Story and pictures: Georgia opens practice

August 4, 2011 


Here's my main story on Georgia's opening day of practice for the 2011 season. An excerpt:

The sight of Crowell, Mitchell, Jenkins and the other newcomers practicing may have signified a new era for the program, even a re-birth. But when players were brought to meet the media earlier in the day, many of them fielded questions about Richt's future.

"I don't like it, but you can't control what people say," junior tight end Orson Charles said. "I wouldn't want to play for anybody else except Coach Richt and (tight ends coach John) Lilly and (offensive coordinator Mike) Bobo. I don't want nobody (else) at Georgia while I'm here. But I feel we have the talent to bring it back."

Georgia returns to the practice field on Friday at 4:30 p.m.
