2007 Fall Camp: Day Eight News and Notes

ATHENS - Josh Kendall's news and notes from Georgia's fall camp.

MILLER IN LIMBO: Senior linebacker Brandon Miller may be on his way back to strongside linebacker, his position the last three years. The Bulldogs planned to move Miller to the middle this year and worked him there all spring, however Miller worked almost exclusively at strongside linebacker during Saturday's scrimmage, he said.

"They might" move me back, Miller said. "I'll play anywhere they put me. I'll play d-end, I'll play d-tackle, I'll play anywhere they put me."

Georgia is crosstraining Miller at middle and strong side, Darius Dewberry and strong side and weak side and Dannell Ellerbe at middle and weak side, Richt said.

"I would say it's not etched in stone right now of how we're going to line up at linebacker," he said, "but I think it'll be a combination of those three."

LOGJAM AT END: Jon Fabris knows who his starters are at defensive end, but that's about it, he said this week. Of course, Fabris wouldn't share those names, but it figures to be seniorMarcus Howard and sophomore Rod Battle, who entered the fall with the No. 1 spots.

Fabris is more concerned about what's going on behind the starters, he said.

"We have a lot o f guys who are kind of all there together," he said. "We've got guys that are not fourth string, but they may be the fourth guy who goes out there on that particular day. There's not that much difference between the second string guy and the fourth string guy that day."

GMC transfer Jarius Wynn, junior Jeremy Lomax and redshirt freshman Demarcus Dobbs, Kiante Tripp and Michael Lemon all are competing for time alongside Howard and Battle.

"Right now, I'm running with the third string, but I'm trying to work my way up to at least two," said Tripp, who missed spring practice due to an ankle injury but is full speed now. "I know it's going to be a hard time trying to work my up past Marcus and Rod Battle."
