If you opened a newspaper today and looked at the SEC East standings, you’d find an unusual site: Mark Richt’s Georgia Bulldogs at the very bottom. Under Kentucky. Under Vanderbilt. Under South Carolina against whom they could only muster six points. To give you an idea how bad things have gotten for Georgia, Las Vegas has them at pick ‘em this week at Mississippi State.
As a Florida grad, I probably shouldn’t be writing this considering we haven’t been all that impressive either and we still have a game against them in late October but GOODNESS! Georgia absolutely stinks.
The Bulldogs started the season ranked just outside the Top 20 as they generally do, but in the past two weeks they rushed out of the AP rankings like they were charging a cover. It wasn’t all that long ago that this team finished the season ranked second in the nation but Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno are long gone.
In this week’s caption contest, Georgia fans can reminisce about a fonder time, in 2007, when Mark Richt, whose seat is getting hotter by the week, defeated their arch-rival Florida Gators. To this day, it remains Urban Meyer’s only loss against the Gators’ top three rivals (Georgia, Florida State, Tennessee).
Have at it football fans, and before you starting feeling bad for Coach Richt, keep in mind he’s making three million dollars this year.
