As you readers know, there is no one that has been more of a Mark Richt critic than yours truly. However, these people calling for coaches to be fired and for a house cleaning after Game 1 are just complete and utter morons.
Let’s just say UGA had beaten Clemson this weekend, we would still be up a creek if we lose to South Carolina. I promise you that the SEC Champion will be making the trip to Pasadena and what happened last Saturday changes none of that. As CorbinDawg said, Georgia-Clemson was nothing more than a glorified exhibition.
So while losers like Bill Shanks are already spouting off their Richt can’t win the big game garbage, what will they say when we beat South Carolina Saturday. I will tell you this, despite the glamour of the ABC Primetime showcase, the bigger game for this season is a game on ESPN that starts at the obscure time of 4:30 p.m. And if UGA wins it, Mark Richt will have won the biggest game between now and December 8th of the 2013 season.
