Using all your weapons

A new persona is born:  Sweet Tooth Richt.

Admittedly, those hot glazed puppies are hard to turn down.

  1. Ah, Phat Phil Phulmer ain’t got nothing on the Rhicter.

    Which reminds me, the Baby Frank Richter is alive and well down in Dothan.

    Those tactics are not approved by the Geneva Convention.

  3. I know it’s probably wishful thinking that both will develop into studs, but the thought of bookend 6’7″, 330 lb tackles a couple years down the road with him and Cleveland sure could be fun to watch.

    • From what I’ve seen of Madden’s tape, Sale has a lot of polishing to do to get the kid SEC-ready.

      That being said, you can’t coach size. 😉

        I think he could be a guard down the road if he keeps his pad level low. Maybe a RT but his feet are not good enough to be a LT.
        From what I have heard, there is a very good chance that we can flip Pat Allen back over to our side

        • From the highlights I saw, looks like he played primarily on the right side in high school. Which surprised me a bit until I finally noticed his QB was left handed, so the right side was actually the blind side for them. Could help his transition some though as I agree I can’t see him being a LT.

  4. They opened up a KK right down the street from me and after the birth of my children, it was the greatest day of my life

    When I was a lad (early 60s), I went with a friend to deliver KKs to people who had ordered during a fundraiser. We went (walking) to a gentleman’s house…he had ordered two doz…..and he told us that he couldn’t eat them because of his health, and gave them to us. After thanking him (I hope we did), we sat on the curb in front of his house and ate the first dozen. This is right up there next to my first kiss and also my first…well, you know..I don’t remember what happened to the second dozen and it has caused me much anxiety throughout my life.

      Atta DGD, Ug. Old farts gotta eat glazed doughnuts. Unfortunately, Doc says I’m one glazed doughnut away from Type II. However, he says it’s all good if I just look at them during sex.

        In that same fix with glucose numbers Cojones, actually somewhat over the line, trying to lower mine naturally by changing some eating/snacking habits and stay off the doctor’s solutions. Has worked in the past but as we get older that might not work as well. Easier to pass up that red neon sign and ice cream than poke myself every day in my remaining years.

        I have always wanted UGA to land the Wisconsin OL recruits, and now we have one. Certainly hope it works out for us but I admit that I worry about 6′ 7″ guys being able to get down low enough to root someone out in short yardage situations. Our 5′ 11″, 315 pound linemen haven’t done it very well so perhaps this will work better. If guys are going to be over 300 pounds I think they should be at least 6′ 2″.

          So we think this guy may not pan out because he’s too tall?

            I wouldn’t take it that far at all, that was just a thought I had about tall OL (I have a similar concern about tall RBs.) There have been many successful taller than average players at both positions but it seems there has to be a different technique for them. I prefer some height at OL over the short, heavy looking ones we have been blessed with the past decade. I have commented that Wisconsin and LSU’s taller OL (6′ 3″ +) always looked more athletic and mobile than the body style of 5′ 10″ to six feet guys we have had that weighed over 300 pounds. I am not pre-judging him at all and I am pleased to have him on board. Very timely pick-up.

              Cartons of malted milk balls are my downfall. They never make it to the candy dish. Had to ask the ‘Nesian to not buy any more, but saw them in a store the other day and gained two pounds before running for the exit.

              Never walk near a candy counter after smoking is a rule I have to live by. Since I now don’t smoke, the rule still applies to eating brownies.

          I believe Dennis Roland had a fairly long career at the next level. You can’t tackle what you can’t see and I think this boy will be blocking the sun for some of the SEC Dlinemen.

    Krispy Kreme (especially when the red light’s on) and numerous Waffle Houses should be key selling points to offensive linemen.

    You’d think that if our staff is that good at using Krispy Kremes as incentives, UGA would have a better relationship with the ACC PD.

    In the 60s, an O Lineman recruiting story that was supposedly true went like this:

    Bear Bryant recruited a Pennysylvania mining country OL who lived with his poor widowed mother. He asked his coaches, when in the vicinity, to drop by and keep in touch with the lad to repel poachers during the summer. One of the coaches did that midsummer and noticed a new car in the drive as he walked up to the unpretentious home and as he knocked on the door. The mother answered and said that he had gone for vacation to some western natl parks the previous week. Knowing that the son would have to be working for them to scrape by, the coach asked further how that was managed to which she replied that a wonderful group of priests had stopped by and took him with them in their travel trailer.

    The tale goes on to say that upon return the next week, the recruit decommitted from Bama and recommitted to ND.

    Nothing is sacred, not even in cfb.
