As compliments go, this post at MrSEC.com about Mark Richt’s character is about as good as it gets. Just a sample:
… Fans want undefeated seasons. The media want headlines. Richt may or may not supply enough of either to please those two camps, but he does provide something else in bunches — class.
While Nick Saban and his disciples build moats around their programs and while Urban Meyer makes threats and shoots dirty looks, it’s good to know that there’s someone like Richt in the SEC coaching fraternity.
It’s one thing for a man to say, “I want my son to play for that man.” Many folks used to say that about Bobby Knight for gosh sakes.

Read the whole thing. As a fan of the program, you’ll be glad you did.
