Checking in on the Georgia Bulldogs

ATHENS, Ga. -- I'll be spending most of the next two days in Athens checking in on Georgia's football team.

The Bulldogs open spring practice on Thursday, and I look forward to catching up with coach Mark Richt as well as first-year defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. This obviously is a huge spring for the entire program, particularly on defense with all of the new coaches and the switch to the 3-4.

I'd say there are a few Georgia fans out there who would also like to know who's going to be the starting quarterback next season.

Check back later Wednesday and again on Thursday, and I'll have several updates from the Bulldogs' camp as they point toward what should be a wide open race in the Eastern Division in 2010.
