- Mark Richt’s comments on developments to date here
The big story to me so far is Sturdivant taking over at left offensive tackle. I know that someone untested is likely to start there, protecting Stafford’s blind side – that’s just what the current situation all but dictates – however, I thought it unlikely to be a true freshman, heralded or not. I’ve got to believe, though, that when Richt says things about Sturdivant like “(t)he value of midyear is gonna be huge in this thing”, the coach is pretty convinced he can make a go of it.
