Mark Richt holds a special place in Bulldogs fans’ hearts. (Especially in weeks like this, when his 4-0 Miami Hurricanes face Georgia Tech.) Based on comments Richt made Wednesday, the feeling is mutual.

When asked about Georgia’s sudden rise to the top of the college football world in Year 2 under Kirby Smart, Richt had only good things to say about the school where he served as a coach for more than a decade.

“It’s exciting to see that,” Richt said on the ACC teleconference. “I’m happy for Georgia. I’m happy for all the kids I recruited and I’m happy for all the guys I didn’t recruit. Georgia is a great place. It has a special place in the hearts of myself and my wife, and I’m all for them having a lot of success.”

Richt went on to say that while he hasn’t been able to watch any Georgia games this season — he’s too busy coaching his Canes to an undefeated record in his second year of a new gig — he has been impressed by the scores and highlights he’s seen of the Bulldogs.

“When you see the scores and the point differential and what looks like really lights-out defensive play,” Richt said, “that’s what champions are built of.”
