Paul is encouraged by what he heard on Richt’s show last night. Not crazy, just encouraged.
… Don’t get me wrong…he still has to beat UT or we move into DEFCON 1 PANIC. But for one night, I finally heard most of what I wanted him to say about the big picture stuff. Get us tougher, and many other things will fix themselves.
Toughness is good; more toughness would certainly help. But the other thing that needs to happen is that Richt needs to quit coaching like he’s afraid to lose.
So, here’s my suggestion on a good place to start, Coach – that first Tennessee punt from the middle of the field, as you start to send Logan Gray out to field it, stop, call him back and send in A.J. Green instead. You need to start a fire and he’s the most combustible talent you’ve got.
