Vanderbilt Week: Wednesday Practice Report

Posted Oct 12, 2005

ATHENS – The No. 4 University of Georgia football team practiced for a little more than two hours at the Woodruff practice fields on Wednesday afternoon. The emphasis of the practice was on third-and-medium and third-and-long scenarios.

According to Georgia head coach Mark Richt, the offense got the better of the drill on Wednesday, which is something that has not been the norm up to this point in the season.

“I thought we got better today,” said Richt. “Offensively we haven’t done well in that drill at all; maybe a couple times since camp started. Today our No. 1 offense really did a nice job of protecting and throwing and catching. And our No. 2 offense actually made a couple of plays. It has been a drill that has normally been dominated by the defense, but today the offense did a little bit better.”

Richt said the concentration of the Bulldogs was good in spite of players appearing to show some fatigue that comes and goes at different points in the season. This Saturday’s game at Vanderbilt will be the third of three consecutive games the Bulldogs are playing away from home. Last week’s 27-14 win at Tennessee was an emotional game which Richt thinks might have to do with why the team appeared a little bit sluggish.

“I think they spent themselves pretty good in that game and I think just cumulative reps,” said Richt.

Richt added that tomorrow’s lighter practice in shorts should help to re-energize the team, however because it is getting later in the year he also said they might need start to gear down a little bit.

Georgia faces the Commodores on national television this Saturday at 7:15 p.m. ET. The contest will be televised by ESPN 2.
