ATHENS - Josh Kendall's news and notes from Georgia's fall practices.
Head coach Mark Richt
wasn't by a computer when Vanderbilt
's 49-yard, potentially game-winning field goal missed Friday. His wife Katharyn's brother called to break the news. "It was disappointing no doubt," he said. "If it was Tennessee
's last game in the league, it probably would have hurt worse, but we're always going to go hold out hope that Kentucky
can take care of business." … Georgia
is No. 7 in this week's BCS rankings, which means the Bulldogs very likely will go to a BCS bowl if they win this week, regardless of whether they get a chance to play for the SEC title. "Our guys understand that," Richt said. … Georgia fans aren't the only ones thinking about the ones that got away. Richt watched a copy of his team's Sept. 8 loss to South Carolina
on Friday. "I guess I wanted to see how many plays we missed," he said.
Quotable: "It's extremely tough. There are a lot of emotions going on while you're walking out. You see your family, your mom and dad, and you're trying to fight back tears and at the same time you have to get ready to go to war and beat Kentucky." – senior running back Thomas Brown on the conflicting emotions of senior day
Injuries: Georgia went into the Kentucky game as healthy as it has been all season, and the Bulldogs did not appear to suffer any new injuries. Richt did not mention any injuries during his Sunday news conference.
