Dogs may be in for a quarterback battle

In the minds of many fans, Georgia’s quarterback situation for next season is pretty clear-cut: Aaron Murray will be the starter, Zach Mettenberger will be the backup and Logan Gray, the only QB on the team with any game experience, will yield to the inevitable and switch to another position, possibly wide receiver, in order to get more playing time.

Nice and neat.

But that scenario might be in for some rewrites. First, the coaches indicate that whether Gray moves or not is up to him. You’d think he’d want to go into spring practice in the position he’ll play next fall, but he might decide to give the quarterback job one more try, at least through G-Day. And, who knows, if he’s still at QB come September, Mark Richt might decide to play it “safe” and at least start out the season with Gray.

That would not be a popular decision, but Richt has gone that route before with Joe T. back in Matthew Stafford’s freshman year.

Also, fan expectations might be shaken up in another way. Despite the fact that Murray got off to the faster start last spring and received more of the practice reps this season when Joe Cox took Wednesdays off to rest his arm, not everyone is convinced he’ll be Georgia’s starter. The other night on “The Dawg Report” on CSS, Kelin Johnson and Ray Goff seemed to think Mettenberger is likely to start because Murray fell behind in learning the offense while missing several weeks of practices last fall suffering from triceps tendonitis.

Murray is the more mobile of the two and more of a threat to run, but some observers think he’s a bit short. He’s listed at 6-foot-1, but that might be using the elastic ruler that’s often applied to quarterbacks. Still, he could counter that with his ability to roll out and throw downfield, which we saw in last year’s G-Day game.

Height certainly isn’t a problem for 6-foot-5 Mettenberger, who hails from Oconee County just outside Athens. I saw him play once in high school and he clearly towered over everyone else on the field. I also was impressed with how far he could throw. He has an NFL-caliber arm and reportedly throws a more catchable ball than the early Stafford did, but he came to Georgia needing more development than Floridian Murray, who played among a richer talent pool in high school. Mettenberger’s footwork, in particular, wasn’t very good.

Zach Mettenberger (Bob Andres / AJC)

Zach Mettenberger (Bob Andres / AJC)

“I think it’s going to be a race,” receiver A.J. Green told the Athens Banner-Herald. “Both of them look real good. Zach’s probably got the bigger arm, but Aaron is just prepared like he’s going to be a starter.”

Departing receiver Michael Moore said in the Athens paper that “Mettenberger is a prototype quarterback with a cannon of an arm. He’s like the Ryan Mallett-type kid if he gets everything together as far as mentally knowing the playbook. Aaron Murray is like the nitty-gritty guy with the pinpoint accuracy and has a little bit of mobility.” Not forgetting Gray, Moore adds: “Logan is just a guy that’s been here that has more mobility than all of them and is more of a dual-threat that puts a lot of stress on defenses.”

Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo has said that Murray needs to continue to work on progressing through his reads faster and understanding the offensive concepts, as well as getting used to working under center, since he operated out of the shotgun in high school. Mettenberger, Bobo says, has improved tremendously at not trying to rely just on his arm strength and putting more touch on the ball, but needs to continue to get quicker on his feet. Helping with that is that he’s trimmed down to about 232 pounds from 249 when he arrived at UGA.

Said Bobo in the ABH: “It’s going to be a fun spring.”

And Moore said he “wouldn’t be surprised if they go into the fall not really knowing who it is.”

Frankly, I’m hoping Gray goes ahead and makes the move to receiver or flanker. He has athletic ability but wasn’t at all impressive in his infrequent turns at quarterback this past season. And you’ve got to conclude that if Georgia’s coaches had thought he was capable of making a difference in a disappointing season, they would have played him more.

There no doubt will be rough spots in the Dogs’ quarterback play this fall, especially early on, because of the lack of game experience. But I think there’s a lot of upside in the choices Murray and Mettenberger offer Richt and Bobo. Whoever is the starter will have the advantage of working behind a veteran offensive line that proved adept at protecting the quarterback even when it was underperforming early last season. And in Washaun Ealey and Caleb King, the QB have a couple of backs who improved tremendously this past season and look to get even better.

Plus, of course, Georgia’s quarterback will have the phenomenally talented Green as a target.

Coming off a year when the Dogs were hampered by too many interceptions, Richt has indicated that “respect for the football” may be the deciding factor in who the quarterback is.

Despite what Johnson and Goff say, barring any more problems with the tendonitis I still think Murray is probably more likely to start, mainly because he’s the more mobile of the two and he’s known for his on-field confidence and gung-ho attitude. But down the road, I can easily see Mettenberger, who seems more of a pro prospect than Murray, behind center for the Dogs.

How do you see Georgia’s prospects at quarterback in 2010?

Congratulations Alabama. SEC has Won The Golden Sombrero.

4 in a Row BCS NC Game Wins by The Mighty SEC.

Big XII in BCS National Championship Games is 2-5. (SEC 6-0.)

Who the hell do you think is better ?

3 of the Big XII 5 BCS NC Game LOSSES are head-to-head with SEC.

Including the LAST TWO (2) IN A ROW.

For the record, Texas could not stop Mark Ingram or Trent Richardson as both gained over 100 yards rushing.

Texas, on the other hand, in dire need of a running game, could not run at ALL against Alabama.

