Mark Richt: "I went from gross to kind of fat"

Head coach Mark Richt is making the rounds in the 2014 UGA Day speaking tour. Last night he spoke at the Gainesville Civic Center in Gainesville, Georgia.

Sporting a slightly slimmer figure, Richt hit the crowd with a joke.

“I’ve lost 20 pounds — I went from gross to kind of fat,” Richt chuckled.

Richt went on to give the crowd an update on the team, but stopped short of making any sort of big proclamation for the upcoming season.

“I think if the guys make a lot of progress, get healthy and bond together — if they’re willing to sacrifice for the greater good — I think we’ve got a chance to be really good,” Richt said. “But there’s a lot of teams out there with a chance to be really good.”

Richt later provided some good tidbits on Todd Gurley, the offensive line, coach Mike Ekeler (nicknamed coach Red Bull), and Hutson Mason.

The UGA Day tour continues in Dalton, Georgia tomorrow night.
