Despite taking his team to the SEC Championship game in three of his six seasons in Athens, winning the league title twice and a BCS game victory, Georgia head coach Mark Richt is not considered one of the Top 20 coaches in college football by Rivals.com.
In the latest Power Rankings released on Tuesday, the national college staff in Brentwood, Tenn., listed Greg Schiano, who has a glowing 30-41 record in the same amount of years at Rutgers
as Richt has a Georgia, as the 8th best at the Division-1A level.
SEC coaches listed in the Top 20 include: Urban Meyer (1), Steve Spurrier (6), Tommy Tuberville (10), Nick Saban (11), Les Miles (14).
Other coaches of interest include Jim Grobe, who finally got his seven year record at Wake Forest over .500 (37-35) last year, and newly hired Tar Heel coach Butch Davis (20), who has not coached a college game in over six years.
Of the 220 players ranked at their various positions, the Bulldogs have just three.
6 - Kicker Brandon Coutu
"Georgia missed Coutu when he was injured for much of 2006."
9 - Cornerback Paul Oliver
"Oliver held Calvin Johnson to one catch last season."
15 - Quarterback Matthew Stafford
"Stafford showed hints of stardom during a late-season surge"
Defensive Coordinator Willie Martinez is listed as the 18th best defensive coach in the land. Rivals.com writes: "Georgia allowed more than 24 points just once last season."
