Over at The Athletic (you know, you really should subscribe), you’ll find a lengthy piece on Mark Richt ($$), where he says — surprise! — he never wanted to leave Athens.
Now, some of you may choose not to believe that, but you know who did? The people at Miami who interviewed Richt for that job after he was fired.
“His interview was very boring, just to be quite honest,” Vilma says. “There was really not a lot of energy, and in the middle of the interview he kind of apologized because he was still kind of getting over being fired by Georgia. He didn’t expect that to happen.
“I took that as something really positive, because everything that he was saying, No. 1, was genuine, and No. 2, it showed he is committed to the long term. Like, he wanted to stay at Georgia until he retired…”
Not that I expect that to change many minds, but, what the hell, thought I’d share.
