Get a room, you two.

Seems like the Atlanta media is protecting their access.
I think Bradley, Schultz, & 680 the Fan are all willing accomplices to the cabal that fired Richt. They way they let themselves get used in the name of access, even if they think it’s the right move, reflects an embarrassing credulousness on their part.
Are you talking about his nose, his front bottom or is back bottom?
Second best? Unless we can call handing the ball to Herschel Walker a great coaching job, how does CMR end up second? I’d say CMR is first by a nose and he’s certainly no worse than in a tie with Vince by any measure.
I’m sure this makes complete sense to you and maybe one or two other people on the entire face of the earth.
Notsonormal Mike, facts are Mark Richt has a better winning percentage than Dooley at Georgia. Took Dooley 18 years and the best college football running back in history, and a miracle in Florida to win a NC.
So, complete sense to you might not be shared by a lot of normal people?
Stop changing your handle, Derek. You aren’t fooling anyone.
Is that you Mike?
Richt also won more bowl games than Dooley.
Derek correct on that one, take out Herschels years and you see the difference even moreso.
Apparently you’re wrong on that. Maybe it’s you who doesn’t make sense.
Obviously championships are all that matters. That’s why Gene Chizik is a better head coach than Richt. It’s also why Trent Dilfer was a better QB than Dan Marino. I mean, duh!
I am on record in my belief that Richt is the best HC in the Dawg’s history.
I also believe that if Richt takes another HC job, then that school will have
a better HC than the Dawgs will have. I am confident in my beliefs and
really do not care if others disagree with me. Just proves they are wrong.
I am one who was “sorta” in favor of CMR moving on although I don’t like the way it was done. I thought the object was to get an “upgrade” at HC. Kirby Smart is not an upgrade. This is playing out even worse than my worst fears about the cheapness and incompetence of B-M and McGarity in particular. Before the firing even occurred the Senator warned us that he had no confidence in B-M hiring a new HC. That observation has proven to be right on the money.
Bradley. Excellence in journalism exemplified. Two phrases never uttered by anyone with an actual brain.
I could almost hear the Star Spangled Banner playing in the background as I read that crap!
You actually read it? Knowing it was Bradley should tell you what was in the column.
McGarity is the Second most hated man in Georgia…behind Mark Bradley.
Where does Schultz fall in the hierarchy?
Does Terrence Moore still live in Georgia?
No idea what happened to Moore. He was awful–like a race baiting Mark Bradley (shudder). I often wondered how that man managed to type his articles with that 4 ton chip on his shoulder. With that ax to grind, I can only imagine he has a job somewhere in the Dept. of Justice.
He makes appearances on WSB-TV’s SportsZone show at 11:30 on Sunday nights as an “expert.” This Sunday night he seemed giddy that Richt had been fired (even happier than some commenters here). I’ll never watch that show again.
LOL. He’s been banned I guess.
He sure sounds like moo, moo when spitting his hate of anything UGA.
I know Schultz hates UGA (and it might be blasphemy to mention this on here)…but sometimes his stuff is funny. I don’t mind him as much as Bradley.
Beat me to it.
What a fanboy-to-the-powerful doofus Bradley is.
“but it would appear the tennis letterman has served an ace.” Love hurts
My favorite part of the article, easily.
Mark Bradley after he wrote that gem:
They called a double-fault on Bark Madly by making him do an extra TPS report and moving his stapler
Greg Bluestein (AJC Political Clickbait Reporter and former AJC Biz, Crime, Courts Clickbait Reporter) quickly stepped in with a hard-hitting 500 word piece on Richt’s political aspirations
ADs are people that hang around college programs and keep getting promoted simply for being there until the Peter Principle catches up with them. Most of them are unqualified to lead complex organizations. Foley is basically the glaring exception.
I think there is a lot of truth to what Bradley is saying in that there was no way for McG to look good. Richt has been a polarizing figure for 5 years and had a cult following among a significant portion of the fanbase–it was going to be messy.
The press conference was bad, but again, what was he going to do? Read the list of Richt’s failures while the sympathetic fired man is quoting scripture next to him? How would that have looked?
Look, I don’t care about McG one way or the other, but I do know that people citing The Georgia Way as Richt’s undoing aren’t being honest with themselves. The Georgia Way don’t trot out Faton, or squib kick, or mismanage the roster so bad that we played 2012 Alabama with 67 scholarship players.
McG has staked his career on Kirby. If it works, he’s proven to be right, if it doesn’t then he’s out of a job. Let’s just let it play out, no?
Really, if it works, he’s proven to be right?
If you win a scratch off lottery ticket, it doesn’t prove that you were right about picking scratch off lottery tickets.
McGarity has proven that regardless of how Smart performs, he is one of the most incompetent ADs in the nation. He should be fired at the earliest opportunity.
that’s the premise of the piece (you should read it).
