The Complexity of the Richt Dilemma Part III-- If Richt Goes Who Does McGarity Call On?

Now in very un-Sports and Grits like fashion this week, we have given options for Richt to stay.  However, if we are to disect the Richt Dilemma we must address the issue of either:
a) Richt is fired, or
b) Richt refuses to accept changes and resigns, or
c) Richt retires from coaching all-together.

If the end result is that we need a new coach it will be a monumental decision for our program.  As the SEC continues to improve--it is also the case that the disparity between the haves and have nots in the SEC also grows.  We are in an advantageous situation because if we transition now we could keep pace with Florida as Tennessee slips further and further into irrelevance.  South Carolina will struggle to maintain relevance once the aging Spurrier retires, Vanderbilt and Kentucky have very low ceilings, and if a 7th team is introduced it will either be a familiar foe in Auburn or a lesser from the ACC.  The right move here, made at all costs, could put Georgia in the driver's seat in the East for the next decade.  The wrong move here could make us an every year kick-off foe for some non-SEC school to beat for street cred.
The exact issue of who that coach should be is and will be greatly debated by our fan base.  The real issue here is not so much the coach hire as it is the AD hire that has already been made.  What type of AD is Greg McGarity?  I don't know the man but I know some who do and they have the ut-most confidence in him.  He has shown me nothing to the contrary at this point and my confidence that he will make the right and best decision is 100%. 
There are essentially three types of AD in this world and they are as follows

1. GERALD MYERS-- THE DOUCHE AD.

Gerald Myers is the AD that, without properly investigating the situation, fired Mike Leach.  He is the AD that retired before the Mighty Leach's lawsuit garners a huge settlement or jury award.  He is the AD that not only decided to ruin his school's football program by firing Leach--he decided to ruin it and then drop a big ol' deuce on the ruins by making a lazy hire in T-Tubs.  He is the type of AD that is given to political wranglings, back-stabbing, caring about stupid crap that has nothing to do with football like non-revenue generating sports, he is more concerned about "public perception" than winning football games.  Gerald Myers was a Douche AD and is the type that we hope and pray McGarity is not and will never become.

2. JEREMY FOLEY- THE DEVIL AD
Never let it be said that we at S&G will not give the Devil his due.  Jeremy Foley has delivered championship after championship for the evil empire and has shown no sign of slowing down.  We would love for McGarity to be this type of AD.  One who makes calculated moves and then does everything within his power to help those moves work out for the Gators.  A Devil AD is able to manipulate a favorable "public perception" while simultaneously being a behind the scenes, win at all cost, nut-cutter.  He is the kind of AD that beautifully balances a fained care of student athlete education with the winning isn't everything it is the only thing mentality.  He is like Lucifer who is both the son of the morning star and also the physical incarnation of all that is evil.
3. MAL MOORE- THE COCK-SURE AD
If Mal Moore ran a Georgia oriented blog in which he shared his sense of humor as well as his opinion on all things college football he would run Sports and Grits.  If we were the ADs of a SEC University we would be Mal Moore.  Mal Moore wakes-up every morning and starts breaking necks and cashing checks.  Every year in January Mal Moore goes to that website that will print whatever you want on a roll of toilet paper and he orders 1,000 rolls with the exact language of Title 9 printed on each sheet.  He then eats either Mexican or Indian food for lunch every day to ensure that he never has a clean break.  Mal Moore doesn't give two craps and a Coca-Cola  about baseball, basketball, non-revenue generating sports, a relationship with the media, or basically anything that has nothing to do with Awesomeness and/or winning football games.  Mal Moore could not possibly care any less about what sort of education or future his football players have....he only cares if they win.  Mal Moore is the best AD in all college sports and by college sports we of course mean FOOTBALL!

So is McGarity a political douche, a well rounded AD, or someone who understands that all things not called football are just an unfortunate inconvenience of being a college AD. 
If he is a Douche then we are all screwed.  I have the utmost confidence however that he is not a Douche AD.
Is he an AD that can simultaneously keep all different aspects of the Athletic Department chugging along at an elite level?  Is he like the Devil AD and capable of rolling with the punches, correcting mis-steps before they become massive blunders, and maintaining the balance between appearing to care about all the stupid demands of the NCAA and the idiots in the media while always being willing to win at all costs?  If he is like the Devil AD then we are going to be just fine.
Or is McGarity a Cold-Blooded Sausage Maker?  Is he a cock-sure, pay top dollar, win at all costs in football AD?

If he is a Devil AD we are happy....if he is a Cock-Sure AD then we are about to enter the golden age of Georgia Football.

    That statement may just be the most honest undeniable opinion that has even graced this blog.

  2. Well, I don't know what category of AD G. Mac would fit. I do believe he is someone who wants to win and will do whatever he can, as long as it is legal, to win championships. I don't, however, think he has already decided that MR is NOT the man for the job as some fellow dawgs have already done. I guess time will tell.

  3. I've got an idea... I'd say he should go after you ccrider... since you know so much more about football than Mark does.....

    good luck. Gonna need to take some time off from Walmart though, just in case it doesn't work out. You'll want something to fall back on.

    Well thank you Hal I am flattered. Actually I am not legal council for Wal-Mart. I would have to live to Ar-Kansas for that, although I have filed suit against Wal-Mart before.

