I came across an old post that linked to an article our friend Bill Shanks wrote after the embarrassment that was the 2010 Liberty Bowl. Following that loss and the 2 more to open the 2011 season, fans were in full on panic mode, and rightfully so.
But Shanks is a clown with zero credibility. He has a personal vendetta against Richt, and hasn’t been able to let it go, despite the fact that Mark Richt has gotten the UGA program turned back around.
It is one thing to have concerns and another thing to say stuff like this (from January 2,2011):
There is no reason to believe Richt can turn this around. The talent level is so far off that even Central Florida looks far superior to Georgia. Georgia is, at best, the seventh best program in the SEC right now, and that’s just not good enough. And there’s nothing to show it’s going to get better overnight.
It’s now not a question of if Richt will be let go, but when. Athletics director Greg McGarity says Richt will be back in 2011, but it’s just delaying the inevitable. A year from now, McGarity will be looking for a new head coach.
And since then, there has been no mention of a mea culpa.
Not that anyone really expects one.
