Mark Richt is set to begin his new job as the Miami Hurricanes’ head football coach next season and there is a lot of excitement about him getting started. Now, he thinks that his former and current teams are headed on a “collision course” to play each other in a National Championship game.

Finding something more entertaining than seeing those two teams face off with Richt’s history would be hard to do. Both teams have talent on their rosters and good recruiting classes coming in, but it’s hard to agree with Richt that they are on course to play each other in a championship game.
Georgia is definitely closer to a championship appearance than the Hurricanes are at this point in time.
Richt is going to have a lot of work to do in Miami to get the program back to dominance. They certainly have the pieces to take a leap forward next season, but predicting a championship would be a mistake. Miami has to remain patient and hopefully within five or six years they will be on track to get to this point.
