Maybe Richt gets a little benefit of the doubt because he's not a proven failure like the guys you mentioned. No need to dig the heels in and demand that every coach is treated exactly the same as others. Some guys have proven to better than others. If Butch Davis signs a "marginal" guy he'd get a little more leeway than Randy Shannon too.If Golden or Radio signed kids like this and Martin they would be skewered by this board for getting sloppy seconds.
At least call it the same way every time folks.
For a coach that supposedly is going to do better here b/c of an upgrade in talent from UGA, he isn't landed upgraded talent.
