His teams have blown its two chances to make a statement since landing in the Top 25 three weeks ago, sliding to fifth place in the SEC East.
As Lynn Jarrett stepped into her office, she sat down in a chair and let out a sigh. Her Lady Spartans had just given the third-ranked team in Class AAA all it could handle, and for a program that is going through some tough times, remaining competitive with the best is almost as good as a win.

Gainesville High School, like a lot of top high school teams around the country, has a very loyal alumni fan base.
Georgia and Georgia Tech treated everyone to A Tale of Four Teams Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
