Murphy: It's going to be a long offseason for Georgia fans

It's a hopeless feeling to be a University of Georgia football fan these days. Things are bad, and by the tone of coach Mark Richt during his end-of-season press conference, I find it hard to believe things are going to get better any time soon.

Murphy: The pros and cons of the play-in

I'd really like to hear from the fans as to where they stand on this region play-in format for high school football in Region 8-AAA and 8-AA now that we're almost done with the regular season. Personally, I still can't decide where I come down on the issue.
