"We're done doing that"

Georgia is changing information flow patterns. Expect the media to be fired up. I don't see the big deal.

Georgia isn't doing daily injury reports during camp.

Asked why that is, Richt said: “Because we don’t want to tell the whole world what’s going on,” he said.
I can live with that. It has been surprising the amount of injury information given out, compared to other teams and the five or so year refusal to discuss suspensions. When you think about it, this policy is a natural extension of the suspension policy.

From an information management standpoint, this is a great idea. Putting aside whatever competitive advantage there might be, a simple comment about he's out right now or avoiding the 'what happened' question allows the coaches and players to stay on message.

From a personal standpoint, I'm ok with it, as it help alleviate my continued descent into Depressive Tyler, since the word is Ramik will play. Knowing if he bruised his knee or tore a labium or whatever wouldn't help a bit. And if he doesn't play, I'll freak about it then.
