Random, tasty G-Day bits

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.”

Yeah, man.

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.

    I just realized that we’re back to playing this on Master’s Weekend.. I thought McGarity was avoiding that weekend. Wonder what changed of they just figured it didn’t produce a bump in attendance so why work around it?

    Personally, the battle in the trenches should be good. That will tell you what you need to know (hopefully). Would like to see Faton have a good scrimmage. Pulling for him. Also want to see secondary show any sign of life. Granted it might not mean much, but it would give me false hope (which is more than I currently have).

    I like CMR coaching up his quarterbacks. Brice appears to be listening. Jeff George had a cannon for an arm. One of his balls was clocked at 80mph. He just wasn’t coachable.

    I’m unable to find any TV listings for the game. Does anyone know if it will be on TV?

      I can’t speak for local TV because I live in Ohio, but I know it’s going to air on ESPN3. That’s how I’ll be watching it.

    Gravidy- I think CSS and ESPN 3. You can get the “Watch ESPN” app free on your phone and strean to a apple TV if all is lost with your cable. I have ATT Uverse so I have to do the stream option.

    Looks like the wifi is getting an upgrade at sanford this off season as well.

    I can’t wait to twitter, faceplace, and instapic at the games this fall.

    I might also throw in my ear buds and listen to some rap music during timeouts…

    Can we just have no injuries in the receiver cadre, please, can we?
