ATHENS, Ga. -- The numbers speak for Mike Bobo these days, but Georgia coach Mark Richt sang his praises following Saturday’s win against Tennessee, anyway.

After watching his Bulldogs score 51 points -- extending Georgia’s program-record string of five straight games with 40-plus points and total 560 yards against the Volunteers, Richt heaped compliments on his offensive coordinator.

“Mike has just blossomed into one heck of a coach,” Richt said of Bobo, who has been the target of plenty of fan criticism in recent seasons. “I know anybody who calls plays catches grief. I was a play-caller and I caught my share of grief, and so anybody calling plays catches grief. But I’ve always known Mike as just a heck of a ball coach. He understands the game.
