Georgia coach Mark Richt used his time on the SEC’s weekly teleconference Wednesday to discuss how the Bulldogs addressed their defensive communication issues during the bye week, the increasing parity within the SEC East and how Georgia hopes to keep itself in the race to defend its division title.

1. Cut back on big plays
Richt said the Bulldogs held a full-contact practice last Wednesday, as they would during spring workouts, so they could work on fundamental tackling skills. The open date also allowed the coaches and players to address the communication issues that have occurred in the secondary -- the culprit in many of the big plays the Bulldogs surrendered in the first half of the season.
