"One thing that helps us from being complacent is that we lost a lot of people on offense," said Greene. Georgia will be without its whole offensive line, both of its running backs, as well as star wide receiver Terrence Edwards in 2003.
"There are a lot new faces in the huddle," said Greene. "I think that I could be easier to be complacent if everyone was returning."
Georgia has completed four of its ten scheduled mat drills and start spring practice on March 1st. Developing the offense, specifically, the offensive line will be the focal point of the month-long practice session.
"I don't think that anyone is complacent," said Greene. "I can tell because of the way that mat drills have been going. The party is over, this is the start of a new season, and we have a new team."
Greene said that the celebration of winning the SEC as well as the Sugar Bowl victory was fun, but that is has been over for some time.
"You get to enjoy it," he said. "But just for a little while. You get a few weeks and then you get back to work again. You figure out who the new team is and once you. The celebration has defiantly stopped."
Georgia head coach Mark Richt said during yesterday's press conference that Greene was the starter going into the spring drills. Richt added that building depth and getting practice time for both the offensive line and the running backs was the number one priority this spring.
