Ugliness is in the eye of the beholder.

Richt question: “How do you still have your job after 2 SEC Titles, a 7-2 bowl record, and 90 wins? Is it a miracle that you’re employed?”

— Spencer Hall’s Twitter feed

I’m not sure why Jeff Schultz thinks Mark Richt signed up for the level of responsibility Schultz assigns to him in this post, but Hall’s sarcasm strikes me as the proper rebuttal to that.

But here’s the real point

It’s going to be tough to beat Richt who is simply flat-out likeable.  If Georgia ever does run him off — and I’m not saying the school will — Richt would be employed somewhere else in a heartbeat.

If Adams decided to can Mark Richt, how long do you think it would take another major program to grab him?  Does that strike you as an attribute for somebody whose reputation has been irretrievably tarnished by the events of the past few months?

    Richt’s our coach as long as he wants to be. The national media and ten to fifteen angry and delusional Dawgventers just need to deal with it.

      Fortunately for us, I believe that greed isn’t a motivator for Richt. I think things would have to be uncomfortable for him (and his family) in Athens for him to make a switch.

      Has anyone published an arrest ratio per coach to see where we really stand nationally? Total number of player bookings divided by years of tenure? Fulmer Cup standings aside, is our number of total player arrests in the off season under Richt high? Really high? Really, really f***ing high?

      If you spend a lot of time reading college football news, there are always kids getting arrested. If they are 3rd stringers on Conf USA team, it’s probably not a sign of the end of days like the AJC likes to say for UGA.

        Any arrest ratio would have to factor in the severity of the crime. Not giving your middle name or “emerging from an alley” on a scooter shouldn’t get the same weight as beating up an off-duty police officer.

    If Richt was an incompetent coach, but still a nice guy, do you think these media types would be yelling for his head? Part of it is the fact that he’s a successful coach running a quality program and he’s a threat to the other 11 schools’ success, so he’s a natural target.

    I just have to say that I wouldn’t want another coach in the country running my program, nobody! I love what he stands for, how he handles his players, deals with the media, etc. He is truly a breath of fresh air in an era when it’s sometimes hard to breathe because of all the smoke being blown by other coaches across the country.

      I agree 100%. I get frustrated w/o seeing the Dawgs win 10 games a year, beat UF routinely, and play for titles. At this point, though, who out there is a better leader or representative of our program?

      Sure it’d be nice to have a few crystal footballs in the Heritage Hall right now, but at the expense of having Urban Meyer or the incessant fear that Saban might leave any minute? I truly, honestly, not sure.

      Winning titles takes luck and beating everyone consistently. No one has been beating UF consistently lately, but they’ve also had one of the top players in CFB history on their team the last four years.

      I think (and hope) the field is about to level again. I think (and hope) we’ll be all right in the years to come. If Richt starts pumping out 10 wins/yr, beating UF on the regular (a few in a row wouldn’t hurt), and we pull in an SEC title in the next two yrs, this talk will ALL cool down (obviously) and things will be right in our world.

        The field will not be level between UF and UGA until something is done about playing the Gators as an away game every year. The problem isn’t just that the Gators get homefield every year. The other problem is when UGA has to play five SEC games away and only three SEC games at home because of the WLOCP. Has anyone stopped to figure out that if the Dawgs had beaten the Gators 17 0ut of the last 20 instead of the other way around that UGA would have won a lot of those SEC Championships and BCSNCs instead of the Gators? This one game is what is costing us. If you have to have a game at a neutral site, move it to the Georgia Dome. That’s as neutral as Jacksonville.

    Wake up people, it’s the 21st Century! Nobody seems to get it! It’s a high stakes poker game called “Championships Plural”(The National Championship and The SEC Championship) It started at the beginning of the 21st Century. Mark Richt and Georgia were playing at the table with two SEC Championships! Over the past four years “Middle of the Pack Mark” has posted no Championships and is no longer at the table with LSU, Florida and Alabama.
    It’s not about 10 wins (or averaging 10 wins), It’s about winning championships!
    Let me see if I have it straight? 1. Mettenberger was dismissed. 2. A. Murray was given the number one spot after a dismal G-Day performance. 3. Logan Gray is all but “alienated”. 4.

    our President fired our last coach when it was apparent that our program had plateaued, we had lost to all of our biggest rivals, and the AD could not guarantee that the overall and record against are rivals would improve the next year.
    Richt is just 9-7 to our four biggest annual rivals (UT, UF, AU, Ga Tech) over the last four years. Our overall record the last four years is strong but we certainly have had a share of frustration too.
    While I have been on record that I do not think that Richt is on the hot seat, I also believe that given Adams proclivities for meddling in athletics that it is not beyond him to step in to make a change if he thinks CMR has peaked and we struggle against our traditional rivals. I think we UGA fans would be deluded to think that Adams believes that he is that powerful.
    The problem, as I have stated before (here and other places) is not that we UGA fans believe it. The problem is that coverage and commentary are rapidly moving beyond “is he or is he not” to he is on the hot seat. It’s now a “fact” because so many people are writing about it.

    I especially do not want to be 10-3 and # 19 again for the 5th year in a row for the # 11 All-Time College Football Program in 1-A wins.

    If Coach Richt is # 19 this season, since he loses 15 seniors 4-5 juniors after the season, you can absolutely bet that Coach Richt will look back as to why he lost his cushy job here at UGA.

    Coach Richt’s Coaching Staff the entire 9-Year Coach Richt Era, has SUCKED. And, if he doesn’t go 11-2 or better this season, playing only 1 ranked team all season, then you can bet everyone will say it was not Coach Richt but Coach Richt hires and keeps on his Coaching Staff that cost him being great.

  28. Mr. Georgia Football Returns

    Well here maybe this will cheer you up!

    There is rumor that the UGA program could receive NCAA penalties for violating the talent abuse rule….Section 12.A.22 “If any Division 1 football team has a tremendous amount of talent and fails to play for a national title within a 10 year period, and settles for a medicre SEC title every once in awhile, then this team is subject to penalties by the NCAA.”
    You might be a “Mark Richt”.
    1.If you tell everybody about winning 10 games while averaging three conference losses(over the last four years) you might be a “Mark Richt”.
    2.If you redshirt Knowshon Moreno you might be a “Mark Richt”.
    3.If you tell everybody how experienced your offensive line is and the same players have underperformed for two straight years against the SEC opponents…you might be a “Mark Richt”.
    4.If you have the same record as Jim Donnan for the last four years and not get fired… you might be a “Mark Richt”.
    5.If you pocket $15 million over five years without winning a championship….you might be a “Mark Richt”.
    6.If you tell the Dawg Nation words to the effect “talk to God, the face don’t want to here it”…you might be a “Mark Richt”.
    7.If you recruit excellent football players(for the last four years) and then don’t do anything with them…you might be a “Mark Richt”.
    8.If your team is preseason #1 and you get beat by Alabama 31-0 at halftime in front of a home crowd…you might be a “Mark Richt”.
    9.If you think black helmets and white jerseys are a way to motivate your team…you might be a “Mark Richt”.
    10.If you have watched season ticket prices drop from $10,000 down to $1550….you might be a “Mark Richt”.
    11.If you spend an additional $500,000 a year for new coaching staff to address the problem and still don’t solve the problem you might be a “Mark Richt”.

      Given that Grantham has coached no games yet, how can you claim he hasn’t solved the defensive problems? Are you seriously claiming that he’s no better than Martinez? Are you seriously claiming anything at all?
