Green update, and other notes

Georgia is hoping A.J. Green’s appeal will be heard Tuesday, which would also be the soonest it would hear a ruling on whether the suspension is lessened.

But head coach Mark Richt isn’t sure of anything.

“If we know anything, I think the earliest we’ll know is Tuesdsay. And we might not know by then.”

Asked what he thought the chances of success were, Richt said he was “hopeful,” but still had “no clue” which way it would go.

In the meantime, Georgia begins its preparation for No. 13 Arkansas still not sure whether it will have Green.

“It’s a pain right now,” Richt said. “It’s kind of tough because even last week we weren’t sure whether or not we had him as we began to plan. So you’re planning for a game with AJ and then you don’t have him.”

Some other quick notes from Richt’s teleconference:

- He didn’t have an update on fullback Shaun Chapas’ ankle injury.

- Tailback Caleb King, who didn’t play Saturday because of an ankle injury, should be fine by the end of the week. (Then again, King was supposed to be fine last week too.)

- Richt wants to get nose tackles Justin Anderson and Kwame Geathers in the game more. Neither was on the participation chart against South Carolina, whose freshman tailback Marcus Lattimore gained 182 yards, much of it up the gut.

- As for the offensive line, Richt felt the tackles and center played well, but the guards struggled.

“We’ve either gotta get better there or make some changes there,” Richt said.

- Trinton Sturdivant was in for three plays on offense.

“He’s feeling his way through still a little bit. I think his playing time will increase every week.”

- Finally, Richt repeated that the Bulldogs should “open it up more” offensively, feeling quarterback Aaron Murray is ready.

Thanks Seth for all you do. Some of the guys on here got spoiled with Hale, and he was fantastic, but at the same time, Ii enjoy your style as well. Keep up the good work.

Coaches were unprepared for Green's absence? Goes back to the conservative play calling. The first issue Richt needs to address is the offensive staff. Fear of letting your QB have the ball is no way to game plan.
