This opinion has been stated ad nauseum. We get it. Richt is no longer our coach. The U Network, something that he created, will benefit untold numbers of players after their playing days are over and you stop giving a **** about them. Could you STFU and say "good job" on this one thing?No it's unfortunate that the university hired a fraud who refused to implement even the most basic fundamentals of football, practiced blatant nepotism, and didn't hold anyone accountable.
Why don't you talk about everything you've done for the program?No it's unfortunate that the university hired a fraud who refused to implement even the most basic fundamentals of football, practiced blatant nepotism, and didn't hold anyone accountable.
I mean, this is nice and all, but vast majority of what you're saying here was Blake James not Richt.Say what you want, but the guy built some desperately needed infrastructure here. He somehow got the BOT/School to finally spend on the football team, he got a IPF built in 2 years, and made The U feel like a cool place to be again. Not to mention, the guy got fans to show. You can shove it with the "new stadium" is the reason more people showed, no, because the stadium was always in the same location. Dude made our fan base more active even as we went a disappointing 7-5. Going 7-5 with any other coach here and the stadium would of been a graveyard, period. Ask Shannon, Golden what the attendance were after their 7-5 seasons.
Richt isn't a championship level coach but that doesn't mean he isn't a program builder.
