Don't be like the ESPN guys and make a big deal of this. It's about football. I'm proud of Sam for his courage. But more than anything, glad to see a really good player get a chance to make a living doing something he's good at."It's interesting that you have that being that big of a deal. But it is a big deal," Richt said of Sam. "Anybody who has the courage to tell the truth about themselves that may be controversial, I give them credit. It shouldn't be that big of a deal, but it is. And because it was, it took courage."Alabama head coach Nick Saban was asked Tuesday about whether he'd recruit a gay player, and said he wouldn't have a problem with it. Richt was asked if he felt the same way."I mean, if the guy can play," Richt said, chuckling, "then yeah we'll recruit him."
Back to Athens, I don't care what a guy prefers to do in his own bedroom. Like Richt said, if he can play, and he wants to wear red and black, give him a working fax number!
