ATHENS - Mark Richt speaks with media following Wednesday's practice before the North Texas game.

Mark Richt:

We had our Wednesday. It was an awful lot like a Thursday. When you have a Wednesday like that you kind of wish it was Thursday. It would be nice if we played a couple of days from now, but we've got another day to go.

Fans worry about UGA overlooking this team:

That's a big question from fans I get on my show, but when you watch their team you see a team that's really playing well. I mentioned before it was like 19 out of 22 guys that are juniors and seniors. A team that's only gave up six points in the second half of games. I don't care who you're playing; that's a sign of a really good team.

Jonathon Rumph:

He tweaked his hammy [hamstring] again so I don't think he's going to play again this game, unfortunately.

Corey Moore return for SC game:

The initial prognosis was 4-6 weeks or more like three weeks. He played by about four weeks from the injury. Usually it takes a little bit longer than that.

Nick Marshall and Zach Mettenberger starting at opposing SEC schools:

I'm happy for them that they've landed in a good place. I'm big on guys realizing they're dreams. That's why I coach.

I don't think anybody's been dismissed here without me being behind it. It's very possible for a guy to end up at another school and have that same story, so I'm not so bent on getting guys to come back.

I think everybody understood what was going on and why we did what we did.

Tray Matthews' return from injury:

It definitely set him back. He's a guy who's physically tough. He likes contact. He made some big hits and some really nice plays. Now you've got a lot more offensive schemes every week and you're not scrimmaging every practice. Now he's got to do that in games. Getting hurt when he got hurt is tough. He missed a lot.

Hutson Mason:

Same amount of reps this week. He gets a ton of reps with the two unit. He still gets a lot of reps with Murray and the ones. When it's team stuff it's mostly Murray ones and Mason twos. We believe in doing that all along.

Spread and hurry-ups:

I don't know if you can pitch a shutout. With the spread there are more yards and more points. It just happens that way. It takes a little while I think to really get good with tackling out in space. You have to practice it in the Fall and if you don't it will really hurt you.

Scholarships:

We've always tried to give everybody a fair shot.
