Today is a very sad day for the Dawg Nation. We're not talking about the country we personally live in, but Georgia Bulldawg Nation. CMR (Coach Mark Richt for those who aren't in the know) was let go from our beloved Bulldawg squad as head coach this past weekend. No, we haven't won the Southeastern Conference title since 2005, but Coach Richt holds an overall record of 145-51.
Despite this overall winning record, wins and losses will never define CMR. He will be known for the impact he had on his players and most of all his faith and trust in the Lord. David Pollack, former NFL player and former Bulldawg, said it best about CMR on Twitter: Coach Mark Richt taught me a lot of great things about life, but the biggest was to always trust God. He talked the talk and walked the walk.
We're sad at our house, but we'll continue to be loyal supporters of the Bulldawgs . . . until a team somewhere decides to be the Labradors! (Now, that would be a great team to support! Wonder why no one has thought of that yet?)
Go Dawgs! Sic 'em! Woof! Woof! Woof!
