Richt speaks, I type

Not much today in the way of injury updates or anything else revealing. The team just had a walk-through today, in anticipation for a full scrimmage on Wednesday.

And a serious scrimmage it will be.

The coaches will be in game position, the booth or the sidelines. They’ll play at least 30 minutes like a real game, transitioning from defense to special teams and so forth. They’ll go so far as simulate a coin toss.

This will be more about getting ready for the opener than deciding any starting jobs.

“We don’t get preseason games,” head coach Mark Richt said. “This is about as close as we’re gonna get to a preseason game.”

It’ll be simulated to the extent that it’ll be the Georgia players going against the scout team simulating Louisiana-Lafayette. So if “Georgia” wins the toss, it could elect to receive and Aaron Murray and company will go against the scout team. And vice versa.

But they will also interrupt play to simulate some game conditions, like an onside kick.

- The team just had a walk-through on Tuesday. The coaches briefed the scout team on how to line up as Louisiana-Lafayette. They also went over some offensive and defensive assignments, and did some conditioning.

- Asked to name their punt return guys, Richt said AJ Green, Branden Smith and Carlton Thomas, Bacarri Rambo and Logan Gray.

I also talked briefly with Smith about the punt return situation. Basically, it’s very much up in the air right now.

Wanted to say thanks for the great work, and keeping us updated. I love the thought of AJ green gettin his hands on the ball in whatever way possible.
