Could be worse

Based strictly on the numbers from last Saturday's scrimmage, rising junior Logan Gray might have taken a step back in the competition for the starting quarterback job, but he's not ready to give up on the battle just yet.

"I didn't think it was my best day, but there's always room for improvement, and that's not our only scrimmage of the spring," Gray said.

For the day, Gray was 6-of-14 passing for 37 yards and one interception and was sacked three times.

That last number resonates, as Gray played all but one series behind the second-team offensive line, which has been decimated by injuries. Gray said that's something he thinks will change going forward.

"I just missed some throws, some things didn't really go my way," Gray said. "I would have liked to have gotten a few more reps with the ones, but I'm sure that will probably even out on Saturday and G-Day, too."

Slow day at practice

Richt spent the meeting time Tuesday praising his players for their tempo throughout last week's scrimmage. He spent the practice time eating his words.

"Out of nine practices, I would rate it the ninth as far as just the tempo," Richt said. "It kind of fizzled on us a little bit. I'd been pretty pleased with it all spring, but (Tuesday) it kind of gave way a little bit. I think we've got to learn to push through when we're tired, and I didn't think we practiced like champions."

Still even

Bobo still hasn't formulated a depth chart at quarterback after Saturday's scrimmage, and that's not likely to change before G-Day, Richt said. The plan, he said, will be to extend the rotations they've employed this spring right through to the end.

"More than likely the quarterbacks will just be fluid," Richt said. "They'll roll. They'll be a red and a white team, and they'll be wearing black and I'm sure Mike (Bobo) will just roll them like we have been. I'm not sure if it'll be by quarter or by series, but we'll just keep rotating those guys with both units." Recommended Stories
