2007 Fall Camp: Day Five Practice Report

ATHENS - The Georgia Bulldogs completed the installation phase of their season practices with a spirited two-hour session on Wednesday afternoon. The Dogs will don full pads and practice twice a day for the first time on Thursday.

"Today was the last day of installation," head coach Mark Richt said. "Everything from this point forward should be reviewed. There should be less mental mistakes, less foolish penalties this far into it."

The session was actually shortened about 30 minutes from practices the first four days.

"Practice today was very spirited," Richt said. "We cut out about 20 minutes of practice and also the conditioning. We know it has been hot, and they've worked extremely hard. There's no need to get depleted with more than 20 practices to go before the opener. I've been impressed with the work ethic and competitiveness to this point. I'm excited about that, but we're not disciplined enough."

Richt also announced that signee John Knox, a defensive back from Statesboro, Ga., arrived in Athens and will begin practicing on Thursday. Knox is yet to be confirmed by the NCAA Clearinghouse but can practice during a grace period under provisions of NCAA rules while that process is completed.

"He's in town and allowed to practice with us," Richt said. "He still has to go through a five-day acclimation period, which the rest of the team just completed. When we go twice Thursday, he can only be in one practice. He'll be off to the side a lot in practices but there are certain drills he can do and he can be in all meetings."
