Durham, starting changes, and other pregame stuff

Receiver Kris Durham didn't participate in receiver drills. The team's leading receiver this season is in uniform, but he had his helmet off and stood to the side while his compatriots caught passes.

I don't know if that definitely means Durham, dealing with a neck stinger, is a no-go for the game. They might just be trying to stay careful, but it can't be a good sign that he's not going through warmups.

While the Bulldogs would obviously rather have Durham out there, they do have that A.J. Green fellow.

Meanwhile, there could be a few other starting changes, judging by pregame warmups:

Carlton Thomas was getting snaps with the first team at tailback. Chris Davis was getting work at right guard.

Defensively, watch out for Nick Williams. The junior safety was stretching with the first-teamers. The question is, would Williams start at safety or linebacker? (Probably safety, but with him you never know.)

Another note: The end of the Tennessee-LSU game - both endings - were watched with rapt attention on this side of the press box. Not only reporters, but Georgia officials, including Greg McGarity.

LSU head coach Les Miles was an assistant at Colorado in the early 1980s, so a few local reporters were also interested in the end-of-game mismanagement.

So I gotta wonder, does this demoralize Tennessee in advance of next week's game? Or the opposite?
