2013 can’t completely explain this.
Sure, you can lay some of the blame there. How much goes to poor evaluation or development and how much to various aspects of the Georgia Way, I can’t begin to say, but it takes a village to raise a talent deficit of that magnitude.
To drag out that analogy a little further, Kirby’s the new village manager, but the mayor and village council are still intact. (I’ll leave you to make the rude cracks about the village idiots.) All we can do is hope the manager is sharp enough to overcome the rest of the political structure.
