C’mon, Coach Richt, do you really want to go there?
“The media, whether we liked it or not, wanted to portray Stafford and Moreno as the team,” coach Mark Richt said. “You couldn’t talk about Georgia without talking about Matthew. You couldn’t talk about Georgia without talking about Moreno. They were great players and they garnered that attention through the production that they had.
“Now that those guys are gone, the media doesn’t have any names to hang onto and it’s much more of a team situation here. I think that’s very, very important…”
Blaming the media for a lack of team chemistry is weak, weak beer. Somehow I suspect that Florida will survive the worship of all things Tebow just fine this year. And it’s not like Richt himself hasn’t dealt with this kind of stuff before and kept his team together.
For example, rumor has it this guy had a motor that never stopped.
And I’ve heard that Pollack and David Greene played peewee football together – isn’t that something?

Senator, I’m glad you mentioned this. I didn’t want to be the only one who felt like that (you were being serious, right? just checking).
I remember my UT buddy used to tell me how sick of Pollack/Greene he was, to which I replied, “now you know how we felt when Peyton was around”. Do I tire of hearing the name Tebow? Sure, but I also enjoy watching good football. It happens to all good programs, the key is not fanning the media flames to bonfire levels.
And there’s almost a hint of blaming Stafford/Moreno in Richt’s words. I can’t imagine he really meant to come off like that. He knows both of those guys were quick to praise others.
I didn’t read that as Richt blaming Matt or Knowshon at all.
But I think that pointing a finger at the media because his team didn’t play up to expectations last year is lame.
The reason why the media portrayed them as such is because last year, THAT WAS THE CASE
Stafford led the charge, Moreno ran lights out, and AJ Green caught a LOT
Your coaching last year sucked, Mark. Stop blaming the media because they were right.
How about that Polack interception? Well..it’s David POLLACK. Haha
