Legendary Georgia Bulldog and Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker (1-0) returns to MMA action when he faces veteran Scott Carson (4-1) at Strikeforce: Diaz vs Cyborg, live from the HP Pavilion in San Jose and airing on Showtime. The Goal Line Stalker was originally scheduled to face Carson earlier this month in St. Louis, but was forced off the card after suffering a deep facial laceration in training with 2008 US Olympic wrestling captain Daniel Cormier. Walker won his professional debut last January. Headlining the event are a pair of championship bouts, setting this up as one of the biggest MMA cards for the first half of 2011. Main Card Welterweight Championship bout: Nick Diaz vs. Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos Middleweight Championship bout: Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza vs. Robbie Lawler Heavyweight bout: Herschel Walker vs. Scott Carson Light Heavyweight bout: Roger Gracie vs. Trevor Prangley

From MMAJunkie.com: Strikeforce heavyweight and former NFL great Herschel Walker (1-0 MMA, 1-0 SF) suffered a deep cut in training and has been forced to withdraw from next month's "Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu" event. Strikeforce officials today confirmed the change with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). Featuring a light heavyweight matchup between Dan Henderson and Renato "Babalu" Sobral, "Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu" takes place Dec. 4 and airs on Showtime. "I feel terrible about this," Walker stated in today's official release. "I know things like this happen in all sports, but I had trained very hard and was excited to be returning to the cage again." Walker had been expected to face one-time WEC veteran Scott Carson (4-1 MMA, 0-0 SF). According to Strikeforce officials, a Daniel Cormier knee strike opened a "deep cut under [Walker's] left eye that required multiple stitches"... Despite the setback, Walker said he hopes to return to action quickly. "I hope to fight again as soon as the cut heals," Walker said.

Stewart, I am a believer that a fan base must always answer the question "And hire whom?" before they talk about firing a coach. If you cannot name a better option than the current guy, forget it. I find myself teetering on the Mark Richt discussion. If he goes, who would be your hire? -- Dave, Atlanta I'm with you, Dave. If Georgia runs off Richt this year, it will be textbook Clemson/Ole Miss Syndrome. (Note the example cited in that link: Minnesota. How's that working out?) Historically, Georgia is more prestigious than either of those teams -- but not as much as Dawgs fans like to think. In all my travels, I'm not sure I've ever come across a fan base whose self-perception is so far from reality. Georgia fashions itself a national power in the vein of Ohio State, USC, et. al., based primarily off one glorious three-year run 30 years ago with Herschel Walker (and some kick-butt years in the 1940s). Prior to this season, the Dawgs under Richt had vastly outperformed their historical "equilibrium," and in fact Richt's career winning percentage (.752) is the highest in school history (not counting Bobby Winston's lone 5-1 season in 1894). But in today's SEC, the goal is national championships, and three other league coaches hired by their schools more recently than Richt -- Florida's Urban Meyer, LSU's Miles and Alabama's Nick Saban -- have 'em. Richt doesn't. And at 0-3 in the SEC, winning one anytime soon probably seems like a very remote possibility. But realistically, the chances of hiring another Ray Goff are higher than the school landing its own Meyer or Saban. Texas head-coach-in-waiting Will Muschamp (a UGA alum) is a realistic and enticing possibility, but beyond that, there is not a single coach out there I'd consider an upgrade from Richt (and even Muschamp is no guarantee). Let's see how the season plays out. With a light upcoming schedule, a freshman quarterback who should theoretically progress and the return of A.J. Green, my guess is the Dawgs will go on a run. If they can salvage things and win eight games, and still fire him ... well, just take a look at Tennessee for a glimpse into their immediate future. Stewart Mandel
