I've been pretty pro-Richt, but this is starting to be a trend. If UGA decides they want to play at the national level, Richt might not be the guy. I don't know who we'd replace him with, but you just can't have games like this.
I agree completely.
There's no shame in losing a close one to a great opponent, but that's not what this was. This was a complete meltdown.
I really like Richt, and I want so badly for him to be The Guy, but it never fails that we end up with at least one of these games a season. I'm running out of ways to argue against people who claim there's a ceiling for his success.

That said, I'm looking forward to watching South Carolina play LSU and Florida on the road over the next couple weeks.
It could be worse, though, Matt; at least we're not Auburn fans...
PS: I passed on your message to Ed. He was not pleased.
We can always count on the Barn to make us feel better.
Also, it brightens my football day just a bit to know I was able to troll Ed by proxy.
