News and Notes from the Big Easy

Georgia Head Coach Mark Richt spoke with the Media on Monday about the Sugar Bowl.

About visiting with Florida State Head Coach Bobby Bowden.

There are so many people around, it's just hard to sit and talk. I thought that we (he and Bowden) would interact more.

About playing Florida State –

People would ask ‘do you want to play Florida State?' I felt like if we played FSU it would be in a BCS bowl game and here we are. I felt like it would be a good thing if we were playing Florida State because that would mean that something good happened to Georgia.

Is the trip to the Big Easy a business trip?

We tell the players that from when they wake up until practice is over its about business and after that you can enjoy yourself responsibly and I think that we have done a pretty good job of that.

About Damien Gary's status for the game –

I don't know if we are going to get a lot out of Damien in the passing game. I really don't know. I don't see him being quite as on with his game. I think that he is a little bit less of what he was. But with a little bit of adrenaline and one big play and he could take off. I am not counting him out by any means.
