I heard from a UGAg alumnus last night and they believe they will have CCG in Athens next year. I'm sure this is just a rumor but I would think CCG would be an extremely attractive candidate for any Major D1 program. Does anyone have any inside info on the legitimacy of the rumors?

I have no inside info but my estimation would be UGA firing their coach is very unlikely. This is Coach Stricklin's 4th season at UGA and he just brought in the #4 recruiting class in the country this past summer. I can't imagine they would look to kill that momentum. They have a ton of young talent. I don't know if your source is saying that because they haven't performed very well, or because they've heard something, but making a move for UGA would be weird at this point, I think.
I'm certain that Coach Gibson has been and will continue to be approached by bigger programs, but I don't know if he'd go. He played at Mercer, he's been in the job for a long time, he is consistently successful, he just got a kick ass facility, my guess is an indoor player development facility is on the horizon, he's recruiting well, and Mercer as a program is definitely on the rise. It just seems like there is a lot of good going on that he pretty much built himself over the last 15 years to abandon all that now.
But you never know.
Come all ye loyal sons and daughters, ring out the victory song. United all each foe we'll conquer. The battle now will not be long. The Orange and Black is proudly flying like a sign high in the sky, That leads us all in triumph. For Mercer we will live and die!
