Richt on the hot seat?????

Postby Chief Shooting Bull » Wed Aug 11, 2010 8:27 pm

Man AM I tired of hearing that!!! :evil:

Coach Mark Richt has never won a BCS National Championship. His
teams have never even played for a BCS National Championship. He has
a losing record against Florida. At times he seems to be the nice
guy who sometimes isn’t as fiery as other coaches. That’s where the
negativity stops.

Before Coach Richt, Georgia had NEVER been to the SEC championship
game. Under Coach Richt, the dawgs have been 3 times and won
twice.Before Coach Richt, Georgia hadnt won the SEC in 20 years.
They now can claim 2002 and 2005 as “year of the dawg”

Before Coach Richt, Georgia had NEVER beaten a top 5 team on the
road. In 2006, Georgia dismantled Auburn at home 38-15 and it wasnt
even that close. Coach Richt even took a knee on Auburn’s 5 yard
line despite me screaming “KICK IT!!! Hang 41 on them!!!”

Before Coach Richt, Georgia was 1-8 versus Tennessee since the SEC
divided into East & West. Since Coach Richt, Georgia is 5-4.

Before Coach Richt, Georgia was in a 3 game losing streak to Georgia
Tech. Since Coach Richt Georgia is 7-1 including the biggest win
over Georgia Tech ever at 51-7 in 2002 and a 7 game winning streak.
(Georgia’s biggest streak ever)

Before Coach Richt, Georgia had NEVER won in Tuscaloosa. Under Coach
Richt, they are unbeaten.

Since he arrived, Georgia has not played for a National
Championship. That is not Coach Mark Richt’s fault. In 2002, Georgia
finished 13-1, only to see 2 unbeaten teams with much weaker
schedules play in Tempe, Arizona. Georgia finished at #3. In 2007, a
2 loss Georgia team was skipped due to the human polls to allow a 2
loss LSU team to play for a NC. Georgia finished with a #2 ranking
and an 11-2 record. But Georgia was in the national spotlight and in
the argument. Something Georgia hadnt had in over 20 years. That was
all before Coach Richt.

Here are a few more thoughts to ponder.
(1-)-His .770 winning percentage is 4th best among active coaches.
(2-)He is the longest tenured coach now in the SEC.
(3-) 6 out of 9 (including 7 of the last 9) times his teams have won
10 or more games, winning as many as 13 games in 2002.
(4-)He is a 2 time SEC Coach of the year.
(5-)He is 38-4 against Non-Conference opponents.
(6-)His teams are 33-5 when playing in an opponents home stadium.
(7-)In 25 years, Coach Dooley had 7 “10 win seasons”. In 8 years,
Coach Richt has done that 6 times already.
(8-) Coach Richt has won 90 games in his first nine seasons. He is
the ONLY Coach in SEC history to accomplish that feat. Not The Bear,
not Saban, not Jordan, not Fulmer, not even Spurrier or even our
beloved Coaches Dooley or Butts.
(9-) Coach Richt is 1 of only 5 SEC Coaches to record 4 STRAIGHT 10
win seasons.
(10-) With a 10-2 regular season, CMR will be 100-29 this year. Of
course, I want more, but thats not too bad huh?

These are the accomplishments on the field. The off the field
accomplishments include the habitat for humanity work, the mission
work in Honduras , Camp Sunshine for
children, etc.

Coach Richt is MY coach. He is the coach of MY team. I am very proud
to have him. Coach Richt may not have his National Championship yet,
but rest assured, he will.

It would be stupid to ditch him IMHO. The fact is that the SEC is a tough league. But I do have to say that he needs to do better locking down the in state recruits. Auburn and Tenn stole a bunch last year and my Tide already has gotten a few for 2011.

GA is rich in talent and there's no excuse for losing all the blue chip guys to out of state programs. I'd love to see ya'll in Atlanta every year over Florida any day.

I'm not a Georgia fan. But Mark Richt is one heck of a coach and recruiter. Most SEC teams would can their current coach to have Richt. No... I don't think he will ever be on the hot seat....

UGA message boards are in full melt down.

Richt is in for a long season. Definitely on the hot seat now.

Agreed. If they let Richt go, he would get at least 10 phone calls within the hour offering him a new job.

I've never been a UGA fan, but I respect Mark Richt and would love to have him as the coach of the Tigers.
George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to defeat the British, he shot them.
