Spotlight on Fox

with 3 comments

It appears that CMF and his upset-minded Georgia Bulldogs have caught the attention of a few of ESPN’s more prominent basketball analysts.

Dick Vitale, also known as “Dicky V” in the college basketball world, awarded Fox with his  Co-Coach of the Week award (sharing it with Arizona State’s Herb Sendek).

Fox also got a “shout out” from ESPN college basketball analyst Andy Katz in his “Weekly Watch” edition (check it out here – middle of the page under Coaching Props To…).

CBS Sportsline now has the Dawgs at #89 on its RPI ranking, which for Georgia is a tremendous improvement from prior seasons.  Hopefully UGA can continue to climb that ladder over the rest of the season.

One last note – I made reference to the difficulty of this year’s schedule in an earlier blog and CBS apparently agrees, ranking the Dawgs’ strength of schedule (SOS) at #34 in the country!

  1. Fox has us on the right track … this game with Ole Miss will be HUGE. Its a chance for another win over a ranked team, but if we lose we are 0-2 with a couple road games up next.

  2. Spot on DD.

    We do not want to lose this one with a date @ Miss St looming on Saturday…The Dawgs have not had much success against Mr. Jarvis Vernardo.

    • I think the over/under for blocks by Vernardo in that game is 8.5
