Former UGA coach Mark Richt is a brave man.
One day after posting twitter photos of himself in Georgia Tech gear, which naturally generated a perturbed reaction among some Bulldogs fans, Richt fired off more pot-stirring tweets on Tuesday.
Richt posted pictures of himself not only wearing Georgia Tech colors, but he also permitted Geoff Collins capture a moment of the two breaking bread together at the sacred Waffle House. Collins is the current coach of the Yellow Jackets
As you can imagine, Richt’s social media behavior did not go over well with some members of his fanbase (see tweets at the bottom of this story):
Is the cold war over? Of course, Georgia Tech is UGA’s hated rival, at least until the series became less competitive in recent years due to the dominance of the Bulldogs.

Due to that longtime resentment between the two schools, some UGA fans have expressed surprise and anger about Richt’s tweets, which were clearly a joke by the former boss of the Bulldogs.
Richt, who was UGA’s coach for 15 seasons and retired from Miami after the 2018 season, seems to be enjoying life these days. He’s rich, retired and seems to be improving in health after suffering a heart attack last October.
Richt, 60, is a college football analyst for the ACC Network, which led to his meetings – and tweets – with Georgia Tech. He’s going to try to visit most ACC schools before the start of the season.
DawgNation’s Brandon Adams had a insightful take on Richt’s tweets on Tuesday’s edition of DawgNation Daily.
