Georgia continues practice on Monday

ATHENS – Georgia continued spring practice today by working out in shorts and helmets. The Bulldogs will start practice in pads tomorrow.

"We are still installing the offense and the defense," said Georgia Head Coach Mark Richt. "Right now there is not a lot that you can see. The guys with experience are way ahead of the guys that don't have any."

Richt pointed out that freshman quarterbacks A.J. Bryant and Blake Barnes are still trying to keep their heads above water during practice. He also said that practice will be more intense tomorrow.

"Tomorrow, in pads, things will pick up," he said.

Richt has been pleased with the attitude and skill of his Bulldogs this spring. He said that the off season strength and conditioning program has a lot to do with the mental toughness that the team has developed. Those reasons, according to Richt, make it a joy for he and his staff to teach to the team.

But the spring is about competing for playing time and starting positions and Richt confirmed that his team is doing plenty of that right now.

"That's a priority at every position. That's what spring is all about: who starts and who plays and how much?" he said.
