This is the idlest of speculation, but, is it possible, with all of his talk about the neutral field, travel and weather, that Mark Richt is sandbagging us about this year’s Florida game? That all this focus on whining is just a smokescreen?
I ask this in response to an e-mail I received from a reader whose mom just attended the most recent Football 101 clinic the team hosted. She found the following poster plastered all over the weight/locker room:
So while he’s got us wringing our hands over whether we need to keep making the trip to Jax, he’s got the team getting after giving the GPOOE™ a reason to make another one of those teary-eyed, post-game motivational speeches.
I like it. Needless to say, a win this year has the potential to rank right up there with the 1985 game in terms of personal satisfaction.
If he pulls it off, we’ll need to come up with another persona for the man – Sneaky Richt? Devious Richt? Mr. Misdirection?
