Mark Richt brushes off comments from Bacarri Rambo, Sanders Commings

The Georgia coach tried to downplay the tough talk from two of his star defenders in comments to the press on Tuesday.

Both Bacarri Rambo and Sanders Commings made waves this week when they said that Georgia had a more talented defense than Alabama.

On Tuesday, Richt downplayed the comments, saying that it didn't concern him greatly (courtesy of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution):

"You know what? They're all young and excited, and they say what they want to say sometimes," Richt replied. "And I don't think it's going to matter much what everybody says before the game.

"I think it's going to matter what happens when we kick it off. So I'm not too worried about that."

The Bulldogs have one of the best defenses in Mark Richt's time in Athens this season, as they are ranked 16th in the country in total defense, giving up only 17.7 points per game. However, the Crimson Tide are ranked 1st in the country, giving up only 9.3 points per game.

Nevertheless, Rambo and Commings will have a chance to back up what they said this Saturday. If Georgia wins the SEC Championship Game, no one will care who gave up more points in the regular season.
