ATHENS — Georgia fans are already making their menus for next Saturday and making sure the tailgating trailer is packed. Georgia players are mainly just tired.

Twenty practices into the season and 11 days from the first game, the Bulldogs have yet to be hit with that first-game rush of adrenaline. No. 13 Georgia opens the season Sept. 3 against No. 18 Boise State at 5:30 p.m. in Sanford Stadium.

“This is the toughest week to stay focused,” Coach Mark Richt said after his team finished a two-hour practice Tuesday evening. “It still seems a long way away for a player who knows he has five, six, seven practices to go.”

Tuesday was the Bulldogs’ fourth day of specific preparation for Boise State, working against its scout team mimicking the Broncos’ offensive and defensive systems.

“We just have a lot of respect for Boise and what they do,” Richt said. “We want to make sure we’re prepared.”
