He’s only so nice.

Even Mark Richt has his limits.

… The story of this trip was about caring and sharing. As a way of transitioning to the more cutthroat world of college football, let’s consider one story Richt told on himself this week.

Yes, there are limits to his Christian charity.

While the Richts were in Honduras, three of their four children were at a religious camp in Missouri. One of the counselors there, a close family friend, had asked the Richts for a ticket to the season opener against Boise State. Katharyn initially said no problem. But when her husband learned that the ticket actually was for a friend of their friend — a Boise State fan — he turned down the request flat.

“He’s a good kid, but I’m not going to help Boise State. We’re going to do battle, and the last thing I want to do is help some of them,” the coach said.

    Will this man ever do anything that will make me not like him? From your title and first line I was afraid he had finally done something that would make me not love the guy, and turns out it is just the opposite. Richt better win this year, cause its gonna be hard to see him go if he doesn’t.

    I would really like to see a little Richt ruthlessness this year and and pound some teams. Not run up the score, mind you, but I’d like to see him refrain from reining in the offense with 10 minutes to go like I’ve seen him do. It would really warm my heart to see a 45-10 score against Florida sometime.

    I’d like to see Richt run up the score. On everybody. I’d like Richt to get a gold tooth. I’d like to see him sporting a full Fu-Manchu beard, shaved head wearing a jet-black pair of shit-kickers with steel toes and two ivory-handled Colt .45’s, in a holster crafted from gator. I’d like to see Richt lead the team out of the tunnel on a glossy-red Harley-Davidson soft-tail, pulling a BBQ smoker. I’d like to see Richt meet Will Muschamp at mid-field prior to kickoff in Jacksonville and give him a headbutt, then take his lunch money.

    I’d like to switch back to decaf…

    Dayyum. Maybe he just made the leap from Coach Richt to Corch Rix. Maybe.

    “We’re going to battle”

    Love. It.

    “Battle” as in “Battle for my job”. And is you disagree then wake TF up.

    How hard could it really be to get a ticket through Boise anyway?
