So, Barrett Sallee asked a question last night…
… and I responded with this.
I suspect he thought I was being snarky.
But for once, I wasn’t.
Mark Richt may not have won his fair share of titles over the last few years of his run in Athens, but beating Auburn was a different story. Kirby hasn’t done too badly so far, either.
Sallee hasn’t responded to my last tweet, so I’m wondering what you guys think. It’s not that I don’t respect Auburn — clearly the Tigers go into this season as the toughest opponent on Georgia’s schedule — but what has to happen to turn around a 3-10 stretch? The obvious thing to me is that Gus does a lot better when he has the right kind of quarterback for his system, but even with that, Cam was a generational-type talent, the kind that doesn’t exactly grow on trees, and Auburn split the two games with Marshall. (For that matter, Stidham did the same in 2017.)
