2006 Spring Practice: Day 10 Practice Report

Posted Mar 29, 2006

ATHENS – The University of Georgia football team held its 10th spring practice on Wednesday afternoon at the Woodruff practice fields. The session went for approximately two hours with the players in full pads.

“Today was a good, physical day,” said Georgia head coach Mark Richt. “It was a humdinger of a practice. I think this has been a really good spring to this point. Today we finished up with some goal line work and the No. 1 units ended in a 2-2 draw, but the No. 2 defense stepped up and was better this time around.”

Following practice, Richt spoke about quarterback position, specifically relating to Joe Tereshinski.

“My mindset going in has remained the same,” said Richt. “I want to be as objective as I can be and let all four QBs get as many repetitions as equally as possible. We want to throw them out there and see how they perform. But trying to get enough significant reps with four QBs is hard and it might not be enough to move the depth chart. Things I look for in a quarterback are accuracy, good decision making and handling the pressure of the job. Those are things that I have found coaching quarterbacks this long.

“Joe (Tereshinski) deserves to be working with the No. 1 team,” continued Richt. “He’s earned that. He is having a great spring leadership wise and he is making all of the right throws pretty accurately.”

Richt also specified that Friday’s practice would be shortened due to the Coaches’ Clinic Georgia is hosting and that the team would scrimmage on Monday. The team has four practices remaining before its annual G-Day game on April 8.
