OSU Football Notebook: Receivers doing too much thinking

BRANDON CHATMON Published: August 8, 2009
The Oklahoma State receiving corps has been dropping the ball more than head coach Mike Gundy would like to see in the first few days of fall practice. But Gundy isn’t worried, because he knows it’s an issue caused by too much thinking, not a lack of ability.

"It looks like it always has this time of year,” Gundy said of his receivers’ early drops in practice. "There’s a lot of thought and thinking going on. They’ll start playing better in 10 or 15 days. We never encourage the ball being on the ground, but the reason it is is because they’re thinking so much.”

The development of a legit No. 2 receiving threat alongside Dez Bryant is one of the focuses of Oklahoma State’s fall camp.

In Focus: Georgia
The injury bug appears to have hit the Georgia Bulldogs early in fall camp.

Junior safety Reshad Jones, a preseason third-team All-SEC pick, "tweaked” a hamstring, according to a report on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Web site on Thursday.

"He’ll be healthy enough when the season starts,” Georgia coach Mark Richt told the Web site. "He’ll have enough time to be in great condition for the first game.”

Georgia opens the season at Boone Pickens Stadium on Sept.
