Between now and the time we wake up on November 27, 2011 Mark Richt has to find six wins in these eight games and the ones in bold and all caps HAVE to be among the six.
A loss to New Mexico State makes Null and Void anything else done this year but the chances of that happening are impossible.
A loss to Vanderbilt or Kentucky- see above.
Richt cannot lose to a fourth new coach at Florida.
A loss to Georgia Tech causes rumblings no matter what.
Should Richt find six wins but one of those six is not Florida he is not automatically out the door. Richt can save his job. Heck, Richt has had the power to save his job ever since all this hot seat talk started. The problem is that Richt is not willing to do what he knows must be done. Mark Richt is not willing to demote or fire Mike Bobo. Also, he continues to turn a blind eye to the concept of Strength and Conditioning. An 8-4 record or even 9-3 with one of the three being Florida will place Greg McGarity in a difficult place. His options will include offering Richt the chance to stay but on the condition that McGarity fires Bobo and revamps the S&C program.
