Mark Richt Sunday teleconference quotes 

November, 20, 2011
Here is almost all of what Mark Richt had to say on his Sunday evening teleconference:

On Carlton Thomas, running back situation and offensive line:
Carlton, don’t know on that yet, but I’ll let y’all know when I do know. As far as offensive line play, I don’t know if we played a whole lot different than we did in the Auburn game, we just had some inexperienced guys in there running the ball and they hit us sometimes well, didn’t hit it quite so well others, but I’m very thankful they were there to carry the mail. Harton proved to be a real tough, resilient guy that helped us win that football game and we appreciate everything he did. Of course Ken Malcome got an opportunity to help us also, and I’m sure they’ll grow from that experience, but it just takes a lot of work and reps to get everybody all together and those guys weren’t getting an awful lot of reps throughout the week and all of a sudden they were it. That’s just the way it went between Carlton’s situation and Isaiah getting nicked up real early in the game, all of a sudden those guys were No. 1 and No. 2 when going into the game they were going to be No. 3 and No. 4. That’s how the reps were dispersed throughout the week of practice.
