What’s missing at Georgia? Absolutely nothing

 

 

The question was a sincere one from a young reporter who really wanted to know:

What’s missing at Georgia?

His point: The SEC has won four national championships since Mark Richt got to Georgia in 2001. None of them belonged to the Bulldogs. Florida has won two of the last three BCS titles. LSU won national championships in 2003 and 2007 and has won three SEC championships in the past eight years. Georgia was ranked No. 1 prior to the 2008 season and finished with a “disappointing” 10-3 record.

So he wanted to know what those programs have that Georgia doesn’t have.

I didn’t agree with the premise of the question but I wanted to give him an answer backed up with some facts. So I crunched a few numbers and came up with this answer: There is nothing missing at Georgia that a little perspective, and maybe an All-SEC defensive end or two, wouldn’t cure.

I do a weekly radio show out of Nashville (104.5 The Zone) and last Wednesday a caller asked me if Richt would be in trouble if he had another “disappointing” season. He was serious.

Now Mark Richt certainly doesn’t need me to make a case for him. But let’s all take a deep breath here and try to take some of the emotion of last season out of the process.

Here is what the top six football programs in the SEC have accomplished in the eight years that Mark Richt has been at Georgia:

Team————Wins—–SEC wins*—–SEC Champ—-BCS Bowls——-BCS titles

Georgia———-82———–46—————-2——————3——————-0

LSU—————-82———–45—————-3——————4——————-2

Florida————77———–46—————2——————-3——————-2

Auburn————71———–43————–1——————-1——————-0

Tennessee——–68———–42————–0——————-0——————-0

Alabama———-62————35————-0——————-1——————–0

*–Does not count SEC championship game appearances

Here is a look behind those numbers:

Nobody has won more games (82) and more conference games (46) in eight years than Richt. LSU is tied for total wins and Florida is tied for conference wins.

Only seven men in the history of Division I-A football have won 80 games in their first eight seasons as a head coach. Richt is one of those seven.

Only LSU, with three, has won more SEC championships in that span than Richt’s two. He has taken Georgia to the SEC championship game three times in eight seasons. Only LSU has been there more, with four appearances.

What about the national championships won by Florida and LSU while Georgia fans are still waiting for their first since 1980? Okay, that’s fair. But consider this: Winning a national championship is a function of being good but, in the BCS system, it is also a function of luck.

Auburn wasn’t lucky in 2004 despite being undefeated. Southern Cal and Oklahoma started the season ranked 1-2 and both went undefeated. They finished ahead of Auburn and the Tigers didn’t get the chance to play for the title.

In 2006 Florida was ranked No. 4 on championship Saturday but caught a break when No. 2 Southern Cal lost to UCLA. Florida jumped over No. 3 Michigan and into the championship game with Ohio State. If Southern Cal takes care of business, the Gators go to the Sugar Bowl and don’t win Urban Meyer’s first national championship.

In 2007 LSU began championship Saturday ranked No. 7. But losses by No. 1 Missouri and No. 2 West Virginia opened the door and LSU vaulted to No. 2. LSU proved it was the best team in the country when it trounced Ohio State in the BCS championship game. But if either Missouri or West Virginia wins, LSU never gets that chance.

The point is that if a coach with all the resources he needs is not competing at the top of his conference, then he is fair game. Georgia fans should expect their program to play at the highest level and to compete for SEC championships on a regular basis. But if a coach is competing at the top of this conference, then championships become a function of injuries and breaks.

Now, should Georgia fans be concerned that Florida has won two of the last three national championships and will be just about everybody’s preseason No. 1 in 2009?

You bet. Based on what I saw in my two days last week in Gainesville, everybody in this league is going to have to step it up to keep pace with the Gators. And there is the challenge for Richt and every other coach in this league.

 Am I missing something here? If so, the floor is yours.

LSU did win the NC in 2003 and UGA lost to them, twice! UGA also lost to FL, but backed into the SECC game because of the cream puff division at the time. But that’s one of Richt’s “Championship Game” appearances for his stats. Like I said, he had it easy in those days. Not anymore though.

Excellent column Tony about an excellent coach, but there are two phases to the question.

First, you have to win the SEC to win the BCS, and that’s where Coach Richt hasn’t fared as well as some of his peers.

If you win the SEC (and aren’t undefeated), then getting to the BCSCG takes a considerable amount of luck and is usually outside the total control of Florida or LSU or anybody else. We all complain about it, but in another sport, we call it “the rub of the green”.

