To the 25 or so folks who emailed Georgia AD Greg McGarity after the Bulldogs’ Outback Bowl loss, the top Dawg has a message for you:
“What is important is for people to know that Mark Richt is our football coach, and he and his staff and these players spend so much time in an effort to bring championship football to Georgia. … The more negative people become, the more it distracts you from being successful.”
McGarity said he received about 50 emails after UGA’s 33-30 overtime loss to Michigan State and “about half” of those came from people complaining about coaching decisions.
“Anytime you lose a game, especially one as gut-wrenching as that one was, people get frustrated and they vent in various ways,” he said. “If the game was lopsided, if we had lost 42-0 or something, then there would be some concerns. But to point the finger at a player or a coach or offense or defense or special teams is a waste of time. That was a true team loss. There are plenty of second-guessers out there, but there are so many what-ifs on either side it could have gone either way.”