    Anyway, under Head Coach Rider the first order of business would be to hire Mike Leach and give him full control of the offense. I would then consider keeping Grantham but I may look in another direction. Step 3 offer Joey Batson $500K a year to run our S&C program. Step 4 hire Lil' Bebe Orgeron away from USC to run the recruiting at Georgia. Step 5 watch the Championships start a' rollin' in.

    you are a conservative,but you sound like a liberal.
    Like everyone owes you something,entitlement attitude.
    UGA means more to me, than just football. Me & my

    loose just like you. In fact,I catch allot of crap at
    work, when they don't.I wear my G with pride,win or
    loose. In fact I hope CMR get's a contract for 10
    more years.Anyway, that's how I see it. I just hope
    you have a day job. In case the RICHT hating thing
    does not work out.

  7. i am a lifelong dawg,come hell or high water,but the thing that i cant get out of my head is just how boring our football team is,whether you like coach nutt or not his play calling and the way he keeps the other team guessing is something i enjoy.cmr just seems to have lost the fire,and that has been on display for the last few years.i believe the starkeville bulldogs r going to bring it and if we play with the same manner cmr coaches, we are going to get our arse handed to us.how long has it been since ga fans have honestly been able to bow up to anybody worth a damn in the sec and expect victory?anyway,as always,hoping for the best...just not expecting it

  8. Ahhhhh, a lawyer... That explains a lot. And the fact that you sued Wally world splains even more. I agree with the anon post saying the hating richt deal won't work out for you. Just two years ago idiot LSU fans just like you wanted Les Miles gone. Be careful what you wish for in this instant gratification world we live in, you just might get it. Unfortunately this blogoshpere has given morons like yourself a voice, and people hear it... Especially recruits and their families.

    Your lawyerism doesn't impress me. I own 25 daily newspapers, 17 tv stations and 30 radio stations... Trust me, you'll need to stick to your blog because no one would ever pay you for your sports acumen or insight.

    Ahhhhhhhh a main stream media mogul. The two professions doing the most to ruin America and we can't get along........
    Ahhhhhhhh welcome to our little blog. Thanks for seeing us on a link site, clicking it, and saying the same thing that every other Richt-O-Phile has been saying for months. Guess what Hal.......we keep being right and ROPs keep getting madder.

    Now you can't be a mainstream media man and not like lawyers....who will you talk to at the next Obama/Communist fundraiser?

    Now with you owning all of this stuff you have to be a little bit older(and honestly I marvel at how you find the time to argue with us). Since you still own newspapers (and no one reads newspapers) and radio stations (since no one listens to the radio) you obviously have a hard time letting go of the past. Let me help you out Granddad. These here new fangled computer boxes is how we get our news now. Sirius/XM is how we get our music (because you get to hear more that the 15 songs your "research" says that is what people want to hear). The days of a HC getting 25 yrs at a program is long gone and over. When Dooley and Bear had those "lulls" they weren't playing in the quasi-NFL and they certainly didn't have the same number of dollars passing through their Athletic Departments.

    A media tycoon! Yesterday a ROP was pretending to be Captain America storming the beaches of Normandy.

    FYI Les Miles got a pass on account of the National Title he won.......well I guess Richt could fall back his National Ti.....oh yeah he doesn't have one does he? Since I love running a blog for the casual mouth-breather to stumble onto when they aren't out ruling the lucrative world of media--I will re-hash an old argument.
    Here are the teams who have won the SEC in the Richt era.
    1. Florida
    2. Georgia
    3. Auburn
    4. Alabama
    5. LSU
    Here is a list of teams who have won both an SEC and National Title in the Richt-era
    1. Florida
    2. Auburn
    3. Alabama
    4. LSU
    So what is missing Hal Welch?
    Your fantasy world in which you are fabulously wealthy and successful doesn't impress me. Are you sure you don't want to tell us how tough you are? Sure you don't want to challenge us to a fight/make a death threat against us? Sure you don't want to e-mail the great and mighty link site and ask that we be banned since we aren't real Georgia fans? Sure you don't want to cover all the other tired old insults we get from all the other ROPs.

    Did we say anything about leaving our blog?

    Sorry, I try to answer everyone but sometimes the mouth-breathers get our attention before reasonable people like you.

    Of course everyone wants a Jeremy Foley type as their AD. We think that McGarity's ties to Athens as well as his time at Florida with Foley made him by far the best choice. He was the best choice back when we went with Panties Glorious Panties and he was stil the best after that embarassment.
    If you read us often then you most likely get the humor. Now do I think Football should get the lion's share of attention at any big school? Sure, because it brings in the most money. The Mal Moore thing was humor because if you know anything about Mal Moore that break down was spot on.
    Look back over us for the past few days...check out the podcast located in the green box to the top right hand side. We have given the option for Richt to stay and would be fine with it under the right set of circumstances.

    Between you and me....I don't care who the coach is so long as we are winning, going at least 10-10 against Florida in the next 20 years as opposed to 2-18, and are not just competetive but a yearly threat for the SEC and National Titles. Down years happen...we get that. I could see the anger against us if we started all this after 08 or even 09. We really got cranked up after Colorado last year. One year is a down year--three years is a decline.
    Thanks for reading and I hope we continue to entertain and at times anger you.
