While the Ohio State Buckeyes and Florida State Seminoles quarterback competitions are receiving most of the attention, the Georgia Bulldogs have a positional battle under center of their own that is quitely flying under the radar.
Georgia quarterbacks Greyson Lambert, Brice Ramsey and Faton Bauta are all fighting for the starting job, however, it appears that no one has been able to separate themselves from the competition.
Because no one has been able to separate themselves from the rest of the competition, the Bulldogs could carry the competition in Week One.
Campus Sports is currently hearing that the possibility is there for the Bulldogs to use multiple quarterbacks for their season-opener on Sept. 5 at Samford Stadium in Athens when they welcome the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks. The tight competition allows some flexibility for UGA.
For Georgia head coach Mark Richt, this is a good situation to have.
In fact, Richt is currently in no rush to name a starting signal-caller and he is comfortable continuing to evaluate their talent.
“The reality is they’re all getting reps with the ones, they’re getting reps with the twos and getting reps with the three-units,” Richt said, via the Macon Telegraph. “We’ve been rolling them through like we said we would. We’re on basically the second rotation of that. (Sunday) will be the sixth practice with everyone having two shots with each group.”
Who will emerge from the first huddle of the season with the first-team audience? We may not find out until the Bulldogs take the field. Until then, we will have to wait to see if Richt shows his hand.
What do you think, Bulldogs fans? Should Georgia determine a starter or play multiple quarterbacks in Week One? Sound off in the comments section below.
