I am still to sick to even read any of the papers, webs or blogs. So I do not know if Richt has commented on this or not, but I am going to.

I do not care where the ball is kicked. There are eleven guys on that squad. One guy kicks it, THE OTHER TEN GO AND MAKE THE DAD GUM TACKLE!

The celebration penalty is beneath BUI's time. It is what it is.

Regardless, every kick will not be a touch back, at some point, the other ten guys on that squad have to play football and make a tackle.

There was a lot of good in yesterday's game, and a lot of bad.  One thing has been constant this year: POOR SPECIAL TEAMS TACKLING.  Quit blaming the kicker and TAKE RESPONSIBILITY! 
If those ten can't tackle, find ten that can!

Where can I comment?
