Richt sees Ogletree brothers and Owens playing this year; Gray out 7-10 days

This from AJC correspondent Andy Johnston in Athens:

Georgia coach Mark Richt said freshmen Alec (safety) and Alexander (fullback)  Ogletree and Derek Owens (cornerback) most likely will play this year, but wouldn’t comment on who will redshirt.

“We’re still determining that,” Richt said. “You go one, two, three, four games into the season, and you might be thinking you’re going to redshirt a guy and then he doesn’t redshirt.”

Richt said the Ogletrees and Owens might spend most of their playing time this season on special teams.


Receiver Logan Gray, who sprained his ankle at the end of Tuesday’s practice, could be out anywhere from 7-10 days, Richt said.

“It’s a shame,” Richt said. “Logan has been practicing so well, and had his best practice [Tuesday], and then he ends up spraining his ankle right at the very end. Seems to be the way it goes, though.”


More notes from today’s practice to come on

wish we had more d-line depth.

August 19th, 2010
7:48 pm Both of the Ogletree brothers will have an impact but Alec will have the rest of the SEC receivers afraid to run a pass pattern across the middle. Our defense is ready to make their return to glory. Let us know how you are using your UGA classic tin lunchbox. Whats in your lunchbox. Go Dawgs!!!

Shame about Logan, but if he is out 10 days that still has him back the week of the first game….so hopefully take it easy and get ready for weeks 2 and 3….and the rest of the season.

this UGA fan has always had faith in LG. a lot of dawg fans(mostly the morons) talked a lot of trash about the kid. truth is the kid loves UGA more than they do and thats why he stayed. expect LG to make some plays this year in the slot. GO DAWGS!!! AND THE HELL WITH TECH!!! They don’t deserve to have Georgia in their name.

If we are not going to put the red shirt on Alec, please Richt, use him in a safety position enough to not waste the year. From what I have seen of the kid, he is going o be special. Don’t just let him block on kickoff coverage and sit the sidelines the rest of the game.

Experience is what we need, and by limiting these types of players, they are gaining nothing. I wish to god we would have lifted Aaron Murray’s red shirt after the UF game last year. We would have a MUCH better idea of what we are about to get into here. Especially with LeMay coming in next year, it wouldn’t have hurt to have Murray as a sophomore now instead of a Freshman.

Please quit being so conservative Richt, and unleash the hounds!!!!!!

I saw a blog today that said all the haters love to come to the UGA blog. Are your blogs that boring? I have not taken the time to go to a spech article so I don’t know. Waste of my time. Can you explain why gayterds, vols, and the spechs come to this page? It is an UGA article.

Gray wouldn’t play anyway. He’s grotesquely overrated.

Give him a pair of red panties to suck on (ala Jerry Tarkanian), and he’ll be okay sitting on the sidelines.

I usually read both the Georgia and Tech blogs and don’t post on them. I like to follow both teams. But I had to respond to you. Go over to the Tech story and read all the Georgia fans blogging there and saying negative things about Tech….and you wonder why they come on here doing the same thing? Come on…man!

UGA folks can brag all you want to about beating Tech in football most years, and that’s perfectly fair. What’s also fair is to point out that with a history of Jan Kemp (Vince Dooley days), Jim Harrick, and now Damon Evans, the UGA Athletic Department is truly The Cesspool of the South, and is richly deserving of that title. No one outside of Georgia has any respect for your University or your Athletic Department, and that is a fact. It has been said many times: “Tech people are proud of their school, Georgia people are proud of their team.” What a legacy to be proud of!

UGA fans can now return to your mobile home parks and resume waiting for your unemployment checks.

And watching those red panties falling from the sky, always a good time-killer for thUGA morons.  :-)  :-)  :-)

GT baby need professional help. There are plenty of good doctors that come out of the UGA medical school that could perform a lobotomy on him. They would probably do it for free considering all of the pain he’s in.

How many gt football games were recently vacated due to Academic fraud?

The Jan Kemp scandal was around 30 years ago.

To talk a little football. Does it not seem the Tennessee thing, where they are talking about buying out the NC game, is very similar to the Auburn buy out of Florida State when Tuberville was first named head coach?

It took the Auburn program years to get past that debacle. I was close to some long time scholarship donors and they really took it bad for a lot of years.

Seems to be the way it goes

I can tell you this if the Gray can make a difference at WR under Saban and Meyer he would play

But I guess we will here the same oh he doesnt know the plays or he didnt get enough time to practice

And the Ogletree boys would be playing under Saban and Meyer if they can play too but Im sure special teams is good enough, they just dont know the plays

How you doing Marlon Brown you know the play book yet, Im mean I know you can catch but you know that play book yet

The best and worst of the last few days. “Bean” Anderson is being highly touted by Grantham as a NT, allowing Tyson to play DE some. Geathers was also said to be coming along. That is huge for UGA, we need to be strong up the middle and Anderson is certainly capable. Logan Gray out for 7-10 days. Logan needs to be getting some PT and continue improving his skills. He will be a difference maker for us along with Marlon Brown.

Why is Logan Gray taking such a beating in here. The Missouri native is more loyal to the Dawgs than some Dawg fans I know.

Bakatcha, You crack me up man. Those comments directed at UGA from GT? From the school that forced a school to play when they had disbanded their football program and ran up the score against an intramural squad from Cumberland (Tech was mad about getting spanked in a baseball game between the same two schools that featured “bonafide” teams from each school) — that’s real sportsmanship and something to be real proud of. Also, isn’t Tech the school that threw fish on to the field when playing Notre Dame — real class there. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is absolutely no one has any respect for Georgia Tech Athletics for one reason alone — Georgia Tech has only one NCAA team championship in it’s entire history. For a school of it’s size, age, tradition — that has got to be the most abysmal record in all of Division I sports history.

Glory, Glory……….Fret-not my BULLDOG friend, coach Richt will use Zander and Alec as high motor “bulletts” on special teams, but that is an area that needs improvement ! I will assure you though, Alec will get his pt, and have lots of chances to blow-up a WR or two, and God help the QB we are playing when coach Todd Grantham calls Alec’s number on a safety blitz ! just a couple weeks to go till we kick-off…..GO DOGS !!!!!
