UAB Week: Wednesday Practice Report

ATHENS - In a move designed to keep the Bulldogs fresh for their upcoming game against the UAB Blazers, 10th-ranked Georgia held a 90-minute indoor workout Wednesday at the Ramsey Student Center.

"We were struggling a bit, and I felt like we needed some rest because UAB runs well, they will be excited to play and I want us to match it," said Georgia coach Mark Richt.

He added the lack of an open date until Nov. 18 was a factor in the decision, as Georgia will play 11 straight games before an off week.

"If we had an open date earlier in the season, then maybe we would've practiced outside today, but I'm thinking about four or five weeks down the road and putting us in position to make it through."

The Bulldogs (2-0) are preparing for a UAB squad that is 1-1 on the year, falling to nationally ranked Oklahoma and then bouncing back with a win over East Carolina this past Saturday. Richt said the Blazers look physical on film and are very versatile on offense. He said he expects it to be a great matchup.

Also on Wednesday, it was announced that Georgia senior defensive end Quentin Moses was among the 11 student-athletes nationally to be selected to the American Football Coaches Association Good Works Team. He is the 10th Bulldog in school history to be honored by the organization for his dedication and commitment to community service.

"It was great news about Quentin (Moses) making the AFCA Good Works Team," said Richt. "He is an outstanding young man and very deserving. You have to have the community service and be a pretty good football player for the people to recognize you."
