"As of late our guys have been a little more jacked up to play and they've had a little harder time keeping some of those things from happening," Richt said. "We want to play hard, but we still have to play with a certain amount of discipline, or we'll give the darn thing away."
"We just have to keep finding a way to keep play lights out and extremely hard and fast and emotional without letting the emotion get in the way of good judgment," Richt said.
Georgia committed its fewest penalties under Richt last year, when it averaged 5.9 for 53.6 yards per game. The most-penalized year of his tenure was 2003, when Georgia drew 8.5 flags worth 73.7 yards per game.
