According to Claude Felton, Georgia’s Hall of Fame publicist, Internet reports that Logan Gray will start at quarterback against South Carolina are untrue. In an e-mail, Felton writes: “Joe is starting.”
Then, being a Hall of Famer and therefore an exponent of utter clarity, Felton added this: “Cox, not Tereshinski.”
If you’re reading this, you’re probably aware that the Gray-to-start rumors have been all over the ‘Net and Twitter all morning. The basis: A post on a Georgia fan site (that spiraled with the usual viral Internet effect) suggesting Gray had been taking more snaps in practice this week and that Cox had a bum shoulder. Which would, if true, make him one unlucky Joe.
He waits three years to become Georgia’s No. 1 quarterback and then, in the span of a week, gets the flu but plays anyway and loses in Stillwater. And now he’s No. 1 no longer?
According to Felton, Cox is still No. 1. And now you’re up to date.
