Capital One Bowl: Behind the Scenes – Coaches’ Final Press Conference


Just before the Capital One Bowl Kickoff Luncheon today, the head coaches of Georgia and Nebraska held a press conference.  Here are some photos with quotes and audio to follow later this afternoon.

Before things begin…

A group of 50-60 people hang around and wait for the coaches to take the stage.  Mark Richt was up first and the pressure was more than this distressed gentleman could handle…

Georgia Athletic Director Greg McGarity was there enjoying a Diet Coke while DudeYouCrazy got everything settled.

I number of other gentlemen were there trying to intimidate me with the size of their cameras.  I wasn’t intimidated.

It Begins…

Mark Richt was the first coach to speak.  He wore a suite and fielded questions for about 20 minutes.

When he was done Bo Pellini came out and the few met for about 90 seconds to tell secrets.

After the Richt-ing…

Mark Richt then left the stage.  As he did so, he walked hard.

After he was done, Bo Pellini fielded questions for no more than three minutes (not his fault – nobody asked him anything) before I got a chance to take a photo of the trophy.