37-21.

Big XII vs SEC in Bowl Games 2009-2010 Season 0-3.

Big XII vs SEC in Bowl Games 2008-2009 Season 0-3.

If Mack Brown is worth $5 million a year, Coach Nick Saban is worth $15 million a year. Texas beat only 1 Final AP Poll Top 25 team, Nebraska. And, Nebraska has not beat a Final AP Poll Top 25 team all 4 years in which Suh played 54 games.

Alabama beat Number 9 Virginia Tech who beat Nebraska.

Alabama beat Number 2 Florida who beat Number 3 Cincinnati.

Alabama beat Number 4 Texas WHO BEAT NO ONE.

37-21.God Almighty Big XII.

Give it up Big XII with your 2-5 in the BCS NC Game to SEC now 6-0.

Go play someone. Beat them. Then, HYPE the hell out of your conference that you deserve to be in the BCS NC Game again.

The NC Game was The SEC Championship Game. 2 previous years ago, LSU was Number 1 and UGA Number 2 in the Final AP Poll. It will be the same for The SEC this season, Florida Number 2 and Alabama Number 1 in the Final AP Poll.

BEST CONFERENCE IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL ?

Give it a rest the rest of you LOSERS.

The Orange Bowl featuring Iowa and Georgia tek drew a 6.8 rating Tuesday night. This rating is better than the Orange’s last four ratings of ACC “BCS” Bowl Games.

The ACC has Won 1 Orange Bowl period since the 1996 Season Started.

Great ACC.

Give it the hell up.

The Fiesta Bowl drew an 8.2. . This game was between the Mountain West and the WAC.

ACC who had a LOSING RECORD in bowl games before this year, added to it with another LOSING RECORD in Bowl Games this year 3-4.

5 ACC teams did not even make a bowl game. ACC had contracts for more bowl games and had to give up their bowl games. Wonderful.

PAC-10 went 2-5 in Bowl Games for the worst performance.

I’m not sure if the success that Ward had at Florida State was the planning of Richt or Bowden, but if we can take advantage of Murray’s mobility the way FS did with Ward, watch out!

Richt (or Bobo) seem to favor the pocket passer, maybe too much. I’d love to see UGA have a qb that can keep the defense off balance and unable to predict our 35 quick passes to the outside for two yards.

Richt (Bobo) are way to predictable in their play calling.

Both Coach Richt and Coach Bobo have shown favoritism with the QB position over time and they will continue to support the local boy, though he shows no sign of leadership, which quite frankly is missing from this team. They will give Logan a shot, allow Mett to goof around because he has been hanging out at Butts Mehre for years and they will end G-Day undecided. Aaron Murray will then transfer back to one of the Florida schools where he can compete without bias.

Don’t be too quick to give up on Gray because of the way he played in brief appearances this year. Remember how awful DJ Shockley was late in his junior year. Came on the next year and won the SEC title. Don’t judge by cameo appearances.

If Murray isn’t better than any other of the other QB’s, then UGA is in for another long season…I’ve seen Murray play in pee wee ball on up and through the State Championship game and haven’t seen a better HS, and possibly college QB…he’s gone against the best during summer and won the MVP and/or the leadership awards…I’ve seen quality receivers flock to get on his team in 7 on 7 games during the summer…there is NO WAY that Murray doesn’t know the playbook and isn’t ready to run the huddle…I hope this is all a smoke screen by Bobo…when Murray steps on the field, everyone else is playing for second place…here’s hoping that CMR, and/ or Bobo, don’t screw this up for everyone…but I will say that if Murray hasn’t won the position already, then he needs to transfer, because sometimes you and the coaches just don’t click…there’s no way that Met could have made up so much in this past year, however if Met comes through the spring game and he looks 100% better than he did at the last game-day, then he has a chance, because he was really bad even if he was a freshman and was nervous

Hmmm 11:41am 1/9…Without a break here or there, mabe just a simple funny bounce of the ball, or a refs call can be all it takes to be considered a failure or mabe a MNC. 2007 was very much like that for the dogs, I will just let you do the resaerch. Ever heard of cycles in college football? what impresses me most is consistancy. CMR 90 wins in 9 seasons, pretty impressive to me, perhaps not to you.Wonder how those who follow Southern Cal have felt this year? or mabe Oklahoma, poor ol Michigan if I am not mistaken is the winningest program in major college football history……what were they ? something like 3w 9l or so? Then there is Notre Dame, also aa traditional powerhouse…..flat on their faces of late….Heck Alabama lost to La. Monroe just year before last, before that they were pathetic over the preveous decade. Mabe you are a Dog fan mabe not ,I dont know. Ga. Tech was horrible for what ? 10 years before last year? The reason I mention these other programs is I am pretty sure all of them have had top 10 or close to it for some time…..Again , cycles, I am a proud UGA grad and I support UGA atheletics. particularly football, and yes I would love a MNC, however I would never trade consistancy over a decade for just one MNC and then 9 down years. I will take CMR AND HIS 90 wins in 9 seasons any day. Mabe you dont see it that way, but I think if you will check there are only 1 or 2 other programs that have been as consistant as UGA has during the CMR era…………..Perhaps you should check with BuLLdawg, dude seems to know his statistics, and the boy sure can type!……RED
