ATHENS – OK, I’ll be filing a more comprehensive report on Georgia’s second scrimmage of the spring practice. All or parts of it will be posted on AJC.com and MyAJC.com a little later and, of course, you can read the whole thing in the Sports section of the Sunday newspaper.
But here’s a quick rundown and a couple of videos to watch to get an idea of what happened:
The offense played much, much better than it did last week, particularly running the football.
Quarterback Hutson Mason, tailback Todd Gurley, receiver Jonathan Rumph and kicker Marshall Morgan starred for the offense.
Linebacker Ramik Wilson, defensive end Leonard Floyd, linebacker Reggie Carter and defensive tackle Toby Johnson starred for the defense. The punters punted well, also.
Receiver Michael Bennett did not participate due to an ankle injury. Senior offensive tackle Watts Dantzler missed his fifth practice due to a concussion but should get back on Tuesday and be able to go for G-Day next Saturday.
It was a closed scrimmage as usual, so observations are based on interviews afterward. Here’s the statistics from the scrimmage as provided by UGA’s Sports Communications office:
Gurley 10-67 (1TD)
Mason 12-16-136 yds -1 TD -0 INTs
Ramsey 9-21-1-114-2TDs – 1 INT
Rumph 6-62 TD
R Davis 3-64 TD
Hicks 1-17 TD
One reception each: Gurley, LeMay, Turman, Tibbs
Morgan 4×4 (59, 47, 47, 22)
