UGA’s Richt, LSU’s Miles, in completely different situations

I’ve done a lot of radio interviews this spring and invariably the host has asked me the same question: Going into the 2010 season whose seat is hotter– Mark Richt or Les Miles? Even my friend Paul Finebaum linked the two men together in his most recent column.

http://blog.al.com/press-register-sports/2010/05/finebaum_les_miles_mark_richt.html

First of all, I don’t understand the linkage, other than the fact that both men coach in the SEC , where they are expected to win every game, and that the top coaches in their respective divisions (Nick Saban, West; Urban Meyer, East) have won the last two national championships.

But there the similarity ends.

Les Miles took over a program that Nick Saban built and won a national championship in his third season (2007), when the players in Saban’s last class were seniors. In the past two seasons LSU is 8-8 in the SEC and fans on the Bayou wonder if Miles can win a title with his own players.

When it comes to Miles, there is this nagging sense that he and his staff are not maximizing the talent on this team. Actually, it’s more than a nagging sense.  When it comes to offense, LSU really hasn’t had much of a clue as to what it is doing the past two seasons. Quarterback Jordan Jefferson has not gotten one bit better since this time last year. A team that used to be known for blue collar football (LSU ran for over 200 yards a game in the national championship year but was 11th in the SEC last season), the Tigers are now look pretty soft on that side of the ball.

Let’s put it this way: LSU had better beat North Carolina on Sept. 4 at the Georgia Dome or there will be folks in that part of the world with Jon Gruden’s number on speed dial.

Richt took over at Georgia in 2001 and won a conference championship in 2002 with a team made up mostly of players he inherited from Jim Donnan (who still doesn’t get enough credit for what he did at Georgia to rebuild the talent base). But then he won another championship with his own players in 2005, and was as good as anybody in the country in 2007.

He’s won 90 games in nine years. He’s 50-22 in the SEC. In six of those years he has been 6-2 or better in the league. He has never been worse than 4-4 in the SEC.

Having said all that, has Georgia looked like a well-coached team the past two seasons? The answer is decidedly “No.” Here are two important numbers:

113: That was Georgia’s national ranking (out of 120 Division I-A schools) in penalties per game. Georgia had 105 penalties in 13 games. Only five schools in America (Troy, Oklahoma, Colorado, Texas Tech, Arizona State) had more penalties. By contrast, BCS champ Alabama had 69 penalties in 14 games. This has been a problem for two years and has not been fixed.

118: Georgia’s national ranking in turnover margin, which I think is the most important statistic in football. Georgia forced 12 turnovers last season (2 fumbles, 10 interceptions) but turned the ball over 28 times. That’s minus-16 in turnovers. Only one team in America, Miami of Ohio (minus-24) had a worse turnover margin. By contrast Alabama was plus 19 (31 takeaways, 12 turnovers) in 14 games. The hope at Georgia is that Todd Grantham’s new 3-4 defense will partly address this issue.

So I’m not saying that Richt and his staff don’t have work to do. They do. Georgia has done things the past two seasons that well-coached teams don’t do. And there is the fact that he is 1-4 against Meyer, who has won two national championships, and that the gap between Florida and the rest of the division seems to be growing. Some Georgia fans, and I hear from a lot of them, are worried that the program has lost momentum. I get that.

But Richt’s situation and that of Miles just aren’t comparable. If Miles goes 7-5 and 3-5 in the SEC there will be a concerted effort to nudge him back towards Michigan, his alma mater, where Rich Rodriguez faces a most uncertain future.

If Richt goes 7-5 it will certainly impact his quality of life in the offseason but it won’t jeopardize his job. He will feel pressure to make some more changes to his staff. But nobody in authority is going to say that he should relocate. In nine years Richt has put a lot of good will into the bank and that matters to the decision makers.

I could be totally wrong about this. What say you?

This UGA team has a chance to be special. They always exceed expectations when they are not expected to do much. Here are the reasons why they will be better than last year;

1) Favorable Schedule
2) Peaking Offensive Line
3) Talented Sophomore class that made an impact as Freshman
4) No Joe Cox
5) No Willie Martinez

Barring injuries they will be undefeated going into Jacksonville. Keep the uniform gimicks in the bag and play hard nose football. Richt will be here for at least another 10 years.

I agree with you, Wolveriner, for reasons obvious to some astute readers. College football has gotten a little out of hand, love it though I do. It’s too bad the presidents need the revenue bad enough that they sacrifice their integrity as educators and run modern-day plantations with slave labor. And a fraction of the kids get to think they’ll follow in the footsteps of such character stalwarts as (name your favorite NFL/NBA thugs here).

