Richt ran O'leary out of the state and got Gailey fired. Out of the 3 GT coaches that faced Richt, at least CPJ got a few wins.
Yeah, Richt ran O'Leary into one of the best coaching jobs in all of sports.
I hope you were drunk when you typed this.
Which part of it did you not understand?
O’leary Had three ranked teams in a row that all beat the dwags. He was saying that O’leary Left and wasn’t run out.
Further more Richt didn’t start coaching till O’Leary’s last year.
O'leary got fat off beating Jim Donnan, when Richt showed up he beat O'leary by 2 touchdowns his first year in Atlanta. If O'leary would have stayed Richt would have owned him for years because Richt's 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th year teams were much better than his first year team. O'leary was smart to bail out when he did.
Maybe. Maybe not. I wouldn't use imaginary seasons to try and prove a point.
The 2009 Richt mutts were so bad on D, they fired their DC after he shut us down and the 2015 mutts were so bad, they canned Richt after the season. Both those teams beat us.
O'Leary would not have lost in 2009 or 2013.
Depends if he had Ralph or not. 2001 showed that Ralph was responsible for our offensive success. Without him, 2001 was a huge underachievement.
Pretty much this.
O'Leary with Friedgen at Tech: 34-14 (.708)
O'Leary w/o Friedgen at Tech: 18-19 (.486)
O’Leary > PJ
It’s not even close
Fixed. Just for you.
Hard to say what would have happened but I doubt O'Leary loses to the 4th and 5th year Richt teams. I don't think O'Leary would put up with a Nix coordinator, either.
The 2001 team was very solid (better than any Chan team wrt talent) but it turned out to be a weird year with a bunch of close conference losses. ND offered an Irishman a job. That's why he left. It's just patently stupid and disingenuous as öööö to say Richt "ran him off".
You could make a solid argument that Richt ran Chan off but even then it wasn't just UGA, it was how the end of 2006 played out and his inability to develop a QB.
It would have been hard for anyone at GT to keep up with Richt's first few teams, but O'Leary left because he is a good Irish Catholic and I am pretty sure you go to hell if you turn down Notre Dame.
O'leary didn't beat Richt, couldn't beat FSU, never beat VT, lost to Miami
Both got their poop pushed in by LSU in the Georgia Dome. When you sit back and truly look at it honestly they are very close.
Richt's 4th and 5th year teams both finished ranked in the top 10. O'leary's best ever team finished the season ranked 11th in the coaches poll. O'leary couldn't out recruit UGA when Donnan was there, and Richt would have out recruited him even worse in those years leading up to those seasons.
This reminds me of an interesting development in common law jurisprudence. In medieval England, the idea was that the jury *should* know the accused – the theory being that knowing the accused was the best way to determine if he committed the crime. But over the centuries, that opinion gradually reversed, so know the idea is that the jury *should not* know the accused – the theory being that knowing the accused makes it hard to separate your personal feelings from the facts of the case.
That is interesting. I don’t think it applies. I can understand that many think it’s personal feelings, but it’s not. Me thinks the boys there now are having a giant revelation.
