Who says Mark Richt never shows emotion? Remember this?
… For football coach Mark Richt, the top priority has been an indoor facility. For several years, the coach has bemoaned the fact his program is one of only two in the SEC without such a facility (Florida is the other.) In August the normally reserved Richt let loose with his frustration over not having a facility after a practice was rained out.
“It’s just a royal pain to have to deal with this kind of stuff,” Richt said Aug. 24 “It would be nice to have a little indoor facility nearby where you wouldn’t have to spend your whole life trying to figure out a new plan. It’s very frustrating. It gets very old, and I’m about tired of it. Maybe one day we’ll get that done.
Georgia athletics director Damon Evans told the athletic association board Wednesday at its fall meeting that football facility upgrades are a serious possibility.
“We are in the exploratory stages,” Evans said. “Our goal is to do what is the most necessary for our football program to allow us to compete at the highest levels.”High atop that list of necessities are a new indoor facility, a new weight room, new training room and improvements to Sanford Stadium.
“We are out there studying it,” Evans said.
The goal is to prioritize the needs and then present that list to the athletic association board when it meets again in the winter. From there the board, along with Evans’ guidance, will attack those priorities and figure out how to make them into a reality.
Whatever works. I wonder if Dink NeSmith thinks it’s that easy to have your wishes granted.
