Georgia Football: Bobo Gone?
Over the last 12 hours, news of Mike Bobo being targeted by Colorado State has gone from speculation to rumor to confirmed by Athletic Director Greg McGarity. This morning, Seth Emerson (among others) reported confirmation, and the reaction from the Bulldog fans I know has been disheartening to say the least.
News: Mike Bobo is interviewing for the vacant head coaching position at Colorado State, according to UGA A.D. Greg McGarity.

So many people have come out of the woodworks to say they are hoping he takes the job, that they want Bobo gone. I am also full of hope, but of a much different variety. I hope that he’s using this offer to step his pay up in Athens, and that the architect of the number 1 scoring offense in the SEC gets more properly compensated.
Sounds like we are about to find out if UGA Admin is fully committed to Mike Bobo or not. SEC’s top scoring offense with 40th in nation pay.

40th in nation pay? COME ON MAN. If he goes, I obviously wish him well, but I hope this is a move to get his pay more in line with newest coordinator Jeremy Pruitt. Bobo is a commodity that is hunted every year, but this is the first time I can recall such envoys getting to the interview stage. Now, I’ll wait for someone to correct me in the comments on that, or just tell me why I’m wrong about Bobo because #FireBobo. Whatever happens, no one should debate that Mike Bobo as both a player and a coach has been a damn good dawg.
Love this? Hate it? Think I’m an idiot? Don’t just curse at me under your breath, head to the Dude You Podcast iTunes page, and leave a 5-star review to make sure I know it, and have your voice heard on the air.
