ATHENS — Georgia offensive coordinator Jim Chaney isn’t usually the loudest and angriest coach at practice. But he was on Tuesday.
Chaney didn’t like the way scout-teamers were lining up for a drill during the media viewing period. The scout-team was supposed to give defensive backs a look, and Chaney yelled furiously at them to get in the right spot.
A few minutes later, when the drill was over, Chaney was still unhappy.
“Waste of (word edited out) time,” Chaney shouted. “Waste of (word edited out) time.”
Oh, and so what about the non-scout teamers? A few more notes and observations from the viewing period:
- Jake Fromm was indeed going first during a play polish drill, when the quarterbacks were handing off to tailbacks. Jacob Eason was going second, and Brice Ramsey was going third. That’s not outright confirmation that Fromm will start a fifth straight game on Saturday, but it probably would have been a surprise if Eason was first. (This report would have led with it, for instance, and Derek Mason fully expects Fromm to start, as the Vanderbilt coach elucidated earlier in the day.)
- Outside linebacker Davin Bellamy is practicing with his left hand heavily wrapped like a club. Bellamy hurt the hand during Saturday’s win at Tennessee but returned with it clubbed up.
- Receiver Michael Chigbu is practicing. He did not make the trip to Tennessee.
- Solomon Kindley was again working at first-team right guard. The redshirt freshman, who was slowed by an ankle injury last week, didn’t start the Tennessee game but got most of the snaps there. Dyshon Sims started the game at right guard.
- Guard Netori Johnson continues to sit out practice and work on an exercise bike, indicating some sort of malady. Johnson, a freshman, hasn’t played this year and looks headed for a redshirt.
Georgia plays at Vanderbilt at noon on Saturday.
