Ole Miss Week: Tuesday Practice Report

Posted Sep 26, 2006

ATHENS - The Georgia Bulldogs (4-0, 1-0 SEC) practiced for two and a half hours on full pads on Tuesday afternoon to prepare for their SEC matchup with Ole Miss (1-3, 0-1 SEC) this Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Georgia altered its usual Tuesday schedule somewhat, moving the 11-on-11 portion of the workout between the No. 1 and No. 2 offenses and defenses to earlier in the session.

"We just wanted to get the heavy work out of the way and then concentrate solely on the scout team work afterwards," head coach Mark Richt said. "Before our break is more high intensity and more competitive. After the break is more mental learning."

Richt talked about this weekend's dates with the Rebels at length during his weekly press session earlier in the afternoon.

"Their defense has a lot of young players, but they're talented," Richt said. "They love to run their safeties to the line of scrimmage to deter the running game. (Linebacker) Patrick Willis is one of the best defensive players in the SEC. He hits kind of like Charles Johnson on our team, who knocks down linemen and then picks up and slams running backs.

"Their offense revolves around Brent Schaeffer, who has a very strong arm," Richt continued. " They kind of had a situation like us this past week with their quarterbacks where they wanted to change things up. But I've read this week that Coach (Ed) Orgeron will probably go with Schaeffer again and I think he has the potential to create all kinds of problems for us. He can do what Colorado's quarterback (Bernard Jackson) does and then some."
