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."
