Georgia Football: SEC Coaches With No Character, and **MUST WATCH** UGA Hype Video – Daily Dose of Dawg
Coaches in the SEC With No Character
With so many coaches today that are just concerned with winning games and winning games only (Malzahn, Muschamp, Miles), it’s nice to see that Mark Richt knows there are more important things than football.
When asked the question this week, “Who would you want coaching your son if you were no longer coaching?” head coaches around the country voted Mark Richt and Bob Stoops number one. So, if Richt seems to have the most character in the SEC, who has the least?
Will Muschamp – We’ll start with the least of the three evils. Up until recently, I never had much of a problem with Muschamp. Of course, I would never want my kid playing for him or really anybody I cared about anywhere near him, but he wasn’t as bad as some of the others.
This is from the UGA/UF game a few years ago. Muschamp (left) about to rip his player a new one for messing up a play. Richt (right) coming to the defense of one of his players and yelling at the ref after missed penalties left the player’s face bloodied.
Well, in week 1 Will Muschamp did what we all knew he had in him as he lifted the suspensions of three players after only one play was run. Muschamp, after getting a lot of deserved criticism, lashed out at people criticizing his decision and once again showed his true colors. You stay classy big guy.
Gus Malzahn – Of course this guy has to make the list seeing as he’s the coach of the dirtiest program in America. With Auburn, you have to start with all the players that they take in after getting kicked off other teams. I mean, seriously, can you name Auburn’s last decent quarterback who wasn’t kicked off his initial team for stealing? Malzahn’s response is that he’s giving these guys second chances (oh, how nice of you), but we all know he’s just peeing on our legs and telling us it’s raining. All Ol’ Gus cares about is winning ball games, and he’ll do anything to accomplish that.
Take Nick Marshall. After being kicked off of UGA for stealing from teammates, he was of course able to find a new home on The Plains of Auburn, Alabama. Well, Marshall still remains the upstanding citizen he’s always been as this off-season he was caught with marijuana, the same amount as Georgia wide receiver, Justin Scott-Wesley. Marshall was suspended for one HALF as they were playing a decent SEC team, and Malzahn knew he’d be needed. Scott-Wesley, on the other hand, is still serving his suspension.
Les Miles – And saving the worst for last, Les Miles, who will do absolutely ANYTHING to win. Last year, when star running back Jeremy Hill plead guilty to assaulting someone (see here), Miles let the team vote on whether or not to reinstate him. Hmm, I wonder what they chose?
This off-season, star defensive back, Jalen Mills, was arrested for assaulting a woman and knocking her unconscious. Miles response?
“Misdemeanor being what it is, we’re moving forward,” Miles said.
Basically, Mills was not able to work out with the team or partake in any 7-on-7 scrimmages for the summer, but was full go once the season started. Don’t believe me? Story here.
Compare this to Mark Richt, who immediately kicked off Jonathan Taylor after he was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend.
Maybe you remember LSU quarterback, Jordan Jefferson? Well, he was of course reinstated after BRUTALLY assaulting a marine.
So, maybe Mark Richt hasn’t won the “Big One” yet, but at least he has a little bit of character.
