Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Georgia at SEC basketball Media Days

Thursday October 22, 2009

Mark Fox and Andy Landers were in front of the SEC media this morning, and each offered his outlook on the upcoming season.

Fox talked about the resources available to an SEC program as well as the difficulties of installing his triangle offense with “a group that needs some more offense and that needs to work on controlling the ball better.” He mentioned the motivation that comes from a team looking for a fresh start. “We are not having to fight the battle to get these players motivated,” he added.

Landers focused on the challenges of meshing seven newcomers with a small group of veterans. “How well we do in the season really depends on how well we mix the young and the old.” Fortunately a solid recruiting class should help things. “Our freshmen look a lot better than what your typical freshmen usually look like so that is very encouraging,” Landers explained. Though the media picked Georgia to finish third this year, Landers sees six teams with the possibility of winning the SEC because of the “absence of a great player (in the league) this season.”

UPDATE: Mark Fox’s debut impressed ESPN’s Pat Forde. “Phenomenal,” he posted to Twitter. “Dawgs made the biggest upgrade in nation in media terms.”
