ATHENS — It’s a bye week for the Georgia Bulldogs, but that doesn’t mean they’re off of work.
The Bulldogs (5-2, 3-2 SEC) return to practice this afternoon on the Woodruff Practice Fields after taking the day off Tuesday. But they were on the field Monday to review mistakes made in the 9-6 win over Missouri this past Saturday. And coach Mark Richt said they can expect tough, physical workouts Wednesday and Thursday — “a mini-spring practice,” he said — as they begin preparations for the Oct. 31 clash with Florida (6-1, 4-1 SEC) in Jacksonville.
After an early-morning physical conditioning assignment on Friday, Richt will dismiss the Georgia players for the weekend with the orders to rest and relax — and behave.
As usual, DawgNation will provide comprehensive coverage of the Bulldogs’ practices and we’ll post “The Chip & Seth Show” later this afternoon. In the meantime ….
Here are four things to know:
- John Theus had a ‘rough’ game against Missouri. The senior offensive tackle, who otherwise has been having a great senior will tell you that himself. He’ll also tell you what he plans to do about it.
- There are numerous bowl projections out. It may be way too early to discuss such things but, for what it’s worth, the general outlook for the Bulldogs is not overly optimistic.
- Guess what? Basketball season is upon us. And, for once, there are actually high expectations for the men’s team, which is coming off back-to-back, 20-win seasons.
- Charles Mann is back to lead the Bulldogs. Not only does senior point guard aim to make more free throws this year, he plans to make more lay-ups as well.
