What would Evil Richt do?

So James Franklin, after joking about drinking Mai Tais with Todd Grantham at Disney World, went on to note how grown up everyone is.

“I think everyone else is going to talk about it, but I know Coach Richt’s going to focus on playing the game and the fundamentals and that’s what we’re going to do,” Franklin said. “It was an emotional, passionate, great game last year. But we’re going to do what we do every single week and focus on the game, and I would think that’s what Coach Richt is going to do as well.”

Eh, he’s probably right about that.  Boring, though.

Now I’m not here to advocate another Celebration moment – although that remains, and will always remain, totally worth it.  But there have to be a few more subtle moves with an edge that Richt could take if he wanted to get on Franklin’s nerves.

For example, were it me, I’d name Shawn Williams and Kwame Geathers co-captains.  Send a little message right from the coin flip ceremony.

Suggestions, anyone?

    Me thinks Mr. Franklin is down playing the whole thing because he knows his team is outmatched and this could quickly become a blood bath if he doesn’t watch out.

    Where’s the dang “like” button?

  3. Hogbody Spradlin

    Show the hit on Kwame, Shawn Williams’s woofing, and the post game with Coach Grantham on the Jumbotron?

  4. TennesseeDawg

    The road to the Tennessee state championship begins Saturday

  5. Hobnail_Boot

    Hell, make Josh Dawson the captain.

  6. Cojones

    “Evil” Richt my ass! Put Blut’s together with Hob’s suggestion and you have reality evil. Good for the two of you.

  7. Cojones

    In warmups, you could do mock slow motion hits behind the knees. Of course it should be choreographed by Grantham.

    • Cojones

      Strap dummies to the tackling sleds with their backs turned. Put that on the Jumbo showing hard hits from practice all week.

    Have an assistant coach’s wives Beauty Contest before kickoff.

    This is easy and doable. After being up by 3 TDs, put kwame in a fullback and Shawn in at tailback and run and iso right up right guard 4 times (if needed) on 1st and goal.

    If I’m Grantham, I’d pull a Ron Zook. Sprint out of the tunnel and over to the Vandy sideline to shake Franklin’s hand.

    Evil Richt will just take care of the situation on the scoreboard. See: Auburn 2011.

    • Russ

      Mark Richt will remember this and it will always be a big deal to Mark Richt.

    • Mean Machine

      This is the winner. Plain and simple. Although I would pay any amount of money for Shawn Williams to de-cleat someone on the first play, then stand up and shoot finger guns at Franklin.

  12. DawgPhan

    just win the ball game and get out of there with everyone healthy. who gives a shit about sticking it to vandy.

    • Bevo

      Yep – I’m not in favor of any tricks or “Evil Richt” ploys. I say just whip the hell out of them on the football field and go about our day happily.

      Do we, Georgia, really need to get involved in ticky tacky ploys with Vanderbilt?

      • Does that imply there are some teams Georgia does need to involve with ticky tacky ploys? ;)

        • Comin' Down The Track

          You bet your @$$ it does.

        • Bevo

          It wasn’t meant to imply that. The first line of my post was more general on that.

          But, for the record, I don’t consider the black jerseys some kind of “Evil Richt” ploy to affect game performance. I consider it something that is fun for the fans and players. I say let them enjoy it once every season or so.

          I think the media and fans ran with the idea that the black jerseys somehow make or break the team’s performance. (I don’t agree that it makes much difference.)

        With you Bevo–no need to go overboard on this one–We got Bigger Fish to fry coming up–just go about our business-come out with a W and get ready for Tn. SC and the gators—-save the special emotion for fla–TCB till then–then turn it loose

  13. Nate Dawg

    How about instead of running thru a “G” they run thru a big sign that reads “Anchors Up!” or even better – “Anchors Up Yours!”.

  14. Spike

    Suit up Grantham….

  15. Irwin R Fletcher

    I’d just like him to use the phrase “drop anchor” in his media meetings all week as a subtle jab at the stupidity that is anchor down. I’m told by urban dictionary that drop anchor means to defecate. #dropanchor

    I sense the kharmic Bitches are coming into alignment in a propitious way.

    Anchor Up they ass, and don’t let up.

  17. Scorpio Jones, III

    Just so you know, the preliminary propitious kharmic Bitches feelings do not mean I will not be worrying about Vandy all week, right here, all week.

  18. Scorpio Jones, III

    It was a set back, extra worry-steps today should bring things into their proper Tuesday perspective :-(

  19. Hey folks let us not overdo this. Let us plain and simple win. We can indeed bring some of our frat paddles and whip the fanny of Funk, follow by a good kick to his ass, and be sure to bring UGA IX to get a good piece to boot. And I am just starting with the above as the Hors D’oeuvres. You can provide the rest of Saturday’s viand.

    • Cojones

      Uga missed that training when he didn’t take a piece of Adam’s leg with him when he turned his ass to Adams and trotted off the field after the collaring ceremony.

  20. hunkerdowndawg

    Here’s an idea… Have Grantham scheme it so that the ‘Dores’ anchor stays down the whole game and their “ship” never gets any wind in her sails. In other words, shut their asses out. And then, let’s make sure to Blame Bobo for scoring over 40 for the fourth straight game.

    For the record, I fully support Williams and Geathers as captains. They deserve it and it would be teh awesome.

  21. UGA70

    While I like all of the above suggestions, especially “Well, hello Clarice…” I sure as hell don’t want anyone suspended for any future games for doing something stupid like Swearinger did. And I suspect the refs will be itching to punish us for anything they can get away with.
