Dawgs Still getting after it

Even though G Day ended the public viewing of spring practices at Georgia - Tracy Rocker and Rob Sale were still barking at their players Tuesday.

ATHENS - G-Day may be over but the spirited way that defensive line coach Tracy Rocker and offensive line coach Rob Sale were barking at their players on the practice field Tuesday afternoon showed spring practices aren’t over.

“There was a little bit more yelling out there than normal,” offensive tackle John Theus said.

Dawson said for Rocker “every day is a work day. It’s for all the coaches. When we step on the field, it’s all work, there’s no playing around.”

Georgia completed its 14th of 15 workout in shorts and wraps up the spring workouts on Thursday.

“It’s definitely a gut check as a man,” Theus said. “You’ve got to find some motivation to get better every day and the ones who want to get better you see it. …You definitely have to have some personal goals to work on and to go out there and get better and don’t waste the time that you are out there.”

Theus said there was no steaks for the winning Black team this year or beanie weeenies (hot dogs and beans) for the losing Red team.

Theus played for the Red but said he considers it like he won because he played a series for the Black team when A.J. Turman scored his 52-yard touchdown.

This and that

Georgia had six wide receivers practicing without limitations on Tuesday. Malcolm Mitchell (shoulder) was in a non-contact jersey and Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring) was out. Shakenneth Williams (hamstring) returned in non-contact after missing much of the spring.

Tailback Keith Marshall (hamstring) practiced in a regular jersey after being held out of G-Day.

Offensive lineman Kendall Baker (eye) watched practice but did not take part.

Former Georgia running back Todd Gurley is among 26 who have accepted invitations to the NFL draft in Chicago. The draft runs April 30-May 2.
