See Mark Richt’s trick shot (UPDATED)

Mark Fox, the top tweeter in the SEC according to one Website’s ranking, sent out the word via Twitter late Saturday morning:

“So game day trick shot by our walk-ons hit a new high today –- Coach Richt the star of the show!!”

Fox, Georgia’s basketball coach, linked to video of Mark Richt, Georgia’s football coach, banking a one-handed behind-the-back shot through the net in Stegeman Coliseum.

“One-for-one,” Richt said as he triumphantly left the court.

Here’s the video of Richt’s improbable shot on YouTube. Enjoy.

UPDATE: By late Sunday night, Richt’s shot had been viewed more than 14,000 times on YouTube.

If you follow Fox on Twitter, you know that trick shots are quite popular among Georgia’s walk-ons.

By the way, Fox  tweeted Friday  night that Saturday’s  5 p.m. game against No. 8 Tennessee at Stegeman Coliseum was sold out except for the final student tickets that were available starting at mid-afternoon.

UPDATE: As you know, Georgia upset the Vols on Saturday in sold-out Stegeman. On Sunday, Fox tweeted:  “Great win — thanks to all of you who came and helped us. Go Dawgs!”

Just got off the golf course…..ran into some people that QUESTION CMR’s ability to get US back to the TOP of the PACK. He still has the MAGIC….b ball included. He made decisions he DIDN’T want to make BUT this is part of his GROWING process. I believe we HAVE the RIGHT HC and have taken care of our WEAK LINKS !! The future is BRIGHT with our new hires!!!!

I was talking with some dude on the tennis court today, and we were all saying how blessed we were to have 1 of the 7 coaches who had won 90 game sin 9 seasons.

Love the video–Coach Richt is a super fun guy–reminds me of Pete Carroll sometimes. The dude’s ana thelete–fo shure,

Great shot — today’s bank shot… and hiring the DC. Love this guy. And Mark Fox too. Very soon the Dawgs will be vying for championships in all sports. This is what “bugs” the rival fans the most. They think we’re full of ourselves (UGA fans), but when you get used to seeing all of these teams vying for titles each year, it can form a lot jealousy. So, whenever the Dawgs hapen to suffer a below standard season, they jump all over themselves to put the Bulldawg Nation down. Oh, well, let them do it… and build their own self esteem (if that works) ;-)

Let’s all remember that this is still MR first head coaching job. Unlike the other coaches who have won NC in the SEC. Saban was at MSU, spurrier at duke before uf, can’t remember about miles, Urban was at Utah I believe. I wonder what the avg seasons as head coaches these men had before they won a NC. Uga fans need to show a little more patience and Richt will deliver.

Big Al- What do you mean it’s not that hard of a shot? It is a little bit harder considering that he shot it w/ one hand, backwards…where he can’t see, & made it on the first try. He looked like he was at about the 3 point line. It may not be that hard, but under the circumstances, & to make it on the first try. I think it’s quite impressive myself.

FL DAWG, Great point! That is a very overlooked factor in the development of CMR as a great championship coach. He is different from the other guys in how he is choosing to stay in one place. Our time will come. Great game from the Hoop Dawgs. They finally utilized some of the bench and were able to hold on at the end! Keep it going CMF!

Hot damn, we’ve really been great on OFFENSE.
.

.
OFFENSE.

We cannot line up and run a play without a Penalty.

We cannot line up and run a play without turning the football over.

We cannot figure out who Our Best Players are, and play them.

We give up on 3rd and 10 and run the football.

We cannot block for the pass.

We cannot block for the run.

We can hold.

We can false start.

We lose to an UNRANKED team in Final Poll EVERY YEAR for 9 years now.

We LOSE to the Top 25 teams MORE THAN WE BEAT THEM.

We have had 0 years when we got a great bowl game to cap a season.

We are an afterthought on the National Stage.

We are WORSE than LSU and FLORIDA in the Coach Richt Era.

We are WORSE than Alabama now too.

We are WORSE than Texas in the Coach Richt Era.

We are WORSE than Oklahoma in the Coach Richt Era.

We are WORSE than Southern California in the Coach Richt Era.

We are WORSE than Boise State in the Coach Richt Era.

We are WORSE than Ohio State in the Coach Richt Era.

We are CONSISTENTLY WORSE in the Coach Richt Era than ALL OF THESE TEAMS, INCLUDING NOW WE ARE THE 4TH BEST TEAM IN OUR OWN DAMN CONFERENCE.

17-19 vs AP Poll Final Top 25 and 8 Losses to UNRANKED teams.

Our Offense is the Problem. We do NOT have good play calls.

We waste the firepower handed to our Offensive Coaching Staff.

Bryan McClendon NEVER PLAYED RUNNING BACK for UGA.

