Bobo, Pruitt get first-team units as G-Day format stays the same

This year’s G-Day should look similar to last year in its format, Georgia coach Mark Richt said.

That means 12-minute quarters and drives that start at the 25 yard line.

Punts will result in a 35-yard change of field position and there will be no rushing on extra points and field goals.

The Red team, consisting of the No. 1 offense and the No. 2 defense, will be coached by offensive coordinator Mike Bobo. The Black Team, made up of the No. 1 defense and No. 2 offense, will be coached by defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.

“Some guys may flip jerseys on one side and then they may flip jerseys in the second half or something like that,” Richt said.

Richt expects the coaches to all be on the field since the staff is split.
