Let me be the first to congratulate Mark Richt, and not because he just figured out the quickest way to settle a potential quarterback controversy (kick one guy off the team.)
When Richt first arrived in Athens, he was soft on crime. I guess that’s not surprising since he came out of the Bobby Bowden/Let’s Just Make Them Run Steps On Tuesday And Hope This Blows Over School of Discipline. It certainly didn’t make Richt an evil person. But it just took a while before he seemed to realize that punishment in Athens sometimes required more than a slap on the wrist.
