2006 Spring Practice Day 12 Scrimmage Report

ATHENS - The Georgia football team scrimmaged for more than two hours at Sanford Stadium on Monday afternoon during their final week of spring practice.

With quarterbacks Joe Tereshinski (senior), Blake Barnes (redshirt sophomore), Joe Cox (redshirt freshman) and Matthew Stafford (freshman) rotating series, Bulldog head coach Mark Richt and his coaching staff had more chances to see how the quarterbacks react to full-speed action.

"They didn't have a lot of time," Richt said. "The officials were probably pretty nice and let some balls get off that shouldn't have [during the scrimmage, play was stopped when quarterbacks were touched]. It was more a day of how can you manage things when it's not going well."

Defensively, Richt said redshirt sophomore Ramarcus Brown returned an interception for a 75-yard touchdown on the last play of the scrimmage before the team switched to goal-line situations. Richt added that senior Tra Battle also had an interception and that junior Charles Johnson had one of the top performances of the day.

"I feel better about the defense overall today," Richt said. "I was getting concerned that it was getting too even. The defense really stepped up and played well."

Georgia has practices scheduled on Wednesday and Friday and will be playing in the annual G-Day spring scrimmage on Saturday, April 8th. Kick-off for Saturday's game is at noon.

In addition, redshirt freshman cornerback Bryan Evans left practice after a collision while making a tackle on Monday. Director of Sports Medicine Ron Courson said Evans was taken to the hospital and is still undergoing tests.