Bryan McClendon was ONLY a RECEIVER for UGA.

His dad did. Maybe we should hire his DAD ?

He clearly cannot determine who should be our Running Back.

He clearly cannot teach any Running Back how to carry the ball so he doesn’t fumble it.

Bryan McClendon was a good Receiver when he played. Maybe he should coach Receivers ?

Why does it take until 3rd Quarter of 5th Game to play Washaun Ealey not Richard Samuel and not Caleb Freaking King ?

We Started Richard Samuel and Caleb Freaking do nothing King EVERY GAME at Tailback except 2 starts by Washaun Ealey.

WHO THE HELL DO YOU ANY OF YOU THINK IS A BETTER RUNNING BACK ?

I am not the 1 who is so damn smart, who should be hired as O.C. or head Coach. YOU ARE. You all say that Washaun Ealey CLEARLY IS OUR BEST RUNNING BACK.

So, why ?

Because we play FAVORITES, even those who have proven they are NOT as good as the ones BEHIND them on the Depth Chart.

Because our Running Backs’ Coach KNOWS NOTHING about Running Backs.

NOTHING.

.

Tony Ball NEVER PLAYED RECEIVER.

Tony Ball taught AJ Green to be great ? I think not.

Tony Ball cannot teach Marlon Brown but CAN AJ Green ?

What’s that all about ?

Tony Ball was a Great Running Back.

So, why then is Tony Ball Coaching the Receivers Coach Richt ?

Shouldn’t Bryan McClendon have Tony Ball’s job and Tony Ball, Bryan McClendon’s job ?

They NEITHER are doing the job you put them in with NO NFL EXPERIENCE and with NO EXPERIENCE at the POSITION you have them BOTH as POSITION COACH for.

Why did we play Marlon Brown and LOSE AN ENTIRE SEASON throwing him only 2 passes all season long for only 15 yards ?

Why ?

Because our Receivers’ Coach KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT RECEIVERS.

He didn’t teach AJ Green. AJ Green was already All-America before Tony Ball was handed this CUSHY DAMN JOB “coaching” AJ Green.

In the Florida game at half time, they interviewed Coach Richt and asked him what they had to do to get AJ Green involved in the game ? Coach Richt glibly shot back : Throw him the ball ?

.

John Lilly was a Quarterback.

What the F does John Lilly know about Tight Ends ?

John Lilly coached Tight Ends for Coach Richt the last couple of years.

John Lilly 1st year TE Coach, NO TE caught more than 5 passes all season.

John Lilly this past year has 3 of the best TE in the nation.

He cannot figure out that ORSON CHARLES will star in NFL for 10 years.

He thinks Aron White is BETTER because he caught 3 passes entire 2008.

Orson Charles caught 23 passes for 374 yards his freshman year, not 3.

John Lilly has Aron White Starter at TE for 3 passes caught freshman yr.

Why did we LOSE to Okie State, LSU and the vols ?

Losses because we did NOT Start our Best Players, play FAVORITES.

FAVORITES who proved they are NOT as good as one behind them on the Damn Depth Chart.

You want to KNOW WHY WE BEAT Georgia tek & Texas A&M ?

Because ORSON CHARLES was Starting TE in those 2 games.

Why does it take 11 games to figure out Orson Charles GREAT Aron White back-up ?

Why ?

Because we play FAVORITES; that’s why.

Give me a Freaking Break 3 catches all of 2008 makes Aron White Starter until Game 12 of a 13 game season. YOU SAID Orson Charles should have been the Starter in Game 1. I am NOT the one who should be O.C. or head Coach. YOU SHOULD BE.

It takes us until Game 12 of 13 to make Orson Charles Starting TE ?

Idiots.

THERE is NO WAY to RANK the PLAYERS, and get your PLAYMAKERS on the DAMN FIELD and have Orson Charles NOT START until Game 12 in favor of Aron White.

.

MIKE FREAKING BOBO.

Alias Bozo.

He had a fine senior season for UGA, 1 of the best ever as our QB # 10 UGA.

Having taught our QB Matthew Stafford to have 51 Interceptions and Fumbles to his 51 Touchdown Passes, he is PROMOTED to Offensive Coordinator.

You may recall the previous OC was arrested for DUI. Neil Callaway.

Then, again, you may not. I do.

Neil Callaway finally left after his DUI as our Offensive Coordinator.

He apologized for the DUI, Neil Callaway did.

.

.

2006 with Matthew Stafford and Neil Callaway Offensive Coordinator :
.

79 NCAA Number 79 Passing Offense

90 NCAA Number 90 Total Offense

70 NCAA Number 70 Most Penalties

22 FUMBLES

16 INTERCEPTIONS

1 DUI by the Offensive Coordinator.

1 Beer Keg Photo at Talladega following Callaway’s example by his Starting QB

Any correlation there you think ? Nice coaching job.

