Spring break is over at UGA. Classes resumed Monday. Football practice resumes Tuesday.
The Bulldogs, you might recall, opened spring football practice on March 10, holding one of their NCAA-allotted 15 practices before dispersing for the university’s spring break. Twelve days later, practice No. 2 is scheduled for late Tuesday afternoon, and spring ball begins in earnest now. The team will practice three or four times per week through the G-Day game on April 16.
Things will be hopping around the Butts-Mehre building Tuesday. The activity starts at mid-morning with Georgia’s “Pro Day” — 14 players from last season’s team working out for NFL scouts in the weight room and on the practice field. And about the time the current Bulldogs are wrapping up football practice this evening, the Georgia and Georgia Tech baseball teams will be playing across the street at Foley Field.
Speaking of the baseball game: It starts at 7:06 p.m. and will be televised on CSS; it will be Georgia’s first home game since March 6. The Bulldogs (9-11 overall) have played their past nine games in seven different stadiums from California to South Carolina, going 6-3 in that stretch. The game against Tech will be Georgia’s 11th so far this season against a ranked opponent.
Pro Day and football practice are closed to the public, per usual. But the Pro Day workouts will be shown online. ESPN3.com will have live streaming coverage beginning at 10 a.m. at http://espn.go.com/espn3/index?id=162227
More later in the day …
