Richt: Winner to whiner?

Some UGA fans appear to think Mark Richt’s latest incarnation, following the Iceman/Nice Guy of the early days and “Evil” Richt of the end zone stomp, is Mr. Whiner. First there were his recent comments about the annual game in Jacksonville (he’s right that it’s not a neutral site, but complaining about the weather there favoring the Gators was a bit of a stretch), and now he’s griping about his Dogs’ nonconference schedule this coming season.

“I’m not that thrilled about it,” Richt told the Athens Banner-Herald concerning facing what College Football News called “the toughest nonconference slate of any SEC team by far,” with games against Oklahoma State, Arizona State and Georgia Tech in 2009. 

As the ABH points out, of the 65 teams in the six Bowl Championship Series conferences, only two besides Georgia will play three nonconference games this season against teams from BCS conferences. And neither one of them has as tough a schedule as Georgia’s: Syracuse will go up against Minnesota, Northwestern and Penn State while Georgia Tech faces Mississippi State, Vanderbilt and Georgia.

“One would be plenty,” Richt said. “The plan was never to have Oklahoma State and Arizona State and Georgia Tech [in the same season]. That was never the plan.” Richt said the plan was supposed to be playing one other BCS team plus Tech in a season … and he’s not in love with even that idea. 

The upgrading of the nonconference schedule was “for the fans and to get out of the Southeast region” for recruiting purposes, he said. But Richt believes traveling 1,900 miles each way to Arizona last season impacted the Dawgs adversely the next week when Alabama jumped out to a big halftime lead in Athens. 

Again, with the whining: “That’s a tough trip,” Richt said. “It’s a tough trip to go all the way over there and then come back, fly back through the night and then just get ready to keep grinding, because it is a grind. You need rest. Not only your players, but your coaches need rest, too.”

Richt’s boss, athletics director Damon Evans, doesn’t sound convinced by the head coach’s arguments about the detrimental effect of traveling out west. Said Evans: “That’s his opinion and I’ll listen to his opinion, and I’m sure he has some valid points. … I do know this: That there are teams around the country that do it week in and week out. Sometimes you’ve got to get up and go. … This year we’ll probably be playing a night game at Arkansas. We’ll probably get in later from Arkansas than we will from Oklahoma State.”

Examining Richt’s stance on this, he has a point and he doesn’t. Yes, playing three BCS nonconference teams in one season on top of an SEC schedule is excessive. It’s certainly not the norm. Tennessee has the reputation for scheduling big-name nonconference opponents, but generally only one per year (California, UCLA in recent years), with the rest less than imposing. This year, they face Western Kentucky, UCLA, Ohio and Memphis. LSU’s nonconference schedule is Washington, Louisiana-Lafayette, Tulane and Louisiana Tech. Alabama does open with Virginia Tech, but its other nonconference games are against Florida International, North Texas and Chattanooga. 

Ole Miss has Memphis, Southeast Louisiana, Alabama-Birmingham and Northern Arizona.

And then there’s Florida’s embarrassingly light nonconference schedule, which has Charleston Southern, Troy, Florida International and not-what-it-used-to-be Florida State.

Evans gives Florida a pass on that schedule. “Certain schools have built up reputations because of what they’ve accomplished,” he told the ABH. “Florida gets a lot of credit. They’ve won two national championships. Let’s not forget that. You’ve got to work your way up and Florida has done that.”

Well, yes. But during their 2006 national championship season, the Gators’ nonconference oppoents were Southern Mississippi, UCF, Western Carolina and FSU. Last year’s nonconference schedule was slightly more respectable, with Miami and Hawaii joining FSU and the Citadel.  

So Richt does face a tougher schedule this year than the rest of the conference. But Evans says three nonconference BCS opponents in one season is not going to be the rule. More often, Georgia will play one BCS nonconference game besides Tech in a season. And that’s something fans, tired of all those yawner home games against schools with directional names, have wanted. There’s also the advantage of a tough schedule impressing the folks who vote in the human polls and bolstering the Dogs in the computer polls.

As for the trip to Arizona being a factor in last year’s showing against the Tide, Georgia didn’t look tired in the first half of the Bama game; they looked unprepared. As the game went on, the Dogs actually played better. Maybe it was the players getting too caught up in the whole “Blackout” thing or just the coaches not getting them ready or a combination, but tired from the previous week’s travel? I don’t buy it.

So what do you think? Is Richt justified in complaining about the schedule? Or does he need to quit with the whining and concentrate on winning?

