LOOK: Fans rip Miami coach Mark Richt on Twitter after abysmal first half against LSU
Let’s get this out of the way first — Mark Richt is a great guy and a good football coach.
Play Underdog For Heat-Celtics Game 6! Who ya got?
OK, now that we’ve said that, let’s talk about how much Miami struggled in the first half of the Week 1 opener against LSU in Dallas.
The Tigers roared out to an early 27-3 lead, looking like the much better squad, even though Miami was ranked No. 8 and LSU was at No. 25 heading into the game.
If Mark Richt struggling against top teams sounds like a familiar storyline, then you’re probably a Georgia fan. However, Miami fans are quickly growing frustrated with Richt’s struggles against big-name opponents, too.
As you can see below, Miami and Georgia fans alike took to Twitter during the first half to commiserate about Richt’s big-game no-shows:
Stop me if you’ve heard this one.

I love Mark Richt. I absolutely think he’s the right guy to lead Miami.
But man, he needs to hire an OC. His play calling has been woeful going on 3 seasons…

Sheez…this is why Georgia fired Mark Richt.

Mark Richt and Jim Harbaugh should get together and see who can form the least competent offense.

I think Miami is going to figure out Mark Richt much faster than Georgia did.

Mark Richt never have and never win big games. Didn’t do it at UGA not doing it at Miami

My fellow UGA fans, how many of y’all remember games like this one. Got a top 10 team getting embarrassed on prime time television by a top 25 opponent. I don’t miss Mark Richt either.
