SEC media day quotes: Mark Richt

Mark Richt, the SEC's longest tenured coach, wrapped up SEC media day. Here's a few notes:

-On having 7 home games this season: "I love having 7 home games, I'd love to have 12 home games if we could."

-On the playoff system: "I think the 4-team playoff is going to be outstanding... It doesn't destroy the bowl system.

-On their teaching philosophy: "We teach em how to be better men at Georgia."

-On discipline: "People are human. People make mistakes. When they do, you discipline them...Some people have policies that bring things to light and some people don't"

-On if a conference commissioner should have the power to fire a coach: "Bottom line, we are in a business. I don't necessarily see a problem with that."
