Tennessee Week: Tuesday Practice Report

Posted Oct 7, 2008

ATHENS - Head coach Mark Richt was pleased with his 10th-ranked Bulldogs' two-hour practice in full pads on Tuesday afternoon in Athens. While Tuesday is traditionally a full pads session for Georgia, this week's workout wasn't originally planned as such.

Since Georgia enjoyed an open date last Saturday, preparations for this week's matchup with Tennessee were moved ahead a day. Monday's practice followed Tuesday's regular routine. Tuesday's session was slated to be conducted in shoulder pads and shorts as a regular Wednesday practice before Richt decided to alter that plan.

"I just really didn't like the way we practiced yesterday," Richt said. "I wanted to see if we could do a better job today, and we were much better today."

Earlier in the afternoon, Richt conducted his weekly press session to discuss this Saturday's game with the Vols.

³We get a chance to play an outstanding football team," Richt said. "I know they are 2-3 right now, but if you look at their season, they have an overtime loss they certainly could have won just as easily as they lost it. They lose 14-12 to Auburn and they are basically one exchange away, handing off the ball to the tailback away from winning that game. They very easily could be 4-1 and could be a top-15, top-10 team right now. They are that good, they are that capable, and I just want to make sure everybody understands how good of a football team this is."
