Well, I wake up and read the AJ-C Sports Section as I’ve done here every day now since the fifties, and front page Sports, there is Mark Bradley in print edition having an entire half-hour scheduled one-and-one interview with Greg McGarity, UGA Athletics Director. It goes on for 2 pages in print. 1 whole entire page.
Greg McGarity was installed as the puppet replacement for Damon Evans by the same guy who hired Damon Evans of the famous videos warning us at Sanford not to drink and drive. Mike Adam$ hired Damon Evans much to the chagrin of all Bulldogs’ fans everywhere to replace the wildly popular (still) Vincent J. Dooley who has 3 (three) national championships in football in all the same polls Georgie tek has all their nc in (although Georgie tek never has won an AP Poll nc except once in girls’ tennis long ago now) and Vince made a number of great hires. Then, Damon Evans “do you know who I am,” he whined to the Roswell Policemen, was arrested for DUI. His bimbo, like that of our next opponent Bobby Petrino coach of Louisville, got both in deep hot water.
Hot water, not unlike that of Greg McGarity and Mark Richt, today. That Greg McGarity and Mark Richt neither have bimbos is of little consolation to either on this day.
They’re both Goody Two-shoes, and this where the dissimilarity ends with Bobby Petrino and Damon Evans. Mark Richt and Greg McGarity are beyond reproach with regard to bimbos, but their efforts at winning have put both in hot water. Both are on the hot seat. Both the subject of many e-mails from supporters such as myself, and you, no doubt. Greg McGarity states he reads them and replies to many, by the way.
With Greg McGarity, there never was a good time. He came here from Florida in the off-season after the 2009 season – not a stellar year for Mark Richt and frankly neither was the 2008 either with both all the losses and all the off-field arrests and suspensions.
To begin the next season for Mark Richt, Greg McGarity was here in his current position in charge for the win over Louisiana Lafayette. Then, the dam broke for Greg McGarity, and the roof caved-in on Mark Richt.
Not that the dust has settled even yet after the Louisiana Lafayette win to begin that season when Greg McGarity was installed as our puppet-AD of Mike Adam$, the losses since have been staggering. To replace widely unpopular Mike Adam$’ previous puppet-AD, Damon Evans. “Here just let me drive the vehicle home officer, ok ? Do you even know who I am ?”
So, Greg McGarity knew coming-in, that he was taking over a football program in dire straights for 2 entire seasons before he was hired. Both of the previous 2.
Mike Adam$ was so unpopular here in The Bulldogs’ Nation that when we went to the Sugar Bowl at the Georgia Dome and sat down, we none of us could quit booing Mike Adam$ and his wife before we were behind 0-28 to West Virginia, mind you. That may seem like a long time to you 28 to nothing, but we showed-up unprepared and no game plan, unmotivated – all this while the entire Georgia Dome was rocking from the booing of Mike Adam$.
I wonder who picked up the check with Greg McGarity and Mark Bradley meeting at a restaurant downtown here in Atlanta ?
Mike Adam$ bilked us for all we were worth on such junkets.
Even double-dipping on expense reports, and later after being caught red-handed saying he would please like to re-pay that 1.
I do not know what the budget is yet for the new replacement of Mike Adam$ because he has failed to provide it, despite an e-mail to me personally and despite his URL Link to nothingness as well. Lots of fluff, and no substance. In fact, that is all Jere Morehead has done as well, replacing the wildly unpopular Mike Adam$.
So, you have wildly unpopular folks for a variety of reasons. In this case, the subject of all this interview is Mark Richt. I love the guy as a person and fellow Christian. But, we did not hire him as either of those. He is our football coach in charge of winning, not something else we adhere to here at UGA more important than winning as Mark Richt was quoted just a week ago telling us fans.
But, Greg McGarity’s failures go back all the way to after when the 2009 season of Joe Cox was over. The beginning of the 2010 season, perhaps you recall, found Greg McGarity here for the whole year in its entirety. All 6-7 of it. The loss to Colorado who fired their coach, like Florida did their coach this year. Greg McGarity and Mark Richt lost both of those games together. It’s a sordid story of their failures on and off the field together. Jere Morehead ? No comment from him ? Really ? If Mark Bradley can have this no-holds-barred interview where he does not have to kowtow to the AD to ask these questions, and the dimwit is stupid enough to show-up right now for it, why not interview Jere Morehead. Hand him this post right here. All the losses all 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and now 2014 have mounted for Greg McGarity and Mark Richt and all the arrests/suspensions/kicked-off which caused all these losses to less-talented teams. It is far from pretty the entirety of this match made in Hell of Mark Richt and Greg McGarity – Loserviille together and bad press city as well.
Mark Richt and Greg McGarity have teamed-up to be the biggest under-achievers in football history because we have had the 2nd best talent in the nation and have lost to ten (10) teams who either did not make both the AP or Coaches’ Poll for these 5 seasons they’ve been together, or the loss was to a team who was not ranked at game-time, or both, or the team did not make the AP Poll for the season.
