Fall Practice Notes - August 15

Athens --- The Georgia Bulldogs completed their two-a-day practices on Wednesday evening with an hour-and-a-half scrimmage.

Earlier in the day, the Dogs conducted a special teams workout at Sanford Stadium which lasted approximately two hours.

"I think we've gotten as much done as we could have in two-a-days," head coach Mark Richt said. "It's just eight days, though. That's not a lot. It's nothing to sneeze at, but it wasn't a long two-a-day session."

Overall, Richt was pleased with his team's effort and performance to date. "They've been a good group. They've worked really hard," Richt said. "Now it's a blessing that we're out of the grind because the guys can recover and get their legs back under them. It will give the coaches time to really get our game plans together. Sometimes you don't have an awful lot of time after two-a-days and you find yourself, in the preparation, you almost feel like it's happening too fast. Now, we have two-and-a-half weeks."

Richt did not have an answer to the most-asked question throughout the fall camp.

"Two-a-days are over, and I don't have a decision on the quarterback yet," Richt said. "Hopefully, within a day or two after Saturday's scrimmage, we'll be able to name one. It's really been this way...a guy you're just about ready to say 'he's probably out of the race' and then in one given practice he looks the best of everyone. There's not a clear-cut guy at all. I would say they've done more positive things as a group than negative things as a group."

During Wednesday scrimmage, the quarterbacks were not as productive as they were in last Saturday's first scrimmage of the fall.

"My impression was that they were not as sharp as they were in the first scrimmage," Richt said. "The offense in general wasn't as sharp. The pass protection in the first scrimmage, I think, was better than it was in this scrimmage. That usually has a lot to do with what kind of day the quarterback has."

During the early portion of the evening practice, freshman defensive lineman Reggie Weeks suffered a knee injury. The extent of the injury was not immediately known.

Georgia opens the season two weeks from this Saturday, on Sept. 1 against Arkansas State at Sanford Stadium. Kickoff for the opener is slated for 1:00 p.m.
