Tuesday Press Conference review: Could the excuse making finally be over and we get Evil Richt back?
Georgiadogs.com has the transcript from Richt's regular Tuesday PC, and it's got some interesting, not liked items.
Foremost, for us Tampa lovers...
"He didn't do well yesterday. He practiced for about five minutes."
Ruh roh. My thoughts on if he's out for the Cocktail Party are in that Tampa lover link.
Could he finally be getting over the weather, travel, etc stupid excuses?
"We're trying to focus real hard on not the fact that it's in Jacksonville, not the fact that it's even Florida. We're looking at the team we're playing as far as their personnel, their scheme."
On the much maligned special teams issues, and if they aren't listening, why?
"[W]e know we have to get better. I think a lot of it has to do with challenging those units to do exactly what the coaches tell them to do. That's been at least 50 percent of the issue."
Are we getting sneaky to adjust to missing Shawn Williams at SS for a half?
"I know how we are going to do it. I'm not going to say how we are going to do it, but that one a little bit more tricky to find the answer for on how to handle that first half."
On how he handles the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Part;, again, hopefully the excuse making is going away, and we're focusing on the game itself and what we can do other than a bunch of outside nonsense.
"I think we are much better off focusing on the things that really truly matter, and that's what is your job, what is your assignments, what are you going to do if this happens, what are you going to do if that happens. ... We practice crowd noise, practice schemes, try to get better fundamentally and get after it."
And from us at S&G, we know most folks hit the road tomorrow or Thursday, so travel safe, enjoy the Party, and let's hope we can do some property destroyin' Saturday night (in a good way, like breaking metal steel chairs with 5 inch cushions).
