At least we won’t have any Grantham-on-the-hot-seat talk next season!

Todd Grantham is on his way to Louisville. (AJC file)

You’ve probably seen that UGA has confirmed reports that Todd Grantham is leaving to take the defensive coordinator’s job under Bobby Petrino at Louisville. The words “getting while the getting’s good” immediately come to mind.

Lots of speculation on possible replacements, with former Texas DC Manny Diaz mentioned by a lot of folks. I just hope the search doesn’t drag out like it did when Grantham was hired. With signing day for recruits less than a month away, having someone already on board would be a big plus.

And at least other schools won’t be able to continue telling recruits, “Well, you know Grantham’s likely to be gone next year anyway.”

So, feel free to celebrate, vent, speculate, whatever …

Well this blawg just took a plunge into the toilet… not that there was any true discussion going on but it was better than the predictable face plant into the “your gay” horse manure.

It may, 3.5″, but that’s why they call it a prediction. It is the best way to go for now. Find a position coach that relates to the young recruits and…Voila!! National Championship!!

I wouldn’t slit my wrists if it ended up being Olivadotti but I don’t think Richt can go that route this time. He needs to get the fan base on board with the hire and not enough of them know his pedigree.

That’s a dumb prediction and you know it! Their is no way Olvadotti is getting the job. Mcgarity said he wants to energize the team and fan base! It’s either going to be Kirby….Pruitt….chizik….the miss st DC or randy Shannon…UGA will get one of these guys.

The so called guy that owns the chicken house is still waiting on the self described Mr Guru to tell us simpletons how this program that puts more players in the NFL than any other school in the SEC the last decade is about to enter the level of Bama LSU Aub and FL

Tell us why a 2 loss season is no longer the pinnacle success but instead we will win a conference championship once every 4 to 6 years and play for a national title

Richt’s job is on the line….no way he hire an unproven DC for the 3rd time in a row! Unless he wants to be fired!

DawginColorado

Remember, Richt’s job is on the line. Yes, his future was in doubt when he ended up with Grantham but he did fire Martinez which is what the fan base wanted. The appeasement factor was there and the fact that his first 3 choices all entertained the offers and accepted counter offers to stay put bought some mercy. At the time getting “the NFL guy” was not viewed as bad as it turned out to be. This time somebody has to be reeled in.

The offers this time will be behind the scenes to avoid the “well we got our XX” choice unless choice # 1 or 2 bites.

flat,

Why is this national news in the first place? Would you have this notoriety if this was most other schools? No, you wouldn’t. Because, nationwide, people perceive UGA to be on that level that you covet. You’re just too stupid to see it…

8-5 means you lost five games. You won eight games. That’s what 8-5 means.

I don’t think it will be Olivadotti but I would not be surprised if he was retained in some way. Too bad Hines never played defense… getting him on the staff would be a big boost. The problem is where would he fit? We already have an ace recruiter RB coach and a good WR coach. Those damned NCAA rules… a school should be able to carry as many coaches as they can afford. If the little guys can’t handle it then they need to just sink back to FCS or something. (I’m only half kidding)

Colorado,

Maybe you’re right. But Olivadotti has a passion about where he is. He has NFL experience and he’s knowledgeable about what needs to be done. He will avoid every mistake Grantham made because he saw it first-hand. The newbie I speak of will be used primarily for recruiting, he doesn’t need high level coaching experience….I’m just saying…
