Georgia Vs. Buffalo: Mark Richt And The Bulldogs Are Ready For The Season Opener

The Georgia Bulldogs open their 2012 campaign on Saturday against the Buffalo Bulls in Athens. After grueling fall practices, the players are ready to go and so are the Georgia coaches.

On Monday, Mark Richt spoke at the Touchdown Club of Athens and talked about a number of topics -- including Saturday's matchup -- according to an Athens Banner Herald report.

On the week leading up to the season opener, Richt said:

Having so much time for this makes us crazy. We're tired of practicing. We'd rather play tomorrow night if we could, but we can't, so what we've got to do between now and then is keep our fundamentals up and don't go backwards. But the game plan is in and the guys are repping it every day this week and a couple of days last week, so we'll definitely be ready to play a game by Saturday.

The head coach also showed a lot of respect for the Bulldogs opponent and gave a glimpse into what the gameplan will be against Buffalo:

Well, they play very hard. They're an outstanding team. One thing offensively they have is a running back who is a really tremendous player. He gained over 1,000 yards last year and he's poised to have another great season, so we've got to stop the run first. They've got a brand new quarterback who just won the job recently and we'll see how he holds up if we can stop the run.
