Not that this is shocking, but certain members of the media that cover the 2010 Georgia Bulldogs are starting to turn on Mark Richt. Whether you’re for or against Richt, it doesn’t matter, this is how it always works.
AJC blogger Jeff Schultz goes after the Dawgs in his latest piece. His main point is that the troubles are not isolated to a single area of the game, but are widespread, which of course is definitely not encouraging for Georgia fans.
The head coach (Mark Richt) is 2-6 in his past eight SEC games. The vaunted offensive line coach (Stacy Searels) frankly hasn’t done bupkis since his arrival, recent evidence being that his supposed top group of linemen just allowed six sacks to a projected average defense. The new defensive coordinator, Todd Grantham, isn’t looking much better than the old one (Willie Martinez).
When all of those things happen, we’ve transitioned from downward trend to potential new identity. Georgia is an average team right now.
