³Today was a heavy scout day to get prepared for Georgia Southern,² Richt said. ³On Thursday, we¹ll have a practice game against Georgia Southern. We¹ll do our sideline stretching, the coin toss and play one half with a moving clock. The first teamers will be Georgia and all the others will be Georgia Southern.
³This will be a big day for all of us, coaches included. Practices are scripted, but in this game anything can happen and we all need to react to it.²
Following practice, quarterback Matthew Stafford was asked about the Bulldogs¹ potential to have a big-play offense.
³I think we have a great chance to be pretty explosive both running and passing,² Stafford said. ³If the line opens holes, we¹ve got backs who can make things happen. And if they protect, we¹ve got receivers who can run by some folks.²
Asked if he would rather have an offense that primarily runs or passes, Stafford said, ³I just like getting points on the board.²
