First off, Richt tells us the game format on Saturday will be the same as what we saw last year.
The annual G-Day spring intra-squad game will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday in Sanford Stadium. After Tuesday’s practice, Richt outlined the parameters for the game:
The Red team will consist of the No. 1 offense and the No. 2 defense, while the Black team will have the No. 1 defense and the No. 2 offense. Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo will coach the Red team, and defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt will coach the Black team.
The game will consist of four 12-minute quarters.
“We’ll try to get everybody some reps,” Richt said. “Some guys may start on one side and switch jerseys in the second half.”
The kicking games will work this way, he said: “We will not kick off; we’ll set the ball on the 25 to start drives. Every punt will result in a 35-yard change of field position. If a punt would land inside the 10, then we’ll just bring it out to the 20. We will kick extra points and field goals, but (the defense) will not rush them.”
Also, Chris Conley gets what we’re doing there.
“We approach it just like it’s a game. We don’t really approach it like a practice,” Conley said. “There are people in the stands, you want to show out.”
One thing I want to see showing out is Brice Ramsey’s arm strength.
Bobo has told Ramsey that he has the strongest arm since Matthew Stafford.
“He’s told me that I’ve got a good arm, and it’s about the strongest one he’s seen since Stafford,” Ramsey said. “But he tells me every day that a strong arm’s nothing without the mental aspect of football.”
I was looking forward to seeing Ramsey’s high school teammate, J.J. Green, doing a little hitting on Saturday, but he showed up at the last practice hobbling with an ankle injury. Is he out Saturday? Richt thinks Green will play.
Anyone got something else to add? Have at it in the comments.
