UPDATE: Per Mark Richt on his Twitter account, the report by Deadspin is fake.

Mark Richt, always a gentleman, can every so often get in some good, old-fashioned trash talking.

Courtesy of Deadspin, apparently a Clemson fan named Travis sent a letter to Mark Richt during the offseason. The letter was reportedly standard trash-talk, which badmouthed running back Todd Gurley and went on to say Clemson’s speed would “blow those hedges away.”

As you know, Georgia blew Clemson away 45-21 behind All-SEC running back Todd Gurley’s career 293-yard all-purpose day. Gurley scored on a 100-yard kickoff return and on runs of 23, 18, and 51-yards.

Sometime this week, Richt mailed the following letter to Travis:

Mark Richt also sent Travis a cutout of the score from the newspaper:
