Georgia coach Mark Richt was happy to talk about several subjects after practice tonight.
The tailback position wasn’t one of them.
When he was asked about the tailbacks, particularly Isaiah Crowell and Richard Samuel, Richt opted out.
‚ÄúI don‚Äôt want to talk about tailbacks,‚Äù Richt said. ‚ÄúI really don‚Äôt. Let‚Äôs just talk about something else. I was really in a good mood and then you had to ask about that thing. No more tailback questions until after the game.‚Äù
Crowell practiced Monday and Tuesday after missing the Georgia Tech game with a sprained left ankle.
Samuel, who hasn‚Äôt played the last four games after undergoing ankle surgery Nov. 1, didn‚Äôt practice Monday and Tuesday.
Told that not talking tailbacks will get LSU wondering, Richt said ‚ÄúThat will be good. It‚Äôs our only chance.‚Äù
–Now about those uniforms.
There will be no repeat of the Nike Pro Combat uniforms this time around.
‚ÄúRed tops and silver britches,‚Äù Richt said. ‚ÄúNo Pro Combats. Nobody even asked me. A couple of them we‚Äôre like `Don‚Äôt do it coach.‚Äô ‚Äù
Richt promised the players before the 35-21 loss to Boise State to open the season that if they made it back to the Georgia Dome for the SEC championship, he would let them wear it again.
‚ÄúI thought that would be a really nice incentive,‚Äù Richt said. ‚ÄúAs it turned out, it wasn‚Äôt much of an incentive.‚Äù
Richt said one player asked about donning the black jerseys.
‚ÄúThey think you can snap your finger and get a bunch of brand new jerseys,‚Äù Richt said. ‚ÄúThat has to be planned out.‚Äù
