The Georgia Bulldogs weren’t National Title Contenders this year, but I think everyone thought the Dawgs would be better than 5-5. Most pundits thought Georgia could at least contend for the East. We needed luck at best to do that.
As bad as it was for the Bulldogs, things are far worse for the Dallas Cowboys. Monday, Wade Phillips was mercifully let go.
This brings an interesting question up: Todd Grantham, former Cowboys defensive line coach, left Big D to be the new Defensive Coordinator for the Bulldogs. Grantham’s successor, Paul Pasqualoni, was named interim Defensive Coordinator due to Phillips’ dismissal.
Grantham is a former NFL DC. There is something about the NFL that lures guys back in (Carroll, Saban, Van Gorder). NFL “guys” love the NFL. I wonder on Saturday, if Auburn hangs 50+ on us, Coach Grantham will look up at the score board and have the thought “If I just stayed my f#$!$#% @$$ in Dallas, I could have another shot of being a DC in the NFL right now.”
I ask this: what is better, being a DC for a bad NFL team or being the DC for a mediocre college team?
