de facto probation

This is a pretty good article by Kipp Adams from the dawgnation page at ESPN. What stood out to me is that UGA is operating at a level 15 scholarships under the NCAA limit or, as he puts it, akin to Alabama's probationary period of the Dubose Price Francione Shula? early 2000s. Now, obviously we don't need our self-important brethren to pollute our boards with how misguided our coach's priority's are to know that this is a problem. Fifteen (15) scholarships under the limit is not the bread-n-butter that maketh a championship team. Frankly, I'd say its the type of trend that dooms a head coach no matter how well things appear to be hanging on. One may even argue that Richt is actually coaching pretty well, given this handicap, in comparison to some of our conference's predecessors who have operated under similar handicaps. The only problem is that the handicaps is self-imposed or, at a minimum, is his own problem to cure. Ultimately, he is responsible for finding the balance between old-fashioned accountability and UGA fielding a competitive roster---and by competitive, I mean in talent AND depth.....something that seems to go overlooked in all of the flashy pre-season polls and magazines. What would you do if you were the head coach and/or athletic director to solve this problem ?
