Richt is 90-27 (.762 percent) in nine seasons, 7-2 in bowls, 2-1 in BCS games, 50-22 in the SEC, 41-11 at home, and 33-6 away. So why is Richt on the hot seat?
It could be because he has yet to win a BCS title or has gone 17-8 in the last two seasons. Richt also is 2-7 versus the hated rival Gators, but is 8-1 versus rival Georgia Tech.
The 2009 season was the worst in Richt's nine years at Georgia, his previous being his first year where he went 9-4. The thing about Richt, however is how he can turn an average quarterback into an elite player.
David Greene, D.J Shockley, and Matthew Stafford all became great players due to Richt's teaching. There is also another great thing about Richt.
Every year after his worst year Georgia becomes a national title contender. The 2001 season Richt went 8-4 however, in 2002 Georgia exploded onto the field going 13-1 with an SEC title and a number three ranking.
The 2006 season also was a terrible season for Georgia, going 9-4 that year. The 2007 season Georgia went 11-2 with a number two ranking. Also many thought that Georgia was the best team at the end of the year.
One difference however, Richt's quarterbacks were both sophomores and Murray is a freshmen. So does this mean Richt will something more amazing and win the SEC with a freshmen quaterback?
