Georgia Football: Why Mike Bobo Should Take the Colorado State Job if Offered


  1. He’s under-appreciated at Georgia.  Look at fan sentiment and look at his compensation.  Now contrast that with records he continues to set.  Does he have a lot of talent at his disposal?  Yes.  But he gets that talent.  Further, as this year showed, he adapts to that talent.  He may get a raise out of this interview with Colorado State and he may decide to stay, but shouldn’t he get a raise without this song and dance?  He orchestrated the SEC’s best offense in a year following the departure of the best QB (statistically) the league had ever seen and while going without the best player in the country for most of the year.
  2. Colorado State is a great first gig.  They’ve got enough momentum to benefit in recruiting, but expectations remain reasonably low.  He would have success there.
  3. He’s a big name there.  Period.  Jim McElwain was a big hire for them.  Mike Bobo would be as well.
  4. It is a stepping-stone job.  See: McElwain.  But seriously, do well at Colorado State and other schools will call within a few years.  Is Georgia Southern (who had interest in Bobo previously) that type of job?  Maybe, maybe not.  But Colorado State definitely is.
  5. Bobo needs a stepping stone.  The danger for Bobo is getting hotter and hotter and jumping to a job that’s too big (at least right off the bat).  Ask Muschamp what that’s like.  Who was the last coordinator to jump to a HC role at a major, major program and have success?  I’m not being a smart-ass.  I’m actually asking.  The only ones that come to mind are folks who wait forever and then move in (Jimbo).  Bobo isn’t Richt’s successor if the Dawgs hire from within in the future; Pruitt would be.  Just look at the paycheck.

 

 

To be clear: no part of me wants Bobo to leave.  Not even an ounce.  I think he would be incredibly hard to replace.  He was born in Augusta, played four years at Georgia served as a G.A. for two years, went a away for one and came back in 2001.  Further, he’s forty years old and has been the offensive coordinator at a national power for eight seasons.  That’s a hard resume to top.  And the on-field performance will be equally difficult to replicate.

Georgia Football Recruiting: Dawgs Miss on Nation’s Top Player


Josh Sweat, the nation’s #1 recruit per 247Sports, will not be a Bulldog.  He’ll be a Seminole.

 

That’s all I have to say about that.  How’s that for analysis?

Georgia Football: There’s Never Been a Better Time to be a Bulldog Football Fan


If there’s ever been a better time to be a Georgia Football fan, I don’t know when it was.

Whether you agree or not, a strong case can be made that Georgia has a steady head coach at the helm, tons of talented youngsters and a heck of a recruiting class on the way.  We’re heading into the offseason, but before we get there we get to watch the Dawgs take on two of the more hated figures in the Peach State—Bobby Petrino and Todd Grantham.  What’s not to like?

And even if you cling to prior periods of dominance, it’s never been easier to access those memories than it is now.  After all, The UGA Vault has been updated to take you on a stroll down Memory Lane with no more than the swipe of a finger.

For those who have read our site or listened to our podcast for a while, this may not seem like a big deal.  We talk about The Vault all the time.  But for the new readers out there (and we have quite a few), it’s time you learn about our sponsor.

I downloaded The UGA Vault several years back because the iPhone app promised to bring the greatest highlights in Georgia’s storied history to my fingertips.  I paid $9.99 for it.  In retrospect, I’d gladly pay double for the app.

But a lot has changed since then.

  • First and foremost, The UGA Vault is now completely free.
  • Secondly, The UGA Vault has more content than ever before, including recent highlights.
  • Thirdly, The UGA Vault has added a host of mini-documentaries and expanded upon its content offering.
  • Finally (and most recently), The UGA Vault has undergone a massive update to make use more functional.

 

So even if you’re a long-time UGA Vault user, check it out, get the update and explore.  And for what it’s worth, you should know that we’re not paid by the download or by the click.  Financially speaking, we don’t benefit in any way from you downloading The UGA Vault.  But the fine folks with National Collegiate Sports Archives (the company that created and maintains The UGA and The Auburn Vault, not associated with the NCAA!!!) want this app to spring-board a broader initiative to work with other schools.  Give the app a try, and I think you’ll see why.

Additionally, I think you stand to gain a lot from The Vault as a Georgia fan.  You can search for highlights, interviews and documentaries by player name, opposition, coaching era, etc.  Want to watch highlights of Frank Sinkwich’s Heisman season in 1942?  You can do that.  Want to watch highlights of Georgia against Bobby Petrino’s Arkansas squads?  You can do that.  And if you don’t find the clip you’re looking for, you can submit it and they’ll get it together.

So download The UGA Vault for free right here on Android or iOS.  You’ll thank us later, and you’ll remember that being a Bulldog is a blessing.  In the meantime, enjoy this UGA Vault exclusive on the meaning of history.
