"Camp's over and I think we accomplished most everything we could to find out about our team," Georgia coach Mark Richt said. "We're still experimenting some on the offensive line. We're trying to find our best combinations. That's our biggest question that we have right now."
The Bulldogs wrapped up their two-a-day sessions with a special teams scrimmage at Sanford Stadium and their work in "shells" at the Woodruff Practice Fields. Following the morning workout, Georgia's players, coaches and support staff celebrated with the watermelon cutting ceremony, a tradition that dates back three decades.
"I think they really enjoyed the watermelons, especially after a hot practice," Richt said. "I know I did. I had a couple of pieces and got a whole one to take home."
Additionally, Georgia's preseason camp newcomers sported some interesting haircuts courtesy of their upperclassmen teammates. Some of the newly shorn Bulldogs had trimmed their locks completely off before the afternoon practice.
Richt was asked about the team's punting competition between Drew Butler and Brian Mimbs.
"I would give a slight edge to Butler," Richt said. "If we played today, we'd have him kick. It's still a very competitive situation, very tight. It's not an ability thing as much as a consistency thing."
Richt also gave an update on the Bulldogs' receiving corps.
"They are playing very good," Richt said. "All of them are taking turns making plays."
