OK, fair enough. I didn't take your post seriously.
Maybe y'all do have a QB. Sure you do have multiple schollied guys that are listed on your roster that are listed as a QB. The only one to take a college snap last year looked below average, didn't help the OLine (sacked 10 times in 2 games against teams not known for their pass rush) and really didn't look ready to be on the field. But that's pretty consistent with UGA under CMR. I think DJ Shockley was the last guy that looked ready to start when called upon. The rest were not given meaningful snaps in the regular season in an attempt to prep for the next season. Its a pretty common theme with him at most positions.
UGA hasn't had a good OLine in a long time. They have looked better at times with better QBs that understood their limitations and could scramble and were comfortable enough with the O to make things happen while on the move. Combine a below average OLine with a QB that is not comfortable enough to keep his head up looking down field while running for his life and it just doesn't bode well. The two together usually make both the QB and OLine look worse than they really are. When they start out below average this gets magnified even more.
History and especially recent history just isn't on your side. Your most talented guy is already injured again and the rest are just not talented enough to overcome a bad OLine and an average QB and the ongoing history of injuries (outdated S&C program doesn't help).
Maybe in a few years if he is still there. But at this point he will need to spend time getting guys to line up correctly and get a D called before the ball is snapped. With the trend moving towards the no huddle and hurry up this will be a challenge that is magnifies by the fact UGA is spending time on basics and asking its guys to think too much. A problem they could never solve under CTG.
No, sorry but this one is proveablely wrong. Talent and a 5th year SR at QB and an NFL caliber RB in Gurley have blinded some to the reality that Hobo is a sub par OC that the average fan can read presnap and lacks imagination and innovation.
UGA better hope he is and the 2 freshman can play. A great running game can cover many if not most other issues on a college team. Gurley at 100% and motivated with a freshman as a competent reserve can put UGA in a position they just flat out have no business being. If Gurley is not 100% and motivated I doubt they win 7 games this year and might not win 6.
