Although I recognize the wisdom in this lede and know that Richt plans on keeping things so bland that vanilla would actually be exciting by comparison, I’m looking forward to getting in the car and heading up to Athens today.
I’m not sure that Seth Emerson means exactly what it sounds like when he writes that the way today’s teams were selected “may have been another sign that this spring wasn’t quite as intense as others have been for the Bulldogs”, at least not going by the significant number of walking wounded among the Dawgs. I suspect that what he’s getting at there is that this spring was less dramatic than prior ones and I think there’s some truth to that (although maybe Mason can shine enough today to generate a quarterback controversy for the moronic part of the fan base).
The real action is likely to come in August, when health is better and the Dream Team class shows up to fight for spots on the two deep.
Still, there are a few things I’ll keep an eye on today: indications that the new S&C regime is improving overall stamina; Kwame Geathers’ progress; Alec Ogletree’s comfort level at linebacker; whether any receiver is ready to step up behind Tavarres King as a contributor.
