Man, I sure hope this works.

Coach Mark Fox will have his work cut out for him. He has to move across the country, find a house, and assemble his staff. He has to make sense of the roster at Georgia.

The good thing is that Felton left some talent, with some decent players in each class. So, in that sense, Fox will have much more to work with than Felton had when he arrived.

Albert Jackson is the lone senior, although I suspect that Ricky McPhee might get placed on scholarship. The junior class has Jeremy Price and Chris Barnes. Sophomores will be Travis Leslie, Dustin Ware, Drazen Zlovaric and Howard Thompkins. Ebuka Anyaorah, Daniel Miller and Demario Mayfield will be freshmen.

Everyone is academically eligible, for now. Hopefully, Travis Leslie will stay that way. There is no NCAA cloud.

The remaining questions: Will there be more defections from the roster? Can Fox hire a great recruiter for Atlanta? If we can't bring in a big-name head coach, what makes us think we can attract a top-flight recruiter? Are there any other recruits still on the board?

So, there are some answers, some questions. I sure hope this works.
