So this quarterback controversy? meme is a thing, I guess.
If I might offer a “whoa, hoss!” before it goes scampering off in the sunset, consider the following:
- The defense, while no great shakes, isn’t any worse than it was last year.
- Special teams, the other great black hole of 2013, have improved and to the extent that other teams are having to game plan around Georgia’s return game.
- Even with an anemic passing attack, Georgia is scoring at a pace better than eight points a game more than last season and is eighth in the country in scoring offense.
Put that all together and what have you got? You’ve got a remaining schedule for which ESPN projects Georgia will be favored in every game for the rest of the regular season. That’s not a situation where you say screw it, let’s get one of the back up quarterbacks ready for next year.
Hutson Mason had a bad game… check that, Mason had a bad half. You don’t toss him to the side on such a slight body of work. You work to get his game fixed. If it can’t be fixed, well, then, it’s not like the back ups are going anywhere this season. But the idea that a change needs to happen now, damn it? In the immortal words of Mike Tyson, that’s ludicwus.
