Don’t Let Richt Presser Get You Up or Down

On the Blackberry, so I can’t provide links, but Coach Richt had his last press conference this morning. I am sure Seth Emerson will have all the details soon.

From what I read about on Twitter, it seems there is a lot of talk about passion, full speed, nutrition, etc…
Yada, yada, yada.

This is all stuff we have all heard before. Don’t let what he says discourage you, make you mad, or even encourage you. It is all coachspeak.

It is not what Coach Richt says to the fans or the media that will save his hide and restore UGA. It is what he says to the team and what he does between now and September 3rd that counts.

The only thing that matters is the play on the field. We are past talking about the problems, Coach. Unfortunatley, there is a long way to go until there will be any play on the field. All we have to do is talk, and the talk ain’t good.

    I like the new header, but is there something i should read into it? subliminal message……..

    Ha ha, no subliminal message. Just minor modifications. Part of running a blog. You’ll notice minor changes from time to time. Also, feel free to offer suggestions for aesthetic improvements! Love to hear what you have to say.

    I don’t know. I think Richt really needed to inspire the fan base this morning and failed to do so. While what you say is undoubtedly true, that it’s not what he says publicly that matters most, it does matter. We need to know that he understands what needs fixing and that he knows how to fix it. We need to know that he has a plan and that his plan has a good chance of success. Saying that what we saw on the field this year is not what we expect is not the same thing as saying that what we saw this year is unacceptable and won’t be tolerated. I was certainly hoping to hear a sharp, focused Coach Richt. Instead, like our Liberty Bowl performance, it sounds like what we got was vague and somewhat flat.

      I agree to an extent Paul. You are right.

      The large majority of folks are angry, and with good reason. But if he comes out and says we are going to do this, this and that, and work harder and be better leaders, etc… Folks would have said this is same old same old and we heard all this before (which we have). if he comes out like he did, then its flat and uninspiring. I think that ultimately what is going to make people happy are wins and championships.

      For me, at least, he could have said anything and it wouldn’t have made me any less mad. I need to see victories on the field and not victories in the papers.

    Perhaps I’m just picking at scabs or maybe hoping for too much. Public relations doesn’t win games. But is is part of the the job in big time college athletics. It just felt like one more detail we didn’t take as seriously as we should have. Another indicator of lack of focus. I hope I am wrong. I love Mark Richt as both a coach and a man. I want him to succeed. I am not asking for his head, or even Bobo’s. I guess I was just hoping to see some evidence of a little fire in the belly.

    Big time college football is about the big time money boys and Mike the Knife Adams. He fired Jim Donnan because Jim could not beat GT and the money boys were pissed. The only thing that has saved Mark is the fact that he has had a charmed life (Dooley’s words) when it comes to Tech. If he had gone 6-6 and lost to Tech instead of Arky or MSU or Colorado and followed it with the UCF game, he would have been gone. The AD is not going to fire Mark until Mike Adams issues the order. He has not got the power at UGA.
