Be careful what you wish for…

Mark Richt, speaking to the ABH on Saturday:

Georgia’s attention turned to this week’s game with Alabama almost as soon as the final whistle sounded against Western Carolina. Mark Richt got exactly what he wanted out of the Alabama’s game with Arkansas later on Saturday night. Alabama blew a big lead and had to rally in the final minute to win 41-38.

“I hope it’s a game where Alabama has to spend as much energy as they have,” Richt said. “I don’t know if win or lose matters if they can spend themselves mentally and physically.”

Mark Richt on Alabama, the morning after:

“Momentum,” Richt said. “That’s the word. They’ve got it right now. They’ve got a lot of momentum. It’s hard to get it started sometimes, but once you get it started it’s also very difficult to slow down. That’s going to be our challenge.”

UPDATE:  Momentum can sometimes be a confusing beast.

Moments after Alabama slipped past 16th-ranked Arkansas 41-38 Saturday night at Bryant-Denny Stadium, Crimson Tide defensive end Wallace Gilberry tried to put it all in perspective.

It wasn’t easy.

“I’m speechless,” Gilberry said. “To stop the No. 1 Heisman candidate, well, not really stop him, but to beat him — he probably went for two or three hundred yards tonight — but to take a win from him was awesome. It was definitely one of the biggest wins I’ve been a part of. At the same time, I’m still grasping for words.”