Neil Callaway is 11-25 at UAB replacing Watson Brown 62-74 at UAB.

The DUI and Beer Keg Photos were Major Distractions in 2006.

.

SO, WITH THAT BACKGROUND NEXT OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR hired by Coach Richt is MIKE BOZO, I mean Booboo, I mean Bobo, sorry.

.

2007 UGA with Matthew Stafford Mike Bobo Offensive Coordinator :
.

84 NCAA Number 84 Passing Offense

74 NCAA Number 74 Total Offense

85 NCAA Number 85 Most Penalties

18 FUMBLES

10 INTERCEPTIONS
.

.

2008 UGA with Knowshon Moreno Mike Bobo as Offensive Coordinator :
.

56 NCAA Number 56 Rushing Offense

116 NCAA Number 116 Most Penalties

.

2009 UGA Mike Bobo Offensive Coordinator :

This, not only is NOT a good trend, but Mike Bobo has NEVER BEAT a Final AP Poll Top 10 team, LOSING EVERY GAME.

Duh.

5-6 vs. Final AP Poll Top 25 with 4 LOSSES to UNRANKED TEAMS.

Duh.

Has FAILED to PREPARE a SINGLE QUARTERBACK, ever.

Talks about VALUING THE FOOTBALL and how we have to do BETTER at VALUING THE FOOTBALL, because of ME in here.

Then, promptly goes out instead and HAS SOME OF THE WORST PERFORMANCES by his Quarterbacks on Offense EVER on ANY TEAM in the HISTORY of FOOTBALL with combined FUMBLES and INTERCEPTIONS now EXCEEDING the number of Touchdown Passes as OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR.

Plus, he cannot even line his players up and run a play without a penalty.

3rd and 10 ? Running Play. Every time.

1st down ?

Throw a Pass.

Mike Bobo is so predicable that UNRANKED TEAMS’ coaches UTTERLY take him to the DAMN CLEANERS.

4 LOSSES to UNRANKED TEAMS as Offensive Coordinator.
.

.

Bozo OC scored 12 points vs 6-Loss no Bowl Game South Carolina 2007.

Bozo OC scored 14 points vs 4-Loss vols 2007. vols scored 35.

Bozo OC put up 20 points vs 7-Loss Vandie 2007.

Bozo OC put up 24 points vs 5-Loss Kentucky 2007.

This was with Knowshon Moreno AND Matthew Stafford.

.

.

Bozo put up 14 points vs 5-Loss South Carolina 2008 Knowshon Stafford AJ Green.

Bozo put up 10 points vs Florida 2008 Knowshon Stafford AJ Green.

Bozo applauded by FL players when Logan Gray scored with 1 minute to go.

Bozo put up 17 points vs 7-Loss Auburn with Knowshon Stafford AJ Green.

Bozo 24 Mich St 27 vs 7-Loss Ar St, 26 vs 7-Loss vols, 24 vs 6-Loss Vandie

This was with Knowshon Moreno, Matthew Stafford AND AJ Green.

.

.

Bozo put up 10 vs Okie State UNRANKED Not Top 25 Final AP Poll 2009.

Bozo put up 20 vs 8-Loss Arizona State 2009.

Bozo put up 13 vs LSU who beat no Final AP Poll Top 25 team.

Bozo put up 19 vs 6-Loss vols. vols put up 45.

Bozo put up 27 vs 6-Loss UNRANKED Kentucky.

Bozo put up 17 vs Florida this year after 10 last year when he got applauds from the Florida players on the sidelines politely applauding Bozo for finally scoring with a minute left the only touchdown he got with Knowshon Moreno, Matthew Stafford and AJ Green.

.

.

It has been a MISERABLE RUN with Mike Bobo as Offensive Coordinator.

There is NO OTHER WAY TO DESCRIBE IT.

Mike Bobo has NEVER BEEN OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR ANYWHERE.

But, we have to have a coach with 11 years NFL Experience to be our Defensive Coordinator, but our Offensive Coordinator can be of the same mold as all the other coach Richt hires on his “coaching staff” other than this 1 Defensive Coordinator with 11 Years NFL Experience.

No Knowledge of good play calls and no one ever said he did.

No Experience as Offensive Coordinator.

No NFL experience.

No Proof he can call plays.

Boos by EVERY FAN at Sanford Stadium for Bozo’s PLAY CALLS.

Check out Coach Richt’s Trick Shot, he has to have an 11-year Veteran to be his Defensive Coordinator but his Offensive Coordinator can prove he knows NOTHING about Coaching an Offense or calling plays.
