Spring Practice Day 13: Practice Report

ATHENS - The Georgia football team practiced for an hour and a half on Wednesday afternoon, marking the final time the Bulldogs will practice in full pads before G-Day on Saturday.

Head coach Mark Richt and his staff will have one more practice on Friday afternoon before the annual spring scrimmage called G-Day arrives on Saturday afternoon. Richt is hoping for a strong showing in Sanford Stadium.

³I hope a lot of people show up so it will make it more and more exciting and more like a real game,² said Richt. ³I told the guys that there will probably be some people from around the nation who wouldn¹t normally be here to see them in this game.²

Richt also outlined some guidelines after Wednesday¹s practice for the scrimmage. There will be extra points and field goals, but no run-backs after the kicks and there will be no punt or kick-off returns. Also, the 10-yard-line is as deep as any offense will start following a punt or kick-off.

³A good G-Day game is a crisp game without a lot of penalties and fumbles, probably without a lot of scoring and for everyone to come out healthy,² Richt said.

Richt mentioned that former Bulldogs Greg Blue, D.J. Shockley, Frank Ros and Kevin Butler will be guest coaches for the Red and the Black teams on Saturday.

Kick-off for G-Day is set for 2:07 p.m. on Saturday at Sanford Stadium.
