"To me, it's just a man that has confidence in his team," defensive tackle Abry Jones said. "What's he going to say? He knows what we're going up there to do. It's not like he ain't saying nothing that's not true."
"It's extreme motivation to hear people say coach Richt might be on the hot seat," Jones said. "For us as players, to have put him in that kind of position, we're extremely motivated to help him out and show what a great coach he actually is and show what great players we are."
