While I’m not trying to get down to Jeff Schultz’ level (“I believe AJC.com now has a rule that we must have at least a five-inch blog every time somebody burps in Butts-Mehre Hall.”) with this post, I have to admit it’s been kind of hard lately to write anything of depth with regard to Georgia’s spring practice.
That is, unless you consider the insight Coach Martinez shared with the media about Georgia’s first scrimmage deep:
Georgia defensive coordinator Willie Martinez said Georgia’s first scrimmage of the year on Saturday was a “tale of two halves.”
“Both sides were sluggish, that’s a pretty good way of looking at it,” Martinez said after the Bulldogs’ 21/2-hour scrimmage at the Woodruff Practice Fields. “There was some good, there was some bad on both sides of the ball.”
Martinez said the defense “showed a lot of energy, a lot of fight, early on in the scrimmage and as it finished, I thought it fizzled.”
I didn’t think so. Still, there are a few nuggets to be gleaned from the muck if you sniff around and do a little digging.
- Richt is talking up Walter Hill at WR, but downplaying Aron White at TE.
- Israel Troupe mentions that “Bean” Anderson is running with the first team OL.
- Knowshon Moreno is getting a look at punt returner.
- Kade Weston continues to be a big dude.
- And you might enjoy reading mcdawg’s post (second in this thread) at the Online Athens Forum for some more info on spring practice.
