One other interesting quote from Richt at today’s presser came in response to a question about the changes with the strength and conditioning coaches.
… Like something I mentioned before, and by no means am I saying it’s just the strength area that we need to improve on when it comes to winning the fourth quarter and finishing, because coaching has to do with a lot of things. I’m sure that will be a big emphasis in our program is to make sure we truly finish the drill. We say finish the drill but are we really doing it? Did we do it this year? We did not.
Interesting, because instead of the usual offseason smoke up our derrieres we tend to hear about leadership and getting after it, here we have Richt acknowledging a problem. Now whether the steps he’s taken are the right ones to correct the problem is a big unknown at this point, but one thing’s certain. You can’t fix something if you don’t first acknowledge it’s broken. I’m just hoping that it’s this year’s version of directional kicking.
