Georgia will tee it up between the hedges against Louisiana-LaFayette this Saturday. And it will do so without a lot of youth on the field.
The Bulldogs look like a relative old folks home compared to SEC East brethren such as Tennessee and Florida. Seventeen true freshmen are included on the Gators’ two-deep depth chart for Miami-Ohio while the Vols are expected to play 17 freshmen and redshirt freshmen in their opener against UT-Martin.
Nothing of the sort for Georgia. Much attention will be placed on redshirt freshman Aaron Murray, who will make his debut as the starting quarterback for the Bulldogs. But the only true freshman on the two-deep is quarterback Hutson Mason. Junior college transfer Jakar Hamilton will get the starting nod at one of the safety positions. Otherwise, it’s a relatively seasoned squad that will take the field for Georgia in the season opener.
