Boss Bailey calls out his former team ... compassionately

Georgia’s week of bearing down ended with a fiery speech from a former player.

Boss Bailey was the team’s honorary captain on Saturday, and as part of his duties he was allowed to give the team a pregame speech.

The former linebacker did so on Friday at the Butts-Mehre building, and didn’t hold back, according to head coach Mark Richt.

“Boss, he pretty much called them out,” Richt said after Georgia's 41-14 rout of Tennessee. “But he did it in a way that was very compassionate. You could tell it was very obvious that he loved Georgia. It was obvious that he loved those guys. But he felt like he needed to tell them that they weren’t playing ball the way ball should be played here at Georgia.”

Bailey mentioned some things to both the offense and defense, according to Richt.

“There’s been a lot of good honorary captain speeches,” Richt said. “But there was none better than that.”
