I do prefer Richt's position while at UGA. That remains MY position. But Richt doesn't OWE anyone an explanation of a policy you assume he set.
Your Richt fascination a year later is curious. The guy only had the best winning percentage of any coach at UGA, the second most wins and is of such character that your attempt to use him to try to score a cheap shot on some UGA fans is fairly pathetic.
If I were to be upset by someone not following the Richt standard, it would be the coach of the team I support - UGA. But as I have explained many times, while I don't agree with Smart's position on it, it is his position and is consistent with the rest of CFB. So be it. My preference lost at UGA.
I would think you and I would be more concerned about next years UGA team. There is plenty of improvement to be made in Athens without taking shots at an honorable man, based on an assumption.
This thread has nothing to do with UGA fans, Kirby Smart, who you support or really even your position, since you have now made it clear that you have different standards when it comes to graduate transfers, depending on who the coach is, so how could anyone know?...........It's about the change that Mark Richt either agrees with now or adheres to now at Miami whether it's his decision or not on graduate transfers. It's not a slight or cheap shot.......only a question for someone who is paid 4 million a year, in my opinion, should answer.
That is the topic, and to be "not that concerned with what he does there", you sure do feel the need to respond in your attempts to flame this thread.
This topic was placed in the non-SEC forum for a reason......it is not applicable to what you are trying to paint it to be......your typical cheap shot when you see a post or poster that you are too thinned skinned apparently to reasonably and calmly discuss opinions and facts on a topic such as this. I don't care what your latest opinion is, but you seem to be adamant to deluge this thread with it.
For the second and final time, I am requesting that you leave this thread and stop attempting to blow it up for your self serving and bitter personal reasons.....
Right...This thread has nothing to do with UGA fans...
We had a lot of fans, and some here on this board, who praised Richt for his no restriction transfer policy, which he had in place while at UGA.You made it about, saying I have a double standard. Which is false. I don;t have different standards. Again - and I'll try a little slower this time...I ...prefer...Richt's...policy... of...letting...a ...player...transfer...wherever...said ...player ...want...to...go.who you support or really even your position, since you have now made it clear that you have different standards when it comes to graduate transfers, depending on who the coach is, so how could anyone know?
The rest of your blather is not worth responding to.
Again, Richt doesn't owe anyone an explanation. You seem to be the lone poster here that believes that to be the case.
You have made the double standard clearly apparent....it's OK for you to excuse Richt or anyone else you hold dear, but your post on graduate transfers from another thread clearly confirmed your double standard by demanding it of other coaches. That you try to spin it as something else......is.....again.....your.....fail.
Every response you have made in this thread has been an attempt to derail it. The subject matter is in the proper forum and the question was posed very respectfully.....however you have yet to relent and respond respectfully or stay on topic, venturing into personal slights without provocation. You entered with an intention to start a pissfest and continue to attempt to draw an infractionable response from me.
Again, I respectfully ask you, though you do not deserve it.......to leave this thread and not return with your premeditated flaming intentions that began with your very first post and continued with all the others.
Mark Richt is under fire after he contradicts himself amidst graduate transfer decision
January 24, 2017 3:33 pm
Miami running back Gus Edwards is leaving the program as a graduate transfer, but Mark Richt is blocking Edwards from playing for any school on the Hurricanes’ schedule next season.
Edwards, who is from Staten Island, wants to transfer closer to home after the birth of his son. Pittsburgh and Syracuse are on Miami’s schedule next season, so Edwards can’t transfer to either. Edwards was committed to Syracuse before flipping to Miami out of high school.
Last August, Richt said he doesn’t believe in transfer restrictions because “life is too short.”
“I have unconditionally released every guy that ever wanted to leave,” Richt said in August. “I’d call the commissioner [of the conference] and say, ‘Hey, if the kid wants to go…let him go wherever he wants to go.'”
Last year, defensive back Maurice Smith wanted to transfer from Alabama to Georgia, but Nick Saban blocked the transfer for a long time. He eventually relented, and Smith went on to help Georgia defeat Auburn in November—which secured the SEC West for Alabama.
It’s easy to see where Richt is coming from since he doesn’t want to coach against Edwards next season, but it’s hypocritical given his statements less than a year ago about transfers.
Reports: Hurricanes reach out to Clemson graduate transfer running back Tyshon Dye
by Matt Porter

In their search for running back depth, the Hurricanes could get an assist from the defending national champions.
Multiple reports said Clemson transfer Tyshon Dye is on UM’s radar as a possible backup to leading rusher Mark Walton.
According to Canesport, Miami offensive coordinator and running backs coach Thomas Brown contacted Dye and told him he has a spot with the Hurricanes if he wants it. Dye told Canesport he planned to speak with Mark Richt on Sunday.
Dye, 23, is a native of Elberton, Ga. He is 5-foot-11 and 220 pounds and immediately eligible to play as a graduate transfer.
He was a four-star recruit in the 2013 class, rated 14th among running backs and 165th overall by the 247Sports composite ratings. However, injuries hampered his career at Clemson.
In 2015, he rushed for 91 yards — 52 of which came in a blowout win at Miami — and two touchdowns. He had 109 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries last year. He did not play in the ACC championship or the playoffs.
His career numbers for Clemson — which touted him as “one of the team’s most physical running backs” on its website — were 351 yards and five touchdowns on 76 carries. He also caught two passes for 11 yards.
Dye told Canesport that 10 schools offered him a spot. He told 247Sports that Georgia Southern is contacting him the most. Another contender is SMU, whose coach, Chad Morris, was Clemson’s former offensive coordinator.
