From the Macon, GA ppr early this morning:
They said he was "coaching scared," going for the FG with 4th & inches vs UCF. Also every time they faced a good defense they "choked."
Granted it was a substandard UGA team this yr compared to past yrs. but they had a healthy A.C. Green & numerous chances to win their bowl game.
Richt was already on the hotseat per most preseason lists including this College FB pg on NFLDC. The fact that the recruiting at Athens has tanked compared to past yrs (UGA had a #1 overall NFL draft selection in Stafford) as a consequence of poor game day performances & especially that 11 UGA players made a police blotter somewhere this last yr. + the criticism launched by many of his pressuring his players to attend his own church's services with him 4-5 yrs. ago are major factors that could very well put an end to the Richt regime.
UGA is a large, wealthy SEC program that was a former perennial contender that won't take a hit of this magnitude in its pride suffered this season. They are rumored to already be going after UGA alum & Alabama DC Kirby Smart for the 2nd time in 12 mos, this time with a HC offer. (espn.com colege FB with an insider story here).
I think Richt is done.
