Seth Emerson reports that Mark Richt has begun growing a goatee. It appears all is coming together for Evil Richt's return...
I am scheduled to appear with John Frary on ESPN Radio 1420 out of St. Augustine at 5:37 p.m. Eastern this afternoon. Tune in if you can, whether via radio if you're in the area or by following the above link if you're not. Go 'Dawgs!
CMR is still sporting the stubble and you can see a little fire in his eyes when he talks about players thumping in pads (today was the first with shoulder pads and helmets). He saves the Brandon news for his exiting words (again from cbssports RapidReports)
(Alex Woods' Twitter) Braves pitcher Alex Wood is happy to see that fellow Dawgs pitcher Joshua Fields has been promoted to the Boston Red Sox' AAA affiliate, Pawtucket. The next link below is to an article on Talking Chop that shows Wood's latest outing, this one for A-level Rome. "Alex Wood, SP: 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 8 K, 1.80 ERA Alex Wood sure intimidated the Intimidators tonight (I'll show myself out), dominating Kannapolis over 5 strong innings. Wood allowed only 3 baserunners, giving up 1 run but striking out a whopping 8 men. Wood doubled his previous (brief) career high of 4 Ks in a game, and now has 27 strikeouts in 30 professional innings." -Zeus12888 (TalkingChop author) http://www.talkingchop.com/2012/8/4/3219092/wood-tosses-a-beauty-ahmed-shows-off-his-speed-and-dodig-has-a-five

CMR spends about 16 minutes with the media following Friday's practice (from cbssports RapidReports). Spends a little time talking about the true freshmen and 10 or so minutes on the offensive line.
