Practice then Turkey for Dawgs

ATHENS - Georgia will practice on Thanksgiving morning and then the Bulldogs will scatter for their holiday meals.

Cornerback Damain Swann is going home to Atlanta to see his family.

“I ain’t going to load up,” he said. “I’m just going to enjoy a plate. Probably bring one back with me. You’ve got to be smart and take care of your body.”

Offensive tackle Kolton Houston is going home to Buford after practice.

“I’ll probably eat a little,” he said. “We are linemen.”

He said Friday’s practice “will get some of that turkey and dressing out of us.”

Players may decide to over a teammates’ house or some will have family coming to town to visit.

“We have all the coaches’ homes open to our players as well for whoever wants to have that meal,” Richt said.

Georgia players already chowed down on Tuesday night after practice with a Thanksgiving meal provided by the Athletic Association.

“I’m surprised they didn’t run out food,” Richt said.

Richt said he expects to be “sleepy by 2 o’clock,” Thursday afternoon after eating turkey at his home. About 50 people, including plenty of family members, are expected.
