Mark Richt's favorite song was written by his son.

ESPN gave the coaches of the SEC a questionnaire containing the usual assortment of touchy-feely questions. Included in the batch was one asking what the coaches' favorite song and/or musician. Answers ranged from the totally obvious (Tennessee's Derek Dooley being a fan of the school's number one jock sniffer, Kenny Chesney),  to the somewhat disturbing and hard to comprehend (please tell me Les Miles was kidding about listening to Lil' Wayne). Florida's Will Muschamp gets bonus points in picking Van Morrison's "Crazy Love," the song he and his wife first danced to as husband and wife.

As for Georgia head football coach Mark Richt, he had to go the full sentimental route and picked a song written by his second oldest son, David. The title of the song is "Thinking About You," and not surprisingly, it's a praise and worship song.

Sure Richt went all dad with his answer. But honestly who could blame him?
