You can never have too much.

They’re getting the band back together–this time in Gainesville.
Man the rumor mill is hard at work today, over at 247 they are saying Scherrer may be leaving and that CJP blew up at someone, geez what the hell is going on
I sure hope there is no truth to this one, would be catastrophic to run off Pruitt cause the AD wouldn’t offer Scherrer a counter offer…..assuming the rumor is true
So scratch that name off the leaderboard in Athens. Next???
No doubt the AD has set fire to the house.
Said before CMR can not manage people…players and coaches. Roster management is a big issue for him. Contrary to the “family” gig.
Maybe Vince, Ray, Donnan and a few others can carry the team to the bowl
What’s the news, if any, on Roper?
What if this is all some Machiavellian ploy to force Richt out? We know there are plenty of power brokers who want him gone, and letting this happen is one way to force his hand. He’d have another gig in a minute if he wanted it.
I know Bobo leaving is not about compensation, but my word we’ve got some a good staff and good chemistry on defense and we should try to keep that together.
Why wouldn’t the power brokers have forced him out before they gave him a raise and contract extension last year?
Sorry. I’m just a little bit manic-depressive about it all right now. I’m taking this Bobo leaving thing really hard.
We can weave a grand motivation that somehow lines up these events and rumors in a somewhat linear fashion, but the simpler explanation is this:
McGarity wants to prove he can run the Georgia athletic department his way, which simply means he thinks there is enough coaching talent and player talent out there to keep Georgia at 9 wins most years, 11 or 7 every once in awhile. He thinks supply exceeds demand when it comes to coaching and player personnel. He’s betting that when the dust settles he’s going to have a better bottom line than Auburn or LSU or Tennessee – everyone but Alabama, a school that arguably lucked into Saban and lucked into 2 out of 3 of their championship game opportunities. No one thought the man would even approach this level of success.
There’s really no risk for McGarity in this approach until he has to replace (or compete for the services of) Richt. That’s when his vision and competency really gets put to the test. Until then, he’s more interested in profits than increasing his expenses 50% in the hopes that it increases football’s annual win margin by 10%.
Whoa, back away from the ledge folks.
I guess giving Richt the benefit of the doubt to assemble a good staff is completely off the table.
Yep, you would think that after the (seemingly) great hires on defense, we could just wait and see what happens…
Chickens are coming home to roost on McFrugal hire. Adams put a puppet in the job for selfish reasons, then helped place a successor would not change what he had started. You cannot assemble, or manage, a staff when the boys up top on reading from a different sheet of music. Before anyone says that GM is in the exact same position, just one level higher, it is his job as Captain of the Athletic Ship to fight this battle. It is his department, get them what they need or go down with the ship. You are leaving them in battle with not enough provisions or ammunition….stand up for them and stop speaking like a damn politician while throwing your head field general under the bus.
Mac, that was beautiful…the GA football squad and B-M is exactly like singing chickens driving army busses.
you totally just won the Metaphor Heisman. How does it feel?
(please answer with a metaphor or simile so you don’t disappoint the flocks back home)
McCheap is undoing the outstanding staff CMR has built either intentionally or unintentionally. People aren’t stupid. If they don’t know now, they certainly will know soon, that McCheap is an albatross around the neck of the football program and, I would argue, all sports at Georgia. Maybe this was all created by Adams, but he’s out now. The chickens are coming home to roost during Morehead’s administration. Morehead better intervene to straighten things out, maybe even fire McCheap, or his own ass will be on the line when the public and the Regents wake up.
