    Georgia Practice Facilities or Lack of

    I watched a short Georgia practice video yesterday and they were practicing outdoors on what looked a lot like my old high school practice field.

    This morning I read an article with this info; … Georgia practiced in misty conditions. “I really liked the effort and I really liked the attitude, but I didn’t like the conditions because I know they’re going to be different when we play on Saturday,” Richt said. “It is what it is, though. We made the best of it.”

    First off I can't believe a self styled "elite" program skimps on their facilities and secondly I wonder if that gives us an advantage.

    I have to admit I'm shocked to hear this but I wouldn't count a team out because they practiced on a "dog-track". Heads down and get to work Bama!!! ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!

    UGA has been one of the most "cheapskate" programs ever. I remember when Hugh Durham replaced John Guthrie as HBBC in 1979, it was reported that Guthrie's salary was 12K per year.

    If I remember correctly, their "indoor" facility is something like 20 yds long.

    They have a history of not paying coordinators well.

    The school may not be the coordinators well, but Mark Richt pays his coordinators better than any other coach in the nation.
