Preseason camp can be a grueling time for college football players, especially at Georgia, where there’s no air-conditioned indoor facility and temperatures are consistently in the 90s.
Mark Richt realizes this. Today, the Bulldogs coach, as he does every year, gave his team the afternoon off so they can go swimming at the Ramsey Student Center on campus. They’re pretty excited about it.
#UGA‘s team is getting its annual summer day off practice to go swimming at the Ramsey Center on campus.

A MASSIVE outburst just came out of the players locker room below us. It almost sounded like players were chanting “Ramsey” Pool day?
