The problem with the artificial surface fields is they are almost 10 degrees warmer than the natural surface.
"I tell you w hat, it's an understatement, but it was hot out there," Richt said. "Overall,I'm really pretty proud of how the guys have held up. I think our strength staff did a very good job of getting our guys in shape, especially considering it wasn't really hot this summer. Ironically, (the heat wave) started the very first day of practice."
INJURY UPDATE: Cornerback Bryan Evans (hamstring) finally got full speed work Monday. He had been limited since the first week of practice. Junior defensive tackle Jarius Wynn is being slowed by a groin injury.
Haverkamp probably won't return until Monday, Richt said.
