Richt on “Celebration-Gate”: In hindsight, end zone celebration was wrong

Dawgs Celebrate After First TD Against UF.  The incident has become known as \"celebration-gate.\"

IS THIS STORY NEVER GOING TO GO AWAY? ESPN.COM IS NOW REFERRING TO IT AS “CELEBRATION-GATE”! Any time a story gets the word “gate” added to it, it becomes an everlasting scandal. Don’t get me wrong, I love Mark Richt and support him all the way. But with that said, I don’t know if I agree with him giving in to Urban Meyer by admitting he was wrong an apologizing.


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Georgia coach Mark Richt just finished addressing the media, and among the highlights, he apologized for the way the Bulldogs’ celebration after the first touchdown against Florida last season went down.

He said he was “in shock” when he saw his whole team out there and added, “In hindsight, I shouldn’t have done it and won’t do anything like that again.” Richt said he called Florida coach Urban Meyer that Sunday to apologize.

I’ll have more on celebration-gate later on, so check back. The bottom line is that Richt got results. The Bulldogs’ season changed on that touchdown and ensuing dance party in the Gators’ end zone … even if it was unsportsmanlike.
