Coach Richt discussed G-Day in the above video from DawgPost.com. The sound quality is a little rough, but you'll get the gist of it.
For my money, the most impressive player was Caleb King. He looked very solid. The stats don't blow you away with 6 carries for 31 yards and 2 catches for 17 yards. However, he showed speed, moves and quickness that inspired a great deal of confidence. Per Rennie Curran:
"It was just like he did in high school, slashing, getting people to miss and getting in the open space," said linebacker Rennie Curran. "He really impressed me with his performance."I'm going to try and watch it on DVR tomorrow, but my initial impression for the game overall was "yawn." There were too many kids banged up to learn much. I liked what I saw from the first team offense in the first half, the linebackers, King and Logan Gray. Beyond that, it was hard to learn much.
In other positive news, Arby Jones committed to play for the Georgia Bulldogs. Jones is one of the nation's elite defensive linemen in the 2009 recruiting class. The AJC, UGASports.com and DawgPost.com all have articles up regarding the commitment.
Separately...Are you're curious as to how the other half lives? Well, Georgia Tech fumbled the ball 14 times during their scrimmage on Saturday. In Tech's defense, their starting QB (Nesbitt) didn't play in the scrimmage. But it wasn't just the QBs. According to Paul Johnson
"I'm going to guess there must have been 60 missed assignments, 70 missed assignments on offense. Clearly, we don't know what we're doing. That's a poor reflection on us as coaches. We haven't done a very good job coaching them if they don't know what they're doing. I'm embarrassed that they don't know what to do."G-Day Articles (updated Sunday evening):
