Georgia on his mind?

One of the common themes that I noticed on BON this summer was that we should all be vicarious Georgia Dawg fans in 2010, because If there's one school out there that could turn the head of our brilliant young DC, it's momma. As many of you have noticed, three weeks of the 2010 season has produced the worst possible scenario in Athens.

Aside from the awful on-field performance, which speaks for itself, the bigger issues are all the off-field incidents, such as winning the 2010 Fulmer Cup, the Athletic Director's spectacular flame job (replaced by someone with no strong ties/loyalty to Richt), the A.J. Greene suspension, and a general unease among the faithful not seen in these parts since the Ray Goff era. I use the term unease here rather than unrest: they never liked Donnan to begin with - that was unrest. The feeling I'm getting now is more unease, because they genuinely like Richt. Even though he's not one of their own (like Goff), Richt has brought them more success than anyone since Dooley. He's earned his chits.

Thrown in an on-field opportunity to grab the ring from Florida while it's reloading (now gone), and you have a fan base that really wants a change. This is a very conservative group, even by SEC standards, and I'm sure that anything outside of a 9-win season would have saved Richt anyway. Judging from the early results, that ain't gonna be an issue come late November.

You can be sure the wheels are already in motion. The lone bit of good news in all of this is that Alabama DC Kirby Smart is just as fair-haired and shiny as Muschamp in the eyes of the Georgia illuminati.
