Mark Richt's son discusses his now-infamous "Dawg Bite" video.

Back in the spring David Richt, the second-oldest son of Georgia head football coach Mark Richt, unleashed upon an unsuspecting word the video for his would-be Bulldog anthem "Dawg Bite." In case you've forgotten, here's a reminder of it's, uh - greatness.

The younger Richt recently discussed the video and the less-than-enthusiastic reaction to it.

“It was interesting how people reacted,” David said. “Honestly, it was very quickly done and when we did it, it was just a fun thing to do for my dad. That’s what it was. When they said we were going to do a music video, I didn’t know until the day of.”

He was surprised when it was on the video board in Sanford Stadium and with the reaction.

“When USA Today said it was the worst video in the world, I was like, ‘Ugh,’” David said. “At least all I can do is get better. … Just like my dad says, I can’t let that affect me. They just might be having a terrible day and say that. I can’t say it’s the best either.”

Richt currently goes to Bellmont College in Nashville while perusing a career in music. He released a contemporary Christian CD this past winter. His dad will be in Nashville this weekend coaching UGA against Vanderbilt.
