Mark Richt Quotes

 “Like I told the players, it doesn’t mean anything if we get whipped this week. We have a pretty levelheaded group of seniors who know the jury is still out on us. We know we’re good. We know we have a chance to do some special things. But how good can we be? No one knows for sure. We’ve still got a long way to go.”

“I’ve had a lot of great ones, but I’ve never had a guy that tall, that fast and that strong. He’s gaining confidence, too. I don’t think we’ve seen him play as well as he can play. I don’t want to put any extra pressure on him, but he’s a special player.”

“It’s come a little faster this year than normal. We just recruit real hard and if they’re ready to commit, we’ll take their commitment. We’re real pleased to do that with the guys we’ve offered.”

“It was just a great field position game, a great defensive battle. We had to stay patient, as much as we hated it, and let our special teams do their job — then knock it in when we needed to.”

“The main thing I want to emphasize the most about Arkansas is their speed. They are fast. They’ve got to be the fastest team from top to bottom that we’ll face. I don’t think they have anybody who can’t run. It’s a little intimidating to watch them on film and see them run the way they do.”

“I see our basketball team beginning to get these great commitments and beginning to build for the future, and I see the same thing from Coach Croom’s team. I don’t see either of those men looking for shortcuts.”
