Did the bad luck for the Bull­dogs start with a stomp­ing steer? There might be some­thing to that the­ory af­ter Ge­or­gia’s side­line fix­ture bark­ing at foes of all sizes was sent run­ning for cover along with me­dia of­fi­cials when the Texas Longhorn got some­what loose. Oops. Mi­ami lost a head coach last Sun­day morn­ing, and by the af­ter­noon had an­other. Mark Richt sud­denly an­nounced he was re­tir­ing from the Hur­ri­canes pro­gram, and Manny Diaz was picked not too long af­ter that to take over, even af­ter he an­nounced he was go­ing to Tem­ple. See Page B4 Wrestling re­sults from the end of the year Jacket In­vi­ta­tional Tour­na­ment and a few more pho­tos are avail­able in this week’s edi­tion of the Stan­dard Jour­nal sports sec­tion on Page B2. The coach­ing carousel didn’t stop last week as West Vir­ginia Uni­ver­sity lost and picked a new head for their pro­gram quickly. Troy’s Neal Brown was tapped to lead the Moun­taineers and a con­tract ne­go­ti­ated last week. No word on whether this will af­fect Tony Mathis head­ing to WVU. Good news for Nick Chubb! As the reg­u­lar sea­son fin­ished, he had just four yards shy of a 1,000 yard rookie reg­u­lar sea­son, and was a fi­nal­ist along with team­mate Baker May­field for Rookie of the Year for his per­for­mance with the 7-8-1 Browns. It doesn’t feel like a lot of fun to be an At­lanta Hawks fan again this sea­son. As of press time, the 11-27 Hawks stood at 12 in the East­ern Con­fer­ence and just came off a 144-112 point loss to Mil­wau­kee. They’ve got Toronto on Tues­day, Brook­lyn tonight and Philadel­phia on Fri­day.
