The Georgia Bulldogs had a scrimmage Wednesday night that was a dress rehearsal for the Clemson game. The scrimmage kicked off at 8 p.m., the captains came out for the coin toss before the session, and the team played two full quarters.
“It was a barn burner,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said. “We got done what we wanted. We had a lot of live kicking situations, and overall I thought everyone did a pretty good job including our graduate assistants preparing the scout team.”
Coach Richt was impressed with his freshman cornerbacks on Wednesday night. Brendan Langley and Shaq Wiggins each made an interception and Wiggins took his to the house.
“Those guys are getting reps and making plays,” Richt said when asked about the freshmen defensive backs. “They have good ball skills and good hands.”
Coach Richt also named his captains for the season opener at Clemson. They will be four seniors in quarterback Aaron Murray, tight end Arthur Lynch, free safety Connor Norman and defensive end Garr...

The best news for Clemson fans came from Athens, UGA on Tuesday, when it emerged that the entire Georgia secondary is nursing injuries at the moment, per a report from the Macon Telegraph, quoting Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt.

ATHENS - Mark Richt weighs in on Georgia's third scrimmage leading up to the team's season-opener.
Some people blame the play on Aaron Murray. Some blame it on Mark Richt. Some people just blame it on God. Because God, that loss in the SEC Championship Game stung Georgia fans so much more than losing to Georgia Tech, because this could have been the time when the Dawgs talked about being a National Championship team (we think they would have beaten Notre Dame as easily as Alabama...
Garrison Smith and Jordan Jenkins say that nobody is irreplaceable on Georgia's defense.
Jenkins is confident the Bulldogs will overcome the loss of first-round draft picks like Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree and five other defenders who left for the NFL in April.
Their voids are being filled by less established players.
''That's definitely going to be a lot of...

Two names will be missing from Georgia’s receiving corps this upcoming season. With Tavarres King and Marlon Brown now playing in the NFL, most teams would be worried as to how to fill the gap left by such productive receivers. King, now with the Broncos, finished his career at Georgia with 21 receiving touchdowns and...
The Georgia Bulldogs held their final scrimmage last night and there were a few points worth noting here: 1. Aaron Murray is fine. After a three interception performance, which made some fans wonder if Murray was truly prepared for his…Read more →
Aaron Murray certainly has many Georgia and SEC statistical accomplishments. In three years as the Bulldogs' starting quarterback, he's thrown for over 10,000 yards passing, 95 TDs, and a 158.5 passer rating. Besides some stats, there's much more Aaron Murray needs to do in 2013.#1 A Title: When the media talks about his numbers, you can see it in his eyes. A national...
It’s been a long time since Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Michael Bennett caught an in-season pass, but after spending almost a year rehabbing a torn ACL, he’s ready to pick up where he left off and, hopefully, make an impact…Read more →
ATHENS – As if Georgia’s beat-up secondary didn’t have enough guys spending time in the training room, junior cornerback Damian Swann became the latest to join the injury list.
I made a joke to on my Facebook page the other day—an unoriginal one mind you—in regards to Sports Illustrated’s (SI) decision to leave the Georgia Bulldogs out of their Top 10; it went something like, “I don’t always read…Read more →
ATHENS - Kolton Houston might not crack Georgia’s starting lineup right away, but it’s clear that the plan is for the offensive lineman to get a significant amount of snaps in his first college game Aug. 31 at Clemson.
ATHENS - The fifth-ranked Georgia Bulldogs practiced at Sanford Stadium Thursday for the second straight day.
Kentucky head football coach Mark Stoops had a nice surprise for his players today – the entire team was given iPads. We’ve seen college athletes utilize these before – for example, the Georgia Bulldogs use them to view their playbook.
We’re not sure if Kentucky will follow in UGA’s footsteps, but it wouldn’t be a surprise. Here’s a photo right after the team was gifted...
