Leadoff: Will 78,000 seats be enough for Georgia’s G-Day game this time?

Sanford Stadium’s seating capacity will be temporarily reduced to about 78,000 for Saturday’s G-Day game because of ongoing construction that will close nine sections of west end-zone seats for the day, according to UGA executive associate athletic director Josh Brooks.  That still sounds like ample capacity for a spring-football intra-squad game, right?  Even if it is well...

Alabama’s Saban admits beating Georgia will be very difficult

Nick Saban started slowly and then picked up steam in his comments about Kirby Smart during the national championship teleconference on Tuesday.

Since then, Fromm has...
