Georgia Vs. Missouri: Tigers DT Sheldon Richardson Banned From Media Day

Missouri kept talkative DT Sheldon Richardson away from the media Monday after his controversial remarks Saturday, the Associated Press reports.

Why, you ask?

Richardson, a junior, said after Saturday's opening victory over Southeastern Louisiana that he watched some of the Bulldogs' opening victory over Buffalo earlier in the day but turned off his TV because "it's like watching Big Ten football, it's old man football."

MU coach Gary Pinkel said Richardson regretted the remarks and said the team had handled the matter already.

Could Richardson's inflammatory comments rile up a Georgia team already on guard about their trip to Columbia?

"Without question I think anybody looks for things," Pinkel said. "We want to say the appropriate things. He felt sorry for saying it, he just got excited.

"He's got great respect for Georgia, as I do. We'll learn the lessons and move on."
