One of these coaches is not like the others.

To give you an idea of how ludicrous the Mark Richt-hot seat meme is under scrutiny, check out the opener to the final post in the Orlando Sentinel’s ground breaking series entitled “Coaches on the Hot Seat”:

Today is Part V of a five-part series on college football coaches on the Hot Seat. Part I looked at Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez.  Part II looked at Georgia coach Mark Richt, Part II looked at Colorado coach Dan Hawkins. Part IV looked at Washington State coach Paul Wulff. Now on to Part V …

Ralph Friedgen, Maryland…

Let’s see… Rodriguez is coming off of back-to-back losing seasons, Hawkins is 16-33 at Colorado, Wulff’s program has three wins total in his two seasons at WSU and Friedgen’s squad set a school record with ten losses in 2009.

You can see how Mark Richt really fits in with that bunch.

Maybe everybody’s on a hot seat.

Über-recruit James Vaughters has reduced his list of college choices to five schools.  He discussed his choices with Chip Towers and had this to say about Ohio State:  “Out of all my final schools, I’d say I’m most comfortable with coach Jim Tressel as far as being there the whole time there.”

His other finalists are Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Stanford.

Now that sounds like the results of some intriguing negative recruiting going on out there.  I mean, where in the hell does he think Paul Johnson’s going?

I picked the wrong week to give up one-liners.

Since he’s on the hot seat and all, I guess it’s appropriate to consider whether Mark Richt’s SEC legacy will have the same impact as Junior’s.

Meteor game

It occurs to me that watching Bill Hancock and Orrin Hatch go at it with each other is just like watching the Florida-Tennessee game.
