First I have to say I am sick of creating threads about our injuries. We have Branden Smith is doubtful due to getting a concussion in practice. Second Bean Anderson is doubtful due to reaggravating his turf toe.

Alec Ogletree was responsible for that tough hit on Branden Smith.

He shoulda let branden borrow his helmet before he hit 'em! Haha Ok no seriously earlier in the week when I read about the more physical pratices I was excited. Maybe some hard hittting spirited practices is what this team need to get in the right mindset. This is an unfortunate circumstance of those physical practices. I'm still excited and want to see them amped up on saturday. Hopefully smith can play. Cause we could use him against mallet.

It's a double edged sword really. Richt decided to go on the light side in pre-season practice. No two-a-days, not much hitting. Sure everyone was healthy, but apparently not ready to tackle.

Now they step up the intensity of practices and players get hurt. It's really tough to have it both ways.

You pretty much have to make a choice as a team which way works but then there is no real answer.

This is why I couldn'tunderstand how Dawg fans could be excited about no two-a-days...

this has nothing to do with no two-a-days. i loved the idea of how they handled the preseason. they really worked on learning the system and it has been successful. these guys are very comfortable with the system. every team does thud. Doing thud helps to avoid injuries and helps you work on fundamentals. You have to wrap up doing thuds.

You're definitely right. From a cerebral standpoint, more daily practices actually allow more time for the knowledge of the system to sink in and it also allows for more study time outside of practice. Shorter, more frequent increments of study are always better than cramming, which is effectively what two-a-days do. On the topic of physicality...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Georgia as a team still does not have physically intense practices (at least up until the Sout Carolina game). With that in mind, wouldn't the lack of practice with full speed tackling hurt Georgia far more than no two-a-days? So long as the practice is physical, it shouldn't matter whether they do practice once or twice a day. Plus, wouldn't two-a-day practices make the team more prone to injuries as there is little rest in between? I'm asking because its been years since I played football (I chose rugby over football in high school).

I really wasn't applying it to this particular incident but to UGA's evident softness or as CMR put it "timid"ness.
