"It was a pretty good practice," head football coach Mark Richt said on www.georgiadogs.com of the team’s next-to-last pre-G-Day practice. "There was a little bit more action and spirit than I expected. Usually this is one where they've had just about enough before the game, so I thought we had good intensity and we got as much out of one hour of practice as you can get. It was a good day."
Former UGA lettermen joined current Bulldogs for dinner after the team had practiced for about an hour in shoulder pads.
In addition to the usual G-Day activities, the UGA Athletic Association will be pairing with the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia to sponsor a canned food drive, which fans are encouraged to join. Fans should bring a bag of canned food to the game for admittance. Fans should go to either the Main Gate, or to Gates 2, 4, 6 or 9; bins will be set up at each gate. Monetary donation stations will also be available; one dollar, the UGA Athletic Association says, equals four pounds of food.
All proceeds and canned food donations will go to families in Northeast Georgia.
Fans unable to attend G-Day can listen to the game on the Bulldog Radio Network, as well as on Sirius Radio 212 XM 199.
The Bulldogs will have a final practice before G-Day on Friday.
The 2012 G-Day Game is scheduled for Saturday, April 14 at Sanford Stadium in Athens; the game is set to begin at 3 p.m.
