Richt Got Testy With Reporter During Presser

Georgia coach Mark Richt got testy with a reporter following his team’s 32-28 loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday in Atlanta. A media member tried questioning Richt about his and junior quarterback Aaron Murray’s tendency to lose big games when the coach snapped back...



quote:

"Questioner: “There are some people whether it’s fans, media, or whomever else that will maybe want to make further conclusions about you or your quarterback, specifically, in big games. Would you have any response to those people.”

Richt: “I don’t know what you’re saying. Why don’t you just say it straight up what you’re trying to say?”

Questioner: “People will say that you and Aaron Murray specifically come up short on the biggest stage against the biggest opponents.”

Richt: “Is that what you’re saying or everybody else — if that’s what you’re saying — are you saying that?

Questioner: “No, I’m saying I hear that every day —”

Richt then cut off the person asking the questions to offer his response.

“Well, that’s for you to worry about then. If that’s what you say, then I’ll answer the question. If you think other people are saying that, I’m not worried about that.”

Clay Travis also reports that Richt went behind the curtain, slammed down a can of soda, then returned to his press conference."

His response should of been, "I don't know what you've been hearing, but I can tell you I've been hearing people say you are a complete hack as a reporter. Now I'm not saying this, it's just something I've been hearing."

He had much more composure than I would've had yesterday when the chick asked him a couple of times, "what they're gonna do different in the 2nd half from what they did in last years LSU game"?

He didnt get testy. He was very calm in answering the question. The reporter was the coward.

I don't blame him. Critics are a dime a dozen. I know. I'm one. And I'm not always proud of it.

To save everyone 9 minutes, the question happens in the last two minutes of the video linked.
