I’m just as bored as the next guy, so let me add two more thoughts to the debate.
First, what really did Donnan in wasn’t his occasionally prickly personality, the record against Tech, hitching his wagon to Quincy’s star or the inevitable let down after the now infamous “I’ve been waiting” comment before the 200o season. It was, instead, the same sin that Ray Goff committed – not hiring a first rate defensive coordinator. That’s why I’ll always see the 1999 Auburn game as Donnan’s Waterloo. And why I’ll always believe that hiring VanGorder was the smartest thing Mark Richt ever did.
Second, I’ll never be able to dismiss Donnan as completely as Kyle does, simply because he directed one of the iconic games of the Georgia football program.
56-49, bitches. Thanks for that, Coach.
