Dawgs back in full pads

ATHENS – Georgia continued practice on Tuesday in full pads. The Bulldogs got in an unscheduled practice yesterday that focused on special teams.

The weather continues to be a factor for the Bulldogs as Georgia saw temperatures creep into the 80s as they practiced in full gear.

Head Coach Mark Richt said that the defense ruled the day today after battling to a draw in last Saturday's scrimmage.

"I definitely thought the defense controlled the day. There were still some nice plays offensively but they were kind of few and far between," he said.

"The defensive unit is playing extremely well and the second unit is still learning to play at the speed the coaches want. Offensively we tried to put in a new protection and the offensive line is just starting to pick up some things and now it looks like we're starting over. It was still a good workday, though," Richt said.

It's normal for the defense to be well ahead of the offense at this stage of the football year. In fact many were surprised that the offense held up so well in Saturday's scrimmage.

"I was at Florida State 15 years and maybe two years the offense would have done better than the defense. It's a very bad sign if the offense is having its way," added Richt.
