    I think we are finally seeing what they mean when they talk about “attention to detail”. You don’t know if you can do it if you don’t ask. They are probably practicing the run through the tunnel etc. getting comfortable with the venue and the feel of the field. Maybe piping in crowd noise and the red coat marching band during practice. I don’t put anything past Kirby at this point. We are seeing change. That is certain.

  3. The idea is to have the team in particular both Eason get used to an indoor atmosphere.

      I’m sure that’s true, but it also sends a little bit of a message to UNC that the Dome is a neutral field in only the most technical sense of the word. The Dome folks might let UNC come down and scrimmage on a Saturday if they asked, but they can’t realistically do it ’cause they ain’t from around here, iykwim.

    “Georgia will practice at the location it will begin its 2016 season at.”

    That’s some fine sportswritin’ there.

      A dangling preposition is a grammar error up with which I shall not put.

        This gibberish occurs when nothing of significance takes place, but there must be 300ish words put on paper to give the happening a hint of grandeur…… I’m just sayin’!

        “….error up with which ….” Yep. Sounds much better than ending the sentence with “with”.

        It all depends on where you put “at” at.

      Henry Grady, a few 70s era UGA Journalism School professors, and probably a couple of 70s era AJC editors, are all spinning like tops in their graves. There once was a time when writing simple declarative sentences with proper grammar and punctuation was a minimum requirement for even a small time paper.

    I’m just guessing but probably the only dome Eason has ever played in would be for the Army game last year. The indoor thing can effect your sense of space and while you don’t have to worry about wind or weather you do have to get used to a flat field. As all of us know outdoor fields are tapered to each side to help drain the water off in rain storms. The flat field can make a QB and his receivers tend to get out of sink especially on passes to the sidelines. Sorry but the Munson in me is just coming out. The Qb’s WR’s and PK’s need to practice for sure. This next week is going to be real slow.

    This might seem trivial, but I absolutely love this move. We still don’t know if CKS will be a huge success or fall flat on his face, but more and more I’m inching things towards the former, if nothing else based on his attention to detail and seemingly being borderline maniacal when it comes to finding an edge that might lead to success.

    The fact that he would have the team do a 3 hour round trip trek simply to practice in the environment that they will be playing in is quite impressive. Quite a difference from not doing a thing, and instead coming up with a cheesy slogan like ‘get on the energy bus’ right before you make the same trek to face a far more prepared Boise team from a few years back.

    Kirby’s just trying to figure out if he will wear his visor or not.

      I got to say – I know this is trivial – but seeing coaches out there in basically athletic wear on gameday always looks like they just rolled off the couch to me. When it is not blazing hot, would love to see CKS out there in a shirt and tie.

      And the visors are the worst, may as well be dunce caps. Just wear the ball cap, please.

        Hey now, us light haired-non balding types tend to prefer the visor. It’s cooler and it shades the eyes. A dark colored ball cap is much hotter in the sun than our hair, it’s a choice made for practical reasons. I just hope he doesn’t wear one inside. If he does it will be due to bright lighting irritating his eyes. All the lights are focused on the field, not the stands.

          Yes, I would be more comfortable going barefoot to an outdoor wedding, too. Still not going to do it. And I am not talking about we wear to be comfortable by the pool – I just like the old school coach look – you are on national TV, don’t wear what you wear to mow the lawn.

    I wonder how much it costs to rent the Georgia Dome. McGarrity is probably not happy, but after the Ludacris fiasco, how’s he gonna say it is an unnecessary expense? This actually makes sense.
