Georgia coach Dennis Felton is beginning to feel a bit like Bill Murray's character in Groundhog Day. To Felton, the start of his third season in Athens has an uncanny resemblance to his second season, which bore striking similarities to his first.
"It's almost like this season is the third beginning in three years for us," said Felton, still cleaning up the mess left behind by former coach Jim Harrick, who was forced to resign in 2003 after NCAA violations in his program surfaced. "That's where we're at, starting very much from scratch. We've got a couple of players with experience, but still a majority of our players are inexperienced guys that have to learn how to play and compete at this level."