Averaging 6-2 in the SEC and 1-1 (so far) against Paul Johnson is decent. It all depends on how Richt does in the other out-of-conference games. 3 wins every year in those, and Georgia wins 9 to 10 games every year, with the chance to add a bowl win for a really good season.

51Ml, whats your point other than to point out Bama won the NC..Sorry to disappoint you but yes his record over the last nine years is relevant and does matter..When will the Bama faithful start throwing bricks thru Saban’s windows as they did with Bill Curry and other coaches who didn’t give you a NC every year…I believe every Coach knows exactly what “what it is about”, yes championships..Don’t know if or when the dawgs will win a NC, but i would bet the dawg nation will not be throwing bricks through his windows…

Really UGA fan your going to continue to pull its a “disadvantage” for UGA to play in Jax against UF? Oh my! UGA has to travel by plane while UF travels by bus. Must be some really tough flights the players take. Last I checked when I fly, its pretty comfortable. I can take a nap if I’d like, watch a movie, relax. But clearly UGA must be taking a cargo plane full of chickens to columbia then back to Jacksonville. Give it up UGA fan. You lose on the field because your out coached and out played. The game has been there since the 30s and you only complain about it when your losing. You certainly didnt have a problem with it in the 80s.

SaintsLSU, I think whether Miles would survive an 8-4 season is a function of what the 8-4 season looks like. If they look like a well coached team on offense and lose close games to Alabama, Florida and a couple of others but also have some impressive wins, Miles would probably get another year. If it is 8-4 with a soft running game and clock management issues plus a couple of bad losses that show LSU is no longer a threat to the top teams (like Georgia’s loss to Alabama in 2008 and to Florida in 2008 and 2009), I think Miles would be fired.

While Miles has the 2007 national championship (won as much despite him as because of him in my opinion), some of what went on at LSU last year (clock management, no offensive identity, a key player who didn’t know where to line up half the time) reflected such a lack of basic coaching as to be a fireable offense.

Richt would need to have a very poor season this year followed by another very poor year for his job to even get to choping block status.

If the dawgs rebound this year with a good season, followed by a strong recruiting class to build on next year they will be fine. He changed much of the staff and has the program pointed back in the right direction.

I remember the Ray G years at Georgia. It was awful. I doubt we could get anyone better than Richt and I love what he has done for the school. We knew last year would be rough but those of us at the games recognise how different our season could have been minus 1 BS penalty against LSU. We are still being punished for celebrating in Jacksonville. Watching the draft they showed highlite after highlite of guys running from the inzone to the crowd thumping chests using hand signs for the school, no penalties. Florida will always be a thorn in our side. Just like Ohio State will always have the upper hand against Michigan, but do we really want to try the Rick Rodriges solution? Richt will get things going again. However, if Tennessee take Mett as QB, that is a coach that needs to be fired.

Good article. Agreed, Miles and Richt are totally different cases.

Miles took over Saban’s project of building a BCS contender at LSU, a nice little package to inherit. To date, he remains on the hot seat, continuing to show, he is not a game day coach.

Richt, did well early, 2 SEC Titles in 2002 and 2005, followed by a #2 final BCS ranking on 2007, but hasn’t won the SEC in 4 years.

Richt’s issue seems to be directly related to his tendency to promote from within. After Van Gorder left, the D had one good year (2005), then began a downward spiral under Martinez. Let’s see what a 75% retooled D staff can do.

On O, Bobo is predictable at times, and overmatched other times. CMR’s solution is to revert back to his old time mgmt. plan and spend more time (daily) with the O. At some point, he’s got to trust Bobo with the whole thing, or he will need to look at making another change.

Seems to me that Miles’ seat may be a little hotter than Richts and I think for a couple of reasons. 1) UGA and their fans seem to be a little happier with their lot in life than do the folks in Bayou country. If the dawgs win 9 games but no championships…no real serious problem. The people over at LSU seem to be a little more like Bama and Florida…a couple of years without at least getting to the SECCG and the natives start getting somewhat restless. 2) Richt is more entrenched and established in terms of relationships, tenure etc than Miles. One can’t help but get the feeling that LSU see’s CLM as a bit of an outsider, a hired gun as opposed to being a more solid fixture in the overall scheme of things. Richt, as Tony has pointed out, has a bit more goodwill built up over the years. Prediction: If both Miles and Richt go 7-5 this year, it’s gonna be real hard to see Miles staying. I think Richt gets a year longer rope and still has Bobo that he can fire to deflect heat to before the sights become firmly focused on him.

