Well I would sure hope UGA could win one before USC; UGA lands much better players on a more consistent basis than USC, although USC has closed the gap considerably.

USC was a below .500 football program all-time when Spurs took over; so if we're just talking about coaching ability, what Spurs has accomplished at USC already eclipses anything Richt has done at UGA, even though Richt has a couple of SEC titles. UGA always has top 5-10 classes; USC's classes usually hover around #20.

If you look at UGA's recruiting while Richt has been there, it's been as good as anybody that's played for and/or won NC's during the same time period; but he just doesn't get it done.

I'm one of those people who feels like an SEC head coach still needs to have a ruthless-gene to truly be successful here and get the most out of his talent so they play to their potential.

As competent as Richt is, he simply doesn't have that in him; if you think back about the coaches who've won titles recently, they've all had that attitude of when you have them down and your foot on their neck, you twist your foot, not pick it up off their throat.

Even Meyer had that when he first got to the SEC because he was still hungry and anxious to prove his system could work here. But he lost his confidence with a single big-game loss to Bama.

Anybody who thinks UF fans ran the Meyers off is a dumbass, Gator fans and UF staff were begging him to stay; the school even coughed up a $1 million bonus to get him to coach 2010, hoping he'd get over the loss and get his mojo back... and if not it'd buy us some more time to do a coaching search.

How did he respond? He mailed it in for 2010; no fire, no heart, no respect for the fans or his employer that had just given him and his family another 7 figures to stay a few more months.

The SEC is no place for the weak; and it doesn't reward the kind or polite very often either... this is the very epitome of a dog-eat-dog athletic conference.

Here's the thing... if Richt is here for another 20-30 years I think he'd win a title or maybe two. I don't think Richt is one of those guys who wants to coach that long to begin with.  He isn't a Saban who will likely be coaching on his deathbed

I once thought this, but his latest quotes make it seem like he will do this for another 20 years if we let him.

I wouldn't be shocked to see Pruitt inherit the job if he sticks around long enough.

Please let this happen. Heck, he has totally changed our program already, so he might as well be the head coach.

Lmao

so there's a guy with exactly one year DC experience who has never coached a game at UGA and the fans are already begging him to take the HC position?

In a short period of time, he has revitalized our recruiting efforts, strength and conditioning goals, practice organization, and gotten rid of head cases. Some guys simply have head coach written all over them.

We are now hearing about the differences between Grantham and Pruitt, and its pretty eye opening:

1. He did change strength and conditioning, but in a way that went against the fast paced trends in CFB.
2. He did change our practice organization, but in a way that limited reps for backups.
3. He did recruit well, but only at one position which was OLB.
4. He didnt rid the roster of head cases.

Our head coach just went along with the flow, and now he is again.
