Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Road Tour begins tonight in Roswell

Wednesday April 22, 2009

Football’s rubber chicken circuit gets underway this evening with the first of nine stops on the Bulldog Club Road Tour. Roswell will host the first meeting at the Atlanta Athletic Club in John’s Creek (program begins at 7:00, free admission), and the tour headlined by football coach Mark Richt will continue through April and May before the final Atlanta meeting in July.

The bad news is that Coach Fox won’t be attending the Roswell meeting. I was personally looking forward to my first chance to meet the new coach, but there’s something much more important on his plate. The spring signing period is still ongoing, and the current contact period runs through today. The good news is that Fox is scheduled to attend the rest of the Road Tour stops starting with tomorrow night’s visit to Greenville, and there will be plenty of other opportunities for fans interested in meeting the new basketball coach.

You can’t blame Fox for making the most of every hour allowed by the recruiting calendar. He was already under the gun to find some late additions to the 2009 class, and the release of Daniel Miller opens up another scholarship.

  • Groo, have you heard the reason behind Miller wanting his LOI release? Figure it was a/b playing/starting time. Just hoping he wasn’t discouraged by the hire of Coach Fox. I’d think most of our players would be excited a/b this hire.

  • Ally, though the release said it was Miller’s decision, I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that we encouraged him to look elsewhere. If playing time were a concern, he just signed on with Tech who has just as much, if not more, frontcourt talent than Georgia even if Lawal gets drafted.

  • So true. I just hate it turned out this way. From everything I’ve read he ws a big fan of UGA and was excited to play for the red & black.

    Of all places to transfer. Ugh. Thanks for the info!
