The Throwback: Down to the Wire

Dawg Post is going into the vault to dig up some stories you should go back and read.

The biggest test for Georgia's quarterbacks in 2010, according to David Hale, is today's Dawg Post Throwback Story of the Day.


ATHENS – It was the biggest test to date for the three quarterbacks vying for Georgia's starting job.

But the performances were so strong across the board that head coach Mark Richt said even the officials walked away talking about how sharp the Bulldogs' passing game looked.

In all, Zach Mettenberger, Aaron Murray and Logan Gray combined to connect on 65 percent of their throws during Georgia's second scrimmage of the spring, tossing four touchdown passes and leading the charge on a day that Richt said belonged to the offense.

"Today, you walk away feeling like, we're in good shape (at quarterback)," Richt said after Saturday's scrimmage.

That's good news for a unit that returns 10 starters, but will open the season with a quarterback who has never started a game in his career.

To this point, Richt has called the competition an even race, and that may still be the case for the most part with all three quarterbacks performing at a reasonably high level. In turn, none has firmly established himself at the front of the pack – with all three rotating evenly with the No. 1 offense throughout the spring – but that could soon change.
