In this day and age of bling and pot use, Mark richt and the team he fields year after year follow the lead of a truly classy man. Not only is Coach Richt a strong man of faith and family, he truly cares about his players.
No one would say Georgia is perfect but after the length of his tenure thus far, he has nipped problem players in the bud and the players like Moreno that he chooses are a great example of his brilliance. Moreno came from a family where an education wasn't a blessing, it was expected. His siblings have advanced degrees and his work ethic makes up for his size. He may not be the crushing 240 lb ideal tailback but I have seen him leave many a player looking up as he has run them over.
Georgia should get credit when it's due and this year, they may have lost to 2 teams, 1 which will be the BCS champ but Georgia is not the most experienced team in the country and the schedule was not a free one either. Georgia just looked to their coach and the team he is surrounded with and went to work. Mostly working a full 4 quarters until the whistle blows and has a respectable record to show for it.
Good job Georgia, and although I like my Dawgs, the class of the SEC is showing up in Vandy- high academic standards but a strong team; Kentucky- little behind on recruiting but plays from the heart of another classy coach.
It's good to see the SEC be great without the best teams money can buy and do it with the best teams hard work and ethics can achieve. Although many across the country say many things, no team can honestly say that they want an SEC team on their schedule at years end when they are undefeated because the SEC is special- they can line any team up on any Saturday and beat a team from another conference on any Saturday -each week in the SEC is a bowl week- no other conference plays to this level. Period.
Once again, the Dawgs have my heart but the SEC keeps my attention and although they won't admit it, they keep the attention of every team in the country each week and makes the Texas Techs and the Oklahomas pray they don't have to play a healthy Florida or Alabama for the "BCS Title." They know it won't come easy and in big games, class and hard work will beat a big name any day. Hunker Down Dawgs and go SEC
