"It depends on the weather," he said. "I think if we get a light rain, we will probably go ahead with the practice. You never know when you will have to play a game in weather."
Georgia has played in unfavorable conditions a few times in the past few seasons; perhaps the worst came against Ole Miss in 2000. In that game, Georgia battled the Rebels, the near freezing temperatures, as well as the rain, to win 32-14.
Georgia spotted the Rebels a 14 point lead before halftime before scoring 32 unanswered points. This week Richt just hopes to stay out of the rain on Saturday.
"That's the thing about weather: you never know where it's going; it could change," said Richt. "I know it's getting close and as it gets closer I will watch it closer. Thursday is the big day we don't know about yet. If it is raining on Thursday, and not thundering and lightning – it's good to go out and practice in the wet because you can play in a wet game. I would opt for practicing the rain Thursday unless it's awful."
