*injured player

I’m not sure why Owens isn’t listed as injured, but we know he won’t play. [Note: injuries are correctly noted on the PDF version of the rosters.]

And the Red team gets Moreno, King and Samuel? Looks like Dontavious Jackson will be getting a lot of work tomorrow.

By the way, purely as a point of amusement, check out Molloy VanGorder’s “hometown” on the PDF version of the roster. That’s a few stops ago, isn’t it? Of course, the housing market has been a bit slow of late, so maybe BVG still owns down there.

My two cents on G-Day

There’s plenty of stuff already out there on what people are hoping to see tomorrow at the glorified scrimmage.

David Ching led off with this post. Chip Towers added his thoughts here. (Did he really ask his commenters “You want to see everybody come out injury free?” Can’t wait to see if somebody wants to see bones projecting out of skin.) And there’s more posted at Georgia Sports Blog on the subject.

So let me add a couple of thoughts to the mix. First, it’s hard to get too hyped up for the game. The rules are truncated, the stats are meaningless and you don’t have the full contingent of players that will start the season available. And it’s usually silly to read very much into the results – as Ching reminds us, last year G-Day saw a pretty ineffective defense on the field, but those guys wound up looking OK.

I’ll be looking for athleticism and playmaking skills out of guys that haven’t had much of an opportunity to show us what they can do yet. A few examples:

  • Caleb King. Just because he’s the most obvious point of attention in the spring doesn’t mean it won’t be interesting to watch.
  • Kiante Tripp. An offensive tackle that never started an SEC game before? Hey, it worked last year.
  • A. J. Green’s slot. Massaquoi, Wilson and Harris won’t play. Henderson and Bailey graduated. Which leaves us with a cast of thousands. Is anybody ready to step up and take a place on the two deep, or are they just serving as markers until Green shows up?
  • Logan Gray. We know what Stafford has to do to step up to becoming an elite QB. We know what Joe Cox brings to the table. I want to measure Gray’s arm and foot speed against SEC-caliber competition.

Beer, fried chicken and football. Even a little rain can’t screw that combination up too badly. But if it helps, Chip, I hope that nobody gets struck by lightning tomorrow.

All is forgiven.

Fear not, ladies and gentlemen. Ryan Perrilloux is back in the good graces of Coach Miles and will be reinstated to the team, after the spring game.

The good news for Perrilloux is that he gets to meet George Bush.

This quote really tells you all you need to know at this point:

“We are not ready to rely upon anybody at the quarterback spot,” Miles said. “We have three guys there. There will be a competition. Perrilloux has to compete.”

No word on whether Perrilloux went out and celebrated upon learning the news…
