Default How Mark Richt Got Fired

http://www.ajc.com/sports/college-fo...NjnicxcwM8ZvK/

Interesting read, I wonder if things would be any different here if we had gotten Kirby Smart instead of Champ? I doubt it, with the talent available here versus what was waiting at UGA I don't see any different outcome here with Smart as the coach. The same if Champ went to UGA.

Default Re: How Mark Richt Got Fired

All these what if scenarios omit the differences in demographics. No matter what coach we or GA has, we are faced with the fact that the Atlanta metro area has more people than the entire state of SC. GA has twice the population that SC has. Plus add into the equation that our largest bordering city is Charlotte while GA has Jacksonville and Tallahassee.

Our facilities match or exceed that of most of the power 5 schools and we have a top notch coaching team. So play whatever what if scenarios that may intrigue those that want to get tickled by what it could be if.....but the fact is that we have a much smaller talent pool than some of our top competitors. Some schools in similar circumstances have realized this and focused their attention on getting recruits from anywhere in the country. I think we have only recently started to stretch our recruiting territories.

Kirby needs only to show up for work each day, the recruiting at UGA runs itself.

Real test for Smart will be in a couple of years. Right now he is coaching mostly Richt’s players. Doing a fine job at it. But can he maintain success?

Based off of them bringing in an incredible class this year, my guess would be yes he can maintain.

Given they fired Richt for averaging 10 wins a season, or something close to that, it will be interesting to watch how they handle Smart.

Regardless of what they have coming in, I think this was their year to win it if they were going to. Gonna be hard to replace/reload that backfield and I believe their D is losing a bunch as well.

I saw somewhere that they were losing 23 seniors plus a few juniors going pro. Even with the top class in the country next year might be tough. Smart fell into a gold mine last year and he knew it.
After the game Monday night I wondered if Richt called Smart and offered him a job because knowing the UGA fans, they might want to fire him for not winning the big game.

I can't believe how much credit Kirby Smart is getting for mainly mark Richt's team. I do think that ks will be with uga for some time but getting to the playoff this soon has set him up for failure with that fan base if he can't reconstruct some more magic with only his guys.

That's a lot of key players. They had a lot of good players on both sides of the ball.

Agreed! They missed the boat and choked. Something about these GA teams (Falcons, Dawgs).

Great point about GA Fans, as they always think that they will be NC after beating a few cupcakes and then when reality steps up and they lose a few, now everyone wants to fire the Head Coach.

Georgia always will recruit in the Top Ten or better each year. They will always win around 9 or 10 games a year which would be good enough at most other schools except GA where they really think that they are the Alabama of the East.

2018 will be the real test for Coach Kirby Smart. He is losing a lot of great talent off of a team that really was a "Mark Richt Team". If Georgia comes out slowly and loses a few close ones, Georgia fans will be calling for Kirby Smart's head in "A New York Minute". They are not the most patient fans in the world and as I stated earlier they still believe after one very good year that they are back on equal footing with Alabama. I see them, I speak with a lot of Georgia fans daily, weekly, and they are the most delusional fans in the entire SEC.

South Carolina is far better off getting Coach Will Muschamp and this great staff that he has put together. The great strides our football team has done in only two years in the SEC is remarkable when the rest of the SEC and nation thought we were done when Coach Spurrier left us. USC should be an outstanding team in 2018 and even then it will be "a tough row to hoe each week", but Coach Muschamp has our team believing in what they are teaching and he has recruited some very good players that fit into the system that he and his staff need to be the team that Coach Muschamp wants. I see our future as bright as anyone else in the SEC for a while now.

They had 11 returning starters on D, 7 Seniors and 4 Juniors that could turn pro. Ouch.

Alabama has been recruiting at a (slightly) higher level for years, so they are not going anywhere. But UGA has been getting strong classes and they had the #1 class this year. They will be a major contender for years to come - but maybe not next year.

Georgia will be fine. They're still loaded with talent, Smart is a top tier coach and Fromm will be even better next year.
