Georgia Football: Richt Says No Blackout, Gurley May Not Start, Player Interviews – Daily Dose of Dawg
Richt Shoots Down Blackout Idea
In classic Richt fashion, the head coach of the Bulldogs shot down the idea of wearing black jerseys for the Auburn game last night on the media teleconfernce. Personally, I don’t care that much, but my question to Richt would be, why not? The superstitious excuse is just stupid. It’s something the players,fans, and alumni really want, so why not just hop on board? The biggest reason I’d like to see the Dawgs wear black on Saturday, or at least for the fans to, is that UGA is hosting the most big-time recruits in the history of this program. What better environment could you possibly show them than a blacked out Sanford Stadium? After a bombardment of twitter mentions, e-mails, and comments on the fan call in show, I hope Richt will at least entertain the idea.
Oh, and to all the people who are going to say, “Richt has more important things to worry about than what color jersey the team is going to wear,” I say this: Is it really that hard to send out a simple tweet urging fans to wear black and asking your equipment manager to order black jerseys?

Gurley May Not Start
Yesterday, on Richt’s media teleconference, he was asked if Nick Chubb would be starting against Auburn? His response: “We haven’t even talked about that yet. Obviously, both those guys will play and we’ll see how Sony is doing.”
Now I won’t pretend to know what goes on in Mark Richt’s head, so I’m not going to predict who will start, but I really think it should be Chubb. It’s not as if Gurley has been waiting to come back from an injury. No, it was a self-inflicted, selfish act, and in the meantime, Chubb has earned the right to start this game. Obviously Todd is still the better running back, and I think 1000% that he should go back to being “the man” of this offense, but #27 has done everything asked of him this entire season, and I think giving him the first few carries this Saturday is the right thing to do.
