You think Georgia coach Mark Richt is the only one who can motivate his team? Not even close. Today, Alabama coach Nick Saban responded by, you guessed it, blacking out today's news conference. There he was, at the podium, sporting a black Alabama polo shirt.
What? I couldn't find a black Alabama shirt... I had to ask him. Motivation, right?
"Well, this is the only shirt I could find when I woke up this morning," Saban said, laughing, before growing serious. "Those kinds of things only means something if you let it. Like those old Notre Dame teams that wore green jerseys and that means you're not supposed to beat them. Or Joe Theismann talks to them Friday night, you're not supposed to win that game. If all that does mean something to you, I guess it's a problem. But they have good football players, that's what we're concerned about, not how they dress."
Not much straight news from this morning -- no injuries or anything else. But there were a lot of reflections on how good Georgia is, particularly the problems they present on offense.
