Here’s a story that I know will drive some of you crazy.
When Georgia lost to Tennessee and dropped to 2-2 in the SEC, the critics howled. Richt responded by telling his team the story of the two farmers.
“Both were praying for rain to relieve a terrible drought,” Richt said. “One farmer decided to plow his field in case it rained. The other farmer did nothing but continue to hope that it rained.
“So when it finally rained, the farmer who had done the work — had plowed his field — was able to benefit.”
On Oct. 17, Florida lost its first game to LSU. On that same night, Georgia beat Missouri to set up Saturday’s showdown with the Gators by the St. Johns River.
“I just told our guys that if we took care of our business, then we could have a chance to dance in the rain,” Richt said. “And now we have that chance.”
Go ahead, you guys. You know you want to.
