ATHENS — Greetings from the gleaming, expansive hunk of glass and steel known as Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall.
Y’all ready to talk some football today? I hope so, because that’s what I’m here to do. A couple of weeks ago, I requested interviews with about a dozen or so football players, all of whom will be playing major roles during the Bulldogs’ 2012 campaign. As it turns out, I wasn’t the only reporter to seek an audience with most of these guys. So Claude Felton and UGA’s sports communications staff have arranged to make them available in small groups between now and the opening of spring practice on March 20.
On the docket today are wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell, tight end Artie Lynch, quarterback Aaron Murray and safety Bacarri Rambo. We’ll be meeting with each one for 10 or 15 minutes over the next few hours.
I don’t plan to share everything everybody said all day. I’m planning some features over the next few weeks heading into spring ball and will be using some of the information for those stories. But, of course, I’ll provide any newsy and interesting info right away.
In the meantime, if you can think if any pertinent, sensible questions you’d like to see answered by the guys, let me know ASAP and I’ll try to get you some answers. Meanwhile, be sure to check back regularly today for updates.
