Fast Five: Day 7, Rapid Updates

ATHENS - Dawg Post takes a look at the top five areas of interest from Georgia's eighth practice.

(One) 97 degree heat in Athens today. Thursday afternoon was a time for Georgia’s football team to show something. Dean Legge said it was time for players to show they were serious about ‘being a Dawg’ today.

I don’t know what else to say but that it was really, really hot out on the Woodruff Practice Fields.

(Two) Who sat out? Who practiced? Who wore green?

DB Shattle Fenteng, LB Ryne Rankin, WR Chris Conley, WR Justin Scott-Wesley and TE Jay Rome were all in green non-contact jerseys for Wednesday afternoon's practice. Fenteng did practice today, though.

LB Leonard Floyd was not in a green jersey today, continuing to go about his drills. LB Ramik Wilson was not in a green jersey either, but observed from the sidelines/did not participate in the drills I saw. He stood with Rankin, who was not dressed in pads or a helmet. Wilson wasn’t dressed out either.

(Three) That heat, man. It had a little effect on players today from what I saw. Former Georgia linebacker and current graduate assistant Christian Robinson was getting after his group of defensive backs.

I’m sure Jeremy Pruitt wouldn’t mind it, though. Robinson’s and fellow grad assistant Kelin Johnson’s intensity has not gone unnoticed.

(Four) An update on Jay Rome: Like I said, Rome was dressed in a green, non-contact jersey today. He spent the majority of the viewing periods on the stationary bike or in the sand pit, swinging what looked to be an axe. Regardless of the tool, he was getting a workout in. The fact he wore green today was a bit of a switch up in relation to previous practices – as was the fact he wasn’t on the field.

(Five) A lot of time was spent on handoffs for the quarterbacks today. I didn’t get to see them do a whole lot other than that. Jacob Park got quite a few reps, though – most of them without the ball. Hutson Mason, Brice Ramsey and Faton Bauta were fine, and in sync with the backs. Park is still learning, though.

As a matter of fact, Ramsey told me on Wednesday that Park is catching on faster than he did in his first fall camp.
