2006 Fall Camp: Day 19 News and Notes

ATHENS - Josh Kendall's news and note from Georgia's final day of fall camp.

NEW PLAN: Ball has been changing more than Southerland's footwork. He's also revamped the Bulldogs' kickoff return strategy heading into the season. It's hardly a bold move, though, since almost anything would be an improvement.

The Bulldogs finished 10th in the SEC in kickoff returns last year (19.5 yards per return) and have perpetually underachieved in that area since Mark Richt became the head coach. Thisyear, rather than using two deep men, the Bulldogs will use just one, a formation they experimented with in 2005 but didn't stick with.

"Hopefully, this one will have better results than what we've had here in a while," said Henderson, the No. 2 returner.

Thomas Brown will be the top kickoff returner.

BARNES UPDATE: Sophomore quarterback Blake Barnes isn't looking to leave Georgia just yet. Barnes, a Mississippi native, said he wouldn't rule out transferring after being named the co-No. 3 quarterback along with Matthew Stafford.

However, on Saturday, he said he isn't making any plans.

"I'm not considering transferring. I'm not looking at options. I still feel this is where I want to be," he said. "Georgia's the place for me. I still feel like I have a shot. I don't think it's over yet. I'm still competing. Right now, I'm not entertaining thoughts of leaving or going anywhere."
