Georgia Fires Willie Martinez; SEC Fans Outside of Athens Mourn

Mark Richt bit the bullet and Willie Martinez and two of his staff are gone. Per The State:

The coach says the "difficult decisions" on the three assistants was necessary for the program.

Defense has been a problem for Georgia (7-5), which is awaiting a bowl bid following its 30-24 win over Georgia Tech in its final regular-season game. Georgia gave up more than 40 points in three games.

This is really a shame; I was hoping Richt and his famed loyalty would come through for us. I would have enjoyed seeing what we could do on a Williefense with Alshon involved and a generally greater ability to score touchdowns instead of field goals. Now I guess we'll have to deal with a coach that can actually get something out of the talent in Athens.
