Athens — Georgia is holding its annual preseason “Media Day” later today. After lunch in the new multipurpose facility at Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall, we’ll get a 30-minute, question-and-answer session with head coach Mark Richt followed by a session with selected players.
Actually, us media types don’t get to select the players. We don’t know just yet which players will be made available to us. But we do know none of them will be true freshmen. They’re off limits for interviews until August 11th.
You can expect the usual team leaders to be in attendance. Just guessing here but I suspect guys like quarterback Aaron Murray, linebacker Christian Robinson, center Ben Jones, defensive back Brandon Boykin, wide receiver Tavarres King, tight end Orson Charles and tackle Cordy Glenn will be there. Doubtful big John Jenkins will be available but it’d be nice if he was.
Anyway, I need your help. I’m looking for some feedback. There are a lot of obvious storylines heading into the 2011 season and we’ll definitely get to all of those. But I’d like to hear what are some of the other subjects you’d like me to cover. Is there a particular player you’d like learn more about or a specific question you’d like me to ask Richt or a certain player or one of the assistants? Is there something you’ve always been curious about but was never sure who to ask? What would you ask if you were in attendance?
Well, now’s your chance. Let me know and, if it’s a reasonable request, I’ll try my best to get an answer for you.
After today’s media session, Georgia will conduct it’s first of 29 preseason practices. It’s supposed to start around 4:30 p.m. Last time I checked the heat index is supposed to be around 107 degrees then. So I know one of my questions is going to be what kind of special precautions are they making for the extreme heat.
But that’s just me. What would you ask?
