Georgia’s coaching staff was on the team’s tail today during the media period. Coaches were in full voice yelling at the team. the staff began practice with blaring crowd noise to get ready for Saturday’s game. One thing’s for sure, Georgia will be focused and ready for the Gamecocks. 

Savannah’s Offensive Report

Quick Injury Report

  • Still no Jackson Harris at practice

— Terry Godwin, Kearis Jackson and Jayson Stanley all practiced without limitations.
— Dell McGee had his running backs work on some blocking along with catching passes out of the backfield.
— Jake Fromm and company worked on some fundamentals while we were out there. When we first got out there, they were in 7v7 and he made a nice pass to Riley Ridley.
— Spent a good time watching the tight ends today and I must say that coach Jim Chaney is extremely hard on this group. He yelled, “Every dang day we do this same crap. Get lined up!!! Let’s go to work guys! DO NO WAST A REP!!!”

Isaac Nauta (18)

— The group went to a blocking drill where Chaney told them, “I better hear that pad slap from over here!” Isaac Nauta then slapped the bag and almost knocked down Luke Ford. Then Ford proceeds to do the same to Nauta. Those two guys are impressive to watch. They both look huge and were the best during the drill. Chaney gave John Fitzpatrick a lot of tidbits about where to place his hands.

— Sam Pittman’s offensive line worked on some fundamentals while the media watched. I will say Trey Hill impressed me today. He made nice contact during the drills and looks to be getting in better shape. Lamont Gaillard pointed and moved guys and showed his leadership. The guys around him listened and seem to respect him a lot.

Steve’s Defense Report

Adam Anderson (56)
Adam Anderson (56)
— Adam Anderson had one of the best practices I’ve seen out of him. He looks strong and appears to be gaining confidence by the day.
— The second we got out there the speakers were blasting artificial crowd noise while the offense and defense scrimmaged. I literally only saw one snap of this and it was a pass deflection by David Marshall against Justin Fields. Right after the horn blew and the team rotated to different drills, but Kirby yelled out, “Composure! Composure! Composure!”
— Tyrique McGhee was full go in today’s practice. No brace on his foot that was injured.

— Divaad Wilson was in the IPF still recovering from his knee injury. I’m still not exactly sure when he will return.
— Chris Smith was also in the IPF working alongside Divaad Wilson.
— The intensity was high today and you saw that from every defensive coach.
— Mel Tucker had a good quote today, “Control your guy! Use those hands and strike!” He knows how important it is to have this group ready going into Columbia. Jake Bentley and the South Carolina receivers are going to be hard to handle for this young but talented secondary.
