Mark Richt has lost control of who he follows on Twitter.
Less than two weeks ago, Richt single-handedly created a stir by following former Notre Dame transfer and then-free agent (he’s now with Florida State) Everett Golson on Twitter. Georgia’s quarterback situation is a far cry from, oh say, LSU’s, but it’s also a known fact that the current race is the first to go this deep into the offseason in nearly a decade.
I’m not sure when it happened, but Richt’s latest follow was handed to Virginia QB transfer Greyson Lambert.

And then you look a little further, noticing that Greyson now follows Richt, along with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, and the official Georgia football account, along with other members of the coaching staff. Hmmmm.
On Wednesday, I listed five potential landing spots for Lambert, none of which included Georgia; I figured that with immediate eligibly and two years left to play, he’d be best suited somewhere he could fall into the top spot of a depth chart. If he were to head to Athens—a four-hour drive from his hometown of Jesup, GA—he’d join a heated competition between Brice Ramsey, Faton Bauta, and Jacob Park.
But if any of this is even worth mentioning, I’d be remiss to leave out the fact that Lambert has also recently followed Arkansas coach Bret Bielema and offensive coordinator/QB coach Dan Enos, along with Colorado State quarterbacks coach Ronnie Letson.
I realize this is a reported story on a college student that pressed a button on social media, but c’mon. It has to mean something, right?
