You can’t get away from the hot seat.

Even if you’re Vince Dooley in Washington, Georgia, signing copies of your gardening book.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Way too polite there, Coach Dooley.  I would have gone for the harsh look and “that’s a stupid question” response, for starters.

    “… yet if you ask most Georgia fans, Mark Richt may be coaching for his job.”

    This is what happens when we skimp on education funding. We end up surrounded by idiotic newspeople and their lousy interviews and/or news columns. I know our national media and dialogue has been ‘dumbed down’, but I never thought it would get, and stay, at this level of stupid.

      Augusta, Georgia is TV market rank #114.

      This reporter has Glendive, Montana written all over him.

        As a resident, I can tell you that none of the local news/sports TV outlets are watchable.

        “Reporters” come and go like migrant workers. The kind that can’t make quota.

        Folk is probably far from home, with his 3rd or 4th “local team,” and has less knowledge about UGA football than I do about astro-physics (which consists of Stephen Hawkings’ name).

          As a former employee of one of the local stations (11 years ago @ News12), I can tell you that our sports director was clueless most of the time. As far as Augusta as a market, though, you’re right. It’s a stepping stone market. If you’re good, you’re not there very long. In fact, at the time I was there, 26 had the best combo of sports guys of anybody in the market.

    “If you ask MOST Georgia fans”?!!!?!

    Get back to journalism school, Jason Folk!! That is lazy, lazy, shoddy work. The entire thing is a creation of the media. It’s media masturbation. It boggles my mind that these people can just fabricate a myth based on the message board rants of ten or twenty people and then spend the entire year just repeating it until it becomes fact. Ridiculous.

      It doesn’t just work with sports. Politics, religion, etc . . .

      has he ASKED most Georgia fans?

      I weep for the future if this is the kind of crisp standard of accuracy today’s talking head class is using as its standard. This dweeb might as well have said “According to the writings of Nostradamus, Mark Richt is on the hot seat in 2010. How does that make you feel?”

    Using a similar methodology as Folk apparently used I asked myself, “Is Jason Folk on the hot seat?” After answering in the affirmative, and being in the WAGT viewing area, I can only assume that Jason Folk’s job is in serious trouble. He’s a nice enough guy, but local viewers need to get their heads out of the sand and realize that he will never lead WAGT’s sports programming where they want to go.

    if the people of Montana don’t know if Mark Richt is on the hot seat, is the seat hot?


  6. negative ?


    Then, we lose 15 seniors and 4-5 juniors.

    2011 will be thin.
