"The enthusiasm and effort throughout practice was outstanding," said Richt. "That was fun. It was a good practice. It felt like Spring football, and the weather was like it too." Georgia worked on all phases of the game and the end of practice was capped with a brief scrimmage including multiple goal-line situations. Richt said he was thankful there were no serious injuries after a lot of contact.
The number one defense shut down the number two offense while the number one offense went 2-for-4 in touchdowns drives against the number two defense. Richt said he was a little disappointed about the offense. "We'll never be a great offense unless we execute better with the run and the pass."
He didn't point out specific plays or players, and when asked about plays from the South Carolina game, Richt dismissed that as "old news." He did mention the Bulldogs are working on several different things to improve offensively.
Georgia is scheduled to practice Wednesday and Thursday, lift weights on Friday, take Saturday off and then return to work on Sunday.
Due to a bye week, the Bulldogs next game will be Saturday, Sept. 29 when they play host to Arkansas. Kickoff is slated for 6:30 pm ET, and the game will be televised by ESPN2. All Georgia football games will be broadcast on NewsTalk 750 WSB and the WSB/Georgia Bulldogs Radio Network.