Worse, we are only 45-21 overall during their tenure together a ludicrous puppet and a we do not even try to win because we believe in God here and that more important than winning coach. I do not know what you know about college football, but I share with you as a fan of this sport for all these years now, that 21 losses for 5 seasons is MORE than 4 Losses a Season, which is what Greg McGarity and Mark Richt have both accomplished together – not to diminish their myriad off-field bad press as well.
It’s not a pretty picture no matter how you try to paint it.
And, the same goes for Mark Richt for the years Greg McGarity was not here, after 2007 as well – the back-drop to the hire of AD Greg McGarity the horrid 2008 and 2009 seasons back-to-back.
2008 was a particularly poor season for UGA before Greg McGarity was hired, so this was there as a backdrop to his hire. We had 22 players in bar brawls pre-season 2008 being named # 1 Pre-Season Consensus in both the AP and Coaches’ Poll for the only time in school history. That very night of the polls both being released, we partied hearty. It was clearly the worst day in UGA Bulldogs’ College Football History that Saturday night before the season started when the AP Poll was released also showing us # 1. We had so many suspensions that Mark Richt was fortunate to be able to field an offense, special teams, and defense. We struggled against every team we played.
Then, having beat the teams we struggled against, we were dropped in the polls from # 1 and then we faced Alabama at our house on national TV the game-time # 6 team and we # 3. We fell behind 0-31. We do this all the time under Mark Richt, don’t we ?
We are simply frequently unprepared, unmotivated, and must be with our heads in the clouds, filled of off-season bullshit from our fan base on how great they all are, and don’t think they need to GATA. That they can just show-up and well, the worse ranked team, Alabama in this case, would just roll-over and play dead.
No, that’s UGA.
UGA is great at rolling-over and playing dead.
On the sidelines, he frequently is shown just asleep, sitting there on his bag of ice.
Mark Richt has put our fanbase asleep after 2007 similarly.
Mark Richt’s teams show up all too frequently the entire 2nd half of the Mark Richt era after 2007, asleep at the wheel, like UGA. After we lost to Alabama 2008, we lost to Florida and to Georgie tek. We were supposed to win ALL 3.
2009 was the year of Joe Cox when he was bragged about by Mark Richt and Mike Bobo yet he played with his chronic shoulder that kept him out of every 4th practice all season, and he had the flu against Okie State. We flew Joe Cox on charter flight to Stillwater because of his flu. Instead of what I called for pre-game of now NFL Zach Mettenberger, these dumbass UGA coaches told us all Joe Cox was the greatest QB on our roster. Bullshit and I said so pre-game, pre-season 2009 of Joe Cox as I did about Matthew Stafford not Joe Tereshinski III the 2006 season and as I rightfully called this season about Hutson Mason and his # 87 Passing Offense for UGA 2014 against a WEAK-ASS schedule. We also lost in addition 2009 to Okie State, to LSU, vols, Florida, and even to Kentucky. We average OVER 4 Losses a season under Mark Richt after 2007,with 29 Losses and Counting, so this 2009 season was no aberration, now was it ? 5 losses and that no aberration. Did you get that DISNEYdawgs.com Mark Richt Apologists ?
Then, this is where Greg McGarity was hired as Damon Evans’ replacement by Mike Adam$. After this horrid 2008 and 2009 on and off the field.
45-21 Greg McGarity and Mark Richt together here
45-21 Greg McGarity and Mark Richt together. Not exactly a match made in heaven, despite both being Little Miss Goody Two-shoes.
45-21 is win 2, lose 1, win 2, lose 1, win 2, lose 1 ad infinitum ad nauseam. It’s sickening with the 2nd best recruiting average ranking 2001-2015, and that as verified 2nd best nationally. For those who think the recruiting services are well just wrong. Excuse me, but Mark Richt also has 81 NFL Draft Picks 2001-2014, also 2nd best in the nation. So, if the recruiting services are wrong, so is the entire NFL.
Under-Achiever label fits ?
We have had 118 signed scholarship LOI in the Greg McGarity/Mark Richt era here, who with a redshirt season would be playing in this bowl game, only 2 SEC teams playing before us this entire bowl season. There are 14 SEC teams. 2 play before us. Of the 118 LOI Greg McGarity/Mark Richt era, 72 can play in this weenie bowl in Charlotte. Mark Bradley quotes, by the way, Greg McGarity pointing out as I that Mark Richt has lost 3 of the latest 4 bowl games. This is Greg McGarity’s Bowl Record, pardon me. And, together their collective bowl record to have lost together Greg & Mark show 3 of the 4 bowl games they’ve had.
72 of 118 signed LOI scholarship recruits all remaining for Bowl Game
These 2 together have been an abomination, both on the field winning 2 losing 1 the entire time together, but also so many arrests/suspensions/kicked-off that Greg McGarity quipped in September that there had been zero in September. 15 for the year 2014, but 0 for September. He was proud of that. I thought at the time, if he were I and I made such a statement, it would have been on Saturday Night Live in a skit making fun of UGA Bulldogs’ Football Program to make such a hyperbolic statement.
