Greetings from Sanford Stadium for another game with a noon kick-off.
This time it’s Senior Day against Charleston Southern. This is the third 12-hour home game on the schedule this season for the No.1 Bulldogs.
There are 30 players listed on the digital schedule today for Senior Day, including some prominent juniors in red shirts who may or may not play their last home game.
They include running back Zamir White, wide receiver Kearis Jackson, tight end John Fitzpatrick, kicker Jack Podlesny, offensive linemen Warren Ericson and Owen Condon.
“I think among them there are about 16-17 who still have an eligibility and are considering that eligibility,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said. “It wouldn’t be the first year to do it if we hadn’t had the cancellation last year. Last year we had everything ready for Devonte (Wyatt) and (Justin) Shaffer. A lot of these guys were walking last year they came back and played and were a big part of our success. “
Georgia had several players battling the flu last week in Tennessee, including Ericson, Fitzpatrick and defensive tackle Jalen Carter. Ericson was one of seven players to miss training on Monday due to illness.
Smart said on his radio show Thursday that “it has almost been a revolving door. Since we’ve had three or four back, we’ve had three or four outings. Every day this week has been a thrill minute with who tests and who has the flu. We have lost a few in the last few days.
