Scrimmage Notes from Saturday

The Georgia Bulldogs conducted their second scrimmage of the pre-season at Sanford Stadium on Saturday

Athens, Ga. --- The Georgia Bulldogs conducted their second scrimmage of the pre-season at Sanford Stadium on Saturday, working out for just over two hours before a thunderstorm cut the session slightly short. "It was cut a little bit short, but we got most of it in," head coach Mark Richt said. "We had some red zone and goal line to finish that we didn't get to. We do goal line every day we're in pads so we get a good bit of that in regular practices anyhow."

Richt saw plenty of positives and negatives during the practice.

"I know we made a lot of mistakes, enough mistakes that would probably get us beat in a close ballgame, but we also had so many guys do so many good things," Richt said. "By the time I walked off the field, I felt good about how the scrimmage had gone. The mistakes that were made are correctable."

The coaching staff will use film from Saturday in making depth chart decisions in the coming days.

"We've got some decisions to make," Richt said. "We're going to have to make them for good reasons. Some times you're just trying to figure out who's your best option. In our case at this point a lot of guys are really playing well. We've just got to decide who's the best of the best. We're getting ready to hone down our game plan for Clemson and we have to decide which guys will work with the scout group. Some decisions may be clear already. We'll have a practice game on Thursday night and after that we'll really know."

Georgia, the defending SEC Champions, was ranked No. 11 in the pre-season Associate Press top-25 poll released on Saturday. Earlier this month, the Bulldogs were ranked No. 9 in the ESPN/USA Today pre-season coaches poll. The Dogs will open their season in two weeks on August 30 at Clemson. Kickoff is set for 12:00 p.m., and the game will be televised to much of the nation on ABC.
