CUTigers.com caught up with Barry Richardson to get his thoughts on a number of topics, including…
Richardson in Starting Lineup
Since freshman eligibility returned to college football for the 1972 season, only three first-year freshmen offensive linemen have started a game for the Tigers. In addition to Long, James Farr started at center against Rice in the opening game of 1980 and Joe Bostic started two games at offensive tackle in 1975 (Maryland and South Carolina). Thus, Richardson will be just the fourth to start since 1972.
Richardson's ascension to the starting lineup is not that big a surprise because he has played 74 snaps over the last two games, 38 at Texas A&M and 36 at Florida State. He played the entire second half in Tallahassee and received high grades for his performance from line coach Brad Scott. Richardson did not allow a sack against the Seminoles and had an 81 percent technique grade.
Richardson has played 93 snaps for the season.
