Smart Football Weighs in on Mark Richt's Decision Not to Spike the Ball

Chris Brown defends the reasonableness of the decision and the overall quality of Mark Richt's clock management. So there, haters! Go 'Dawgs!

There is winning at ALL cost...and then there is winning at NO Cost

Coach Mark Richt shows the College Football World that you can do the latter. Great read, whether you share his faith or not, there is no reason to deride him (like many in the SEC do) for keeping his job in perspective, despite the pressure and criticism in a rabid SEC football world.

Mark Richt Hires New Director of On-Campus Recruiting

Daryl Jones has spent the last 17 years as a high school football coach and athletic director in the state, at Glynn Academy, Griffin High School, Wayne County High School, North Oconee High School, Oconee County High School, and Grayson High School. He was named the Georgia high school athletic director of the year in 2005, and he has managed Under Armour camps and combines (including seven-on-seven projects), as well as coaching in the Under Armour All-American Game. Basically, Mark Richt has just made a hire analogous to the one Mr. Sanchez (correctly) keeps urging Mark Fox to make. Go 'Dawgs!

Mark Richt and Todd Grantham Agree to Contract Extensions

Mark Richt has agreed to a three-year contract extension, through 2016, and Todd Grantham has agreed to a two-year contract extension, through 2014. Go 'Dawgs!

Mark Richt Has Grown a Beard

I am ordering my tickets to next year's national championship game now! Go 'Dawgs!

Mark Richt Was Never in College Station

I'm telling you, he's not going anywhere. (Hat tip: Senator Blutarsky.) Go 'Dawgs!

Confrontation Occurs; Georgia Coach Automatically Assumed to be in the Wrong

I read Dr. Saturday daily, I'm a big fan of Matt Hinton, and I have no major quarrel with Graham Watson's work generally, but this is the second time Watson has pointedly sided against a Georgia coach in a situation where, to put it delicately, it was far from clear that the Georgia coach was in the wrong. I hope it's just coincidental, but it's genuinely vexing. Go 'Dawgs! Auburna delenda est!

If You Wonder Why Georgia Fans Are So Mad About Last Saturday . . .

. . . just read the article linked to above. Dr. Saturday is one of the best college football weblogs out there (and it should be noted that Matt Hinton didn't write this), but the popular media meme has taken hold even in that most respected corner of the blogosphere. The video of James Franklin's tirade during the postgame handshake, which shows Mark Richt conducting himself with class and underscores the extent to which Coach Franklin was the instigator of the whole thing, is distorted to suggest that Coach Richt expected his defensive coordinator to tee off on an opposing coach. A comparison is then drawn to last year's incident in Jacksonville. Last year, you will recall, Todd Grantham directed an inappropriate gesture and an inappropriate remark toward an opposing player. He was wrong to do so, and I said so at the time. Last Saturday, James Franklin directed an inappropriate gesture and an inappropriate remark toward an opposing player. He was wrong to do so, and Todd Grantham said so at the time. The proper comparison to what Coach Grantham did last year is to what Coach Franklin did last Saturday, not to what Coach Grantham did in response. If such basic facts are being missed even by weblogs typically as keenly perceptive as Dr. Saturday, well, the rest of the world shouldn't wonder why Bulldog Nation is as incensed as Coach Grantham. Coach Franklin is the bad guy here. Fight the real enemy! Go 'Dawgs!

Vandy Fans Are Glad We Won

They think that, if we'd lost, Mark Richt would have been fired, and we'd have hired James Franklin away from the Commodores. That is pure delusion. Go 'Dawgs!
