Tennessee Week: Wednesday Practice Report

ATHENS - The 10th-ranked Georgia Bulldogs continued preparations for their upcoming Southeastern Conference clash with 13th-ranked Tennessee by working out for two hours Wednesday.

Georgia coach Mark Richt said the Bulldogs had a lively practice and credited the scout team for doing a fine job. Georgia will face the SEC's leading passer in Erik Ainge and his receiver combination of Robert Meachem and Jayson Swain are the top duo in NCAA Division I-A, tallying 955 yards and 10 touchdowns this year.

Richt said the Bulldog secondary has played well this season, but it's one area where fortunes can change in a hurry.

"Fishermen and coaches remember the one that got away," said Richt. "You think about the Ole Miss game, they played well but you remember the long pass for a touchdown. They can play perfect for 95 percent of the game but you blow it on three plays, and it could mean 21 points. You can't afford any mistakes. Our coverage has been good, we need to become more physical as a group."

When talk turned to Georgia receivers Demiko Goodman and A.J. Bryant, Richt said they have been doing pretty well when their number has been called.

"Demiko's confidence went up after the last game, he's got some juice after making a big play on national television in helping us get a win," said Richt. "He dropped a few passes after that, but he's playing well. A.J. is as confident as he's ever been."
