Dawgageddon: Mark Richt on the hot seat?

Written by Juan Cena on Wednesday, May 05 2010 and posted in SWRT



Mark Richt on the "hot seat" rumors seem to be showing up more often these days. Heck, this little feature used to be called the "Mark Richt Hubris Watch," for crying out loud. Though logic finally prevailed and "Dawgageddon" became a more reasonable (and funner) title.
That doesn't stop stories questioning Richt's future elsewhere. Such as this little gem from the Montgomery Advertiser.

Richt is an incredible man and Christian example. But you start to wonder how much patience fans and administration will have this season if losses, personnel problems, player defections, and off-the-field incidents continue to dominate the news.
Heading into this season, there's no coach in SEC on a hotter seat than Richt.


The "off-the-field incidents" mentioned apparently being the Zach Mettenberger, debacle. Which wasn't even the most notorious example of a quarterback acting like a doofus in the state of Georgia this year (that Big Ben dude). Even with that and other incidents involving UGA players, the program is barely in consideration for the infamous EDSBS "Fulmer Cup." And it pales in comparison to Oregon's issues with their Insane Clown Posse.
Matt Hinton over at Dr. Saturday has a more sober look at Richt's situation. he compares the situation with those of Tommy Tuberville and Phillip Fulmer, who were let go in 2008 with 5-7 records. So far, Richt hasn't had one of those. Also, Richt doesn't have the "doesn't play well with others" issues like Tuberville, or the ability to make enemies like Fulmer.
A very disastrous season may cause Richt some issues. But otherwise his job is probably secure for another year or two. It would probably that a series of 7-5 or 6-6 reasons to really make things warm behind Richt's desk.
