I swear, for all the days that I’ve complained that Mark Richt burned through the good will he banked from the fan base, there are times when I wonder if he couldn’t do a lot better than us. Like, say, when I read this:
A caller to Richt’s radio show on Monday night wanted Barber to wear something other than orange shoes.
“They’re not orange,” Barber said of the Nike Vapor shoes. “On the Internet, they were like solar red. They do look more pink than anything, but I love the cleat. It fits great and is really lightweight.”
Barber said his teammates haven’t said a word about them.
Richt called the color “Georgia peach.”
No word on whether Richt muttered “are you effing kidding me?” under his breath upon hearing the complaint.
