"I felt like we were dragging a little too much," Richt said. "I think our guys were trying to give good effort (Tuesday) and just couldn't."
Backup fullback Jason Johnson (ankle) will not play Saturday, Richt said.
STICKY FINGERS: Richt has continued to rave about about how well his defensive backs are making plays, and thereby set up safety Tra Battle, a Forysth native, for the funniest line of the week.
"We looked at that Little Giants (movie) and saw where that kid put the glue on his hands so we started that," Battle said.
In all seriousness, all the Bulldogs are noticing the defensive backs making plays.
"They've been able to catch some balls that, in the past, they haven't been able to catch," quarterback Joe Tereshinski said.
ANOTHER COMMITMENT: Missouri tight end Aron White verbally commitment to Georgia today. White, a teammate of Bulldog commitment Logan Gray, picked Georgia over Arizona State and Missouri, according to Scout.com.
White, 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, is considered a four-star prospect by Scout.com.
ONE OF MANY: The season won't start for another five days, but defensive end Quentin Moses already has been honored by the SEC. Moses was named this week as the league's Good Works Team player of the week. Moses have volunteered in and around Athens with Parenting with Love, St. Mary's Hospital and the East Athens Community Center among other organizations.
THIS AND THAT: According to a report in Wednesday's USA Today, the six true freshmen who enrolled early this year at Georgia were the most in the nation. … The top three running backs – Thomas Brown, Kregg Lumpkin and Danny Ware – all will play Saturday and probably in the first half, Richt said. … Saturday's Dawg Walk will begin at 10:45 a.m. … Georgia will have two, fan-friendly, alcohol-free zones. One will be in the north campus quadrangle and one will be at D.W. Brooks Mall.
