Could Mark Richt's tenure at Georgia be coming to an end? Talks about his status began to heat up with the Dawgs' lopsided loss to Florida on Saturday, and now some influential people around the UGA program may want a change. It is very premature, but if Richt was shown the door, could UGA poach a big name like Florida State's Jimbo Fisher? USA Today's Dan Wolken thinks the 2013 national championship coach would listen:
">@DanWolken on Jimbo Fisher as a fit for a potential opening at Georgia.

"I think he certainly would be interested" @DanWolken on Jimbo Fisher as a fit for a potential opening at Georgia.

That hypothetical decision would be a tough one for Fisher. On one hand, Florida State is in a great position in the ACC, has fantastic recruiting grounds, and he's proven he can win in Tallahassee. On the other, Georgia has fantastic resources and strong recruiting itself, and Fisher has had to deal with a lot of issues at Florida State. Sports Illustrated college football writer Andy Staples thinks that Georgia is the best jobin the sport. There's a chance that the FSU job is wearing on him. It is very hard to know, but Wolken's comment is something to think about.
