Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is no stranger to post-game controversy. In 2010, Grantham was caught on camera making a choking motion with his hands and screaming “You’re gonna ******* choke!” to Florida kicker Chas Henry as he was about to attempt a game-winning field goal. Last year, Grantham and Vanderbilt coach James Franklin exchanged words in a post-game confrontation following a 33-28 win by the Bulldogs.
The incident has not been lost on anyone covering the game. On the contrary, it’s been quite the topic of conversation among beat guys (and gals) heading into this Saturday. But Grantham isn’t playing along, adding that it’s not about him vs. Franklin.
“We’re all competitive people, and things happen, and you learn from it and you move on,” Grantham said about the post-game incident. “You know, make sure you keep the focus on the game, and get ready to play a game on Saturday.”
While Grantham is choosing to keep his head down, Franklin took a more sarcastic approach to handling questions about his opposition.
“Yeah, actually our families went on vacation,” Franklin joked earlier this week. “Disneyworld. We were floating in the pool together drinking Mai Tais.”
