    All Fall practices closed?

    [incoming thread derail]

    I went to some Fall practices a few years back, it was great when you have missed football so much. And you can get GT stuff signed rather easily. :)

    No, not all will be closed. At least one scrimmage will be open to season ticket holders...besides that then yes they will all be closed.

    Almost. When the drummers have there "call and response" with the crowd after the fight song, the actual response is "Go Jack-ets." The students section changed that to "No Fat Chicks." Well, that's how it was in the mid-late 80's when I was a student.

    Eric, random question, but I've seen elsewhere in the Jackets online sphere that Paul Johnson wants UGA first game of the season. What do you think would REALISTICALLY need to happen for that to materialize?

    This will be my first preseason EVER to be able to attend a practice or scrimmage of any kind. I am so pumped to not have to rely on reports of others. No offense to the writers. I just can't wait to be there in person! Finally I can feel close to the program. I have lived away far too long.

    So does this mean us out of state posters can look forward to a write up?

    I think only one scrimmage will be open to season ticket holders, maybe two scrimmages if we are lucky.

    All practices will be closed.

    if I want to keep it that way I can't post anything haha.

    CPJ meets with the media after practices and that is where we will get our notes from.
