Kirby also CALLED THE PLAYS on defense at Alabama for 8 years as their Defensive Coordinator, not Nick Saban – half of the time of which he was National Champion during which said time Mark Richt was here the same 8 years yet Mark Richt was not even ranked half of those last 8 years here in the Final AP Poll Top 25. Kirby called the plays on defense for us as a player and was 1st team All-SEC Kirby. Mark Richt was never anything but a God Damn BACK-UP. Wally Butts also was a great player. Then he was championship high school coach everywhere he went then he came here and the legend grew as with Kirby. Not so much Mark Richt.
We FIRED Mark Richt because he could not win the big games and lost to a cupcake or 2 every year too. Mark Richt’s last 8 years here he averaged 4 losses per season 32 losses his last 8 years. Do NOT begin to tell me Mark Richt is or was a great football coach.
After our Athletic Director here fired Mark Richt Mark Richt was then run out of town on a rail by the athletic director at Miami of Florida back-to-back.
Mark Richt did not care about winning. Vince Dooley wanted to keep Jim Donnan as coach. Mike Adam$ insisted Vince Dooley replace Jim Donnan. This is widespread knowledge.
Mark Richt was NOT groomed to be head coach by Bobby Bowden who himself was FIRED with CAUSE from Florida State. He was NOT prepared to be a head coach by disgraced Bobby Bowden.
2002 The SEC was down. A 5-loss Arkansas was Mark Richt’s opponent in The SEC Championship Game then Mark Richt played 5-loss Bobby Bowden in the bowl game 2002-2003 season. I am sorry that is NOT great. Mark Richt 2002 was zero for thirteen on 3rd down conversions against our # 1 Rival Florida 2002 and LOST to a Florida team he should NOT have lost to. He did that a lot losing to Florida teams he should not have lost to.
2005 Mark Richt was ranked third of just SEC teams IN EVERY SINGLE solitary poll for the 2005-2006 season. Mark Richt LOST to Florida Auburn and West Virginia. That’s great ? God damn fool.
2011 Mark Richt LOST 4 games. He averaged 4 losses his entire last 8 years here. THIS is NOT ONLY NOT GREAT but what the dip shit did here.
And at Miami.
2012 Mark Richt LOST to South Carolina 7-35. This too is what Mark Richt did embarrassing us in big games. Not just the cupcakes he lost to every year and he did that too. But losing the big games and getting blown-out. 2012 Mark Richt 3 times told little Aaron Murray to NOT SPIKE THE BALL so we would have 3 plays at the end toward the end zone instead of one. Dumbass.
Despite all the talent we handed Mark Richt that he could NOT win the big games is well-documented. His losses to CUPCAKES every year too – sometimes more than one is inarguable as well. Kirby has BETTER TALENT than Mark Richt. I said that would happen too that great football players want to play on winning teams. Mark Richt lost those games and therefore lost out on those players. Look at Kirby’s top end talent.
145 wins in 15 seasons clearly is NOT averaging 10-win season. Moreover these have been 15-game seasons for the top teams. 10-wins is shitty. Kirby averages 12-wins the last several years. I said this too before I fired Mark Richt right here. You tried to shut me up. You failed at that didn’t you Joe Vitale ?
2015 Mark Richt did NOT win 10 games but was FIRED summarily by AD Greg McGarity with 9 wins. He LOST 4 games 4 games on the average for his final 8 seasons here and was FIRED for it. There were 28 teams ranked ahead of Mark Richt 2015. With all that talent. Blown-out by Alabama 10-38. LOST to the vols who should have had 5 losses themselves. And LOST to Florida 3-27 in yet ANOTHER BLOW-OUT of Biblical Proportions when Mark Richt inserted a back-up QB who had not thrown one pass all season and threw 4 interceptions never to be removed by Mark Richt. The dumb shit.
Mark Richt is currently RUN OUT OF TOWN ON A RAIL by BOTH his only athletic directors whom he reported to as head football coach a profession which he does NOT excel at and doesn’t give a shit about Joe Vitale. Do NOT tell me how great he was. Rank him ahead of multiple national championship Wally Butts who is in the College Football Hall of Fame. Mark Richt NEVER will be.
Stick it up your dumbass asshole Joe Vitale.
You misrepresented that TOTALLY Joe Vitale like you always do.
6 National Championships UGA in Football Mark Richt none. Ever anywhere.
63 of Mark Richt’s last 146 signed scholarship recruits either flunked-out were kicked-off failed to qualify never showed-up or quit 43% from 2010 to 2015 just were NOT HERE for Kirby.
What does Coach Kirby Paul Smart have to do to be better than his predecessor over his last 8 years – for which his predecessor was FIRED ?
Senator Bluto said at the time : “don’t think losing his job this year. (Nov ’15) can’t deny was decision that couldn’t be justified.Again not saying you can’t make a case that he didn’t deserve to lose his job.”
Yes this blog said that he would be fired and needed to be. Every post I wrote after 2008 blowout by Alabama over us after 22 of our players celebrated being ranked # 1 preseason said FIRE MARK RICHT. Didn’t it Joe Vitale ?
Don’t get me started Joe Vitale you dumb shit.
You are a LIAR Joe Vitale.
Wally Butts has 4 SEC Championships when The SEC was good and multiple National Championships including 1942 and 1946 National Championships. Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall is dedicated to these major achievements by this man.
One is a College Football Hall of Fame coach Wally Butts who won big games with national championships and the other Mark Richt never did a damn thing anywhere and you think he’s great.
Mark Richt LOST 18 of his last 24 games against the top 15. Also 2008 to 2015 Mark Richt lost to twelve (12) unranked teams time game or season. You think you can tell us now that’s great Joe Vitale. You want your son to play for that coach ?
