Blog: Richt talks uniforms, not tailbacks

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.

“I don’t want to talk about tailbacks,” Richt said. “I really don’t. Let’s 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.”

Crowell practiced Monday and Tuesday after missing the Georgia Tech game with a sprained left ankle.

Samuel, who hasn’t played the last four games after undergoing ankle surgery Nov. 1, didn’t practice Monday and Tuesday.

Told that not talking tailbacks will get LSU wondering, Richt said “That will be good. It’s our only chance.”

–Now about those uniforms.

There will be no repeat of the Nike Pro Combat uniforms this time around.

“Red tops and silver britches,” Richt said. “No Pro Combats. Nobody even asked me. A couple of them we’re like `Don’t do it coach.’ ”

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.

“I thought that would be a really nice incentive,” Richt said. “As it turned out, it wasn’t much of an incentive.”

Richt said one player asked about donning the black jerseys.

“They think you can snap your finger and get a bunch of brand new jerseys,” Richt said. “That has to be planned out.”
