Bobo being taken for granted?

Let’s throw it out there. Mike Bobo is a massive lightning rod when it comes to the UGA football program. Mention his name and you’ll either have fans talk about how great he or how he needs to lose his job (which I still fail to understand, for what it’s worth).

Georgia, however, is running a high risk of neglecting Bobo. There was recent news that Bobo received a contract extension, but a pay raise was not included.

Look, I get the fact that the defensive staff has to be offered more to lure them in, and I have no issue with that. If Pruitt and Company produce, they are worth every penny.

But when you have a coach such as Mike Bobo, whose offense is the only reason that this team was a national title contender two years ago and made itself a factor for Atlanta again this year, you have to, as they say, “Pay the man.”

And then there is the fact that Georgia’s upswing in South Georgia recruiting has a lot to do with Bobo.

Bobo is a loyal guy to both Georgia and Mark Richt. But when you underappreciate someone long enough, the end result is that person making an easy decision to leave.

Let’s hope it never comes to that.

Go Dawgs!

    I completely agree with your comments. It’s one thing to pay for what we hope will pay off in defense, it’s another to pay for what has been proven effective in the past and ongoing future. Let’s show our appreciation to Bobo and the offensive staff…we have the money so let’s show our heartfelt appreciation. Go Dawgs..and keep going Bobo!! GATA!!!

    Agree wholeheartedly! Bobo deserves a raise and should be among the top paid OCs in the conference if not the land.

    Bobo’s work the last two years places him in the top 10-15 college coordinators. He deserves to be paid as such.
