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.
