Good News For Richt At Georgia

Writers can talk about a coach being on the hot seat.  Talkshow callers can scream, moan, whine and complain.  Messageboards can melt.  And athletic directors can give votes of confidence.

But in today’s sports world, it’s money that matters.  (Cue Randy Newman.)  And according to UGA officials, the amount of money coming in for Bulldog season tickets in 2010 is “very, very similar to 2007 and 2009.”  (In ’08, the Dawgs were preseason #1s and that led to higher than normal ticket sales.)

That, of course, is very good news for Mark Richt.  Despite concerns over the direction of Georgia’s program and it’s recent recruiting class, UGA fans are still buying tickets.  That shows support for Richt, his staff, and his ability to steer the Bulldogs’ boat.

As the “dean of SEC coaches,” Richt is in danger of fans growing tired of him.  There are more complaints now on the internet and on talk radio than at any previous point in his tenure.  More columnists and media personalities in and around Georgia have openly questioned the future of UGA’s football program.

But as long as fans continue to donate money and buy tickets, Richt will be Georgia’s coach.  And that’s a good thing for the Bulldogs.
