Hello again from the Butts-Mehre building. Georgia's practice this afternoon is underway and we're about to head outside to get a glimpse during the media's viewing period.
Will update here. Also Mark Richt also is meeting with reporters after practice today, so keep an eye out for that.

Tyson, Gilliard, Lott, Dallas Lee all still out of action at practice.
Samuel wasn't out there to start with, but he arrived about the time the media viewing period ended. He was wearing a red jersey.
Carlton Thomas was still in green but was taking part in drills. Malcome still first RB followed by Crowell, who rotated in with first offense.
Chris Burnette was also out for a third consecutive day with an illness. Watts Dantzler still getting reps at Burnette's RG spot with the first offense.
More tidbits, as usual, to follow in practice report later this afternoon.
Aron White says he thinks Orson Charles is 50/50 on NFL decision.
Blair Walsh says he's been getting some punting work with Drew Butler out injured. Walsh did say he thinks Butler will be able to play in bowl game.
Michael Bennett grew up a Michigan State fan (parents went there) ... Some good quotes by him on that today. More to come
Cornelius Washington says he submitted name for NFL Draft advisory board and hasn't made decision yet.
Sounds like he's considering it and wants "all the feedback that I can" get.
Says a 2nd round grade could convince him to go.
Washington says one reason he's considering it so strongly is because he's close to graduating anyway.
Richt in the room now ...
Says team will be in shells tomorrow and then break after that
"As excited as the players are to be leaving, I think the coaches might be more excited. It's a good time of the year."
Richt talking for a while about Bruce Figgins, how he's popular on team and wants to become a coach after football.
Richt says he wrote his former Miami coach Howard Schellenberger a letter upon his retirement in recent days.
Burnette has been dealing with "fairly severe sinus issues"
"We think that's all it is," Richt said.
Walk-on players awarded with scholarships are a one-year deal and need to be renewed, according to Richt.
"Everybody kind of knows that on the front end."
Richt basically confirms that Wooten is using a redshirt year ...
Richt on Kolton Houston's status ...
"It's still kind of up in the air right now."
And next season?
"I hope so. It's not been ruled out one way or the other."
Richt says he doesn't have final, definite word on grades yet for Fall semester, but ...
"I've heard absolutely nothing that would get me alarmed at all."
Richt says two of UGA's EEs in January can count back to last year's class. ... "And you're always allowed to sign 25 forward," with room under 85, Richt says
"By rule we could go to 27 (in 2012 class), but I'm not stating that is the number ... That's how many we could."
I would love to sign every kid we possibly can. We need to build our roster back up. I'm so glad they red-shirted Wooten. There is going to be a lot of competition at WR next year.