@ Gary

Wow, 7 months later and youre still blaming your crappy season on the refs. Grow up! The celebration penalty (while BS) did not cost UGA that game against LSU. It was UGA’s inabilities to cover a kick and tackle. Charles Scott broke 3 tackles from your best LB’s and S and raced 33 yards for the score. Then after LSU scored the final TD (and was subsequently penalized for celebration) UGA still had a minute to win the game. Guess what, they did not. Not the refs fault.

now, you’ll probabaly say the penalty change momentum. If it did, then that is a coaching problem.

Yet another reason why LSU is a better program than UGA.

Yes DP, I agree. LSU has some tough OOC games this season. UNC and WVU are not gimmes. I think 9-3 is a likely destination for the Tigers in 2010. And then we will be having this same conversation same time next year. I do think LSU will be very good in ‘11, especially if CB Pat Peterson stays for senior season, and assuming that Jordan Jefferson matures into the QB we are expecting. So if that scenario plays out, I think anything less than a West Championship in ‘11 would be unacceptable by many Tiger fans standards.

Mark Richt probably has one more lackluster season before he is really on the hot seat. Les Miles already has one foot out the door. Neither are in a great position but Richt has more time to work with. Unless UGA is just horrible this season (worse then 7-5) then Richt has at least one more year left. Les Miles needs to turn things around quick or he is gone.

Easy to look at miles and pull the trigger….Richt has a lot going for him. A couple of weaknesses though
He’s see’s the good in people and not the bad…..Willie Martinez was hard working, loyal, great family man….but an awful DC. also, Richt does not have a killer instinct.Also, Bobo should be graded and evaluated as a OC, not a Georgia alum with a cute family.

We make one crucial tackle on LSU’s next possession and it’s probably a different outcome.

And BTW, Finebaum is a stooge. He just loves the coaches that will come on his show and gives him the respect he is “due” for him being “the voice of the SEC”. Of course, Bama’s got things rolling so he’s gonna roll with Saban and his gang. Can’t blame him for pandering a bit to his audience but what he says about some other programs/coaches are really just stupid crazy and mis-informed. Again, he’s just playing everybody in my opinion for the ratings. Guess it works for him….

Crimson Tider

Reptiles Rule,

That would be a pretty accurate observation. LSU fans, like Bama and Florida fans, have come to expect championship football. Not so at Georgia. Expectations are different and it seems at Georgia they seem to be satisfied with winning 9-10 games, being decent, good, respectable program but not a championship program. How else can one explain not getting fired for going 2-7 against your biggest rival with no end in sight of being able to beat that rival. Assuming he loses to UF as he always does he will be 2-8 overall and more importantly 1-6 against Meyer. Anywhere else that gets you fired no matter how consistently decent your teams are with 9-10 game winning seasons. You have to beat your biggest rival with some consistency.

Nothing wrong with lower expectations if you’re happy with it. Just a different mindset between what Florida, Bama, and LSU have come to expect. Even when we were weak and saddled with probation in the early 2000s we still had the mindset that when it was all over we would be back to competing on a national basis. I’ve never seen that at Georgia and for that reason I agree with you that Richt gets a longer rope due to lower expectations.

SaintsLSU, you guys have as much chance of keeping your DB Peterson around for his senior year as Alabama does of keeping Jones, Dareus, Ingram and Hightower or Georgia has with A.J. Green. Peterson is a stud. The early NFL mock drafts have him in or near the top 10 picks.

I’ll be very interested to see the early LSU-UNC game. That is a huge game to help determine if the ACC will be relevant nationally and whether anybody in the SEC is going to step up and challenge Alabama and Florida. With UNC’s defense it will be a great barometer of whether LSU has addressed its offensive problems from last year. I understand the struggles with the passing game last year with a young QB (though you had good receivers) but the lack of a running game was pretty shocking.

The finebaum show I get even though I’m not a fan of it. People, especially Bama fans, tune it because Finebaum is such a flamethrower. He’s like a Rush Limbaugh. You either love him or hate him and the people who hate him will still listen just to hate on him. He’s somewhat on the Bama bandwagon for the moment but that’s only due to our success last year. For years before that he taunted and ridiculed Bama fans as AU handed us our butts. He’s fair weather guy and just goes with whoever is on top at the moment.

