I started off by saying…

I started off by saying… no f*****g way….

Then, I thought about it…

I read that The University of Georgia has signed a contract with head football coach Mark Richt that will pay him a salary of $2 million+ a year.

“Georgia’s Mark Richt is back among the top-paid head football coaches in the Southeastern Conference with a new two-million-dollar-a-year deal. UGA’s athletic board of directors approved a new eight-year, 16 million dollar contract for Richt yesterday. The deal also includes incentives if his players meet high graduation standards.” Story from WTVY

We’ll if Mark can get the team to the summit of the “Athens Mountain”, then more power to him. I went to UGA and I thought the Dawgs were the Icon of the University. If alumni love the Dawgs, they’ll love to send their money back to the “homeland”. The homeland needs all the money it can get. So, pay the man so the homeland can get even more! That’s just the way I see it – and I DON’T have season passes to the Dawgs.

“Richt’s 2005 team won its second SEC championship in the last four years. Before Richt’s arrival, Georgia had not won a conference crown title since 1982.”

Am I off base? Y’all can fight it out. Oh, and by the way, real estate in the Metro Athens area is WAY over priced!!!

    Nope. Mark Richt should be paid the big bucks for what he has done with the program. On a completely different note….Fire Chan Gailey!

    As a faithful season ticket holder, I say pay Richt whatever it takes to keep him in Athens. Two SEC championships in four seasons is quite a feat and more than I dared dream when Goff and Donnan were running things.

    Now if we can just start beating Florida more often…
