"You'd think he might have been a little rusty in his footwork and passing," Richt said, "but he was very business-like. I'm sure he was trying to prove to me that he feels good, so even if he wanted to limp, he wasn't about to."
Richt admitted Tuesday that he's more confident with Tereshinski under center than either Stafford or freshman Joe Cox.
"We need some more leadership on offense," he said. "Our quarterbacks, for being young, have handled things pretty well, but it's tough to be a confident leader when you're really just feeling your way. Joe (Tereshinski) is very confident. He knows exactly what he's doing."
Richt will enter the game planning to play Stafford regardless of how Tereshinski performs, he said.
"Hopefully, in the first half, but I wouldn't promise anything," he said. "Who knows what could happen in the game. We've gone into some games thinking one thing and it turned out something totally different."
