That was an excited Todd Gurley as he got on a team bus Tuesday afternoon. Indeed, it was Ramsey Day.
Each year - or at least almost each year - head coach Mark Richt cancels practice and takes the team to the Ramsey Center, the UGA's swim and aquatic center. Over the next hour or so, players and Richt dive off the big board.
Richt has made it an annual reward for his players, though he skipped it in 2011. Richt surprised the team Tuesday, as they were already out on the practice field in pads when the announcement was made.
Never miss a local story.
"Normally he says something like: 'I don't wanna have a good day, I wanna have a great day,'" freshman linebacker Keyon Brown said. "He said something like that, and everybody was like: 'Great day!' Then (Richt) said: 'No, I wanna go to Ramsey.' And everybody was like, Yeah that's fine too."
Players got to the buses quickly on Tuesday. Freshman quarterback Jacob Park and senior cornerback Damian Swann were the first two on the bus.
Brown said the day at the Ramsey is included in a recruitment video that players see during the recruiting process. But he added that it didn't really figure into his decision.
As for those who say that Georgia cost itself a valuable day of practice, Brown scoffed.
"I feel like we work hard every other day, so I feel like it's well-deserved," Brown said. "It's not like we're not working hard every other day."
