”She passed the physical. She was permitted to participate in practice.”

Think of the sleaziest, slimiest, most uncompassionate team doctor from the movies you can… say, James Woods as Dr. Harvey Mandrake in Any Given Sunday.

Dr. Harvey Mandrake: [criticizing the young Dr. Ollie Powers for presuming to examine Jack 'Cap' Rooney] You’re actually one of the few relatives that I can stomach, but – You’re the internist; I’m the orthopedist, remember? Bone, muscle, joint: me; runny nose, diarrhea, gonorrhea, pink eye: you. Got it?

This is worse.

UGA-OSU Steeleoid(s)

Lots of anxiety about this game, but Steele notes a few trends that should give Dawg fans some comfort.

First, about the Cowboys: The Cowboys are just 3-10 in their last 13 road games losing by an average of 19 ppg.

Then, about Georgia: Georgia is 25-2 vs. non-conf opponents under Richt with both losses in bowls. Bulldogs are 6-0 in their opening game under Richt and Georgia has won 10 straight overall.

Practice stories: a tale of two freshmen

Haverkamp is down with a recurring ankle injury, Richt sounds uncertain about his status, Clint Boling moves over to starting right guard… and Bruce Figgins, who’s been out with a leg injury, now has a “high percentage chance of playing” this year. Sorry, but that’s not a coincidence.

And then there’s Vance Cuff, who, in the short space of a couple of weeks, has gone from not being sure he’d even be allowed to attend UGA to this:

“I’d say right now we’re leaning toward playing Vance,” Richt said Monday. “He’s a very good cover guy, he’s tough, he’s very athletic. Sometimes freshmen kinda get in the tank somewhere along the way (in camp). So far he’s competed every day.”

Sure, I don’t doubt that the Remarcus Brown suspension played into his thinking, but still, that’s nothing short of astounding.

And as always, for more practice info than may be good for you, read David Ching’s blog religiously.
