Page has neglected the only statistic that really matters - 8-3. Apparently, he is content with mediocrity. Spurrier was right. Sunday talent languishes at Georgia. Coordinators stay far too long.
Bear Bryant famously said, "A coach is someone who will take his'n and beat your'n, then take your'n and beat his'n."
A poor coach loses a couple of games he's supposed to win each year.
A mediocre coach wins the games he's supposed to.
A good coach wins the games he's supposed to, and steals a couple of extras.
It's crystal clear Richt is neither good nor mediocre. His loyalty to Bobo is a big reason why.

@cornish531: Thanks for a wise and measured post. I disagree with the article, in that I believe it's quite clear what happened in Ferguson. I believe it's also quite clear what happened in Zimmerman/Martin. In both incidents, the criminal died at the scene. But I cannot for the life of me justify choking someone to death when he does not appear to be a threat. It's a shame these cases are lumped together.posted @ Friday, December 5, 2014 - 19:22

@mpd0.59: Pooped yourself with that retort.
Bear Bryant's definition of a coach is ",,,someone who can take his'n and beat your'n, then take your'n and beat his'n."
A mediocre coach wins the games he's he's expected to win. A poor coach loses some expected wins, while a good coach sneaks off with a couple of stolen wins.
It is crystal clear Richt is neither good nor mediocre. His teams have never played up to their talent. He is far too patient, too loyal. He sticks with failing coordinators far too long. To wit, the last two defensive coordinators and the current offensive coordinator. The only calls in recent memory as stupid as the squib kick were the prevent (a la Marion Campbell, bend-but-don't-win) defenses that let beaten opponents back into games last season. Let's see, our defense is winning the game, so let's change everything, rush two or three, and give the QB 10 seconds to throw. Mind numbingly idiotic.
He rewards fifth-year seniors who do not represent the future of the program.
Richt is the perfect coach for those content to settle into comfortable mediocrity.

"Higher minimum wage" is not a "labor-friendly policy." Allowing millions of illegals to take American jobs is not a "labor-friendly policy."
Perhaps American black voters are tired of voting adverse to their interests.posted @ Saturday, November 29, 2014 - 17:39
A good coach wins the ones he's supposed to, plus a few extra along the way.
Has Richt been fired yet? If not, why not?posted @ Saturday, November 29, 2014 - 17:25
Be aware, "affordable" is liberal code for "paid for by others."

I'm happy to see that secular-progressives have found religion. That is to say, powerful, emotional, committed belief, unencumbered by scientific underpinning.
We're told to fear warming that's not happening, rising seal levels that are not rising, shrinking sea ice that's not shrinking.
Believe me, and not your own eyes. I guess that goes for our 'improving economy,' as well.

Ah, the tolerance of the enlightened left comes shining through. How about those who'd like to become rich? Much tougher in the current clime. The wealthy are the most maligned minority others would like to join.

Congress? An inconvenience.
The Constitution? An obstacle to be overcome.
Fifteen times as many executive orders as any other president in history.
If only Obama were as smart as he thinks himself to be.
If only Obama were as tough on our enemies as he is on our allies.
If only gall were courage, he would be a great man.

Yet another multiple gun murder in a mall. This time, it was in Maryland, a state with very strict gun control laws. How long, how many lives will it take until gun grabbers realize gun control takes weapons only from law abiding folks?
Gun free zone = happy hunting ground.
The overall US murder rate is one of the highest in the world. However, when you omit statistics from areas with the strictest gun control - D.C., New York, Chicago, etc. - we are near the lowest in the world.
For heaven's sake, folks, figure it out.posted @ Wednesday, January 29, 2014 - 09:09
It's "the defining challenge of our time," says President Barack Obama...
whose policies have made it much worse than ever. But he'd like to do so much more. Perfect. If only he were as smart as he thinks himself to be.
Here's one glaring error:
"Q. Does it matter if some people are much richer than others?
... It can slow economic growth, in part because richer Americans save more of their income than do others."
No, they invest more. That stimulates the economy and provides jobs and growth.
Another flaw in the statistics underlying this analysis:
"Saez's figures don't include government benefits, such as Social Security or food stamps, or employer payments for health insurance, that benefit the less-than-rich."
The lowest income quintile spends, on average, 140% of their annual income. Guess where the extra money comes from - you and me.
Help get lower income Americans off the plantation. Vote conservative.posted @ Monday, January 27, 2014 - 08:27
Summary: I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.
