Mark Richt could gain control over something.

This sort of has a sleeping with the enemy feel to it.

Georgia head coach Mark Richt has been nominated for a position on the NCAA rules committee, as confirmed by Georgia senior associate athletic director of sports communications Claude Felton.

The committee is made up of three representatives each from the FBS, FCS, Division II and Division III schools. The FBS is represented by Alfred White, the associate commissioner of Conference USA, Todd Berry, head football coach at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, and Troy Calhoun, head football coach at the Air Force Academy.

The committee has been under scrutiny after proposing a controversial rule designed to slow the pace of play.

Sounds like fun. “Coach Richt?  Bert… uh, Bret Bielema’s on line two.”

On the other hand, maybe we should ponder what effect his acceptance might have on Penn Wagers’ attitude.

  1. If he’s going on the Rules Committee, the goatee, the Johnny Cash black Nike coaches’ outfit, and Soulja Boy on his earphones need to come back for good. We’ll need Evil Richt to deal with Bert, Little Nicky, the Pirate, and the rest of the bunch of whiny head coaches. Maybe he can also slap down Steve Shaw and his crew of the blind mice otherwise knows as the SEC football officials.

    Refresh my memory. Wasn’t Dooley on the committee and instrumental in getting the celebration penalty adopted? Didn’t we get flagged for more than our share of celebrations after that? This may not be a good thing.

      Yes, Dooley is said to be one of the brains behind the celebration penalty,

        UGA lost the Georgia-Alabama game once while Mike Shula was Bama QB directly as a result of a celebration penalty. Bama got the ball at midfield as a direct result of that flag and with a minute to go Shula took ’em down to score the winning TD. If Georgia hadn’t been the victim I would think it would be poetic justice, if VD really was really the guy behind the adoption of that BS rule. As it stands, it was just another bunch of crap that we have had to put up with from SEC refs over the years.

    I know Richt won’t do it, but he could make things hard on Penn Wagers.


  4. Wow, that’s a little harsh, don’t you think?

      No. Penn Wagers is a petty man. If I ever meet him somewhere not at a football game his ass is whipped. Then I will do a celebration dance while chanting 2007, 2007.

    This is the best example ever of “If you can’t beat them, join them”.


  6. I think Richt would be outstanding on the rules committee. I’ve yet to hear any comment from him on a rule that wasn’t the right take.
