MACON, Ga. -- Mark Richt remembers well -- as well as he can, given the circumstances -- the time Notre Dame safety Joey Browner knocked him cold as a true freshman Miami quarterback in 1978.

“He came on a safety blitz and I didn’t really know what I was supposed to do and I just kind of dropped back and got drilled,” Richt recalled of the play that came in the Hurricanes’ 20-0 loss in South Bend. “I saw stars and I was out.”

To this day, Richt does not know if he suffered a concussion on the play since head trauma was not treated as seriously 30 years ago as it is today.
