A couple of things jumped out to me while listening to some sound from Coach Richt on this weeks game with Boise State, but nothing more than the respect...as a coach and a football guy...that he has for Chris Petersen and his Broncos. This is a respect that is hard earned, well deserved and that everyone in the DAWG Nation should share for our opponent this Saturday.
Coach Richt on Boise State and the DAWGS:
“It’s important to play well. It’s important to get after it. It’s important to prove, even to ourselves, that we still know how to play football the way it should be played. Boise State is a great opponent to try to prove that (against) because I think they play the game the way it should be played. They coach it and they play it the way it should be played.”
Viewing the game from the defensive huddle as I do, these little tidbits shared by Coach Richt certainly got my attention:
Coach Richt mentioned the sparkling notes that Boise State led the nation in sacks, led the nation in tackles for loss and finished second in the country in total defense.
“Now we’ve just got to go do it, go play it, go fight the battle and just see what we’re all about.”
