2007 Spring Practice: Day 8 Practice Report

ATHENS - Georgia's football team scrimmaged for two and a half hours at the Woodruff practice fields on Saturday with G-Day exactly two weeks away.

With temperatures in the mid-80s, the Bulldogs suited up in pads and played a full-contact scrimmage. Georgia head coach Mark Richt mentioned after Friday's practice about a "lack of interest" by his players, but he thought the Bulldogs turned it up several notches on Saturday.

"Today compared to Friday's practice was like night and day as far as the enthusiasm, the effort and the speed goes," said Richt. "That was the most important part for me. I am starting to see things come together for this group little by little. But I was impressed how hard the players were playing and how hard the coaches were coaching."

Saturday also marked one of the program's junior recruiting days with around 40 prospects spending the day at the scrimmage and around campus. According to Richt, the defense put on the best show for the recruits.

"Overall, I think the defense got the best of them today," Richt said. "There were some nice plays offensively. (Matthew) Stafford had a nice touchdown to Mikey Henderson and (Joe) Cox had one to Kenneth Harris. But there were more stops then big plays today."

Richt also added that there were no injuries, although linebacker Brandon Miller "took a shot during the scrimmage, but seems to be fine."
