Georgia Bulldogs: G-Day Game and Updates

| by

I know I just updated you with Georgia Bulldogs spring notes yesterday but Mark Richt has done something that has created a little buzz about the upcoming G-Day game. He's basically taken it from being "just" a scrimmage to it being a competition.

This will either end up reeking of awesomeness or it could blow up in his face but I will definitely be watching. Richt picked team captains and had them choose their teams after practice on Monday. The Black team is captained by QB Aaron Murray and CB/KR Brandon Boykin.

The Red team is captained by ILB Christian Robinson and C Ben Jones. These guys seem pretty serious about winning this competition and have taken to twitter to "trash talk".

@crob45 Christian Robinson
I'd rather win a championship than a Heisman! #TeamJonesRobinsonGoingToTheChampionship
@crob45 Christian Robinson
#TeamJonesRobinson has the best offensive line and linebackers. @aaronmurray11 have fun gettin a pass off
@aaronmurray11 Aaron Murray
@crob45 is talking way to much smack. I think he is a little scared about what @MrBoykin2 and myself about to do

Looks like the guys are having some fun with it. Here are the rosters broken down by position for each team. Injured players are listed here although as of last week 18 players were being held out of practice. Expect most of those to play but there are probably several guys on this list that will not play in the game on Saturday. The game will be carried live by CSS and starts at 1pm this Saturday. Follow our blogs twitter account @CFBZ for updates and thoughts during the game.

A few thoughts on the teams:

Black Team- STACKED on offense but the OL is very inexperienced. DL and ILB look strong and there are 4 DBs with quality experience but OLB doesn't have much experience. I think this team beats Vandy, Ole Miss and Kentucky.

Red Team- OL is stocked, play-makers at WR and a solid backfield but inexperienced at QB. 3 starting LBs although not much depth beyond them, DL looks OK, Secondary looks shaky especially if Rambo doesn't play.
