Bowl Practice Notes - December 25

NASHVILLE, TENN.-----The 16th-ranked Georgia Bulldogs began final preparations here Tuesday for the Music City Bowl, holding a two-hour practice at the Tennessee Titans indoor facility.

All the Bulldogs arrived in Nashville during the afternoon and then headed to the "Titans Bubble" for an early evening workout in shorts and shoulder pads. Georgia coach Mark Richt said he was pleased with the effort and intensity shown by the Bulldogs during their Christmas practice.

"I thought everyone did a good job out there, and they handled it well," said Richt. "I am curious to see how they handle it Wednesday when we practice outside. A lot of guys thought it was cold tonight, and we were indoors."

Richt added the Bulldogs were happy to be in Nashville with an opportunity to win their ninth game of the season but said Boston College will be a formidable foe.

"I saw Boston College shut down a great offensive team in Miami and they had a chance to beat them," said Richt. "We will have our work cut out for us Friday."

Senior captain Verron Haynes said the Bulldogs are excited about having a chance to play another game.

"True champions get up for every game," said Haynes. "Just playing in a bowl game is a privilege and a pleasure."

Georgia (8-3) has scheduled an afternoon practice Wednesday at an area high school and a morning workout on Thursday before facing Boston College (7-4) Friday at 4 p.m. CT. The Music City Bowl will be played at Adelphia Coliseum, the home of the Titans.

ESPN will televise the Music City Bowl plus fans can follow all the action on WSB 750 AM/Georgia Bulldog Radio Network.
