    Hope that means someone did unexpectedly well not that the leader in the race did poorly. I’m afraid it’s the latter.

    Coach Richt would be an excellent GTP troll.

    Could we sum some of the QB sucking up to the DBs and LBs being better at coverage under Pruitt Year 2?

    Could it just be CMR having a little sport with the rest of the world? Maybe the Boca streak in him isn’t completely erased.

    I don’t know whether to be pissed at Richt or want to give him a high five. He does seem like he is just playing games with the media at this point.

      I think it was planned out in advance to not give away anything until either the press conference of the first week, or until game day, or maybe even Vandy week. And if so, they’re not deviating since no one has been able to separate themselves so clearly that it leaks out.

      Isn’t Bama basically doing the same thing now?

      Definitely a high-five.

      That full-transparency policy was damaging the program. Good riddance.

      I seriously don’t think CMR is playing games or even being sly about knowing who will play QB. My $.02 is that the QBs competing are just so equal (whether that be sucking or impressing) that CMR can’t or doesn’t want to make a decision at this time. He is looking for a series of events that will separate one from the others. CMR wants to see a high enough level of play, on a consistent enough level for a long enough period of time to get that warm and fuzzy feeling about who to give the job. Again it’s JMHO.

    Right did say they haven’t been horrible. But they want more consistency. I’d say at worst we’re looking at a cumulative Joe Cox.

    The good news on that end is that Joe really didn’t have the kind of consistency from his Oline and running backs that these guys will get this year. Also didn’t have a defense like these guys will have either.

    So UGA needs to run the ball 90% of the time and throw some high percentage short pass routes the rest. Seemed to work for Bear all those years and UGA is as deep in the running game as anyone in the nation right now. Surely out of those three QBs there is one serviceable enough to do this…

    Didn’t The Senator post an article a few days back about how teams aren’t being taught to stop the run as much anymore because of the proliferation of the spread attack? That would play into a running teams hands one would think.

    • That’ll work until we play Florida and Bammer D’s and if we just want to win 10 games and play in the Belk Bowl again. I’d like to think otherwise but it didn’t work out last season.

        You have to play the hand your dealt. I don’t think it’s the end of the world if we don’t have an Aaron Murray or Matt Stafford behind the line with the RBs UGA has this year. Of course it would be better if they had a great QB but there are plenty of ways to move the ball with the amount of talent that is still on the field. Schotty will earn his keep this year…

    So we will at least have a Coxian quarterback. And here some of us have been worrying.

    Anyone else hear scuttlebutt that Richt wants Brice and Schotty wants Lambert?

    • If this is true, then Richt needs to make the decision because he’s the one that’s going to have to live with it. He wants as much film and data as possible to make that decision.

      This thing is going to go into next week as the team starts its preparations for ULM. I’m not sure whether this increases or decreases my confidence in the passing offense.

        I doubt that is true, and especially that any fans would get access to that knowledge. But there is a simple solution, we have a couple of soft opponents early so both get enough plays to get more film in a live setting. What I was surprised about yesterday was not naming who was third, I must have misunderstood but going into the scrimmage I thought someone said we would know who the top 2 were. Must really be a close call of strengths and weaknesses between them.

        I am not concerned about us having someone who can lead us, we have some talent to choose from, but simply the focus with number of reps divided by three, rather than two, requires that this should be solved pretty quickly. Our situation does seem better than what I have read about Bama and LSU’s QB struggles but I feel Richt is right about consistency being the critical dividing point that we must find. Maybe by mid-week we will get the top 2. If not, surprise us on September 5. we can take it.

          LSU and Alabama have experienced separation in their respective QB competitions, as have South Carolina and Florida.

          LSU: Brandon Harris
          Alabama: Alec Morris
          Florida: Treon Harris
          South Carolina: Connor Mitch
