In the vast scheme of things, it ultimately may not mean much, but this is the best thing I’ve ever heard Mark Richt utter in advance of the Florida game.
“We all know what’s ahead, I don’t even need to say anything about it,” Georgia coach Mark Richt told his players in the locker room after Saturday’s game in footage aired on his weekly coach’s show. “I want you all to get as much rest as you can get, get your minds right, get your hearts right. It’s going to be a war in Jacksonville. … Just get ready. Coaches will be getting ready. I want y’all to get ready. You leaders, I want you to think about what this game means. You’ve been talking about it all offseason since January. ‘Our team, our time, no regrets.’ Well, here we are. We’re at the moment of truth.”
Amen, brother. Skip the fake juice. This is a team that needs to have its collective manhood challenged.
And he said that for public consumption! I only hope he’s even more forceful in practice this week. This whole bunch needs to be moved out of their comfort zone if they’re going to play a competitive game in Jacksonville on Saturday.
