Richt recruited the majority of the players currently on Georgia’s roster, and by all accounts, Richt had as healthy a relationship with Georgia’s players than any coach could hope to have.
The season will start in a couple of weeks. I'm excited about our team. But I would also like to wish the Dawgs the very best! U Family!— Mark Richt (@MarkRicht) August 20, 2017
UGA and Richt's Hurricanes do not play one another this season but Richt did say in December 2015 that he believes the two programs are on a collision course for a national championship.
