9:47 a.m. ET "I think that the greatest expectation that I have for this team to understand how important it is to put the work in and work together." He makes the "two stars" comment again. Having heard it in person, it is more along the lines that some have said (team members wanted Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno to do it all) than throwing the pair under the bus.

9:48 a.m. ET "I'm amazed I'm still here (at Georgia)."

9:51 a.m. ET Voted for Tim Tebow. "I think that's what everybody has said so far." Then he's asked what he made of all these questions. "I think that the ballots are private for a reason. ... I think everyone has a right to their own opinion." Not when it comes to the Golden Tebow; we must all accept his greatness without exception. Sort of like Kim Jong-Il, only with more accuracy.

9:55 a.m. ET Location of the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party Cocktail Party Cocktail Party. "I want to focus on winning that game." Even if it is too hot in Jacksonville to do so.

9:58 a.m. ET Won't rule out another blackout. "If the fans don't buy into it, it's no good. ... After what happened at Alabama last year, I'm not sure everybody would wear black." I would. Oh, he's talking about Georgia fans. That's another matter.

10:13 a.m. ET Bobby Petrino "knows what he's doing." Already looking for another job? Second season breakout. "That makes me a little concerned, too."

10:14 a.m. ET "Every decision I've ever made since I've been in Georgia has been to try to make a decision that would help us in the long run." I think that's a fair statement. "Everything I've done is to try to make sure that we will be here for the long haul." I've come to the realization that the South Carolina fan dream that he will leave for FSU or Miami is gone. He'll retire from Georgia unless he's fired -- which looks like a remote possibility.
