ATHENS — The Georgia Bulldogs returned to Woodruff Practice Fields on Wednesday after having Tuesday off. The team had a physical, full-contact practice as they concentrated fundamentals during the off week before the Florida game.
“We got some really good work in today,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said. “I expect us to have the same results on Thursday. The practice set-up will be about the same. We’ve got a couple of more different situations to cover. We’re working hard on getting better fundamentally and we’re working hard on simply getting better as a football team. That’s what we’ve got to do every day.”
Richt said the captains for the Florida game will be tailback Sony Michel, linebackers Leonard Floyd and Ryne Rankin, and defensive lineman Sterling Bailey.
Here are five things to know:
- Georgia still confident in run game. Despite not having a 100-yard rusher for the first time in 14 games against Missouri this past Saturday, the Bulldogs insist there’s nothing wrong with their run game.
- Batman Forever for Malcolm Mitchell. Turns out that Georgia’s star wide receiver is an ardent Batman fan, as the tattoos of the superhero — and his nemesis The Joker — on his arms will attest.
- Mitchell responds to call complaints. Mitchell was in the middle of two of the biggest officiating decisions in the Missouri game, causing a game-turning fumble as the gunner on punt coverage and drawing an interference call on the game-winning drive. He shares his thoughts.
- Surgery soon for Nick Chubb. The Bulldogs’ star tailback is expected to undergo surgery for his knee injury “within the next week,” Richt said. Other injury updates included.
- Chip & Seth Show. The Bulldogs actually aren’t that far off as they reach the bye weekend. We discuss.
