It was the most exciting college football game of the year and Alabama-Georgia in the SEC Championship certainly lived up to expectations.The Championship game came down to the wire, and with Georgia needing a touchdown to win, they came up just short four yards short. Electing not to spike the ball with 15 seconds remaining, Richt drew up a fade for Aaron Murray to throw. The ball was tipped at the line and caught inbounds by Chris Conley as time expired.Richt and quarterback Aaron Murray have been criticized for not winning the big game, and following the game, when asked by a reporter about coming up short, Richt went off.Here’s a transcript of the exchange between Richt and the reporter via Outkick the coverage:Questioner: “There are some people whether it’s fans, media, or whomever else that will maybe want to make further conclusions about you or your quarterback, specifically, in big games. Would you have any response to those people.”Richt: “I don’t know what you’re saying. Why don’t you just say it straight up what you’re trying to say?”Questioner: “People will say that you and Aaron Murray specifically come up short on the biggest stage against the biggest opponents.”Richt: “Is that what you’re saying or everybody else — if that’s what you’re saying — are you saying that?Questioner: “No, I’m saying I hear that every day —”Richt then cut off the person asking the questions to offer his response.“Well, that’s for you to worry about then. If that’s what you say, then I’ll answer the question. If you think other people are saying that, I’m not worried about that.”Video via The Big Lead
