Mark Richt had some Hall of Fame quotes in his final days with UGA’s football team.
Richt, who was fired by the Bulldogs but hired less than a week later at Miami, showed up for UGA’s awards banquet on Saturday night, per DawgNation’s Seth Emerson. After getting a standing ovation from the crowd, Richt wiped tears from his eyes and said this:
“I’m 100 percent convinced that the University of Georgia and the University of Miami are on a collision course for a national championship.”
The pro-UGA crowd showered Richt with applause again.
Last week in his final UGA team meeting before accepting the Miami job, Richt left the players with these famous last words: “Life is about people, not rings. Rings collect dust.”
MARK RICHT: "I'm convinced that the University of Georgia and Miami are on a collision course to play for a Nat'l Championship."
