Have You Told Your SEC Coach You Love Him Today?

I thought about this yesterday as serious momentum grew to have a planned March On Baton Rouge to show support to LSU coach Les Miles. Does the SEC have the best coaches are what? I mean, if Tommy Tuberville leaves Auburn for Texas A&M, then Auburn will be the poorer for it, and the real fans know it. If our man Les Miles goes to Michigan, then .. well, .. just when you get a perennial superpower ... it ... it just aint fair!
So, have YOU told your SEC coach how much you love him?
I mean, you got Mark Richt at Georgia who can pretty much run for governor in the Peach State right now (who needs water, they can drink Koolaid. RED Koolaid!). And the coach has changed his whole persona lately and is giving love as well as getting it. No vision solidified this to me more than the tongue-thrust he gave his wife after the Florida game. His players have responded to his loosy-gooseyness by going out and playing some serious ball for him, and as I said before UGA is the SEC's Most Dangerous Team, and it goes all right back to Richt. He's gotten some flak over the last few weeks from other coaches and commentators about how he's conducted himself and allowed the Bulldogs to conduct themselves (the 15-minute excessive celebration against Florida?), but the fans, the people that matter absolutely love it, so we've got to give it to him.

Same goes for Florida Coach Urban Meyer. Even though his star has fallen a little bit since the Gators have been shut out of the BCS and SEC title chase, Urban has gotten some serious love from the fans in Gainesville this year, and he's deserved it. Not only has he faced the toughest expectations of ANY coach this year (how many coaches have been told it's repeat or bust?), he's managed to put together a still-feared college football team. And did I mention he manages Superman?
Other coaches deserving of love: Sylvester Croom, Nicklaus Saban, Rich Brooks, Steve Spurrier.
