Ole Miss Week: Monday News and Notes

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

CONSOLATION PRIZE: Brandon Coutu probably doesn't think he had a very good game Saturday, but someone does. Coutu was named a Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award Star of the Week along with two other players Monday.

Coutu hit two field goals a 45- and a 47-yard field goal against Alabama but missed two other kicks, including one that would have given Georgia the win in regulation. Coutu is 7-of-10 on field goals and leads Georgia with 34 points.

DOOLEY HONORED: Former athletics director Vince Dooley was given the Homer Rice Award on Monday at a ceremony in Dallas. The award is the highest honor given annually by the Athletic Directors Association.

TENNESSEE GAME TIME: CBS announced Monday it will televise Georgia's Oct. 6 game against Tennessee at 3:30 p.m. The Bulldogs and Volunteers will meet in Neyland Stadium, where Georgia has won three straight games.

CAMP LOCKDOWN: It's not officially official yet, but it's looking that way. Georgia's practice was closed again Monday, suggesting that Richt plans to make that his new policy, however, sports information director Claude Felton said Richt still may end up opening the doors again.
