I’m amused to see that at least one SECCG story has some staying power.
Richt, one of the more mild-mannered coaches in the business, blistered a reporter last season following the 32-28 loss to Alabama in the SEC championship game over a question about Richt and Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray struggling in big games.
Jenkins said that’s a side of Richt that his coach doesn’t show to just anybody.
“He was broken down, and that’s why he went after that reporter,” Jenkins said. “I promise you that he’s as hungry as anybody to do what we all want to do around here, and that’s win another championship.”
Remembering the silly fuss Oliver put up about the Brandon Smith non-suspension non-story last year, I can’t help but wonder if he’s as excited about Georgia’s spring break this go ’round. After all, if something happens, it’s another opportunity to go off half-cocked. Attention is good. Then again, if nothing happens, he won’t run the risk of saying anything for which he’ll need to apologize.
That risk/reward stuff can be a bitch to calculate sometimes.
