Georgia Playing Down the Hype Surrounding Opener With Clemson


SEC Media Days where we get hyped to talk football.
Except Georgia, at least when it comes to their season opener.
Dawgs get Clemson in a mega show down that Georgia prefers to tone down.

Said quarterback J.T. Daniels:”It’s a big match-up. I mean there’s going to be a lot of hype around it. But I think it’s really important for both teams futures to keep perspective that it’s a week one game.”
Said head coach Kirby Smart:”Neither team will be in the playoffs or out of the playoffs based on the outcome of the game. It’s a lot more important what you do and how you manage the success from that game or the failure from that game.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at
