This will be the scene on Saturday between the hedges. As Georgia prepares for a blackout in Sanford Stadium, Alabama players are looking forward to a funeral. A video was recently leaked on YouTube from Alabama basically saying that the blackout Saturday night is for Georgia’s own funeral. Richt responded with the following at his post-practice meeting Wednesday:
Richt walked in wearing a black hat, black shirt and black shorts. “I’m going to a funeral,” he said with a mischievous grin.
Naturally, a reporter asked if he was responding to the Alabama video.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he quipped.
Coach Richt may need to spend a little less time imitating a has-been wrestler, and spend a little more time on figuring out how to stop Ingram, Coffee, Jones, Parker-WIlson and company. Should be a classic battle between 2 of the best teams in the country, from the best conference in the country. My game prediction: Who gives a shit about the score, I say Richt puts Stafford in a choke-hold slam by the 2nd quarter after a Bama pick 6.
