Georgia Vs. Kentucky: Bulldogs hard at work during bye week

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Bulldogs used the bye week to simulate game conditions in a full-pads, full-contact practice on Wednesday.

Georgia has an extra week to recover from its blowout loss to South Carolina, as the Dawgs will have a bye before travelling to Kentucky next Saturday evening in Lexington. UGA held a full-pads practice to simulate game conditions on Wednesday, and will then break for the weekend following Thursday's practice. As head coach Mark Richt told the Macon Telegraph, the full-pads simulation was treated like a Spring football game:

"We treated it like spring football; we’ve got a lot to get better at, and we wanted to go live and tackle," Georgia head coach Mark Richt said in a release. "You take a risk when you do that in midseason, but we’re not competing this Saturday so we scrimmaged a bit (Wednesday). It was great competition, and I think the guys enjoyed it.

"We’ll get the game plan in and start perfecting it on Monday, so we can have a good performance against Kentucky."

Despite the loss to South Carolina, Georgia isn't eliminated from the SEC Championship hunt. The Gamecocks will travel to Baton Rogue this week to play LSU, and would need to lose twice to put the Bulldogs back in first place. There's also the issue of the undefeated Florida Gators, who have yet to play either team. The easiest road for UGA would be to win out, defeating Florida, and have the Gators and LSU beat South Carolina.
