Georgia won't have two-a-day workouts

Georgia football players are scheduled to report July 30 and start preseason practice July 31.

The Bulldogs will work out every day in August with the exception of four Sundays and Picture Day, but they will not practice twice in a day.

Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said that this is the first time he can remember as a player or coach not having any two-a-day workouts.

"It's gone down every year, and that's good and bad," said Bobo, who quarterbacked the Bulldogs in 1994-97.

"The good is you can teach a little better, but you might not get them as tough as you would like them. You don't have as many players, but everybody is playing with a limited number now."

I think this is good strategy. When I played, two a days were mind bending. After a third way through the second practice, my body and mind were too tired to "think". Not much retained if all you are doing is "hanging in there". Practice makes perfect, but too much practice causes stupid injuries. The learning curve drops after hours and hours of running, hitting, and sweating.
