Bowl Time: 11/27/07 News and Notes

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

Freshman tailback Knowshon Moreno was not 100 percent Saturday but is not seriously hurt, head coach Mark Richt said. "I don't know exactly what it was but you could tell he was not feeling well," Richt said. "A couple times when he got to our sideline, he looked a little banged up, but I don't think it's anything serious." Moreno carried 17 times for 45 yards against Georgia Tech. It was his lowest output since the Oct. 6 Tennessee game. … Georgia may break from traditio n and have one practice this week and next. The Bulldogs traditionally take a long break after the regular season. … Georgia's coaches will spend much of the next two weeks focused on recruiting. The way the Bulldogs ended the season will help in that effort. "We're right in the middle of the national talk," Richt said. "The BCS bowl games get the media attention for the longest time during the bowl season so that will be good for us. All the attention is very good for our program."

Quotable: "We are not the best team in the SEC right now because (if we were) we would have been in the SEC championship, but I feel that we are one of the hottest." – senior safety Kelin Johnson

Injuries: Head athletic trainer Ron Courson believes place-kicker Brandon Coutu will be able to kick in the bowl game, Richt said. Coutu pulled a hamstring muscle while hitting a 45-yard field goal Saturday. Senior tailback Kregg Lumpkin, who has missed the last five games due to a knee injury, will return for the bowl game as well, Richt said.
