ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia’s defensive players have already started preparing for their Sept. 8 game at Missouri. They just might not know it yet.

Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said after Thursday’s practice that the coaching staff is already introducing some of the defensive concepts they will use when they prepare for Missouri’s high-scoring offense in the fall. They’re working in more general terms right now.

“We’ve already worked on some of the things that we’re going to see,” Grantham said. “Players might not necessarily know that with what we’re doing, but I’ve always been a believer in [wanting] to develop during the spring, but at the same time you want to take a look at some things you may want to do against teams coming up early. We’ll do that now, and what we’ll do is we’ll come back in the fall and start the same process with training camp as far as developing guys, getting guys comfortable at whatever spots they need to, but also working on a couple opponents that we’ll see early in the year, to get ready.
