CARSON, Calif. — Kirby Smart said he was happy with the first Georgia football practice out here because the team “broke a sweat.” If that’s the barometer, Smart will be really happy with the second practice.

The southern California heat was beating down, such as it is in late December, as Georgia went through its work out on Thursday afternoon. The site was a practice field at the StubHub Center, which is home to the Los Angeles Galaxy and now the Los Angeles Chargers.

Palm trees overlook the two fields Georgia is using, which is just inside the complex. The sky was blue, the temperature approaching if not hitting 80. While not anything like the summer Georgia heat, it was still considerably more than back home right now.

A few football notes from the media viewing period:
