Coach Richt and players’ press conference transcript

Check out the transcript of the press conference held earlier today, which includes a ton of quotes from Coach Richt as well as a few from Tavarres King, Aaron Murray, Abry Jones and Sanders Commings. Here’s one from Coach Richt that caught my eye:

On what other opposing coaches have said about Boise State…

“I’d say opposing coaches say ‘get ready.’ They say ‘these guys know how to play the game of football.’ They’re going to get after you. You better be prepared. They are relentless in their play. They are well coached. They believe. Lately, they’ve started fast and furious on both sides of the ball.”

You know, that’s what folks used to say about them Dawgs.

And then there’s this:

On if there are any players other than Carlton Thomas who would not play vs. Boise State for reason other than injuries…

“Nothing to report on that. Nothing to report at this point anyway.”

Look, he’s totally messing with us. He knows we’re all wondering. Why announce one suspended player and then be coy about the possibility of another? Why? I ain’t never “been in the arena” so maybe this is that sort of deal: something I wouldn’t understand or be able to handle. Typing that out, I feel like Jack Nicholson just yelled at me or something.

Moving onward, it seems that Aaron Murray has started talking like a pirate:

“The coaches don’t always love it when I run, but sometimes they do. If no one is open and your options are to get four or five yards or to throw the ball out of bounds, you might as well get something positive out of the play. The fans love it, besides me parents probably.”

I just hope Aaron spent a bit of time this off season learning the finer points of sliding down with the ball from his brother Josh, who was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers back in the day and also walked-on as a safety to join his younger brother at UGA. Nothing against Hutson Mason or possibly Christian LeMay, but one thing for sure I know I wouldn’t be able to handle is seeing Aaron Murray injured and knocked out of a game.
