Mark Richt not talking BCS, focused on Georgia Tech

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia head coach Mark Richt refused to talk about the Dawgs' BCS title chances on Sunday, choosing instead to focus on their upcoming game against Georgia Tech.

The Georgia Bulldogs, by virtue of losses by Oregon and Kansas State, are in position to make a run to the BCS Championship Game. However, head coach Mark Richt wasn't discussing that potential scenario during his Sunday teleconference, and was choosing to focus solely on the Dawgs' upcoming opponent, the rival Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

When asked whether the scenario gives their game against Georgia Tech any additional meaning, Richt was quick to dismiss outside factors:

"Well you know what," Richt said, "Georgia Tech is scoring an awful lot of points lately, and is playing extremely well as a team. We know what this game means to our program on a year-to-year basis. And we're very excited about playing it."

Numerous attempts were made by reporters to get Richt to talk about the BCS, but he did not give in.

The Dawgs have won 10 of the last 11 against the Yellow Jackets, but almost all of those games have been fairly close. Georgia Tech have won four of their past five games, and have scored over 39 points a game during that stretch. The Bulldogs opened up as a 14 point favorite over the Yellow Jackets
