ATHENS, Ga.--The Georgia football team worked out for two hours Thursday afternoon under clear skies with a light breeze at the Woodruff Practice Fields.
"We got better today," said head coach Mark Richt. "We got more used to our new practice routine and got better learning the defenses that Coach Pruitt and the staff put in on Tuesday. We decided to repeat them again today so that we could make sure we had things right before we moved on. It was a good effort by everyone and, of course, it was a beautiful day to be in Athens."
This is just the second practice for Georgia defensive players under a new defensive staff, led by defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.
"We're all playing for our spots," said senior linebacker Ramik Wilson. "Coach Pruitt said that he isn't playing favorites and everyone is starting with a clean slate. It's making everyone better. People are flying around faster and the energy and spirit around the locker room is much better. We are all learning this new system and getting it right."
The Bulldogs will wrap up the week with a practice on Saturday, which is being held in the afternoon due to the University holding a Saturday make-up day for classes cancelled due to winter weather in February.
Georgia will practice 12 more times this spring, in addition to the annual G-Day game April 12 at 1 p.m. at Sanford Stadium.
