Georgia Holds Morning Practice

From UGA Athletics...

University of Georgia head football coach Mark Richt put his team through a one hour, 40 minute Thanksgiving morning workout Thursday as preparations continued for Saturday's annual game with Georgia Tech in Athens.

We followed our normal schedule for a Thursday putting some finishing touches on our preparations, said Richt.

Georgia (9-2) enters the contest with an opportunity to record its sixth ten-win season in Richt s eight years with the Bulldogs. Meanwhile, Tech (8-3) can improve it s bowl possibilities while still being in the hunt for a berth in the ACC championship game.

"This game is about the rivalry, said Richt. It s one of the oldest rivalries in the country. It's for the championship of the State of Georgia which is motivation enough. Georgia Tech played a terrific game against Miami last week and we expect them to give us nothing but their best on Saturday.

Richt also said that redshirt sophomore reserve center Kevin Perez will be suspended for two games as a result of an early Thursday morning DUI charge in Athens. His actions were not acceptable standards of behavior and he ll pay a price for his poor judgment, said Richt.

Georgia players who live close by were given the opportunity to be with family for the Thanksgiving afternoon meal and many will bring along teammates as guests for the day.

"It is a day to be thankful and I want to wish everyone in the Bulldog Nation a very happy Thanksgiving, said Richt.

Georgia will resume preparations Friday morning. Kickoff is set for 12:10 p.m. EST and will be televised nationally by CBS.

Are you kidding me? Another DUI?

I'd like to see him start kicking people off the team for DUIs.

There is no excuse for putting people's lives at risk like that. DUI should be an automatic team expulsion.
