2005 Fall Camp: Day 3 News and notes

ATHENS - An old nemesis has returned to the Georgia practice fields: dropped passes.

"I've seen just far too many dropped balls, period," Richt said. "That's probably been the biggest disappointment of camp."

The Bulldogs' wide receivers, running backs and tight ends dropped 14 passes in the first two days of passing drills, Richt said.

"And I bet we might have matched that number just today," he said. "I know it was rainy and wet and that kind of thing, but it stopped raining and I think the balls were in good enough shape."

"We've just dropped an unbelievable amount. It's just throwing and catching. It's more like throwing and dropping lately. It hasn't been very good at all. If everybody keeps dropping it equally well, then we'll have to go with who is blocking better."

On the flip side, starting cornerback Tim Jennings had two interceptions Monday, giving him three in the last two days of practice.

STRENGTH AWARDS: The Bulldogs handed out their summer conditioning awards on Monday night, and defensive lineman Kedric Golston took home the highest honor, the Leon Farmer Strength and Conditioning Award. The top-conditioned athletes in each category were Thomas Brown (overall), Dennis Roland (linemen), Bryan McClendon (skill positions) and Forsyth native Jamario Smith (big skill position players).
