Georgia coach Mark Richt shot down whispers of a blackout this week but urged fans on Wednesday morning to wear red to Saturday‚Äôs game.
A tweet from his Twitter account included this: ‚ÄúWe are wearing Red jerseys Saturday. To show the unity of the DawgNation I‚Äôm asking everyone to wear Red!‚Äù
Richt said he couldn‚Äôt remember asking for fans to all wear red before.
‚ÄúI think it‚Äôs a good thing,‚Äù Richt said. ‚ÄúWe are wearing our red, our players are, and our fans traditionally wear red most of the time. I‚Äôd like to have it 100 percent. I think it would be a great sign of unity for our Bulldog Nation and I think if everybody buys in and then everybody gets to the stadium and sees that everybody‚Äôs bought in before we even kick off, I think it just adds a little energy to the day. I‚Äôd really like to see that.‚Äù
