No, that’s not some random blog commenter chastising the Georgia coaching staff for failing to remind Josh Harvey-Clemons to bat a Hail Mary pass down at the end of the Auburn game.
It’s Howard Schnellenberger referring to the end of another Auburn game.
In an interview with WDRB in Louisville, retired coach Howard Schnellenberger said Chris Davis’ 109-yard, game-winning field goal return for a touchdown was “the greatest thing in the world” to happen to Alabama coach Nick Saban because “he needed a big serving of humility.”
“He’s been Mr. Perfect. He’s been Mr. Arrogant,” Schnellenberger said in an interview with WDRB’s Rick Bozich. “There’s no reason for that. Every coach all the way down to Little League knows that you cover that field goal.”
I actually think that’s something Richt would have done under similar circumstances, but no matter. The real point is that no coach is always perfect under pressure.
