Stats and more from Georgia ‘practice game’

ATHENS — “Georgia” beat “Louisiana-Lafayette” 38-24 in a practice game Wednesday in Sanford Stadium. Or was that 38-0?

UGA coach Mark Richt said he spotted the “Louisiana-Lafayette” team –- Georgia scout teamers impersonating the season-opening opponent — 21 points. And he gave the “Ragin’ Cajuns” another three points by counting a missed field goal as made.

Got that?

The teams played one half of football, with coaches trying to emulate game conditions as much as possible.

That included having the assistant coaches working from where they’ll be in real games -– Todd Grantham, Rodney Garner, Mike Bobo, Stacy Searels and Bryan McClendon at field level; Warren Belin, Scott Lakatos, Tony Ball and John Lilly upstairs in the coaches’ box.

The scrimmage was closed to the public and media, but Richt provided what he called “unofficial official” statistics afterward:

  • Quarterback Aaron Murray completed 9 of 17 passes for 127 yards and one touchdown. He threw no interceptions. “He’s still learning,” Richt said. “It wasn’t real bad, but there were a couple of times he could have made a better decision.”
  • Freshman QB Hutson Mason completed 5 of 10 passes for 69 yards.
  • Caleb King had five carries for 36 yards and Washaun Ealey four for 31.
  • Wide receiver Kris Durham had three catches for 78 yards and A.J. Green four catches for 40.
  • Branden Smith had a punt return of 63 yards and a kickoff return of 31.
  • Defensively, Darryl Gamble had eight tackles and Vance Cuff six.

Before the scrimmage, coaches named captains for the opening game. They are Shawn Chapas for the offense, Demarcus Dobbs and Cuff for the defense and Fred Munzenmaier for special teams.

Here are the statistics UGA provided (and remember, they’re “unofficial official,” meaning they’re incomplete and won’t add up in all cases):

I think Mason needs to play this year, forget the red shirt. He might be needed later in the year. Keep Gray at WR. He’s shown he’s not good enough at QB. For those who say that Mason needs to RS to save a year, it won’t matter since LeMay will be a Jr by then, and who knows how many other 4 or 5 star QBs will be on campus by then. If Mason plays well enough to be the backup, then get him spot duty throughout the season.

Not worried about accuracy for the QB’s. 50% is good enough, just don’t throw no interceptions. Good job Mason & Murray, keep up the good work!

I am really nervous, but extremely excited about the Dawgs this season. Hope Murray can play well, he scares me to death (a freshmen leading the O is not a great thing). Thin at D-line is also another huge concern for me.

I am most impressed with Aaron Murray. He’s doing what he needs to do to earn the trust of his teammates. Protecting the football, making good decisions. It’s gonna be a great year if he can just protect the football.

Bet ya’ he doesn’t throw 6 picks this year.

This is in a green non-contact jersey

And we are debating on whether to play Matson or not

If we think we are just going to tote the rock against Arkansas and get a victory your sadly mistaken

I would suggest playing both QB’s until one proves they are the true number one

Can’t be too excited about Murray yet given some of the quotes from Richt and stats. LIke someone else said, these stats are against the 3rd string…What’s he going to do in Columbia against a good D? That being said, still excited for season and go Dawgs

Rambo had a pick return TD, Jakar had an INT, and Marlon Brown returned a PB for a TD. Defense forced 2 TO’s, PB team blocked another and returned for TD, Special teams were great today. Branden Smith had 2 big returns on kicking team.

Keep in mind 5 or 6 OL were kept out today, to make sure they’ll be healthy for game 1. So Murray, King, Ealey, and Mason’s stats could have been much higher, considering that, not bad.

How do you score 38 points with 1 td pass, and two returns total 21. What accounted for the other 17?

It’s good to see Murray taking care of the football, but I’m surprised that his passing efficiency against the scout team D isn’t any higher—wonder if it’s dropped passes, poor passes, or low percentage attempts—hope it’s the third. Great to hear that AJ, Durham, Ealey, and King took care of business. Still curious why we’re not seeing any meaningful scrimmage stats for Marlon Brown. It’s great to hear that the coaches feel like he’s improved a lot, but why hasn’t that shown itself with receptions in the scrimmages? Good to see the D playing well and forcing some turnovers as well. While there are still a lot of questions, I think Georgia is very underrated and positioned for a great year…should be 7-1 going into Jacksonville. Can’t wait till the 4th! Go Dawgs!

Frank Lane: The stats, as CMR noted, are very unofficial. And they don’t always add up. For example, there were more pass completions than receptions.

every scrimmage the stats dont reflect TE receiving yards. is richt just laying low during fall ball with those four guys, and then come on strong during the season???

In other words Frank Lane….. Richt tried to sugar coat the awful stats.

Even with the OL being kept out they are not allowed to hit the QB’s

With that in mind there should be a better completion rate when your not worried about having a d-cleater looming over you

This is a big concern

Marlon Brown returned a blocked punt for a TD
Rambo had a pick 6
Murray threw a TD
King had a rushing TD
Munzenmaier had a rushing TD
Plus a FG = 38

Marlon Brown has fallen under the

“He doesnt know the playbook” excuse

You know that same one that kept Morreno and many other great players from playing

Oh well, its all good, in the end we will still lose to FL, watch players like Brown play on Sundays, wonder why UGA has fielded the 4th most NFL players in the last 11 years and still cant get over the hump

Don’t forget, the stats were all from only one half of football.

If you double everything:

Murray would have gone for 260 yards passing for 4 quarters, 2 td’s, 0 int’s.

Rushing game would have gone over 200 yards too for 4 quarters.

Coach Richt said in post interview that Rambo had a 66 yard return for td. Smith had a 63 yard kick return. Jakar had a 42 yard int return. Ealey and Thomas both had a 15 yard run.

I think Georgia’s laying off the TE’s, don’t want to give anything away. This TE unit will dominate and be the difference against teams like SC, ARK, Fla.

Uhhhh, did Tim say there were more pass completions than receptions?? Soooooo, uhhhhhhhh, youre saying that the defense caught them? Wouldn’t those be INTs?? LOL

That would be typical Georia, at the end of the year saying, “Hey, our completion % is damn near 80, of course that includes the 20 picks the QBS threw this year!”

Not too good Coy !
