Say what you will, Mark Richt is no fool.
… He had a funny recruiting story regarding former Florida State linebacker Ernie Sims, who was down to Auburn, Georgia and FSU and whom Richt saw and liked in junior high.
And he wanted to wear No. 34.
“I’m at Georgia, I just got there,” Richt said, starting to laugh. “The last thing I’m gonna do is give Herschel Walker’s number away. I don’t care who he is.”
If Richt had given in, I wonder what percentage of the fan base would have found that an acceptable tradeoff.