As for Rick and Bubba I completely don’t get it as well. But before you ridicule B’ham keep in mind there are a lot of Georgia people who love that show. You’re just trying to use these 2 shows for a little enjoyable Bama bashing that Georgia people like to do to try and build themselves up by tearing someone else down.

McDawg,

We were the definition of mediocrity for about 5 years between 2000 and 2004 and even then we still managed a 10 win season in there. Please show me a program that has never had a bad 5 year stretch in its history especially given that those were our probation years where we played with 21 fewer scholarship players than everyone else. All you got to point to in our storied history is one mediocre 5 year time frame. Feel better now?

I would rather have one bad 5 year run due to playing with half a deck then go 20 years in between conference championships or 30 years in between national championships. Now THAT would be the definition of mediocrity only it would be mediocrity defined over the long term as opposed to a 5 year time frame.

Between 2005 and 2009 we had 3 10+ winning seasons and went to a bowl every year winning 3 of the 5 and a bcs title.

Tony, there is more going on behind the scenes at Death Valley than you apparently know. It’s tempered somewhat for now since it’s the off season but earlier this year there were alot of upset people. I can tell you that if LSU doesn’t go at least 9-3 or even perhaps 10-2 I’m not so sure Les will be the coach in 2011.

Yes Les did win the NC in 2007 with Saban’s seniors but they have to be coached and yes the Tigers did have some luck. Hasn’t nearly every title team had some luck along the way?

Les doesn’t come across as a great speaker like Saban, Tressel and others. However that doesn’t mean he is dumb or doesn’t know football. I do know that he is well-respected in the coaching community. If he wasn’t he would not have been able to lure Crowton away from Oregon, Frank Wilson from Tennessee, and hire Billy Gonzales and John Chavis. If he was as incompetent as many on here blog, those guys would never have come aboard and all of them are outstanding coaches.

I just don’t agree with an earlier poster that Miles is not a good gameday coach. Yes there was no excuse for the time debacle against Ole Miss. However I have been to many games when the Tigers came out in the second half and won games and that is attributed to adjustments being made.

Miles does runs a disciplined program. To my knowledge I can only think of 4 player arrests in the last 4 years.

He also is a great recruiter as LSU’s classes are tyoically among the best in the nation. A service last week had the Tigers ranked 2nd for 2011. We all know that can change.

LSU’s woes on offense last season are primarily due to poor play at QB and poor blocking by the line. Yes Tony the Tigers’ run game last season was bad. However in 2008 the Tigers had Herman Johnson, a massive left guard who was a 1st team All-American, Ciron Black, all-SEC, and Quinn Johnson, an outstanding blocking fullback. In 2009 both of the Johnsons were gone and the Tigers never did found a replacement after using several players to fill Quinn’s shoes at FB. They had a new center in 2009 and Black simply had a poor season. Sporting News magazine had Black as their top lineman in the nation last August. He regressed so much that he wasn’t even drafted by the NFL and to my knowledge didn’t sign a free agent contract as well.

Perrilloux was going to be the starter at QB in 2008 but when he was kicked off they had noone with any real experience as Perriolloux was the backup the prior season. They ended up throwing Lee in there and we know what happened with him. They had not choice but to go with Jefferson and he just has not panned out.

This is to not make any excuses and, as ReptileRules accurately says, the natives are restless as the last 2 seasons are just unacceptable.

Miles does have the heat on him and he has a tough schedule this fall in which to turn things around. The window for him to improve is getting narrower. Personally, I have met him and i like him. But the bottom line is winning and contending for championships.

As far as Richt, yes he has had a great record but his lack of success against Florida, not winning a NC and the numerous off-field problems with players has him in some hot water too. I lived in Georgia for many years and most of my friends there are Dawg fans and they are not happy either. If UGA goes 8-4 and if those losses include Tech, Florida and/or Auburn and SCarolina, it would not surprise me, Tony, if he was fired.

In my opinion, both will have serious problems if they don’t win at least 9 games. Personally I think Les needs to win 10 but I am doubtful because of the schedule.

Yes, it’s just fun to make Alabama jokes. I actually briefly lived in Gadsden in the mid ’90s and listened to Rick & Bubba before they made the big move to Birmingham. It was a good show for a small town. The thing about them and Finebaum is, well, they just ooze feel-good, home-spun, comfortable homerism. It’s like eating an entire bag of brown sugar. That works in Birmingham, and that’s fine. But it is different in Atlanta radio, for better (my opinion) or for worse.
