2007 Spring Practice: Day 12 Scrimmage Report

ATHENS - The Georgia football team scrimmaged at Stanford Stadium on Monday afternoon in preparation for G-Day on Saturday, April 7.

Dressed in full pads and working on a variety of game situations, the Bulldogs battled each other for about two hours and finished practice with several repetitions of goal-line stands.

"This was one of the rare spring practices where the offense had the better day. That doesn't happen often here or anywhere else in the country," said Georgia head coach Mark Richt. "This was maybe one of the best scrimmages for the offense since I've been here and the protection of the quarterback is where it started."

Richt said the offensive line, which features a host of freshman, junior college transfers and several returning linemen, made the difference during Monday's scrimmage.

"Mike (Bobo) did a good job of mixing the protections for the offensive line, which made it easier for them to protect our quarterbacks," Richt said. "But the o-line did a pretty nice job for us today."

During G-Day, which is the program's annual spring game, the No. 1 offense will be matched up against the No. 2 defense and the No. 2 offense will be squaring off against the No. 1 defense. Georgia's coaching staff will also split up for Saturday's game.

Junior Rowdy Francis was the only player injured during the scrimmage with what Richt called "a little bit of a concussion."

The Bulldogs have their final two spring practices on Wednesday and Friday. G-Day will be at Sanford Stadium on Saturday at 2 p.m.
