Vandy Week: Tuesday Practice Report

ATHENS - Thunder and lightning forced the Georgia Bulldogs from the practice field just under 30 minutes into their full-pad workout on Tuesday afternoon. The team eventually conducted a session lasting a little more than an hour in gyms at UGA's Ramsey Student Center.

The No. 24-ranked Bulldogs (4-2, 2-2 SEC) will travel to Nashville, Tenn., this weekend to face Vanderbilt (3-2, 1-2).

Practice was suspended by head coach Mark Richt following several claps of thunder. The team then conducted brief position meetings while waiting on buses to the Ramsey Center. Once there, the defense worked out in the gym which hosts Georgia Volleyball matches, while the offense got its work in in an auxiliary gym.

"It's not a great situation having to go inside, but that's just what we had to do today," Richt said. "We got as much out of it as we could."

Earlier on Tuesday, Richt met with the media for his weekly press conference and discussed Saturday's date with the Commodores.

"The game is on national television this week and Vanderbilt has a sold-out crowd, so I know they will be excited about that," Richt said. "They have a team that is returning 18 players that have been starters for them, not counting two specialists who have been starters for them, so they are a very veteran ball club. We have a tremendous challenge here. Last year, they came into our house and beat us. It was no fluke. They came in and went toe-to-toe with us and came out with a victory. They know what it is like to beat Georgia so we know we have a tough one ahead of us and we are working hard to get back in the win column."
