Fall Practice Notes - September 5

The heat and humidity the Georgia Bulldogs (1-0) avoided for the most part during their workouts to date this season appeared in full force on Wednesday afternoon in Athens. Muggy conditions in the low 90s produced an adverse effect on the two-and-a-half hour session.

"The sun really came out this afternoon," head coach Mark Richt said. "That's all right, though, because we needed it. It showed we weren't ready for it. Maybe it's a blessing it's a night game (this Saturday). Maybe it will be a little cooler. They wilted today. Not all of them but more than I would like to count. I'm glad we didn't play today."

Richt announced the captains from last Saturday's game will remain the same this weekend, with center Curt McGill serving as offensive captain, rover Jermaine Phillips as defensive captain and snapper Andy Hogan as special teams captain.

"We met about it Sunday and decided to stay with the same three guys," Richt said. "They all did a good job in those roles."

Georgia, ranked No. 24 and No. 25 in this week's ESPN/USA Today and AP coaches polls, respectively, opens the SEC portion of its schedule this Saturday. The Bulldogs will host No. 24 South Carolina (1-0) at 7:45 p.m. ET in an ESPN nationally televised showdown. All Georgia football games can be heard on NewsTalk 750 WSB and the WSB/Georgia Bulldogs Radio Network.
