Richt said he hadn't heard of the players' home being hit with eggs and littered with toilet paper until he was asked about the incident on his weekly teleconference Sunday afternoon.
"Sometimes that comes with the territory," he said. "You're a public figure and people get upset about things. It's sad something like that would happen but it's not shocking people get criticism or something like that happened to them when they're in the type position those guys are in, especially the quarterback position."
Richt said every quarterback he has coached since he was an assistant coach at Florida State has had to have unlisted telephone numbers "because you know there's going to be somebody to call and say something foolish after the emotion of a game. Unfortunately, it's part of it."
A win would have left Georgia in a strong position in the SEC's Eastern Division. Now Georgia needs help to earn a second straight trip to the SEC championship game in Atlanta.
Six hours after tweeting about the ugly scene at his home, Robinson followed with another post that seemed to follow Richt's advice.
"Still get to be a hero this morning to little kids at Athens Church," Robinson tweeted. "There are more important things in life than wins and losses."
Georgia was averaging 48 points before being shut down by the Gamecocks.
"The main thing is to get back to work, continue to believe in each other and come back with a strong performance," Richt said. "That's really the best medicine we have right now."
