Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Richt offers an unnecessary apology

Sunday August 26, 2007

Mark Richt, in a moment of frustration, had some strong words about an indoor practice facility on Friday evening.  He cleared the air on Saturday and apologized for the tone of his remarks:

When I actually read my comments late in the day on Saturday I was very disappointed in what I said and the way I said it. It appeared to be someone who was ungrateful for what he had and that is certainly not the case. For that, I want to apologize to President (Michael) Adams, (athletic director) Damon Evans, and the Bulldog Nation.

Of course anyone with some perspective and understanding about the issue knows that Richt has been working with Damon Evans and University administration on this issue for some time.  Granting him frustration over lost practice time, we recognize that he has been pragmatic and has prioritized such a facility correctly among the projects currently on the table.  I’m glad he is passionate about the facility – he will likely need that drive when it comes time to beat the bushes during fundraising for the building which might one day bear his name.
