Dogs' Cox keeps job after 'reality check'

By  | 

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Joe Cox knows he's not the only reason
Georgia won't win the SEC or play in a major bowl this season.

The quarterback can't be blamed for Georgia giving up more
points or rushing for fewer yards per game than any team in the
Southeastern Conference.

After taking one day earlier this week to consider benching Cox,
coach Mark Richt is sticking with the senior for Saturday's game
against Tennessee Tech.

Cox says it made sense for the coach to consider a switch at
quarterback following an ugly loss to Florida. He says a change at
quarterback "can cause a spark" for a struggling team.

Georgia (4-4) needs a spark to avoid a losing season, but Cox
has the starting job. He says he also has a reality check.
