Fall Practice Notes - August 13

ATHENS----Georgia head coach Mark Richt said he was not pleased with the overall effort of his team during Monday's two workouts.

The Bulldogs held a pair of two-hour practices, going in full pads in the morning and then in shorts and shoulder pads in the evening.

"It was a feel sorry for themselves day," said Richt. "I didn't see a lot of hustle, and it was a half-hearted effort at best. The morning session was very disappointing. The players acted real tired and we're trying to pace themselves. Everybody wasn't like that but as a group that's how it went."

After reviewing film from Saturday's scrimmage held at Sanford Stadium, Richt said he was encouraged with the play of the squad.

"Overall, I thought the number one defense played well, and the number one offense had good execution," said Richt. "There were not a lot of penalties or missed assignments and usually in the first scrimmage you have those but we didn't."

Georgia continues two-a-day sessions on Tuesday. The Bulldogs open the season Sept. 1 against Arkansas State. Kickoff at Sanford Stadium is scheduled for 1 p.m.
