Gurley, Autographs, Muschamp, Drinking Contests and the End of the Richt Era – Here’s The Conspiracy


This is the brainchild of perverse conversations between myself, Jason Smith and Daniel Palmer.

Here’s how we got here and where we’re headed:

  1. Greg McGarity and Will Muschamp bump into each other at a Shoney’s in 2006.  Bromance sets in, a plan is planned.
  2. McGarity returns to his alma mater, the University of Georgia, in 2010 as athletic director.
  3. Muschamp takes a head “coaching” job at Florida in 2011.
  4. Todd Gurley arrives at Georgia to play football in 2012.
  5. In 2012, McGarity introduces Gurley to a Florida alum who collects autographs.
  6. In 2013, said Florida alum stalks Gurley at the request of McGarity.
  7. In 2013, Muschamp loses a ton of football games at the request of no one.
  8. In 2014, McGarity comments to Gurley’s friends about how much of a mooch he is.
  9. Later that year, Todd’s friends stand up for themselves.  “No more free rides to Raising Canes for you,” they say.  “Give us gas money.”
  10. They kick Todd out of the car.  The Florida alum approaches.  He offers Todd $5 for his autograph.  He repeats this process 79 times.
  11. The autograph collector calls McGarity, the plan is in motion.
  12. McGarity suspends Todd Gurley indefinitely (***You Are Here).
  13. Despite the seemingly meaningless nature of his “crime,” McGarity refuses to play Gurley for the rest of the season.
  14. Mark Richt loses to Missouri and then to Arkansas.  Florida beats Georgia, so does Auburn and Georgia Tech.
  15. After a crash to the finish line, McGarity fires Mark Richt and Mike Bobo.
  16. Muschamp, fresh of a firing of his own answer the call.
  17. He comes to a one-on-one drinking contest against Jeremy Pruitt in Athens.  The winner will be declared head coach, the loser defensive coordinator.
  18. Pruitt puts up a hell of fight but ultimately Muschamp prevails.
  19. Muschamp and McGarity join hands victoriously in a press conference.
  20. Pruitt vomits behind the mic.
  21. Georgia wins a national championship.
  22. All the dumb fans say, “I told you so. Fire Richt! Fire Bobo!”
