Listen to Richt’s Sunday Teleconference here.
After Alabama had what ESPN calls an “epic fall”, the lone two SEC teams with any legitimate shot at the BCS Championship Game are the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs–although it’s a long shot for both given their…

As far as where he stands with the Bulldogs, he continues to be one of the most outspoken members of the 2013 class—making sure he sells the program every bit as well as the coaches.

“I am not just trying to get kids to come to Georgia just because they are elite players,” Wiggins said. “I am trying to develop a relationship with them because we will not all play football forever.”
As for his plans next fall, the four-star defensive back hopes to make an immediate impact in Georgia’s secondary.
“Georgia is lacking at cornerback after this year, so if I can come in and get bigger, I think I can fill that role in the nickel that Damian Swann has done in the past and make a name for myself,” Wiggins said.
Like I said, I’ve been thoroughly impressed with Wiggins for a long while now and I cannot wait to see what he does in a red and black jersey.
