Much like their conference rivals Florida and Alabama, Georgia is yet another SEC team tinkering with the the idea of playing more than one quarterback in their opener. What seems like a trend down south now has Bulldogs coach Mark Richt hinting he will rotate quarterbacks as well when Georgia opens up their season on September 5 against Louisiana-Monroe.
Chip Towers of Dawg Nation stated after Georgia’s final scrimmage Thursday Richt said: “If it was today, my feeling is we’d play more than one guy.”

Greyson Lambert and Brice Ramsey are the two likely candidates Richt is speaking of. According to Towers, each played one quarter of the two-quarter scrimmage with the No. 1 offense, while Faton Baton played a quarter and a half with the No. 2 unit on Thursday. Although, to be fair, Richt said not to read too much into that.
Lambert, the Virginia grad transfer, is coming off a season with the Cavaliers in which he passed for 1,632 yards and threw 10 touchdowns to 11 interceptions.
Ramsey, a 6’3”, 213-pound sophomore from Kingsland, Georgia, is coming off a season in which he completed 24 of 39 passes for 333 yards and three touchdown with two interceptions, while backing up Hutson Mason last season.
