Fire Mark Richt? Kiss My Class.

Oh man, he just keeps winning football games.  The Anti-Richt/Bobo crowd has got to be kicking itself in the balls....all the way to the Georgia Dome.  That's right, kids...ANOTHER appearance in the SEC title game.  Last time that happened?  04-05...when Georgia lost the '04 contest, then won the '05.  Back-to-back victories against Florida.  Last time that happened?  1988-1989.  Shutout Auburn.  Last time that happened?    1976.  Eight victories in eleven tries against Auburn.  Last time that happened?  Not since the game was played in Columbus Georgia in the 40's and 50's.

Sorry haters, Richt is a Good Damn Coach, and he ain't goin' anywhere.

There are those who hate his style and his demeanor, who complain that he's too much of a choir-boy.  There are those who hate his benching of players as a measure of discipline.
There are those who wish he was more of a mean sommommabitch, because you know, that's what it takes to win.

Well, I think you haters can just pucker up and Kiss His Class.  Richt wins, and he does it the right way.  We're a few weeks from finding out if he can go up against the "best" coach in the SEC and beat him (as he has a couple times already) and possibly get a chance to play for the elusive BCS title.

But even if he doesn't, I think it's fair to say that Richt is back in a big way, and that this latest crop of young players (Gurley, Marshall, Mitchell, Jenkins, Swann, etc) may be the best he's brought Georgia.  Bright things are on the horizon, and when the spotlight is already on the program, that's a pretty great thing to be able to say.

Go Dawgs.

We've played one complete team this year, and got pantsed by them. Can we at least wait and see how we do against a second quality team before cooking the crow?

This kind of has been the issue for 5+ years now. We can beat the lesser teams, but when we square off against someone our equal, we've been losing 90% of the time. And when we've faced a top 10 caliber team, we've been humiliated.

Yes, things look great now, but let's see these chickens hatch before screaming about the quality of our eggs.

Actually, it was the 2002 and 2003 seasons when the Dogs went to back to back SECCGs. Georgia didn't go in 2004.

Homer/Small Group,
