A final note related to my two previous posts:
… Tereshinski says one factor that hasn’t gotten much notice is that because of construction, the team has been moved to a different weight room, and for the previous 18 months had been largely operating out of trailers. They didn’t have much room for equipment: No dip bars, no incline presses, and some other machines.
“Last year’s team was very limited, really because of the facility, of what they could get done,” he said. “So we were very weak in our triceps. We were very weak in our upper chests. So what happens is now that we have our full weight room capacities we’re really going to be able to develop our bodies fully. …
“That did affect this team. Because Georgia did not have anything that it was used to having. Now we have an unbelievable weight room, and we have everything we need.”
You can’t really blame that on the coaching staff. In fact, I wonder how strenuously Richt objected to the timetable when it was presented to him by (I presume) Evans. In the SEC these days, eighteen months of subpar training is pretty much a ticket to mediocrity… which, when you consider, is where the Georgia program has been the last two seasons.
