Mark Richt hasn't watched replays of Georgia's loss to Alabama in 2012 SEC title game.

Georgia head football coach Mark Richt admitted on Tuesday that he hasn't quite gotten over the Dawgs' loss to Alabama in the SEC title game yet. Richt's confession came while he was attending the SEC's spring meetings in Destin, Florida.

Richt has been so traumatized by the event that he outside of watching coaches' film after the game, he hasn't watched a repeat of the game since then.

The game was six months ago.

 "A lot of times you need the time to process, and then go back and watch it again, and maybe, you might have a different feeling about something," Richt said. "But right now, I feel like our coaches prepared well, I feel like our game plan was good, I feel like we executed well, I feel like our players played their tails off. Both teams, I feel like both teams played beautifully, and it was just one epic battle that we came up on the short end of."

Richt's hesitation to watch the Dawgs' loss to Alabama should come as no shock. Huge losses are traumatic events in the Bulldog Nation. Many Dawg fans are still shellshocked over UGA's 2008 loss to Alabama. (The team hasn't worn black jersey's since then.) Richt may need to talk with Dr. Phil, Dr. Drew, or somebody over this.
