It was also announced on Wednesday that Richt will be joining four other collegiate football coaches, including Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville, for a trip to military bases throughout the Middle East on May 20-26.
³We hope to let the troops know much they mean to us and that a lot of people back home are praying for them,² Richt said. ³There are some similarities with playing football and serving in the military such as strategy, tactics, training and the fact that it takes a lot of guys doing the right thing to have success. But there is much more on the line when you¹re fighting in the military.²
Richt mentioned after practice that redshirt freshman tailback Caleb King was held out of practice on Wednesday with a sore knee, but the coaching staff did not anticipate King¹s injury to be a serious one.
Georgia has practice scheduled for Friday and then three days next week before the spring concludes with the annual spring scrimmage. The Bulldogs play G-Day at Sanford Stadium on Saturday, April 5, at 2 p.m.
