³I was really not all that impressed with practice,² Georgia coach Mark Richt said. ³We looked like a bunch of guys who just finished final exams and were tired. We have got to practice better as we go forward.²
Added receiver Kris Durham, ³Finals are a tough time in a student¹s life. You have to put in a lot of preparation time studying and staying up to all hours to get that GPA where you want it. We might have been a little tired tonight, but we know we¹ve got to come to work everyday. Finals are done now, so we don¹t have any excuses. We¹ve got to go about our business and prepare well.²
Earlier Wednesday, Richt held his bowl press conference and spoke highly of the Spartans and the Capital One Bowl.
³I see it as an outstanding matchup,² Richt said. ³I¹m sure the people at the Capital One Bowl are excited to know that there are two outstanding teams coming in that seem to be matched very evenly going in. I¹m sure they are excited about a great game and we are too.²
The Bulldogs are scheduled to practice through Saturday in Athens and then will reconvene in Orlando on Dec. 26.
