Monday Practice Report


Fresh off its first victory of the season, the Georgia football team began preparations for its fourth game of the year with a one-hour practice on Monday.

“I thought practice went well,” coach Mark Richt said. “It was nice and cool. That helps. We got 25 minutes of kicking done and another 25 minutes of corrections. I know on offense we spent time on blitz pickup and a little bit on the running game. We’re just slowly beginning to put the plan in.”

Georgia will travel to Oxford, Mississippi, to take on Ole Miss on Saturday at 12:21 p.m. The game will be televised by the SEC Network.

The Dawgs are 1-2 overall, including an 0-1 mark in the SEC, after rolling past Coastal Carolina 59-0 last Saturday in Athens. Ole Miss is also 1-2 and 0-1 after its 30-7 loss to Vanderbilt last weekend.

“We have a chance to really improve as we go,” Richt said. “After a game when you look at the film, you see there’s mistakes that we made. In some ways, it’s bad that you make mistakes. But it’s also good if you can play well and also make mistakes that you know are correctible. Before you know it, you become a really fine team.”
Richt said the captains for the Ole Miss game will be quarterback Aaron Murray, tight end Orson Charles, defensive end Abry Jones and safety/linebacker Shawn Williams.
