No. 13 Georgia squeeks by Kentucky 29-24


Georgia Head Coach Mark Richt

Opening statement…
“Very excited about the victory. It’s great to be able to go on the road in the SEC and get the win. I think
Kentucky did a fantastic job tonight. My hat’s off to coach (Joker) Phillips and his team. I’m also pleased
with our team to do what they had to do to win the ballgame. A lot of big plays had to be made. We had
to play good down the stretch in order to win it. Again, very thankful and pleased with the victory. I want
to also, like I said, let coach Phillips know that I thought his team was well prepared and they did a heck
of a job.”

On Kentucky…
“I know coach Phillips is a very good coach. Their staff is very sharp. I think they have played much better
at home than they have away so I knew them being home was going to be a factor. A lot of times when
you do play young guys they tend to play better at home. I expected them to be well prepared and they

On the onside kick…
“It was a great job by (the kicker), if that kick would have rolled just a tad bit faster he probably would
have gotten it, but it was just kind of creeping along. Their kicker of course had to wait for it to go 10 and
Connor (Norman) was heads up to go around there and snatch it and be strong enough to convince the
officials that it was his. It was a huge play. There were a lot of huge plays in the game, a game that close,
but Connor did a great job.”

On the passing game…
“A lot of things have to go well to throw the ball like that. You have to be able to protect, you have to be
able to run good routes, you have to be able to put the ball on the money and catch and you have to
have a good idea of what you’re doing. You’ve got to have a little bit of scheme involved in there. I think
everything came together well, there was a sack or two that we probably could have avoided. There
was a ball that probably would have been a touchdown if we caught it, there was another one that was
overthrown that I think would have been another touchdown so I think there could have been even more
damage done in the passing game.”

On preparation for the game…
“Kentucky had time to get their plan together and they’ve got good personnel. They do a lot of really good
things. I have respect for what they have done in the past and how they played tonight. Like I said, I think
they have played a lot better at home than they have away. We caught them at home and we got a good
SEC victory on the road, I think there is a lot to be said for that.”
