When Todd Gurley showed up at Georgia’s pre-spring practice media day last week, the tailback said he wasn’t quite prepared to have answers because he forgot about the obligation.
Asked if he was thinking more about spring practice or spring break, Gurley flashed a big smile and laughed: “Break.”
Players and coaches are enjoying the week off before spring practices begin a week from today.
Georgia players headed to some of the usual spring break destinations in Florida: Panama City Beach, Key West and Miami. As usual, Bulldog fans hope it’s a quiet spring break where players don’t make any news away from campus.
New Georgia defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt wanted players to not forget about football while doing what college students do during spring break.
“We’re going to let them leave to go on spring break with a message,” Pruitt said. “Hopefully these guys will work out three to four times this next week and they’ll come back in shape. We’re going to go out there and hit it running.”
I asked Pruitt if he worked out during his spring break when he was playing for Alabama: “Absolutely. Of course.”
