“Bobo is Bobo,” Theus said. “That’s one thing, he’s going to come in here yelling and getting ready to work. That doesn’t change with him.”
Bobo, who recruits South Georgia, helped land Mitchell for Georgia out of Valdosta High.
“I would love for him to stay,” Mitchell said. “If he has to move on, that’s his choice. It is business at the end of the day.”
Bowl ticket update
Georgia still had about 2,600 tickets remaining from its allotment of 8,500 that it received from the Belk Bowl as of Thursday afternoon, according to ticket manager Tim Cearley
That indicates interest in the game from fans is lukewarm or they may have found tickets for less on the secondary market.
Georgia was in position to land in one of the top-tier bowls after the national semifinals before losing to Georgia Tech.
“The Belk’s a good bowl game and Charlotte’s a fun town,” offensive tackle Kolton Houston said. “I think everybody’s excited to see us go play Grantham. So I think the buzz is pretty good around here (on campus).”
This and that
Houston found out a week ago the NCAA approved a sixth season of eligibility. The decision wasn’t necessarily unexpected, but Houston and his older brother now need to find a new place to live since their six-month lease is ending. Houston was ineligible his first three seasons after testing positive for a banned substance. If the NCAA ruled this time differently, he was planning to “go into the corporate world. I’m glad I can come back here and play football for one more year.”
Theus described Georgia’s practices this week as similar to preseason camp practices. “It’s been a while since we’ve played and it’s going to be a while since we play again,” he said. Georgia completed its second on-campus bowl practice with two more to go. “Every practice, every meeting, every conditioning period is so crucial,” coach Mark Richt said.
