By now, I presume most of you have heard the news that the AB-H broke last night about the G-Day game:
Georgia’s spring football G-Day game on April 11 is scheduled to be shown nationally on ESPN.
The scrimmage at Sanford Stadium is the only one currently scheduled to air that day on the network, according to ESPN spokesman Mike Humes. The start time has yet to be determined.
I don’t see anything but an upside to this, as I posted last year. Specifically, it’s a nice sales point to use with recruits in the next few weeks.
And just to get you fired up a little more, make sure you read David Hale’s post from yesterday with his football notes. Here are some quotes:
Now, the line figures to have at least 10 potential starters in the mix for jobs next season, and Sturdivant said line coach Stacy Searels has put the onus for Georgia’s success on them.
“Coach Searels has straight up came up and told us that it’s our team now,” Sturdivant said. “We have to make the most impact on the offense because we don’t have a Stafford. We don’t have a Knowshon. We don’t have a Mohamed Massaquoi as the senior leader on our team. We’re going to have to step up and show everybody that we can play, and we are going to will this team to wins.”
On offseason workouts…
“We’re wasting no time,” Evans said. “I think this might be the hardest we’ve ever worked coming out of a December into January. Specifically, the tempo is much faster. Strength and conditioning coaches are hands on. They broke the workout groups down to six people in each position so they can focus more on us.”
On any motivation they take from Florida’s success…
“I feel that the score of 49-10 speaks for itself. Nobody wants to feel that 49-10 again. That’s pretty much what everybody is thinking about 49-10, every time we get in the weight room. If that doesn’t drive you, I don’t know what will.”
