Bobo Underappreciated

   Mike Bobo is unappreciated. There I said it. If the truth be told, Georgia football is lucky to have him this long. Muschamp and Smart are long gone. And Mike is still coaching them up in Athens. I say thank goodness for that. 
    Why are guys like Christian LeMay coming to play at Georgia? One big reason why is the Quarterback Coach/Offensive Coordinator. " I plan to enroll at Georgia, unless something drastic happens, like Coach Richt or Coach Bobo is gone, or something crazy like that." Hear that?
    You hear a lot about Will Muschamp and Kirby Smart making it big elsewhere, but not a lot about Coach Bobo getting the job done at Georgia. The guy is recruiting with the best of them. Seriously. Lines them up, and then signs them up. Highly-rated QB's pay attention when Mike shows up to visit. LeMay. Hutson Mason. Murray and Mettenberger. Stafford. And his recruiting success doesn't end with the quarterbacks. Teenage football players respect Coach Bobo. It's a shame a portion of the fans don't realize what the 'Dogs have in Bobo.
    Mike is also coaching these guys up. Cox is his only season threw for over 2,500 yards and 24 touchdowns. Stafford performed at such a high level, the Lions were bragging about the job Bobo did with him at Georgia. Pay attention people. Shockley won a SEC Title and went into the NFL. David Greene won more games than any QB in the history of college football (until Colt McCoy). All these guys were coached up by Mike.
    I'll admit, I get frustrated with the fan that barks after a loss, "the play-calling stunk." Don't even get me started. Ignorance. Coach Bobo took an offense last season, with issues on the OL and at TE and a 1st year QB, and had them scoring 29 points a game. 
    What is not to love about Mike Bobo at Georgia? He's a tireless worker. Totally committed to the Bulldog program. While others take the gravy train and leave, he stays. Former Bulldog captain. Georgia high school player of the year. Family man. A real Georgia man. Bulldog fans, you've got one of the top quarterback coaches and OC's in college football.