As much as I loved Stafford, Knowshon & MM, the fact is: for all of that “talent” those 3 had and for all the offensive numbers they put up:there STILL is no “I” in TEAM. My point:ZERO SEC Championship game appearances for the Bulldogs. What makes one think we can’t win without them. The numbers didn’t lie:we certainly couldn’t win the SEC WITH them. In Atlanta, Florida didn’t have their most explosive offensive player in their biggest game of the season up to that point. Guess what: they STILL won.

Reality Check,
That could be the most idiotic post I have ever read. You claim that your OOC schedule is tougher than everyone eleses bc of playing TECH. It was you and all the other idiots on this blog that a few short months ago before the jackets beat your ass and yall had won 7 in a row that said playing your TECH made your OOC weak. So which one is it????? Make up your mind. 2. You obviously do not even know what an out of conference schedule means. You claim that other schools have tougher schedules bc they play SEC in OOC???????? Well newsflash any SEC game is a conference game whether playing a team from the SEC west or east and all 12 teams in the SEC go through the same process regarding what teams they play in the other division. You play one team every year and then you rotate two teams in and out. So sometimes you do get lucky and play two weak teams from the west or get unlucky and play two hard teams in the same year. BUT EVERY SEC SCHOOL HAS 8 SEC games every year end of story. Your comment just shows you dont know what the hell you are talking about and you like every other UGA fans tries to make exucse after excuse about everything. Quite comical if you ask me.

(I am a season ticket holder.) I kindly request that COACH RICHT keep his mouth shut on this issue. We may have the “strongest non-conference schedule” THIS YEAR…but we have had the softest, crappiest non-conference schedule year in and year out for decades. (Thanks Vince.) It sucks to pay big money for season tickets and have 1/3 of the home schedule setup as “TN Tech” and “GA SOUTHERN” year after year after year. I was in Tempe, I will be in Stillwater,…Boulder…Louisville…Eugene and look forward to further enhacements to our schedule (think Michigan/Texas A&M/Nebraska). LOOK AT THE SCHEDULE FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS>>>WE HAVE PLAYED NO ONE. Look at Tennessee’s schedule for the last 10 years alone…UCLA, Notre Dame, Miami.

THIS IS LONG OVERDUE. Go Dogs!

Bama Stan,

I’ll put your predictions in the same class with Rambler. Like “LSU won’t score”. “LSU won’t be able to stop us.” “LSU is another SEC school we will dominate.”

The UGA/FLA games are most often not blowouts. Last year was an aberration. This year will again be the 3-9 point spread that typifies most WLOCP’s.

You better worry about Ole Miss passing you in the West THIS YEAR.

Bama “Stain”…Once again you come across as the biggest idiot on this blog.You and your smug attitude about every team in the league except Alabama. One thing you can definitely take to the bank this year is that Bama will lose at least four games( Va.Tech, LSU, Ole Miss, Arkansas or S.Carolina).. …count on it. I saw your Spring game…your new QB has a very weak arm….makes very poor decisions. You have no running game and both your lines are average at best. This will be exposed early in the season by Va. Tech and once again you Bama fans will point fingers and whine. Saban coached teams have a history of underacheiving….thats a fact …just look it up! Also, Georgia may not be very deep at WR but their starting WR’s make Bama’s look like schools boys……and that’s THE TRUTH!

But look at it this way, if UGA has a really good season, with that schedule, they will jump to the top late in the season when it counts. That is a pretty impressive schedule. It makes the SEC look good. It should be viewed as an opportunity not a hazard.

Play hard and play a hard schedule. Isn’t it better to get 7 or 8 quality wins than 9 or 10 playing powder puffs? Once again, you cannot back yourself into a championship. You have to earn it on the field and the better, more regionally diversified the schedule is, the better for bulldawg football in the long run. Yes, play Big 12 and Pac 10 and Big Ten oppenents and we will see if the mighty SEC is indeed the best conference in the land. Concerning this year’s squad, and setting expectations, we might surprized some folks on defense and up front, where it counts. Depth is key and we have more depth than the last two years – but PLEASE do not be afraid of a tough schedule. Go Dawgs!

We do have a tough schedule this year but every game is winnable. The tough competition will wear you down over the Fall but it can toughen you up too.

I never recall Coach Dooley complaining about a schedule, but then again I can never remember him playing one as tough as Coach Richt faces this year.

Let’s just do our best and limit the turnovers and cover on special teams.

