Richt tested by frustrated Georgia fan, snaps back

A frustrated Georgia fan tested Mark Richt last night in front of 250 people during the Macon Bulldog Club.

Upset with the running game and play-calling, some clown wanted answers.

Richt wasn’t in the mood and responded, “I’ll tell you this, and you’re certainly close to an expert in football, I’m sure you are.”

“I see your frustration, I understand your frustration. I wasn’t born yesterday, I’ve coached football for 25 years, so I know what the hell I’m doing, OK?”

Lightening the mood, Richt then joked, “Excuse me for saying ‘h-e-double heck,’ I know there’s a media member here. Can you just say that I know what the heck I’m doing? Just so my Sunday school class doesn’t give me grief?”

According to Michael Lough, Richt later explained, “The bottom line is we don’t have a tailback right now who deserves to start, in my opinion.We don’t have a guy that’s proven that he can do all the things we’re going to ask that guy to do. There’s nobody that will stand up and say, ‘This is my job, I’m taking it and I’m keeping it.’ ”

After the speaking engagement, Richt met the clown outside in the parking lot and proceeded to apply a vicious anaconda choke hold on the man. **

The Dogs opens with Boise State in the Georgia Dome. One week laster, the Bulldogs will host South Carolina.

** We are just kidding about the choke hold.
