Fall Practice Notes - August 22

ATHENS, Ga. -- The Georgia football team continued preparations for its upcoming season opener by practicing for about two hours on Wednesday in helmets and shoulder pads.

The Bulldogs will open the season on Sept. 1 at home against Arkansas State. During Wednesday's session, Georgia's scout team simulated some of the Indians' formations and plays.

"We spent a good hour working on our first opponent," Georgia coach Mark Richt said. "The scout team gave us a good look. We'll progressively do more and more. We've still got the rest of this week and next week, and since you normally put a game plan in over four or five days, we're still way ahead of normal preparation time. By Friday, we'll be doing much more scout work."

Richt added that the Bulldogs continue to be focused on improving in areas of their own. "We're still working hard to get better fundamentally," Richt said. "The game is still a ways off and the players are tired of whacking on each other, but they fought through it pretty good today. We'll keep going against each other to keep the pace of the game. The scout team can't always simulate the speed you need to see."

The season opener with Arkansas State will kick off at 1 p.m.
