Georgia Bulldogs Could Be Down Another Quarterback

April 28th, 2010- By Bryan Cross

The Georgia Bulldogs were one quarterback lighter two weeks ago following the dismissal of red-shirt freshman Zach Mettenberger.  Now, it appears that Bulldogs could lose one more, as junior Logan Gray is considering transferring.

Claude Felton, the spokesperson for the team stated that Gray had a meeting with head coach Mark Richt regarding his future.

“Gray’s current status with the team has not changed, however, he is weighing options for the remainder of his playing career,” Felton said through e-mail.

Gray and Richt had the discussion on Monday Felton said.

At the conclusion of spring, Gray was slated as the No.2 quarterback on the roster behind red-shirt freshman Aaron Murray.

Gray competed as the back-up quarterback for the entire 2009 season behind senior Joe Cox.

If Gray were to depart, Georgia would be left with Murray as the only scholarship quarterback on the roster until Hutson Mason enrolls in the fall.  Mason is from a local Atlanta high school, Lassiter High, and was an All-American selection by Parade Magazine.

Gray had thought about switching positions to possibly receiver.  He had appeared in many games as a punt returner, and has more yards returning punts, than throwing passes.

In total, Gray has appeared in 25 games throughout his career.

During Georgia’s spring game, Gray went 10 of 17 passing for 132 yards and one touchdown.  Murray was not as impressive in the game, completing 10 of 22 passes totaling 96 yards and one interception.

Still, Richt said that Murray showed the most consistency throughout the duration of the spring practices, and set him as the top quarterback, though not naming him as the starter.

“On a consistent basis, he’s performed better than Logan at this point,” Richt said of Murray last week. “That’s all there is to it. It’s the usual things: accuracy, decision-making, those type of things.”

Georgia gets back the majority of their starters on both sides of the ball, with the only player needing to be replaced on the offense is the quarterback Cox.

Whoever starts for the Bulldogs will be the beneficiary of what should be a very good offensive line that will be the strength of the team, giving the inexperienced quarterbacks time to make the throws.

USA Online Sportsbooks have situated Georgia with odds at 30/1 to win the 2010-11 BCS National Championship.

The Bulldogs open their season at home home on September 4 against Louisiana-Lafayette.
