“I think the part of hurrying-up, I don’t worry about that as a health issue. First of all, we all play on national TV. Our TV timeouts are — I don’t know how many minutes — three or four minutes. Seems that there’s plenty of time to rest between series.
I think the one thing we need to be careful of when we are going fast — and I’m talking offenses in general — and the officials are trying to spot the ball, I think that official spotting the ball needs to get out of the way far enough so when the ball’s snapped he’s in position. For his safety and for anyone else’s safety who might run into him.”
Richt also said that officials should allow defensive teams to get their substitutes onto the field and give them a “reasonable amount of time” to get set up.
Georgia uses a hurry-up attack on occasion.
