2006 Spring Practice: Day 2 Practice Report

ATHENS - The University of Georgia football team held its second spring practice Monday afternoon, a two-hour session in shorts at the Woodruff practice fields.

"Today's practice was just about as good as the first day," said Georgia head coach Mark Richt. "There was some good effort and energy out there. Right now we are still installing some things and working out in shorts but we'll get into pads on Wednesday. That's when the defense gets to shine, its hard for those guys to show their stuff in shorts."

Richt also commented on the play of the offense throughout practice.

"I saw a few too many dropped passes early," said Richt. "But then there were some great catches as practice went on. The throwing and catching has been hot and cold. All of the quarterbacks are making some good throws. We have to catch the ball better though and that goes for everyone, not just the wide receivers, that means the tight ends and running backs too."

Richt went on to offer his thoughts on some particular players who have been impressive during the first two workouts.

"Paul Oliver has done a great job at corner," said Richt. "And Tony Taylor has done really well also, disrupting things for the offense. All of the quarterbacks are making pretty good throws as well. Mohammed (Massaquoi) and Mario (Raley) have been our most consistent receivers."

Monday's practice also marked the second time that the running backs have practiced under new Running Backs' Coach, Tony Ball.

"Tony does a really good job," said Richt. "And our guys are veteran enough to make the adjustment. The system hasn't changed and they know the system well, so I really think it will work out great."

Georgia's next practice is scheduled for Wednesday, March 8, tentatively scheduled to start at 3:55 p.m.