Surely, no one not making a joke would quip that we had none arrested/suspended/kicked-off in September in a year 2014 in which 15 were arrested/suspended/kicked-off. Right ?
That just means we had 1 more some 4 other months, then.
Howdy Doody couldn’t have been more funny on his best day.
Reminds me of what he said when they informed Ray Goff that he’d been elected in the Georgia-Florida Football Game Hall of Fame : “For which team?”
Seriously, Howdy Doody ?
No one has been arrested/suspended/kicked-off all September, sir ? Really ?
You’ve got to be kidding me.
This puppet, Greg McGarity, has presided over the biggest under-achiever in college football history winning 2, losing 1 for 5 seasons together with Mark Richt with the 2nd best talent nationally 45-21.
Half of the more than 4 losses a season average, have been inexplicable.
This season , for example, we lost to 2 unranked teams and another team whose recruiting ranking averages # 52 to our # 9, and we lost at home to give their coach not even a losing record at our house.
How bad is that ?
Well, Florida had lost 10 of their latest 13 games when we also lost to them, blown-out.
South Carolina to begin this mess this season has only 6 wins, same as Florida, who fired their coach.
South Carolina beat us. Everyone beat South Carolina and Florida, but us.
The damn coach has been quoted after each of the 3 losses this season.
“If I had it to do over, I’d hammer it from the 4 on 1st and goal against South Carolina giving the ball to Todd Gurley II.”
“If I had it to do over, I’d kick it deep with 13 ticks on the clock, not to the 43-yard line as a squib kick having taken the lead by 3 at home against under-manned Georgie tek.”
“As for us showing up unprepared and taking it lightly that all these football players on our team have been quoted by you to me that the whole team took Florida our # 1 Rival I Mark Richt am now 5-9 against, I can only offer to them all, shut up !”
Well, that’s what he said.
Mark Richt, not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
Joe Tereshinski III instead of NFL Matthew Stafford, seriously, Mark Richt as Starting QB son ?
Joe Cox instead of NFL Zach Mettenberger against Okie State, seriously, dumbass ?
Hutson Mason instead of future NFL Jacob Park AND Brice Ramsey, or even Faton Bauta ?
Mein Gott !
Got to be the stupidest coach and most ludicrous athletic director combination in the history of histories.
Together, the most unsuccessful combination – the most under-achieving in college football history with the most or 2nd most talent nationally in addition. Hard to imagine, isn’t it ?
Look, it’s one thing to get 1 QB wrong, but 3 ?
Look, it’s one thing to lose a game you’re supposed to win, but 10 un-ranked teams ?
3 of the 5 years, Greg McGarity has been unranked, for UGA Top 10 All-Time in Wins.
Mark Bradley got it right when he said in print AJ-C today that there are fans of Mark Richt who will support him no matter what.
There are not many left of those anymore. Their ranks have been depleted by half.
It’s gone on too long.
I supported Mark Richt 2001-2007, or at least 2001-2005 when I started to notice irregularities. We picked on opponents for bad behavior and then our fans refused to criticize us for it. We lost to top teams on the road where we used to always it seems to win those, or certainly the vast majority. The pendulum swung.
2011, we lost 4. You’d never know that talking to the still today Mark Richt Apologists. They are closet Mark Richt Apologists, mostly, now today where they say they are disappointed in his results on the field the dumbass stuff he says and does, and the off-field woes he wishes he could ignore every press conference telling the press do you want to talk football or that ? If that, I will just pack up my toys and leave. Adolf Hitler could not get away with that, but Mark Richt the Saint can ? Not in my lifetime. Thus, me. Thus, this. Thus, called out son.
2012, little Aaron Murray asks Mike Bobo and Mark Richt not once or twice but 3 times in front of me. All 3 times, they BOTH tell him no, do not spike it. Aaron Murray knew to spike it. That’s why he kept asking ?
Spike it ?
Spike it ?
Spike it ?
We just waste the talent we recruit. We are dumb.
I do not know what the AJ-C is doing any more. I think they must be charging 99 cents for this story in print thrown in my driveway today.
But this is not the story I am relating to you about.
Here, let me type how it starts out at least for you, and maybe you can find it if you are accustomed to paying for news available free on the Internet ?
“AD takes heat…”
“Amid some UGA fans’ doubts, McGarity ‘not afraid to make changes’…”
“In the days since Georgia lost to Georgia Tech, several people close to the program have suggested that all is not well in Athens, that some fans have lost faith in coach Mark Richt and doubt that athletic director Greg McGarity would be forceful enough to make such a high-profile change even if warranted”…
That this is the state of our football program, Proud Top 10 All-Time Wins’ Program UGA, is sickening. It has grown more tiresome as it has gone on for now 7 entire seasons of the 14 Mark Richt has been here now. Half the time. The 2nd Half. The most recent half. The Current 2nd Half of the Mark Richt era.
When we look at the polls on this blog, they all contradict The Mark Richt Apologists.