You are right that UF is turning it up a notch for the rest of us, but I am confident Coach Miles has the right answers recruited and the right assistants in place to make it happen. I happen to find it very favorable that the Gators are LSU’s regular SEC-East Opponent every year. If you want to be the best, you’d better play the best.

I look forward to taking the measure of UGA in Athens this year. I have a lot of respect for Coach Richt and the Dawgs, but I think they’ll be close but won’t win the SEC-East and one of those losses will be to LSU.

GT ” Georgia with had the best personal in years last year and still lost 3 games ”

No it wasn’t, not even close. See Lane’s post at 2:48. The ‘07 team was better and IMO ‘09 is looking better for the reasons stated in that post. The ‘07 team lost 2 games and was still one lucky break away from playing in a SECCG which was a clear playoff for the BCS title.

I think UGAg has a chance to be competitive against GT in 2010. Dwyer, Burnett, & Morgan will probably leave early for the NFL and level the playing field against Richt. Sedric Griffin will be gone too. But, CPJ is just too much of a better coach than Richt to lose.

This year, GT puts at least 50 on the fleabags, I don’t know if it will break the record of 48-0 owned by GT, but that’s why we play the games, right?

huh?: “Not even the Gainesville Golden Boy Urban Meyer has got it all figured out”

actually, that’s the problem…Meyer has the blueprint, and that’s bad bad news for UGA.

I do think Richt is a good coach, but what separates Meyer from the Richts of the SEC is that he is a big game coach…some d-bag gave his record against the West (and then for some reason removed two schools from that same record…as if that made any sense…wasn’t Arky in the SEC champ game 2 yrs ago?)…yes, UF historically, under SOS, [name redacted], and corch meyer have had a loss in the West every year…but guess what, Meyer is also something like 16-1 vs FSU, UT, UGA, Miami, and the SEC/NC games (so, big rivals and championship games). I understand that LSU is a bigger game on the landscape than, say, FSU, but you get the point.

Whereas Richt’s best team ever (not including his preseason Champs) lost to the Zooker because he puckered up.

FACE IT, RICHT = MICKELSON to MEYER’S TIGER WOODS!!

KD……….for the National Championships to be the only thing that matters, “National Championships” would have to exist in college football in the first place……….and they don’t. What does exist in college football are week to week wins and conference championships. Until the NCAA awards a wood plaque with a gold branches, it’s nothing official. Doritos might as well be awarding the thing.

Casual, it’s interesting that you refer to hard factual winning percentages as “mythical success” while rings from a system heavy on votes and things out of your control as more tangible.

But to answer your question, I have yet to hear any explaination of how exactly how being “nice” is a disadvantage or even a factor.

Nonsense, Richt has two SEC titles, including a 13-1 season in ‘02 (show me where Florida or LSU have ever done better). The BCS title is a mythical title that means about as much as Georgia’s 1980 and ‘42 pre-BCS titles – nothing.

Almost as if to mock itself, the BCS crowned 2-loss LSU national champ in ‘07, only three years after snubbing 13-0 Auburn. Why anyone takes a so-called national championship in this sport seriously is beyond me.

There’s only one championship that the coaches have any control over, the SEC. Richt has won 2 in 8 seasons, which stacks up pretty well with the other top contenders in the league.

Two points:
Those of you constantly harping on UGA’s preseason #1 ranking- the team that was picked to win it all was never on the field due to at least 19 season ending injuries. Who knows what the Dogs record would have been with a normal complement of injuries. In 2007 the Gators went 9-4, partially due to a lot of key injuries (though not as many as 08 Dogs).

Question for Bama fans: Has Saban ever had back to back 10 wins or more seasons? I read that he had not, but would like verification.

Come on Georgia fans don’t wimp out on trying to win a NC it is not easy to do but you should strive for it.Despite all this talk about the BCS system Florida was the best team last year and in college basketball who won in the playoffs? Who won in the end? the top teams did, not the no-known teams that are given the chance to so playoffs don’t accomplish much at all.The top big named teams win in the end.Some of you are starting to sound like Auburn fans.Go back and look at Auburn’s schedule.

What a lot of you seem to be forgetting about last year was the amount of injuries that plagued the roster for the entire season. Between losing Sturdivant pre-season, Jeff Owens in the first quarter of the first game, 4 DE’s, etc etc etc (what was it, 19 starters missed 66 starts over the course of the year?), how could anyone realistically expect a National Title?

