach Richt is allowed this unusual visit with a recruit because this particular player has already signed his financial aid papers with the University of Georgia.This gives the Bulldog coaches unlimited contact with Eason. So, why did Richt take a cross-country, in-season recruiting trip? He did it to try and make sure Jacob Eason enrolls at the University of Georgia in January 2016 as planned. Plain and simple. No ulterior motives. Jacob Eason is that important to the future success of the Georgia Bulldogs. Richt just tried to calm the seas among the recent rumored staff turmoil and assure the high school star that Athens, Georgia is where he indeed needs to be to play his college football. A very important recruiting trip. No more - no less.

As a Georgia fan, I believe the Bulldogs should stop scheduling games with Georgia Southern University. Think about it: Georgia has absolutely nothing to gain by playing Georgia Southern. If Georgia wins, it's no big deal because they were supposed to win. If Southern ever wins, Georgia will never hear the end of it. Not to mention the fact that a Southern win would then make the Eagles just like Georgia Tech to Bulldog fans: Hated. Georgia fans admire the Georgia Southern program primarily because of Erk Russell. Seeing the Eagles succeed is an extension of Erk's success.The two go hand-in-hand. There are also many Southern supporters who have always been fans of the Bulldogs. It sounds good to keep it that way. Besides, Georgia has more that enough rivals now. We certainly don't need another one. There's only so much hate to spread around.