Richt is definitely whining, but I think its a psychological ploy similar to a Holtz/Spurrier tactic of making every team they face sound like the freaking ‘85 Bears. I really do. Talk your opponent up and talk your own team down. This is college football coaching 101. Richt is no fool. I think he knows what he’s doing. Okie State will read those comments and think they’ve got us scared all summer long. Its brilliant.

12 NATIONAL TITLES – 21 SEC TITLES!!!

What message of confidence is Richt sending to his team and fans?

1. We can’t beat Florida in JAX?
2. Our schedule is too tough?

I wouild rather have a coach that would state – ANYTIME – ANYWHERE – let’s stap on the helment and play some football!!!!

With that said – yes, UGA has a tough schedule – but UGA will also be in a down cycle. Richt knows this and is concerned that this will be his worst showing as UGA HC – which I believe it will be. UGA has been passed by Florida, Bama, possibly OLE Mill – will get beat by LSU this year by at leat 10 points – and is more on par and maybe – just maybe slightly better than Auburn, Tennessee, S. Carolina, Arkansas and Kentucky. Vandy might beat UGA again this season as well.

Richt’s teams peaked in 2005 – the 2007 team may have ended up #2 – but that team got beat by S. Carolina and totally blown out by Tennessee in one of the worst showings of a UGA team under Richt.

Yes, the 2007 team got hot and beat a 9-4 Florida team with a hurt QB – and played Hawaii in the Sugar Bowl. Hawaii, by the way – barely beat Washington that year as that was the toughest game on their schedule.

I would like to see UGA and BAMA meet in the DOME to get our 22 SEC Title – Pat Dye was pre-mature – UGA is NOW not man enough!!!

ROOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL TIDE!!!

Wish UGA was on our schedule again this year – we need another breather!!

Either way you look at it, the 12 game schedule is tough on college athletes. Based on previous success in Jacksonville, it shouldn’t be a problem. But like I’ve said before, the monster we always knew Florida had talent-wise, has awakened, and will continue to be a factor for years to come.

As for playing other BCS conference teams, I think one a year other than Tech is enough. Name another major conference where they have to play the likes of Florida, Auburn, LSU and Alabama (I know the schedule fluctuates), plus Tennessee, South Carolina and the answer is obvious.

Another poster said that Southern Cal didn’t have any problems playing Auburn on the Plains. I have no idea who the Trojans played the following week, but I can almost guarantee it wasn’t a Top 10 team.

The primary culprit in all of this is the 12-game schedule. The president’s council wimped out of the play-off concept and allowed an extra game to appease and misdirect fans’ passion. Whether teams play a non-conference BCS opponent or not, teams still have to prepare and the extra time on the field takes a physical and mental toll. While it’s true UGA hasn’t always played a lot of teams from other parts of the country on the road, the Dawgs, like everyone else in the conference, play a taxing conferenc schedule.

I’m not as apprehensive about Oklahoma State as some folks are. UGA played them in 2007 when they supposedly had a good team and handled them easily. Their defense, though they have a new DC, was horrible last year and I don’t think they’ve been able to recruit/scheme out of them talen in one spring. And the Dawg’s defense will be improved.

And ASU will wilt under the humidity of Athens.

Nuff said!

“Yes, the 2007 team got hot and beat a 9-4 Florida team with a hurt QB – and played Hawaii in the Sugar Bowl. Hawaii, by the way – barely beat Washington that year as that was the toughest game on their schedule.”

Something very similar could be said for 2008 Bama. The best team you beat all year was an injury depleted 10-3 Georgia. The SEC West was down. You barely scraped by an 8-5 LSU team that was down after losing its starting quarterback. You were lucky as all hell to beat Kentucky too. Auburn was crap. Tennessee was crap. Clemson was crap. Your out of conference schedule was totally pathetic. When it came time to face the big boys Bama folded like a tent losing its last two games of the season, including mid major Utah in its bowl game. When all was said and done, Alabama didn’t beat a single top 10 team in 2008. What did you really prove?

Two can play this game clown. Your throwing stones from a glass house.

I agree with Richt that it is a tough schedule but to a point Richt needs to forget about how tough it is and get his team prepared. Stop talking about Jacksonville and all this other stuff and lets get the team ready. By the way Bill, where are you getting this notion that it is not a neutral site in Jacksonville? Your not falling into the boat with all the other fans who haven’t seen Georgia win there since the 80s. That stadium is as neutral as it gets, split 50/50 straight down the center. There are as much Dawg fans, if not more, than Gators down there. It is not the setting, stadium, site, or any other thing, it is the team and that team is the Florida Gators. They have owned us down there since the 90s. Starting in the 80s when we always would beat them no one complained about moving the game. Its all about winning. And I think a lot of Bulldog fans(including you Bill) have fallen in that trap that since we can’t beat them, we need to move the site because that is the real reason why we can’t beat them. It’s not, you know it and I know it. It is the team and we need to start beating that team.