The penalties were also an obvious problem, but not all were necessarily just. After the endzone celebration in the ‘07 GA/FL game, the Dawgs were under everyone’s microscope. Any hint of a miscue resulted in a flag. I mean, I’m not going to excuse holding, late-hits, and other stupid mistakes that were more prevalent than they should have been. But, the fact remains that Georgia caught more than their fair share of ‘tough breaks’ with penalties throughout the season (as an aside, does anyone remember the footage of the Arizona State game where they showed the Sun Devils had 12 defensive players in their goal line sets on 2 different drives that resulted in UGA field goals? Awesome. Go Pac-10 refs.).

On top of injuries and penalties, there was an inherent lack of hunger, it seemed, especially on defense. Richt attributed that to fewer tackling drills during practice towards the end of the season, which was evident in the last few games (see footage from the Tech game). According to the coaches and players, there’s already been an extreme attitude adjustment this Spring. Hopefully that carries over into the Summer/Fall..

All that said, I think we’ll be fine this year. The offense looked pretty dismal on G-day while the defense was slightly better than average. However, there are still 20-something opening day starters on the sidelines and awaiting high school graduation.

The arrival of Washaun Ealey, Branden Smith, Orson Charles, Kwame Geathers and Marlon Brown will surely be exciting (on top of the rest of a stacked recruiting class).

It’s gonna be a good season :)

Go Dawgs!

I think the world of Coach Richt and wouldn’t trade him for ANY other coach. I love the Dawgs and want them to win as much as anyone and they win a lot. On top of that Coach Richt is a good man, who wouldn’t want their son to play for him? Only someone who only cares about the wins and losses and doesn’t understand there is life besides football.
With all that said, I wonder how Urban will do once Tebow is gone. Not saying Urban isnt a good coach but it seems to me he has a once in a generation player in Tebow. Even UGA fans have to admit that young man is a special player. He seems to be able to will them to win, he reminds me of David Pollack, except from the DE position you are not as in control of the game as the QB.

Hey Tide4u2c….remember this date….I predict that the Tide will have 3-4 losses this year and Georgia will have a better record than Bama. Once again you Tide fans will have more excuses than anyone can count. I watched your Spring game….you got a lot of work to do …Va. Tech is going to hang you out to dry. So is LSU,Ole Miss and most likely Arkansas. Your athletes are no better than anyone elses. Saban teams tend to lose their way every season and under acheive. As always,Saban will then point fingers at everyone except himself….Your O-LINE needs a lot of work and your QB made some incredibly stupid throws in the Spring game.I hear that Jolio Jones is about to flunk out…ouch! Keep thinking that you are the greatest though…that will keep you in the games against teams like La. Monroe…ouch! and Utah….!

I am neutral on UGA, being a UNC fan. I frequently ?rail? on them, usually just to be mean. But if truthful, UGA has one of the best programs in the country, and anyone who suggests that UGA would be better off without MR is simply either ignorant, or (more likely) envious, or just plain scared. He may not ever win the NC, but that will not diminish him or the program. Button it up if you have UGA on your schedule. I hope UNC gets to where UGA is soon, maybe this year.

Andre Smith was perfectly healthy during the Sugar Bowl, so please drop the ‘healthy Bama’ excuse. Even with Smith, the Utes would still beat you because your team and your coach failed to get ready to play them. I know you were disappointed to be playing Utah, but guess what, UGA was disappointed to play Hawaii in 07 and still wiped them off the field. Saban just failed to get his team ready to play in that game, stop making excuses.

Had Andre Smith played in the Sugar Bowl Alabama would’ve beat Utah.That Utah defensive line would’ve been worn down Bama would’ve came back and beat Utah.Bama was catching them even without an O-line. Utah took advantage of Bama’s weakness and you cannot blame them for it.Just like Georgia was effected by injuries Bama was effected with Andre out of the game.Andre is a 1st round draft pick LT.I’m still glad though that Andre was suspended for the game though despite the loss.

So, I’ve taken a look at all the coaches that have won a college football national championship since 1980. One of the reasons I’ve done this is to try and figure out the average of seasons a new head coach, coached a team before they won a championship. I also wanted to figure out if Mark Richt lost his window to win one and if he’s on track to be the next solid good coach that doesn’t win a title.

What I found is that of the coaches that won a national championship since 1980 (some won it more than once but I didn’t use their second victory in the calculation) they have averaged 6.5 seasons in order to win a championships.

