It appears that Georgia coach Mark Richt was inspired by Michael Phelps performance at the pool and thought, "Anything Mike can do I can do better!" With that thought in mind he took Tuesday's practice to the UGA aquatic center where players were challenged to take the plung from 33 ft in the air.
At the end, the feeling of patritism over took Richt as he stood at attention on the top of the platform, saluted the crowd and said, "Thank you lifeguards, and (jumping from platform) G-O-D B-L-E-S-S A-M-E-R-I-C-A!" (SPLASH!)
Will see if trying to be like the best in the world will translate into being the best in the country. At least they didn't jump "over the wall."
