Russ Mitchell’s wild ride

When last we left the CFN blogger, he had Mark Richt getting canned after the Mississippi State game.  But Mitchell foresees better times ahead for Richt’s unnamed successor.

… After that, it’s back out on the road once again to play Georgia. No advantage for Florida, as the Bulldogs have scheduled their bye week ahead of this contest, as Florida does nearly every season. The Gators will enter Jacksonville physically battered and emotionally staggered, maybe even starting a new quarterback in Jeff Driscoll, as after three consecutive conference losses Muschamp looks ahead to 2012. The Dawgs? They’ll have righted the ship after a 2-3 start, feasting on a soft mid-October of @ Tennessee and Vandy, before that aforementioned bye.

An interim coach beating the Gators?  Stranger things have happened, I suppose, but I’m having a hard time thinking of one right now.  It sure would change the momentum of the series, though.

Will the storybook ending continue into November?  Stay tuned…

Aloha.

It’s become fashionable to dismiss the results on the basis of the opponent, but Bill Connelly suggests that Georgia’s Sugar Bowl win over Hawaii was one of the most dominating bowl performances of the last six seasons.

Maybe they did deserve that #2 ranking after all.

They’re on a road to now here.

In Knoxville, they’re strong on ideas.  It’s the execution that comes up a little short.

Toss in this little blunder, and you can’t help but wonder what’s going on inside the immaculately coiffed head of Derek Dooley.
