Richt: Dawgs' offense needs more TDs

ATHENS - Coach Mark Richt was upset with his offense this weekend, and he let them know it on Tuesday, the first day the No. 7 Bulldogs returned to the practice field this week.

"He was very frustrated with us," quarterback D.J. Shockley said. "It was a lot harder day than everybody expected."

The Bulldogs practiced in full pads Tuesday and most of that work was spent working on red zone offense and defense. Georgia has an open date this weekend and returns to the playing field Oct. 8 against Tennessee in Knoxville.

Georgia is first in the SEC in total offense (468.2 ypg) and third in scoring offense (33 ppg), but it's just sixth in red zone offense. The Bulldogs have scored eight touchdowns on 18 trips inside their opponent's 20-yard line.

"We're just trying to get better down there," Richt said. "We just need to get more (touchdowns). We're not going to get a touchdown every time, but we need to get a higher percentage of them."
