Jeebus, Hutson. Don’t make it easier to doubt you.
Perhaps the Georgia football team’s most telling moment of the past week occurred Tuesday. Hutson Mason was asked if he was surprised he didn’t develop a trust in another receiver besides stalwart veterans Michael Bennett and Chris Conley.
No platitudes or fakery. Mason just shook his head and said, “Not really.”
It was just as telling moments later when Mason, speaking of the expected returns of Malcolm Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley, referred to “my four receivers.”
Yikes. Is it any wonder during the first four games he seemed to lock in on his downfield targets too often? Or why the tight ends have been little more than afterthoughts in the passing game?
It’s good timing he gets those two back today, although I doubt either sees more than a dozen plays. On the down side, if their returns don’t light a spark for Mason, I’m not sure what will.
