    This showed up on Rivals and Az's site... the source site is free and an open forum... enjoy

    He may just be trying to drive traffic to the site, but other people are saying there might be something to it. UGA denies it all, of course, they wouldn't want anything getting out until after the season, true or not, so that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

    Bobby Burton posted this, he used to be Rivals Texas guy and one of the main guys at Rivals. Still might be, can't really tell if he's working for both sites.

    Bobby Burton reporting Mark Richt possibly to CU, UGA talking to Muschamp.

    some Texas friend text me that is what is being reported on Bobby Burton's website. Says UGA wants Richt to stay but might not be offering a contract extension so he could leave. The ones that know recruiting websites and Bobby Burton more than I do can probably find it.. I'm lazy. :lol:

    Richt concerns me a little, Dawg fans think he's burnt out and wanting to focus on his missionary work. Any good interviewer should be able to pick that out though.

    I agree, but I think this all smoke until the season ends. Back channels maybe used to see if someone is interested, but at the same time this may be used as leverage for some coaches.

    Hopefully Richt has a phone with a 303 area code.

    I say smoke.

    I still don't see any reason for Mark Richt (or Les Miles) to give up jobs where they are earning HUGE paychecks, to come to CU where they have:

    1) Less salary
    2) Less resources
    3) Less support
    4) Similar expectations

    Richt is making $3.1 million right now. He has a "longevity clause" in his contract, similar to what Barnett had. The stories I have read indicate that it would cost Georgia approximately $7 million to terminate him.

    I just don't think it is very likely that Miles / Richt would give up their cash cows to come to cash strapped CU.

    If Mark Richt is the next CU coach... I really don't know what I'll do. Just the thought of it made me pee myself a bit in excitement.

    You're joking, right? Expectations at an $EC school are way beyond good ole CU.

    Maybe this is a way to pressure the UGA AD into giving Richt an early extension?

    The stuff in this rumor could also be a negotiating ploy by either Richt or UGA, couldn't it?

    no job security, one bad season moving forward and either of them will be dumped.

    That's exactly what I think it is. But it makes it no less real for CU. If he doesn't get the extension, I could definitely see him choose at least 5 years of job security in Boulder over 1 year coaching for his life in Athens.

    yeah, UGA has fired it's last 3 coaches with well above .500 records. including Richt, Ray Goff and Jim Donnan were well above .500 abd bowl teams when UGA canned them. Dan Hawkins was never above .500.

    Donnan was like 4-2 in bowl games or something, i looked this up UGA week. got ****-canned
