… you know it’s time for that great Georgia tradition, preseason happy talk.
John Theus has noticed a positive change in the strength and conditioning program over the past seven months since Mark Hocke took over this past winter.
Hocke arrived from Alabama after spending the past six seasons as a strength and conditioning assistant. Now that Hocke is running the show at Georgia, Theus said his position group has already seen some encouraging results.
“The linemen are leaner,” Theus said. “They’re doing a great job, along with the nutritionists, of giving us the ability to play with high energy. They’re pushing us every day to be the best that we can be. I think a lot of the linemen have also taken the initiative to better their bodies as well. We have all gained muscle mass.”
I will say we haven’t paid much attention to the S&C transition from Joe T to Hocke. It probably deserves more than that. (Although I thought the team’s conditioning last season appeared improved from years past.)
