Vol, dawg and barn fans should be patient and support their HC's cause they'll get the job done eventually. Give them lots of time. All of this talk about firing these guys will not help your situation. Be positive on the air waves and the blogs. Being negative won't help anything. These HC's will win at some point in time, but more importantly they're teaching their players how to be outstanding citizens and students in the classroom. Get some perspective people!
Richt has no business being mentioned in the same breath as those 2. JMO.
Every year after a bad loss uga fans want to burn Richt at the stake. He's a good coarch and a good Christian man.
No Richts an average coach and fake Christian. Still light years ahead of Dooley and Chizik.
Them's fightin words.
You might have a point on Dooley.
Sorry. Chizik gets no points for Cam. He didn't even recruit Cam.
The story goes Chizick went to scout another player at Cam's JUCO and found him. So Chizick found Cam and signed him.
Add Bo Pelini to that list.
Ok....Chizick and Richt head to head.
Agree with OP. Give these guys lifetime contracts. I will hate seeing any of them go.
Please keep these three around for as long as possible.
The Rest of the SEC
Richt since 2008 has beaten two teams that finished with over 8 wins
0-11 vs SEC ranked
2-16 overall ranked
1-14 vs reg season ranked
You really can't judge the man off of that. Look at how many 10 win seasons he's had. And even better how many souls he's saved by introducing them to his religious beliefs.
I agree. Personally, I love the guy. He's a great man.
Absolutely! Wins and Losses mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. UGA should be thankful they have such a great man as a HC with high morals, unlike Bammer.
Damn, I can't believe those numbers. So Richt is great at beating who is supposed to beat but can't out coach better teams.
But Georgia put up a fight in losses to Bama in 2008 in the second half, Florida in 2008 with the 2 field goals, and South Carolina last weekend with the final offensive drive.
Do you know what his early 2000's road SEC record was in the David Greene era when UGA was competing for East titles and the conference was comparatively irrelevant?
I say keep him.
Dooley is the son of a champ and Chizik hand crafted a championship team/season and has recruited and developed the right kind of players better than anyone. Those are lifers without even getting into numbers.
Dooley just came out of hip surgery he will be watching from the press box this weekend
Probably has a better chance of Catching Brays out of bounds passes from up there. Good choice Dooley!
Please please please keep these coaches! Especially Richt! With the talent in the state of Georgia if you put an elite coach in there they could be DANGEROUS!
$50 bet with Rebels10 - Best of 3 Egg Bowls
**the $50 goes to others schools athletics dept**
I dare someone try to argue with this. I DARE YOU!
i honestly hope you arent serious with this thread. Richt has had several 10 win seasons that is true but i would like to point out that it is Georgia, i could win 10 games at Georgia. He is great at recuiting and developing but not coaching. and as far as his helping kids and all do i need to point out Georgia's arrest record? he has more players arrested each year than wins it seems. Chizik has taken a good program left by Tubberware and run it into the ground. where are you getting that he has developed talent? congrats he won a Naty with Newton, Dyer, Farley, Ziemba, and Clayton.....i mean not exactly a hard team to win with even though he almost coached his way out of several wins. Those two need to be let go in my opinion, while Richt is good at building a program he cant get over the hump, mediocre coach, great recruiter. Chizik all around bad hire. Jury is still out on Dooley in my opinion, give him a couple more years, TN is showing signs of being on the verge of being relevant again
What have you been smoking sir?
No, you couldn't win 10 games at UGA. You probably can't even chew gum and walk at the same time, much less run a successful program in the SEC. Richt has done it successfully. He's won a SEC championship as well. If that's not getting over the hump I don't know what is. Yes, Richt has had some players get in trouble, but almost all of them have learned from their mistakes cause Richt has showed them the straight and narrow. Hate the sin not the sinner.
And Chizick has run Auburn's program into the grown? Are you serious? He just won a NC two years ago! Auburn is having a rough start this year but Saban couldn't win 2 games with their young roster. Chizick is doing an outstanding job at Auburn. And yes he's outstanding at developing talent. All of the players you listed were scrubs before Chiz got a hold of them. Dyer was a average RB in HS. Cam couldn't complete a forward pass before he got to auburn. Fairly was a 3 star JUCO OL before Chiz turned him into an unblockable tackling machine. And Ziemba was a human turnstile during Tubby's tenure.
I agree on Dooley. He needs more time to recruit his players. Kiffin left that place in shambles.
