All Quiet on the Willie Martinez and Co. Front
Rumors were rampant that Willie Martinez would resign as defensive coordinator after the Georgia Tech game. That hasn’t happened yet, and Mark Richt and UGA are very quiet at the moment.
Giving credit where credit is due, Willie Martinez and the Georgia defense performed admirably against Georgia Tech and contained, if not stuffed, their vaunted triple-option offense.
There have been other great performances under Martinez’s tenure, but there have been plenty of defensive lapses also. At Tennessee in 2007 and 2009, Florida in 2008 and 2009, Georgia Tech in 2008, at Arkansas in 2009, South Carolina in 2009, Alabama in 2008 and so on.
Richt canceled his Sunday night media teleconference, and no statements have been issued by UGA. It would seem that some coaching changes are imminent, especially on the defense. The Dawgs have been out-coached and out-schemed too many times in recent memory.
So what is the delay? Is Richt second-guessing a previously made decision? Or is he waiting for the right time to announce changes? Maybe he wants more time to bask in the glow of the victory at Georgia Tech this weekend. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that.
What do you think will happen, and when will it happen?
