Is 'merely good' enough?

That's the question you should be asking if you are willing to look at Mark Richt, in his face at a function, and say I want you to lose your job. Is 'merely good' enough?

Don't use atrocious.
Don't use embarrassing.
For heaven's sake, please don't use mediocrity.

Merely good.

No amount of selective parsing of statistics will change the total wins, winning seasons, SEC championships, SEC championship appearances, or wins over Tech, Tennessee, Auburn, and even Florida.

And I'm not making the we can't chance being another Tennessee argument. To me, discussions like Westerdawg's yesterday are more about us as Georgia fans than about Mark Richt (or more accurately what Mark Richt has done as a coach for Georgia's program).

And if you read Westerdawg's post, that is what he's saying:
I'm bummed to say it, but if the program moves on without him.  Then I'm fine with it.  If he wins the SEC East this year, and stays around. I'm fine with that too.  But my patience has worn beyond thin.
But if we are going to have the discussion, we have to call it what it is: We as a fanbase are not satisfied with good. We demand something we've only had twice in our existence. Once with The Gold Standard in college running backs. Once with our current coach.

And we demand it now.

So let's call it what it is and stop using terms that'll somehow justify our approach. Be forward and say we no longer accept just winning. We have to win titles or else.
