From David Hale’s blog today, per Mark Richt:
“I talked to him in the weight room. Everybody was in there working and I just kind of got in his ear, and I was like, ‘Joe, I really believe in you. I know you can get it done.’ I talked about a guy I had at Florida State named Peter Tom Willis, who waited until his senior year — and of course, we talked about Shockley going through the very same thing. We talked about Peter Tom for a minute, and I said, ‘You know, Pete waited til his fifth year before he got to play, and he broke every passing record that we had at Florida State.’ Joe said, ‘Coach, I’m not worried about passing records. I’m worried about winning games.’ That’s the kind of guy you want.”
If Joe plays as well as he talks, I get the feeling they’ll be fine this year.
