[su_spacer size=”20″] Mark Richt was impressed with his team’s workmanlike victory over Kentucky.
[su_spacer size=”40″] On the win …
“It was a good day, a good solid victory. It was the last home game for the seniors and it meant a lot to them to finish with style. The underclassmen played their tails off for those guys. That was a motivating factor and they did a good job of that. … Overall, the coaches and the players did a wonderful job of focusing on what’s important.”
[su_spacer size=”40″] On the lines of scrimmage …
“I was very pleased with what happened up front. It was a line-of-scrimmage game and we won in the trenches today on both sides of the ball. We had a situation where we had a comfortable lead and we were able to pound the ball and chew up the clock. … Part of it was the defense getting off the field and then the offense moving the ball. We had 71 plays and they had 47 plays and that was important.”
[su_spacer size=”40″] On Dominick Sanders …
“If you watch him in practice, he’s always picking off balls. He’s got great ball skills and instincts to know when and where the quarterback is going to throw it. He’s not afraid to go make a play. He can break on the ball and catch it when he gets there.”
[su_spacer size=”40″] On Auburn …
“Going to Auburn is tough. It’s going to be a big one for both of us.”
[su_spacer size=”40″] On the “wild dog” offense …
“We have skill guys who can handle it. Terry Godwin is a guy that can handle the zone read and Sony Michel can take the ball and run it. That adds
another blocker to the scheme. The defense figures you’re going to run it, but you have numbers better at the line of scrimmage.”
[su_spacer size=”40″] On the quarterback play …
“It was just what we needed. There was no point in slinging it all over the yard today. The safest way was just how we played it. But when we did throw
it, we were fairly effective.”
[su_spacer size=”40″] On Sony Michel …
“It was a great game for him. At the half, we talked about being really close to breaking a big one. When we finally broke through and got a long run,
the yards start coming and you feel better about the run game. When the line of scrimmage controls the game like we did on both sides, everything
looks good.”
[su_spacer size=”40″] On Brice Ramsey punting …
“He’s got a big leg and he’s taken to this. I’m proud of him. Brice got his chance and he’s taking advantage of it.”
