Andy Staples, in a piece about what every D1 program’s brand is and should be, writes this:
The brand: The Bulldogs wear red and black with silver britches. They run a pro-style offense, usually led by a deep stable of backs. They have used a 3-4 defense since 2010. They have better players than almost every other program. Despite this, they routinely underachieve.
What it should be: Some of the nation’s best players wear silver britches and compete for a playoff berth at least every other year.
It used to be the media would say it indirectly, with hot seat talk. But when you get down to it, that’s more about pointing a finger at the fan base. It seems like now they’ve begun to eliminate the middleman.
I’m starting to think Richt is going to get some rather pointed questions at SEC Media Days this month.
