While confirming Zook's firing for ESPN.com's Ivan Maisel, the unnamed assistant coach said, "We're planning for Georgia. We're going to beat Georgia."
Former Gator coach Steve Spurrier also took a chance to needle the
Bulldogs a little when contacted for his response to Zook's firing.
"Hopefully, our players and coaches understand that it's important
get ready for the Bulldogs," he told The Gainesville Sun. "As all
know, it's one of it not the biggest game of the season, and we've had
success against them recently."
Spurrier started Florida's streak of winning 13 of the last 14 games
against the Bulldogs.
INJURY UPDATE: Starting tailback Danny Ware was not at Georgia's
practice Monday, but tests on his bruised right lung provided good news,
Coach Mark Richt said.
"Everything came out very positive and he could be able to practice
(today)," Richt said.
Ware will not participate in contact at today's practice and remains
questionable for Saturday's game.
STATUS QUO: Georgia will keep its three-tackle rotation on the
offensive line despite inconsistent play against Arkansas.
"Hopefully, we'll play better," offensive line coach Neil Callaway
A LITTLE CLOSER: The Bulldogs moved up one spot in the Bowl
Championship Series standings this week from 10th to ninth. The Bulldogs
are now two spots ahead of Tennessee, which fell from ninth to 12th.
Southern California remains the BCS leader and Oklahoma jumped Miami to
get into the second spot this week.
KENTUCKY TIME SET: Georgia's Nov. 6 game against Kentucky in
Lexington, Ky., will be broadcast by Jefferson-Pilot at 12:30 p.m. It
will be the Bulldogs' second appearance on Jefferson-Pilot this year.
