9-3, 2nd in SEC - East

David Ching ESPN Staff Writer 

At roughly the same time as news broke about Kirby Smart replacing Mark Richt as Georgia's coach, UGA hoops coach Mark Fox spoke passionately about his former colleague following Tuesday's win over Oakland. Fox and Richt developed a close friendship while traveling together in recent years to Georgia's summertime booster club tour dates. "College athletics, everybody around it, is littered with fraudulent and counterfeit people, and you guys know it, and Mark Richt was neither of those," Fox said. Smart will face a major challenge to win as frequently as Richt did, but it will be next to impossible to lead the Georgia program with the same level of integrity. Fox's heartfelt words on Tuesday made that perfectly clear.

The Saban tree just keeps expanding with Kirby Smart and Georgia. Not shocked by the decision but going the assistant route is risky for a program that just fired a winner. Figured Georgia would have considered established head coaches more. Smart is certainly familiar with the program but head-coaching experience is important

Greg Ostendorf ESPN Staff Writer 

If the Kirby Smart deal goes through and assuming both coaches are still there, Nick Saban (Alabama) and Smart (Georgia) would first meet in 2020. Obviously, the two could see each other sooner in the SEC championship game.
