Oklahoma St. Week: Tuesday Practice Report

Posted Aug 28, 2007

ATHENS - The No. 13-ranked Georgia Bulldogs worked out in shoulder pads and shorts for slightly more than two hours on Tuesday afternoon in Athens as they continue to prepare for this Saturday's season opener against Oklahoma State.

"It was our last day in pads with any kind of contact until Saturday," head coach Mark Richt said. "It was hot out there, but I thought they held up. Overall, the concentration was good. We're not where we need to be just yet, but we are getting there,"

Earlier in the afternoon, Richt visited with the media at length regarding Saturday's match-up during his weekly press conference.

³I¹m excited to start the season; it won¹t be long now," Richt said. "We all know we are playing a great team. There is a lot of buzz around Oklahoma State for a lot of reasons, number one being that their offense has been so tremendous over the last season. They are well-coached. They have a lot of momentum going right now. They finished strong last year and improved their record from the year before and now they are looking to make a splash nationally. I think a lot of people look at them as a possible darkhorse to win their league.²

Richt also announced that the Bulldogs will arrive at the stadium for the Dog Walk at 5:05 p.m. and that a quartet of seniors will serve as team captains against Oklahoma State: Fernando Velasco and Thomas Brown on offense, Brandon Miller on defense and Kelin Johnson on special teams.
