A lot of Bulldogs fans I’ve heard from in the wake of Saturday’s loss to Georgia Tech are lamenting Georgia’s 9-3 record during the regular season, rating it a relative failure because the team didn’t make it to the SEC Championship or even win the unofficial state championship.
A handful have tried to put a more positive spin on it because of obstacles that had to be overcome by the program this season, such as the suspension and ultimate loss of Todd Gurley, the fact that the offense was breaking in a new quarterback, and that a new staff was rebuilding the defense.
No matter which side you’re on, I’d like to hear from you on the state of UGA football under Mark Richt. Are you frustrated that a 9-3 record is not good enough to win any titles but too good to fire anyone?
Or do you agree with what Richt said Sunday, that the program is on the “right track” and “great things are going to happen”?
