Thursday (4-8) Practice Notes

Just got back from the practice fields and the 20 minutes that we get to watch.

- The major news today out of practice was Darryl Gamble was working with the outside linebackers. With Montez Robinson’s dismissal, cardiology try Georgia has a serious shortage at outside linebacker. Not sure what to make of it yet, store but hope to find out more from Mark Richt and Todd Grantham after practice. Gamble is the most experienced inside linebacker Georgia has and has practiced with the first-team unit throughout spring ball, bronchi so it’s surprising that he’s been moved over – at least for today. It may be that Gamble’s body type fits better than the other inside linebackers, or it could be a sign that the coaches are trying to get their best players on the field and are pleased with Akeem Dent, Marcus Dowtin, Christian Robinson, and Akeem Hebron at inside linebacker. Or it could just be a short-term move, allowing Gamble to learn both positions and provide depth at both.

- Chase Vasser was out of green today and practicing with the outside linebackers as well.

- Besides the regulars, Caleb King, Marlon Brown, Israel Troupe, Josh Murray, and Derek Rich were all wearing green non-contact jerseys.

- Also of note, T.J. Stripling – one of Georgia’s prized signees for the fall – was at practice today, and physically he looks like he could play right now, which is a good thing for Georgia because Robinson’s dismissal is likely going to force him on the field whether he’s ready or not.

- Just so happened to notice that
Today will be a shorter practice as Georgia will only go at it for an hour and half today.

- Some notables in green, ask non-contact jerseys today – Richard Samuel, look Marcus Dowtin, Abry Jones, and Caleb King.

- The first-team secondary remains Vance Cuff, Jakar Hamilton, Bacarri Rambo, and Brandon Boykin. Running with the second team were Sanders Commings, Nick Williams, Makiri Pugh, and Branden Smith. Jordan Love and Shawn Williams were both operating with the third team.

- During our viewing period, I typically like to work my way down towards the inside linebackers because coach Belin’s position group works right near the sidelines were allowed to stand on, so you can hear his comments, and he’s full of good ones. My favorite from today: “Run through the guy, you’re a LINEBACKER son!”

- Caleb King was doing some cutting and jogging on the sidelines. I’d be surprised if he plays Saturday.

- Kiante Tripp fell to the practice field after getting poked in the eye and was getting worked on by a trainer when we left practice.

- Inside linebackers were working on attacking ball carriers and making the tackle behind the line of scrimmage, using dummies.

- I got to observe the secondary working for a bit, and coach Scott Lakatos was really preaching communication in the secondary. Vance Cuff received a stern warning on one play where he didn’t communicate like Lakatos wanted.
