Mark Richt is offended.
How dare a reporter, at the beginning of Georgia's press conference, have the audacity to ask this:
"To get this business out of the way, any suspensions that we need to know about? Are there any injuries?"
Richt actually said he didn't think the question was "professional." Yes, he's become that sensitive.
Cue people rushing to defend Richt against the big bad media and its sinister inquiries.
But can you blame a reporter for asking? Late last week, Richt suspended three running backs, including star freshmen running back Isaiah Crowell, for the game against New Mexico State after failed drug tests.
But Richt, like at least one of his SEC coaching counterparts, isn't going to take any perceived guff from the media even if the question asked is a valid one given the circumstances a week ago.
"To answer your question, I'm not going to answer that question because I don't like it," Richt said. "Anyone ...

ASKING FOR TROUBLE
A reporter asked Georgia coach Mark Richt a question that upset him, and he let that reporter know about it.
Head Coach Mark Richt
We all know Auburn is the defending national champions. They have impressed me quite a bit, especially how they have fought to win a couple of fourth quarter battles, some very close games that they have prevailed in. Even game one, I remember watching a little bit of that on TV as we were getting prepared to play Boise State. It looked like...
Georgia fans, we’re finally here: with just three games left, it’s the week of the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry, as the Bulldogs take on the #24 Auburn Tigers at Sanford Stadium. This game is arguably the biggest game of the season for Georgia, as they can pretty much clinch the SEC East with a win on Saturday (the Dawgs still have to play Kentucky...
Paul Myerberg does a nice job reminding us that there’s more to college football right now than the Penn State scandal. Including, among many other things, this:
In Athens, a coach left for dead is making a run. It was too easy to write Mark Richt and Georgia off after the Bulldogs opened 0-2; it was so easy, in fact, that pundits tripped all over themselves in penning their...
The buffet will try to rise above the muck and mire this morning.
What a difference a year makes – ESPN article about mediocrity at the bottom of the SEC mentions Florida, omits Georgia.
A couple of days pass, and the Ole Miss rumor mill is already delusional.
“No one wanted to be that team at Georgia that ended the Mark Richt era.”
If you’re interested, the “1980 Dawgs”...
ATHENS – Isaiah Crowell is back in the Georgia lineup.
Isaiah Crowell is back in the Georgia lineup.
Isaiah Crowell expresses remorse for the actions that led to his suspension, which is always a good start.
And then he sticks the finish.
“I never liked Auburn. Point blank, I never liked (them),” he said. “I just never liked Auburn, I don’t know why.”
That’s okay, Isaiah. You’re not required to have a reason. All is forgiven.

After an opening game that I’ll charitably call uninspiring and what then appeared to be a critical loss to South Carolina, Georgia now finds itself perhaps somewhat improbably on the brink of pulling off its first trip to the SECCG in six seasons. The crowd should be energized, as pumped as any… well, since the 2007 Blackout Game against Auburn. There’s even a cherry on...
