Well, at least as it pertains to UGA's new basketball coach, it's optimism.
Loran Smith obviously likes the background that Mark Fox brings to the job. The two of them seemed to hit it off, if Loran's story is any indication.
Wimp Sanderson likes Fox for his work ethic. That's a must-have for any SEC coach.
But can Fox win? The SEC will be tough. If he can get into the top three of the SEC East, he will get my vote for coach of the year.
