“I think it’s going to go into August. I think it has to…”

“It” being Georgia’s quarterback competition.

Greyson Lambert and Brice Ramsey once again split first-team snaps in Saturday scrimmage, with Jacob Eason mostly going with the third team, but going some with the second team. It’s not clear whether it will be that way on G-Day, but Smart said the reps have been split close to even among the three.

“I need to use this game (G-Day next Saturday) to judge, because this is hopefully going to be a real-game environment. I wouldn’t want to name anybody going into it,” Smart said. “We’ve got to figure out how we’re going to manage it. Because obviously there’s two teams and there’s three quarterbacks, so you do the math. Do you let two guys go with the ones, do you let Jacob go with the twos? I mean, we’ve got to talk about that as a staff. We may even roll those guys so they’re not on one team.

“We’ve got to get the evaluation we need. That’s the most important thing. It’s not who’s with what group. It’s how many reps we can get them.”

More important than G-Day QBR?  Man, get your priorities straight.

    It’s only the spring game, but considering how the competition dragged on last year I sincerely hope somebody separates themselves from the pack. If it’s relatively even, the choice is simple – go with the future & Eason.

    It for sure sounds like a strong effort to control the hype and pressure on Eason leading up to GDay. If he looks average or worse, “well it was a timing issue due to spreading the reps.” If he looks good or great, “it was only GDay.”

    What is the over/under from Vegas on G-Day QBR being mentioned again in this blog before Saturday’s spring game?
    Lol. Just kidding Senator!

    How else do you think they are going to do the evaluation? More reps == more accurate QBR.
