³Every year, the guys say, OHow about we have a two-a-day on Thursday?¹ so they can leave that night and every year I tell them, ONo¹,² said Georgia head coach Mark Richt, who will be having his team¹s final practice before Christmas on Friday morning. ³They are ready to get home and then to get to New Orleans. But I tell them that while we¹re here, we might as well be getting work done.²
In addition to the effort of several other players who have redshirted, Richt said quarterback Logan Gray, who is playing the role of Hawai¹i quarterback Colt Brennan in practice, is helping his team learn about the Warrior offense.
³Logan has done a great job all year,² said Richt. ³He is built just like (Colt), but it¹s hard to simulate what they¹re doing but hopefully our scout team can give a little semblance of what their offense does.²
Richt also added that junior linebacker Marcus Washington ³tweaked his ankle² in practice earlier this week, but he expects him to play against Hawai¹i.
Kickoff for the game between Georgia (10-2) and the Warriors (12-0) is slated for 8:30 p.m. ET and will be televised by FOX.