Out of all the coaches that won a title since 1980, 5 were very long term coaches (Dooley, Paterno, Jones, Bowden & Osborne) which aren’t seen much more in our day and age. If we remove these 5 coaches from the equation it took the rest of the coaches 3.86 seasons to win their first national championship.

If we look at the last 10 season and figured out the average for new coaches to win a national championship we would find that out of the 9, 1st national championship winners it took them 2.88 seasons as head coaches to win a title.

From my research what I’ve concluded was that CMR may have missed his chance in 2002 when he won the SEC championship and in 2003 when he went into the SEC championship and lost to LSU. Throughout this time UGA’s biggest rivals were all down. Florida had coach Ron Zook, Phil Fulmer was losing his touch and Georgia Tech had Chan Gailey. Since Richt’s early years, South Carolina has hired Steve Spurrier to torment the Dawgs, Florida hired Urban Meyer and Tennessee while having bad seasons still managed to pull off a few big victories vs. the Dawgs. LSU, got another national championship winning coach in Les Miles, Alabama hired Nick Saban and Georgia Tech has obviously upgraded by hiring Paul Johnson.

Having a 10 win season is no different than having an 8 win season 10 years ago when there were only 10 games in a season and going 9 and 3 is like going 7-3. Now that we’ve added a few more games to the schedule all we do is beat up on a few “former” division II schools that pad the winning percentage.

Richt has been coaching for 8 full seasons. If Mark Richt doesn’t make changes like hiring a new defensive coordinator with some fire and drive and a special teams coach that can help us with field position we are on our way to have a long term very good solid coach like Frank Beamer. Too good to fire not good enough to win it all. It takes luck to win a national championship that’s certain but the voters will consider us less than worthy every time they see us get thumped by the Gators. I love the DAWGS but if they can’t beat Florida on a more consistent basis they won’t get over the hurdle. (They need to go .500 with Florida)

Big Dawg—-Good statistical analysis. It is increasingly apparent that new college football coaches are held to a shorter timeline to turn programs around before they themselves get canned fi they don’t. Your numbers may be slightly skewed by omitting the repeat champion coaches, but you’re point is well made nevertheless.

As a Gator fan, I express no opinion regarding the application of your theory to the current head coach of the Dawgs.

From 1903 to 1992 Georgia played Tennessee 21 times.
1993 to 2008 they have played 16 times
From 1903 to 1992 Georgia played Alabama 57 times.
1993 to 2008 they have played 6 times.
From 1903 to 1992 Georgia played LSU 20 times.
1993 to 2008 they have played 7 times.
Georgia cannot win championships anymore with the schedule the SEC has today.

The truth hurts and kiffinisaloser,

You guys are pretty sad dudes in that all you can do is gloat about someone else beating Bama in Utah. I guess you both must be huge Ole Miss fans also since they beat the hated gators. Truly pathetic

We didn’t just lose Andre for the game. We also lost our all conference left guard Michael Johnson early in the first qtr and so we played the game without the strength of our o-line which is the left side. Plus our 3rd down tailback Roy Upchurch didn’t play. Being that you’re both UGA fans I’m certain you remember Mr. Upchurch. But enough with the excuses. That’s not really why we got UTAH’D.

We didn’t show up mentally prepared to play and got whupped. It happens and if you come into a bowl game ticked off, disinterested, and not really wanting to play the game because you fell one qtr short of being in the national title game then you deserve to lose. So what? Hard to believe that you 2 are so pathetic that you’re happiness is made by Utah beating bama. Is there a word more pathetic than pathetic to describe the 2 of you?

I can tell you what’s missing at Georgia,football wise anyway,CLASS.Coach Richt,whom I highly respect,often times appears to be the only person,along with Claude Felton,who has any….disregarding his little motivational stunt in Jacksonville 2 years ago.Being an SEC football fan,it is a great conference,and lucky enough that my job has afforded me the opportunity to visit every SEC stadium on game day,I can personally attest that UGA fans are the worst,and generally,the most disliked,of fans throughout the conference.Everybody has their own personal rivalry game…but UGA folks,are,by and large,despised by all,because of their obnoxiouness…even after a win.I’ve seen one of their fans barking at a nine year old girl,I’ve seen one of ‘em hit an Auburn fan..and run..the Auburn guy was taking a leak…keyingcars. ..and on and on.Rennie Curran said,after losing to Georgia Tech last year,that the best team lost…which seems to be standard commentary after a loss…it was a fluke…fully endorsed by Dawg Nation.Late hits,I bet they led the nation in those.What’s missing at UGA?
