  • Right on schedule: Georgia is SEC Champions

    ATLANTA – Two years ago in a building that’s now in ruins, Kirby Smart was the center of the Bulldog universe.

    While Alabama was getting set to win another SEC Championship, Nick Saban’s defensive coordinator was set to become the next head coach of the University of Georgia.

    It was the worst kept secret in the state. All that was left was for the Crimson Tide to finish their season, which they did in spectacular fashion.

    Less than 24 hours after it was over Kirby was to be anointed king of Bulldog Nation.

    Two years later, Smart has bestowed upon his subject the riches [More]

  • Smart leaves Tech with no option and reclaims state title

    ATLANTA – The last period of practice every Monday all season long was the Tech period.

    It had nothing to do with the current game, but everything to do with the last one.

    Kirby Smart was making sure what happened last year would not happen again.

    “Oh my God,” said linebacker Natrez Patrick, when asked about getting ready for the Jackets triple option. “Just those cut blocks and the way you have to grind through practice. It’s a struggle.”

    This coming from the coach who constantly preaches that every game is the same, every opponent is the same. Don’t look forward and don’t look [More]

  • Georgia’s seniors get the send off they deserve

    ATHENS – It’s a picture that, if anyone actually sells it, will make a killing.

    The four seniors who stayed, with the postgame hoopla of a 42-13 blowout swirling around them, pulled over to have someone capture the moment.

    No one would have blamed Nick Chubb and Sony Michel for taking the NFL’s money. Running backs live short lives. College running back is a pretty tough way to earn a scholarship.

    Lorenzo Carter and Davin Bellamy had to consider if another uncertain season was the best move. Because guys who hit NFL quarterbacks have nice houses too.

    This was one of the moments they [More]

    AUBURN, Ala – Humility is no longer a week away.

    If you’ve heard any of UGA coach Kirby Smart’s press conferences, you’ve no doubt heard that line and that lesson for his players.

    It’s a good one. And for the nation’s number one team, the humbling has arrived.

    “The lesson was learned that they got a good football team,” Smart told the UGA radio network after Saturday’s stomping in Auburn. “They whipped us up front, they whipped us on the back end, they whipped on us the edges.”

    Or more simply.

    “It was a total butt whippin’,” said Smart.

    Yup. That’s the only appropriate verb for: [More]

  • NASA's latest nail-biting drama was far from orbit as the Senate narrowly confirmed President Donald Trump's choice of a tea party congressman to run the space agency in an unprecedented party-line vote. In a 50-49 vote Thursday, Oklahoma Rep. James Bridenstine, a Navy Reserve pilot, was confirmed as NASA's 13th administrator, an agency that usually is kept away from partisanship. His three predecessors — two nominated by Republicans — were all approved unanimously. Before that, one NASA chief served under three presidents, two Republicans and a Democrat. The two days of voting were as tense as a launch countdown. A procedural vote Wednesday initially ended in a 49-49 tie — Vice President Mike Pence, who normally breaks a tie, was at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida — before Arizona Republican Jeff Flake switched from opposition to support, using his vote as leverage to address an unrelated issue. Thursday's vote included the drama of another delayed but approving vote by Flake, a last-minute no vote by Illinois Democrat Tammy Duckworth — who wheeled onto the floor with her 10-day-old baby in tow — and the possibility of a tie-breaker by Pence, who was back in town. NASA is a couple years away from launching a new giant rocket and crew capsule to replace the space shuttle fleet that was retired in 2011. 'I look forward to working with the outstanding team at NASA to achieve the president's vision for American leadership in space,' Bridenstine said in a NASA release after the vote. Democrats opposing Bridenstine said his outspoken divisiveness, earlier rejection of mainstream climate change science and lack of space experience made him unqualified. Republicans praised him as a qualified war hero. 'His record of behavior in the Congress is as divisive as any in Washington, including his attacks on members of this body from his own party,' Florida Democrat Bill Nelson said. 'It's hard to see how that record will endear, and by extension NASA, him to Congress, and most importantly, endear him to the American people. ' Sen. Edward Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, cited past Bridenstine comments that rejected mainstream climate science, invoking the movie 'Apollo 13.' 'Houston, we have a problem,' Markey said. 'NASA's science, NASA's mission and American leadership will be in jeopardy under Congressman Bridenstine's leadership.' During his confirmation hearing, Bridenstine said he acknowledges that global warming is real and man-made, but wouldn't say that it was mostly human-caused, as the overwhelming majority of scientists and scientific literature do. And Bridenstine told Nelson, 'I want to make sure that NASA remains, as you said, apolitical.' Texas Republican Ted Cruz praised the NASA nominee as 'a war hero.' 'NASA needs a strong leader and it will have that strong leader in Jim Bridenstine,' Cruz said. Sean O'Keefe, who was NASA chief under President George W. Bush and was confirmed unanimously, said the close vote 'is a consequence of an erosion of comity in the Congress, particularly in the Senate. Political fights will always break out, but now most policy choices are more likely to emerge based on the party with the majority than the power of the idea.' Alan Ladwig, a top NASA political appointee under Democrats, said this was a case of both party politics and a divisive nominee who doesn't accept science. __ Associated Press writers Mary Claire Jalonick and Lisa Mascaro contributed to this report. ___ Follow Seth Borenstein on Twitter at @borenbears .

  • Kirby Smart has called for fans to fill Sanford Stadium on Sunday for the annual G-day game.
  • The Justice Department has agreed to provide Congress with copies of several memos written by former FBI Director James Comey. That's according to a person familiar with the agreement. The person declined to be named because the documents had not yet been sent to Congress. The move comes as House Republicans threatened to subpoena the documents and criticized department officials. Comey revealed last year that he had written the memos after conversations with President Donald Trump, who later fired him. Justice officials had allowed some lawmakers to view the memos, but had never provided copies to Congress. Last week, three House chairmen demanded the memos by Monday. The Justice Department asked for more time, and the lawmakers agreed.
