I read the same quote that Mark Richt gave the AJ-C’s Tim Tucker that Groo cites in his post here, but thought Richt was being somewhat facetious. At least I hope he was.
On whether the Georgia-Florida game should be played in Georgia sometimes: “I don’t know what’s going to happen. But when people ask me the question, ‘Do you really think [Jacksonville] is a neutral site?’, I say, ‘No, it’s not neutral.’ When you play in the state of Florida every year –- we fly, they drive; it’s hotter for us, it’s cooler for them. It’s played in a stadium that [used to be called] the Gator Bowl. But what the heck? If nothing else, we’ll make Jacksonville pay more to keep it there. . . . I wouldn’t feel bad having a ‘neutral site’ game in Georgia – in the Georgia Dome.”
I mean, seriously, “it’s hotter for us, it’s cooler for them”? Please tell us you were kidding, Coach.
