It’s been a tough sledding so far for former Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo at Colorado State. It’s not just that the Rams fell to 1-2 on the season after a loss to in-state rival Colorado this past weekend, it’s how they’ve suffered their two defeats. Both have come in overtime.
UGA coach Mark Richt is keeping close tabs on his longtime assistant.
“The good news is it’s brand new and they’re establishing how they’re going to go about their business,” Richt said. “I mean, if you go in there and you start getting beat by 30 or 40 points the first couple of ballgames, that’s not good. Obviously losing is not good. But when you’re being very, very competitive and playing down to the last play of the game, that’s a very positive sign for your program. You can’t always win all the overtime games, but you know you’re battling if you’re in an overtime game.”
Richt said he has not talked to Bobo since Saturday’s excruciating loss but he guesses they will soon.
“I’m sure we’ll end up hitting each other up somewhere along the way when things die down a little bit,” Richt said. “Everybody’s got a lot to do between now and the next game. But everybody once in a while there’s a quiet moment and I’ll be sure to hit him up.”
