Georgia coach Mark Richt said the decision to move indoors was to help the team remain fresh for the upcoming season opener Saturday with Western Kentucky. The squad worked in two gymnasiums with the offense in one and the defense in another.
³On Tuesday, the players were trying to give great effort, but we thought they were a little leg weary so we decided to go indoors today,² said Richt. ³We still have a couple more days to prepare so today was more of a walking, talking, teaching day, and then they should be ready to go by Saturday. We¹ve got two days for a dress rehearsal and then it will be time to play.²
When the subject turned to helping freshmen establish a solid foundation during their first year in college, Richt said he and his staff have a plan in place.
³We do keep a close eye on the freshmen as they become more independent, just like any other freshmen having to grow up when they go off to college,² said Richt. ³We have things like mandatory study hall and a curfew for the freshmen because they are more vulnerable at this point in their life.²
