“I did a bad job of deciding what to do,” Richt said. “It was strictly on me. If I was going to call a timeout, I should have called it sooner. As I’m processing the decision, the clock’s ticking. That was a poor job by me. I should have either let the clock run down and gone into the house or called the timeout sooner, which I did not.”
