You know, you didn’t really need to point that out.

David Paschall plays Debbie Downer with this factoid:

… Thursday was the first time the Bulldogs have practiced in a 3-4 system since 1994, when Ray Goff was coach and Marion Campbell defensive coordinator.

Ugh.  Goff never should have asked a swamp fox to do a junkyard dog’s work.

    The people saying it’s time to ditch Richt obviously didn’t live through that.

    • It never ceases to amaze me. As much as we like taking shots at the Gators and the fact that their history began in 1990, Georgia fans would do well to remember that there was football played in Athens for the nearly 20 years after Herschel left and before Richt arrived and for the most part it was average to mediocre to terrible. Ask me in 1994 if I’d take two SEC titles and a 10 win a season avg over the next nine years, but I’d have to lose to the Gators 7 times. I’d take that deal in a heartbeat.

        While I usually agree with your logic I must disagree here, at least with the premise of your post. Actually, it was 17 years to be precise and there were exactly 3 losing seasons (4-7 in ’89 under Goff, 5-6 in ’93 also under Goff and 5-6 in ’96 under Donnan). There were a couple of 6-6 seasons, too, but also some 10-2 years, 9-3 years and several 8-4 years. UGA was 10-1-1 in ’83 (the year after Herschel left). So, it wasn’t all bad. We just didn’t win championships like Dooley had. But we did not become Kentucky or Mississippi State as your post implies. However, I do join you in saying that I am very happy that Mark Richt is UGA HC and I think his best days are still ahead.

    Vandy looked like the Blitzkrieg in Poland against the Swamp Fox.
