Mark Richt doesn't want to win

We could point out how Marc Deas transferring and Derrick Lott transfering leaves us short handed, and the hand wringing involved with, as of now, just 73 scholarshipped players who signed letters of intent. But we've had this stance for a long time,that we are a program that loves to take the moral high ground and shoot ourselves in the foot. We can enjoy the moral victory of "we don't oversign", and rewarding hard working walk ons, but our signing day numbers have been hurting this program. We said on signing day this year, we needed more DBs and OL. We had the room, we just didn't use it. We could have been signing towards 88 or 89 for years, instead of to 85 or less, and let the inevitable annual attrition take care of itself. But we don't, and that leaves us short handed. It also keeps us from taking chances on a couple kids that just may pan out in to big time contributors (like last second signees Kenarious Gates and Tim Jennings, among others, have become). Georgia football voluntarily puts itself in a worse position time and time again. And this rumor of having a drug test when kids returned from spring break only adds to it. Whether weed should be illegal or not (it shouldn't), is another debate. Whether we should suspend kids for the first failure is another debate. But picking a time where kids may have been idiots? That's shooting yourself in the foot. If we did that, without a big red flag team meeting before they left informing each and every one YOU WILL BE TESTED AFTER SPRING BREAK, then we're idiots. People love to tell us that you can't judge Mark Richt on championships, because he's a good coach without them. Maybe so, but the reason he doesn't have rings, while Saban and Meyer and Miles do, is his own damn fault. They look for ways to win, while Georgia keeps on looking for ways to lose. It's sad but true, we will not win a national title under Mark Richt. And we won't win one, because he won't allow it to happen.

  1. You left out the option of:

    We could have told them that they would get tested after spring break and they were still stupid enough to get caught.

    SOme of our players have shown on several occasions that their bulbs don't go all the way to a full deck.

    1. You honestly think Ogletree and Rambo would have heard that warning, be staring a high NFL draft pick in the face next spring as both are, and still put that at risk knowing they'd be caught when they get back?

    2. Dude - you ever heard Rambo talk? We're not talking about the brightest guy here. I've always thought he's the kind of kid you could tell "don't play with this loaded pistol, you'll get hurt"....and the moment you walk out of the room he will have shot himself in the foot. I love the ROP pundits who have convinced themselves that Lott and Deas are the intentional culling of "lesser" talent by a "New World Order" coaching staff lead by the evil Mark Richt. What a freaking joke! Answer this one question: We have a depleted secondary, have signed a less than desirable JUCO DB out of desperation, kicked off at least two and will likely suspend three others leading up to September....do you really think Deas "wanted to leave due to lack of playing time" regardless of whether he was worthy or not? He's a warm body - of which, we have few. His possibility of EXTENSIVE playing time was extremely good! Can you splain his departure? Wait, he's less capable than Sailors, Bowman, Capella, Norman or Harrow? How anyone is allowed to leave this team voluntarily due to concern over playing time is inconcievable - dope smoking, beating up girlfriends, possession of, theft, scooter incidents, DUI, drunken stoopers inside a bar restroom, etc....your playing time always comes at UGA under Mark Richt!

      Sanchez, once again you are EXACTLY right. A title will NEVER occur under Mark Richt.

  2. Beating a dead horsesass, our Prez wants to be thought of as a leader. He has a position or did on the Knight Commission which basically wants to kill big time athletics, particularly football. One of their proposals is to reduce the number of football scholarships. Conspiracy now. MA can puff out his considerable ego and point to how "his school" can win without having 85 scholarships. GM acts as much as Adam's tool as DE ever did. And I agree with your assessment of MR, but it all stems from Michael Adam$.

    1. I'd have hoped that when Emmert beat him for the NCAA Pres gig, and he lost all chance at it, he'd have curtailed his "LOOK AT ME, I"M A CRUSADER FOR THE CAUSE" behavior. I guess not. Once owned by the political beast, always owned by the political beast.
