Obviously, at the end of the seasons, Alabama has been on the Big Stage in Big Bowl games with everyone watching them – and winning.
Obviously, at the end of all of Mark Richt seasons, we have NOT been on the Big Stage in Big Bowl games no one watching us.
Let alone won one.
My concerns are on forced passing downs, us converting on 3rd Down – since we have FAILED against 4 cupcakes.
And, being schooled on Special Teams.
There also is no question that Mark Richt has not enjoyed the success of Wally Butts in the Big Bowl Games on the National Stage everyone watching, nor has he enjoyed the success of Nick Saban in the Big Bowl Games on the National Stage everyone watching.
As a matter of fact, Mark Richt has not even played in one, let alone won any.
It’s a shame really. When Mark Richt got here, he did really well.
That was a long time ago.
