In a piece ESPN did yesterday in regards to the everlasting college football coach’s “Hot Seat” debate, they took a jab at UGA fans.
By now the story should not be new to you. Mark Richt was widely considered to have been on the proverbial “Hot Seat” following more than disappointing seasons in 2009 and 2010. But since winning 10 games in 2011, and 12 more in 2012 in a year which Georgia was only four yards short of a trip to the BCS Championship game, a game in which they likely would have won, the “Hot Seat” talks seemed to have disappeared.
Then UGA lost to Clemson, a top-10 nationally ranked team, on the road to start the 2013 season. Many fans once again lost their minds, and ESPN once again noticed.
If you do not want to watch the entire video above, skip on over to the :38 point, where the Gene Wojciechowski proclaims:
“And of course, whenever Georgia loses, which really isn’t all that often, Mark Richt is sitting on it too.”
Clearly, this is a jab at UGA fans, not the program, claiming that they over-react every time a Mark Richt team loses a game, no matter the magnitude or challenges that were in place at the time.
I look forward to your thoughts below:
