Dear Coach Richt,

I'd like to start this letter off by thanking you for giving the Bulldog Nation such high expectations, otherwise, this letter would not even be possible. You brought a winning mindset to Athens and for that, we will be forever grateful. However, there are a lot of changes that need to be made if this football program is ever going to win a national championship.

After the heartbreaking loss to LSU, I decided that I am tired of you and your coaching staff feeding us crap after every game. At first the post-game quotes seem encouraging, but our play on the field suggests that it means nothing. Our team does not improve from week to week; if anything, we've gotten worse, but certainly not better. So please stop telling us that things will get turned around because they won't without some serious changes.

Which brings me to my next point, as classy as you are, you need to throw loyalty down the toilet if it is going to hurt the team. Joe Cox was a feel good story at the beginning of the year, and at this point he is nothing but an overrated (by the coaches) backup quarterback with a lot of heart. Please give Aaron Murray a shot.

Secondly, go back to calling the offensive plays yourself. Mike Bobo is too predictable. Everyone around me in the stands knew what was coming, and it was obvious that LSU did too.

And finally, get rid of Willie Martinez! He is the biggest source of all our losses. Our defense has no idea what they're doing, and they can't tackle to save their lives. Fundamentals don't exist, and that all leads back to coaching.

I'd like to end this letter by saying I am glad that the Bulldogs have found their swagger. I believe that these group of guys are fighters and that they have laid a foundation for future teams to be fighters too.

If we can make the necessary changes, we have the recruits and the head coach to lead us to a National Title.

God Bless,
