2. A few notes from the scrimmage:

Coach Mark Richt set the score at 31-0 to start the game, forcing Georgia to make a comeback.

"Usually when you do these scrimmages, Georgia should do well against the scout team," Richt said. "There's no drama. There's no sense of urgency at the end of the half. We wanted to create that."

The offense made a comeback with Tavarres King catching the winning touchdown on a fade route from Hutson Mason.

There were at least five interceptions by the first-team defense and there were possibly more overturned due to giving the defense more reps, Richt said.

"It got to be interception mania for a minute," Richt said.

Potentially the most important note, nobody who participated in the scrimmage was injured. Malcolm Mitchell (leg), Marlon Brown (ankle), Richard Samuel (quad), John Jenkins (hamstring), Bruce Figgins (hamstring) did not go today. Richt said all of those guys should be ready before the season opener.

3. Orson Charles on his name being included in the report of wrongdoing at Maimi:

"It's not about Georgia. I'm focused on Boise State right now, and I'm with Georgia. I'm happy everything is resolved. I didn't get in trouble. Nobody got in trouble. Georgia didn't get in trouble.

"A lot of it is a blur to me because it was going into my junior year. Yeah, I don't remember that much."

4. Team captains were named for the Boise State game: Ben Jones, Brandon Boykin, DeAngelo Tyson and Drew Butler.

"It's an honor," Jones said. "I'm a senior now, and that was one of my main goals this offseason was to be one of the leaders on the team. Coach Richt nominating me to be a captain for the first game means a lot."

"Just playing in the Georgia Dome in kind of my hometown was just so significant for my senior year," Boykin said. "I really appreciate having that opportunity."

5. The starting five along the offensive line has remained intact throughout fall camp.

"It's always nice as an o-line having just five or six guys playing together and not rotating every day," Jones said. "Even if they do rotate, at least you know that, 'Hey, I've played with this guy for one or two racks of offense.' Just knowing each other and making the calls, everything runs a lot smoother."
