I love Mark Richt.
There's really nothing else to say beyond that. I know people want statistical data to support that statement, given the recent 6-7 record, the loss of multiple tailbacks, the "talent mismanagement" of players like Brandon Miller, Kiante Tripp and Richard Samuel.
But, I'm not going to offer any stats today.
I'm simply going to say, that for a man who is coming off a 6-7 season, facing all kinds of fire and anger from a fanbase, and watching his players make team-altering decisions, his attitude is simply awesome.
“greater days are coming. The best is yet to come.”
For me, that's simply a fantastic quote. He didn't say, "Better days are coming" he didn't say "it's gonna be ok"...he said "Greater days are coming. The best is yet to come."
This is a guy who has coached players who will be known as all-time Georgia greats like David Pollack, David Green, AJ Green, etc....he's a guy who's won 2 SEC titles and 2 Sugar Bowls. Still, he feels Greater Days are coming. This speaks to only one thing, folks...The BCS. Despite all the hate and doubt swirling around him, he has basically just told you that he's going to bring the Crystal Football to UGA.
And I love that.
