South Carolina Week: Tuesday Practice Report

ATHENS - The No. 12-ranked Georgia Bulldogs (1-0) went through a spirited two-and-a-half-hour workout in full pads on Tuesday afternoon in preparation for this Saturday's SEC opener against South Carolina (1-0) at Sanford Stadium.

"We were trying to go 'thud' but everybody seemed like they wanted to tackle," head coach Mark Richt said. "They were pretty excited to practice today. We got a good break on the weather with some cloud cover."

Earlier in the afternoon Richt discussed the match-up with the Gamecocks during his weekly press conference.

"We know how important this game is," Richt said. "It¹s the first one of the year Southeastern Conference race. We have a high respect for this game. We have had a lot of close games with them over the years, and we don¹t think this will be anything but a 60-minute fight. This is a game that is huge for us and for them. The winner is on the right track and the loser is just about in a situation where they have to win out in order to win the league and that is very difficult to do.²
