Tiger senior cornerback Garry Peters has Georgia on his mind.
Just maybe not in exactly the way he expected.
His role for three hours on August 30 will be reduced to bystander because of his one-game suspension for a violation of team rules.
But he's as determined as anyone to help the Tigers beat the Bulldogs.
"I was looking forward to playing Georgia at Georgia - I never would have thought that I wouldn't be playing in that game," Peters said. "For it to happen, it was a reality check for me.
"I'm preparing same the way, even though I'll be on the scout team that week. I'll probably play receiver, and I'll go as hard as I can for those boys, and give them a great look."
Peters said his suspension - which he said is unrelated to the suspensions of teammates Shaq Anthony, Corey Crawford and David Beasley - "hurts."
Peters learning from mistakes
"You can't even understand how much it hurts - it hurts me and it hurts everybody," Peters said. "I violated a team rule and Coach Swinney handled it the right way. And I apologized to the team...
"It'll make me stronger as a man and more appreciative of my opportunities."
In film study, Peters said he's spending his time on South Carolina State, Florida State and future Tiger opponents.
On the practice field, he said he and his suspended teammates are going the extra mile.
"We've all been running and doing a little extra after practice," Peters said. "We feel like we need to show the boys that we're sorry, and that we really care."
