TERRIBLE TOWEL TWO?: Taking inspiration from the famous Terrible Towels waved by Pittsburgh Steelers fans, Richt is hoping to start a similar tradition at Georgia.
The Athletic Association will hand out free “I’m Georgia” towels at Picture Day on Saturday and then put the towels up for sale after that. Richt hopes fans will wave the towels at crucial points of games.
“We want a lot of noise to go along with it,” he said.
Proceeds from the sale of the towels will go to Camp Sunshine, a Northeast Georgia based camp for children with cancer.
