Which of the three quarterbacks, Greyson Lambert, Brice Ramsey or Jacob Eason, will emerge as the starter?
“I think we will find out when everyone else does,” said Georgia OL Isaiah Wynn. “Whoever it is can get the job done.”
I’m not sure I agree with either of those statements. Wynn and the team will almost certainly find out before the rest of us - certainly before the general public does. In terms of if any of the three of them can get the job done - I think the jury is still out in a major way.
I will admit that I have more faith in the current offensive trajectory, but it’s faith - not fact - that UGA will be better on offense this fall. Last year really tested your faith in Georgia’s offense. That’s why the question of who will be under center is so important.
Everything has changed around Greyson Lambert (under his third head coach in three seasons) and Brice Ramsey (under his third offensive coordinator in three seasons). Jacob Eason, who has unfairly been thrown into the fire of outrageous expectations because of last season’s failures, will have to deal with real, live defenders soon.
None of the three quarterbacks come into this season as a great option. Still, the media didn't bother to ask Kirby about the quarterbacks today outside of a question from a TV reporter who asked if fans were going to have a say in who the signal caller will be this fall.
“Do the fans impact my decision? Absolutely not,” Kirby said, leaving out the part where this isn’t Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game.
It was the most probing question of the day about the signal callers. I’m not sure if that’s an indictment of those of us in the media; a recognition that Kirby is getting close to perfecting his filibustering opening monologue; or the inefficient nature of press conferences that now require questioners to wait for a microphone so the question can be properly broadcast for the world to see on the SEC Network.
The question: “Who is starting at quarterback?” isn’t really the complete question as there are multiple layers to the question: Who will the starter be for the North Carolina game? Will that person continue to start if UGA loses that game? Is the person who starts the first game of the season the person who will start the entire year?
I don’t know.
Honestly, I don’t think anyone knows.
