Waitin' Since Last Saturday Ep 031: Mark Richt Fired

That escalated quickly...

Scott, Will, and I discuss Georgia's decision to part ways with Mark Richt, what that means for us moving forward, and is Kirby Smart the right guy.

Coaching Hot Board

The administration has done the right thing in acting. I'm not saying I approve of the move, but making it now,instead of a week or a month from now, is the right thing if you are going to make a move. Hopefully, there is a plan in place to get a solid coach.

My top choices:

Tom Herman - HC Houston, OC at Ohio State under Meyer. Hottest of the hot young coaching prospects. His teams turn out points. My concern about him is he has no connections to the Southeast. The upside is he's worked Texas plenty, so there is a solid base of players he could connect with there. Get the right recruiting guys in as coordinators and that isn't a huge deal.

Gary Patterson - HC TCU. Take what I said about Herman, add 15 years of HC experience, and all of that time in Texas as both pro and con.

Larry Fedora - HC UNC. What he's done at UNC this season is impressive. What he did at Southern Miss is probably more impressive. Offensive minded coach who is pretty good at finding coordinators to compliment his coaching style, which is very different from Mark Richt's.

Mike Bobo - Colorado State HC. If Herman is to be considered after one season at the helm, I have to consider Mike Bobo. Yes, Herman has had a better year, but he was also left with much better talent.

Mario Cristobal - Alabama Offensive Line coach, former HC at Florida International. Strong Florida ties and offensive minded coach. I'm a little concerned about what happened at Florida International. Another big personality coach who is different from Mark Richt in personality.

Kirby Smart - Alabama DC. I think we've all been down this road. If he gets the right staff, this could be a good hire.  If we think we are a program that deserves a better coach than one that wins just 74% of his games over 15 seasons, we should be a program that hires higher than a coach with no HC experience.

Clay Helton - Southern Cal interim HC and OC. He's got more HC experience than Kirby.

Dan Mullen - Mississippi State HC. Give him credit, what he's done at Mississippi State is impressive.

Chip Kelly - Philadelphia Eagles HC. Hell, why not? If he's coming back to the college game, you have to think it's either UGA or Southern Cal, right?

All of this is to say we'll hire someone that none of us have thought of.

Breaking: Mark Richt out

Developing story, obviously...

Full release here. 

Fan poll

But you promised me everyone wanted him gone......
There are plenty of us that aren't happy with how this season played out, but also see the value in what Mark Richt brings to the table. I just think the loudest are those that want him gone.

Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown.

Or something:
"I didn’t say a word," Ganus said. "I just signaled incomplete and I saw a flag at my foot. I told someone else I’m not going to bash the refs. Coaches weren’t mad, so that’s a sign I probably didn’t do anything wrong."
I get it, but what Jake did is being done on nearly every play. It was a terrible call, at a terrible place in the game. That is the kind of call by ACC refs that gets Dawgnoxious very fired up.

Shouldn't have made fun of the dog


Jasper was down.

And for good measure, to Hell with Tech.

SEC Power Poll, Week 12

  1. Alabama - Remember when the dynasty was over? Good times.
  2. Florida - All you need to know about the SEC is that the second best team probably should have lost to FAU.
  3. Mississippi State - I'm not willing to listen to anyone about the Heisman if they don't consider Dak Prescott a threat to be invited to New York.
  4. Mississippi - Give Ole Miss credit, when they are on their meds, they are a lot of fun to be around.
  5. Tennessee - It feels to me like the Vols are a fumble and a fourth down pass away from questioning if Butch Jones is the right guy for the job.
  6. Georgia - Amazing how many folks miss Mike Bobo now.
  7. Arkansas - You definitely want to go to a music festival with Arkansas, because it will always end in epic fashion.
  8. LSU - It is funny to me that so many fans forget LSU is where they are because of what Les Miles has done in the last ten seasons.
  9. Texas A&M - Give A&M credit, they did a good job against Vandy's defense.
  10. Auburn - Auburn is lucky they got Idaho instead of Georgia Southern in the SEC-Sun Belt Challenge.
  11. Vandy - I was surprised Vandy didn't play four QBs against A&M in their loss this week.
  12. Missouri - With Arkansas on tap and a bowl bid at stake, I'd expect some end of game shenanigans this week.
  13. Kentucky - I, for one, am ok with Kentucky beating Louisville and getting bowl eligible.
  14. South Carolina - Portland State would have embarrassed the Gamecocks.

Two turnovers

When you put the ball on the dirt and have it returned for a TD, that's how you end up in overtime against a team you should beat by 20. Add in a fumble inside the ten and that's all you need to know.

And before you go all 'but it's Georgia Southern,' don't mistake them for the DI-AA team we saw last. They played very strong defense. With our offensive philosophy, those two mistakes can make a swing. Even with their muffed punt, we are not equipped to sling the ball around.

The disappearance of our South Carolina offense if baffling to me. We ran a few of those plays, and it looked like they were open much of the night. And the dropped passes.

As you can tell, this is more of a stream of consciousness rant than anything. I'm happy for the win. Do not misunderstand that. The defense played really well. The offense looked good for long stretches. I just don't get why it isn't sustained. I suspect some of that is offensive line play, combined with whatever limitations we have placed on us by the QB situation, compounded by guys dropping drive extending passes.

UGA vs. Tech Kickoff set

We'll take on Tech in Atlanta at noon. ESPN2 will televise.
