The only issue Richt would address regarding the national polls was the lone first-place vote Georgia got in the coaches' rankings. Notre Dame was a unanimous choice in the AP poll.
"I'm glad you asked me that. I am not the person who voted for us," Richt said. "Somebody thought we were No. 1. I guess that's good. But it's really not all that important."
Remember, there's that game against Georgia Tech.
Richt wants to talk about nothing else.
"Right now, the only thing I'm really concerned about is playing Georgia Tech," he said, fending off one last attempt to get him to talk about that other thing everyone else is talking about. "We're trying to have a good game plan through the week. We're trying to slow down that offense and put some points on the board."
With that, there was nothing else to say.
"Thanks everyone," Richt said.
The phone line went dead.
