Al Groh has been fired by Virginia, as expected. I don't want to pretend to know more than I actually do (reading uninformed opinion pieces about RR has taught me this), but the way I saw it was that each year would start off weak, and then Groh would get his team to start caring. 2007 started with a 3-23 loss at Wyoming, a pretty mediocre team. But then they pulled off 7 straight wins, lost to NC State by 5, won 2 more including a 48-0 shellacking of Miami at the last game in the Orange Bowl, eventually finishing 9-4. It seems like he would slack off in the beginning of each season and then start coaching once his seat heated up a bit and then start pulling out the wins, but he just couldn't finish the past 2 years. He wasn't a miserable recruiter, usually getting at least one Rivals100 guy a year. He was just a shitty coach.
What do you all think about Al Groh as well as all the other coaches getting fired or being put on the hot seat at the end of this season (i.e. Hawkins, Kragthorpe, Richt?, etc.)? Have they been given a fair amount of time, are their teams undermanned, or do they just suck? MGoDiscuss.
