Darren Epps of the Chattanooga Times Free Press wrote an opinion piece in Tuesday's paper comparing Alabama's decision to terminate Mark Gottfried vs. UGA's decision to wait a little longer to address the Felton situation.
All of his points are valid. Earlier I wrote that there isn't much upside in terminating your head coach in the middle of the season if your in UGA's situation. That is to say a roster without a lot of talent won't suddenly become world class by simply removing the head coach.
However, the biggest positive that comes from a mid-season transition is addressed in Epps' piece. It gives you the time to get organized and properly research your replacement opportunities.
Closer to home, Chip Towers discusses the tough road ahead for Felton, and Mark Bradley asks which program is worse....Tech or UGA?
