This is a rather curious thing to say.
Richt was asked just one question during his allotted 10-minute window on the weekly call and it was about whether the Bulldogs had settled yet on a starting quarterback for Saturday’s game against Kentucky. He said that Greyson Lambert and Brice Ramsey are “repping most” with the No. 1 offense. He said that Bauta, who started against the Gators’ last week, “has gotten some work as well. We haven’t ruled that out.”
Then he offered this intriguing aside without prompting:
“Part of last week (here he pauses to laugh) was just the fact that some of the guys, I was just curious, if there was any secrets anymore, you know? And guys, somehow things always slip out through social media or whatever it is. So I was just curious if everybody could keep it under their hat.”
I don’t think that was meant to be taken seriously, but I also think Richt’s seriously overestimating the fan base’s sense of humor these days. Win a few games first – hell, score some points first – and maybe we’ll appreciate the wisecracks more.