I didn’t understand the trip to AZ State last year before the Alabama game. The AZ State game should have been the first game of the year. The trip to Stillwater OK and Arkansas will be taxing on UGA. GT, stop playing Jax State!!!!

I’m really sick of people “reading” comments and thinking that they know what a coach is thinking. Unless you are “listening” to the coach in person to hear the voice inflections and every thing that is said, not just what is left after editing, you have no idea what a coach’s mindset is. I have often heard coach Richt analyze all sides of a question in an interview, and if you only print part of the answer, or don’t print the wording of the question, the answer can be completely twisted. So if you don’t hear the whole interview, you don’t know anything, and from all of the interviews I have actually “heard,” there isn’t any whining going on.

Sounds to me like Coach Richt is just trying to make sure the schedule difficulty is well known to the media so that if/when the Dawgs are winning, they get the extra poll votes for beating tougher teams. He wants to set the stage for a one point win to count like a 20 point win over a patsy.

Go Dawgs!

Well, I guess with all the experts we might as well cancel the upcoming season since the decisions are already being made about who will beat who. I always thought the games were won on the field and not because you have a big mouth. Save your yahda yahda yahda for after the season. I do notice that the SEC is not scheduling any Mountain West teams – bunch of chickens. I guess the difference is that Fresno State’s coach has publically said “anyone, anytime, anywhere.” Richt says “wah, wah, wah.”

Bama Stan,

you sure are a comical piece of work. I acn almost assure you that UGA will win more than 7 games…probably 9 or 10. LSU will NOT beat Georgia – certainly not by 10 or more points. That is a dumb a$$ proclamation. You should be as knowledgeable and concerned about your own issues in elephant land. You will have 8 or 9 wins at best, even with the crappy schedule. I certainly would LOVE to play your pansy arses in the dome for the SECC.

George,

the comment about the poster not knowing what an OOC schedule is makes you look stupid. The poster was referring to other conferences who happen to play a SEC school as an OOC game (FSU, Clemson, GT, etc.) And for you to say that GT whipped UGA last year is a damn joke. Since when does a 3 point win constitute a a$$ kicking? Did you get a ring also?

Fine, then don’t ask the question. Sure the answers to some of the questions seem inane. It is hotter for the Dawgs in JAX. No same temperture unless one is in the sun and the other shade. The Bama game showed how hard it is to returning from the West to play again, Coaches and players need rest. Puhleeze. We lost the game because they were not in awe of the Dawgs. They played a good game and won. I also have no excuses for 45-42 except that Stafford’s non throwing arm was injured. Sorry gators, I could not resist. Set the schedule with real teams and lets play. I do not want to see Amish U on the schedule.

Granted the grind of an SEC schedule is brutal enough for any team in the conference, but if you want to move your program to elite national status then non-conference games like these definitely help more than hurt. I think the “any one, any time, any where” philosophy gives a team that edge to get there in recruiting and exposure.
FSU, Miami, and ND all did this better than anyone in the 90’s.
Players who truly have that “it” factor thrive on competition and want to go to schools where they not only have a chance to win, but also where they can compete against the best and showcase their talents.

Our problem last year had less to do with scheduling and coaching and more to do with losing 22 1st and 2nd stringers for signifigant time ranging from 3 games – the whole season, and the gamble of limiting contact in practice for fear of further injury.

As for Richt’s “whining” I think it has more to do with the “poor-mouthing” and building up lesser opponents tactics learned from both Bobby and Vince.

Again games are won and lost in the trenches, and last year’s injury deliema will be this year’s blessing.
The Dawgs will be just fine.

WOW… seems like the Tech fans really jump over the fact that have won one in a row over UGA. They’re funny when they play such an easy schedule (compared to UGA). I wonder why they don’t try to line up some big name teams… they certainly won’t find many in the ACC. Don’t they have a site to write about all the wonder seasons of tech? Reminds me of a politician that only talks about his opponents faults and never their own attributes or why they’re the one to vote for. I guess tech fans have very little positive to say about their football team (what has been their end-of-season rankings the past 10 years?) so they have to cry about UGA.

So how and the He\\ can they be considered the best team. there non conference schedule is so weak. they will score 80 points on the citadel instead of 70 this year. if I CMR I would be complaining about too! call it what you want, but let’s be real about.
