but not the supporting cast that was comparable to what Bulldog rosters showcase today.
None of this is to suggest that it is finger snapping easy for the Bulldogs to pick up where they left off in Los Angeles. The competition is too blessed.
And while I have always felt Kirby Smart as a coach is especial, there are no guarantees. A perusal of the record book reminds us that when one gets to the mountaintop, it is more difficult to stay there than it is to get there. It is a fact that winning a spate of championships seems to be cyclical.
To maintain high octane offensive production, there must be recruiting acumen, player development, and a winning culture. Bobo aligns perfectly with the head coach’s objectives. He can recruit and he can coach, and with a few propitious bounces of the ball, Georgia partisans can expect to keep on ringing the chapel bell.
There was so much behind the scenes that influenced Bobo’s decision to leave Athens in the first place. Colorado State, a fine institution located in a very pretty part of the country, does not have a great number of players in the state from which to recruit and does not enjoy a championship tradition.
The increase in pay, however, was significant. Bobo had a chance to run his own program and began his first head coaching job with the greatest of due diligence. Sometimes things don’t work out, but if you love the game, you keep your nose to the grindstone.
Mike Bobo is a very smart football coach. He works hard, has a competitor’s heart, and is imbued with a great love of alma mater. The Bulldog offense is in good hands.