Never clicking on another piece of ‘journalism’ from Bradley or Schultz for as long as I live. Glad to hear he agrees, though.
What The J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics did in regard to the press conference was allow folks all over the digital world to compare the guy he fired to him. Whether the firing was the correct decision or the incorrect decision is irrelevant. How many folks commented, after watching the presser, said, “Oh, yeah, having watched this McGarity was right! He should have fired him!” Contrast with the number who said, “Gosh, the fired guy comes across with more class and dignity!” McGarity allowed the presser to become a side by side public comparison between himself and a sympathetic figure he jut fired, and it is McGarity’s error in doing so. McGarity should have introduced Richt, said that it was Richt’s event and he wold answer questions later, and left.
Whether you like Richt or not, it was a poor PR job by McGarrity. Never let the guy who others view sympathetically be evaluated next to you. Instead, schedule your moment in the public eye when you can shine alone.
I don’t think he can shine unless he uses a different brand of hair product for the lighting.
Keep this column in your back pocket in the event that Kirby ever loses to Georgia Tech, at which point Bradley will be writing funeral dirges about how McGarity condemned UGA’s football program to second-place status in the state.
It should be interesting to see the reaction of a portion of our fan base should KS ever give the keys to the Joke by Coke back to the nerds.
“Even Marc Rickht never lost to them nerds in Atlanta! FIRE EVER’BODY, PAWWL!”
Richt needs to get as far away from the AJC as is feasible. A long way..
Mark Bradley wants that interview with McGarity to spread all of the dirty details involved in Richt’s firing under unnamed sources, of course.
I’ll admit I had high hopes for our AD when Mama called, but he hasn’t done a damn thing positive since he got here until Jeremy Pruitt got under his skin. His high profile PR blunders have probably tarnished his legacy regardless of what happens with our football program. When he completely botched the PR around Gurley-gate, I was done with him.
I’m looking forward to Schotty’s interview where he throws everyone under the bus in an effort to shake the image that he’s so incompetent he got Mark Richt fired.
Jeff Fisher clearly knows how to survive
Maybe Charles Davis on the NFL Network (is he still there?) can do that. UTK grad and general doofus …
Mark Richt hired him. Mark Richt was responsible for supervising him.
Schotty’s incompetence = Richt’s incompetence.
No doubt … it was a poor decision and probably the one that was the straw that broke the camel’s back
The fact that Mark Bradley, Tech Lover and a known enemy of all things Georgia, has written an article praising Greg McGarity ought to tell you something right there about all this. This is not playing out well for the University of Georgia.
Butthole buddies and Scnults makes a threesome
Why folks read Bradley’s dribble is beyond me. You guys have at it.
Meanwhile, Coach Genius wrings his hands and chuckles that no one has called for his head after his 3 win season. Then again, no one on campus in the projects even knew they had a football team.
This really is ironic. Two teams play a game of football which is the final one for the season for both teams. The HC of one is 3-8 going into the game. The coach of the other is 8-3 going into the game. The coach with the winning record wins the game–and HE gets fired.
Do you think Bradley and Schultz ever consider they are a lot like Richt? Good but not great and been there too long.
Those two sons of a motherless goat, are about useful as two blades of grass. The ONLY thing those bitches are good at is calling for for a coaches head. Chip and Seth are light years ahead of them, Blutarsky’s they are not.
Yes, Mark. Firing Greg McGarity is EXACTLY what we want. I assume Kirby Smart will go undefeated next year, or lose one game at the most (but not to Florida, Auburn, Tennessee, Tech, South Carolina or Missouri, or whoever else we play out of the west), because Greg McGarity is a demander of excellence who has cleverly identified the Man Who WIll Move Us Ahead.
If he believes McGarity “reluctantly” came to the decision to fire Richt,, I have some beachfront property in Macon I’d like to sell him. If he believes McGarity “reluctantly” came to that decision on the way home from this year’s Tech game, I’d like to sell him Stone Mountain, too.
Greg McGarity is a bean counting weasel with nary a speck of class. If he doesn’t give Kirby Smart everything he wants, and puts him under the same restrictions as Coach Richt, don’t expect magically better results. If he gave Richt the same resources he’s probably going to have to give Kirby, Richt could have gotten even better results, too.
Nothing like shaping the narrative to protect a valued source of propaganda and insider info, though. McGarity is a disgrace.
I’m so confused now. I don’t know who to hate…
Do like I do….I hate EVERYBODY. 🙂
Funniest comment I have ever heard on here. LMAO
This whole thing reminds me a bit of the Atlanta Falcons last year. Fired Mike Smith..kept Thomas Dmitrov, the guy who provided the “resources”. How is that working out for the birds?
two words showing worth of said 900 word defense:
I sometime wonder if Bradley and Schultz voted for Obama.
