“I don’t know,” Richt said with a laugh. “I just think we’re really young in so many ways, and there are a few veterans that understand the deal. But I don’t know how good we are, quite frankly. We had a good performance, we had one good game, and even in that one game there were some things that need to be corrected. So I’m not gonna get too excited yet.”
I’m glad of that, but as a Dawg fan with a long memory, I remember the aftermath of games like the 2004 smoking of LSU and AJ Green’s coming out party against Arizona State. Georgia doesn’t always handle success well under Richt.
It’s a must-win game for South Carolina and it’s in Columbia. Very dangerous, in other words. Hopefully the coaches will take part of the next two weeks to remind the players and themselves that early season press clippings are BS. If that lesson takes, we may be looking at a special year.
