Saturday, Aug. 5

After a morning press conference in which head coach Mark Richt previewed fall camp and the 2006 season for the media, the Bulldogs kicked things off that afternoon with their first session since G-Day. Not only was it the first time back on the field for an organized practice, but it was the first time ever for two-dozen freshmen.

Sunday, Aug. 6

The big news from Saturday that starting safety Thomas Flowers would be suspended for the first two games of the season resonated at the Dawgs hit the practice fields for day two. The good news was that the Bulldogs' young players in the secondary were ready to step up.

Monday, Aug. 7

Due to guard Zeb McKinzey hurting his shoulder Sunday action, senior defensive tackle Dale Dixson moved to the offensive line. The move was made easier since the team is loaded with defensive tackles and should be in good shape despite losing Dixson. In other news, Brandon Miller was moved from Sam to Will linebacker.

Twenty-four hours later and Dixson was moved back to the defensive line after not being overly fond of the move. The situation along the offensive line is tenuous as there is not a lot of depth. The bad news of the day was that safety Antavious Coates was lost for the year with a torn ACL.

Wednesday, Aug. 9

The situation in the cornerback continues to improve as young players are stepping up in key positions. Sophomore Ramarcus, who is filling in for the suspended Thomas Flowers at one of the corner spots, looks good as do Bryan Evans, who is backing up Paul Oliver, and freshmen Asher Allen and Prince Miller. Defensive tackle Marquis Elmore is out with a leg injury.

The "Three Headed Monster" is roaring as Kregg Lumpkin looks as impressive as ever. Starting tailback Thomas Brown continues to lead the pack with Danny Ware third behind Lumpkin, and freshman Knowshon Moreno looks for time on special teams.

The Dawgs are back on the practice fields for day two of full pads. Freshman defensive tackle missed practice due to a family emergency and being tied up at the airport, while defensive tackle Marquis Elmore was back on the fields but limited with a left knee injury.

The first scrimmage of fall camp left just as many questions as it sought to answer. The three younger quarterbacks looked a bit better than senior Joe Tereshinski, and of them Blake Barnes did the best job.

Monday, Aug. 21

With the late night announcement of senior Joe Tereshinski as the starting quarterback for the Western Kentucky game many questions still linger. How long will Tereshinski be the starter? When will redshirt freshman Joe Cox or freshman Matthew Stafford move up the depth chart?

He has only been on campus about eight months, but freshman wide receiver Kris Durham's effort in that short time has pretty much solidified his chances of playing this fall.
