ATHENS -- Georgia running back Nick Chubb isn’t too worried with who wins the quarterback competition.
As far as Chubb is concerned, each quarterback can put the Heisman Trophy hopeful in position to help the offense succeed.
“They’re all pretty much the same for me, just hand the ball off or just drop it down to me,” Chubb said. “They’re all pretty much the same. They all do a great job at that.”
Chubb ran for 1,547 yards and 14 touchdowns as a true freshman a year ago. He had three games where he was asked to carry the ball 30 times or more -- 38 against Missouri, 30 against Arkansas and 33 against Louisville in a Belk Bowl victory. Head coach Mark Richt previously stated that the goal will be to distribute more carries to each of the running backs to keep them fresh throughout the season.
Chubb is on board with that plan.
“If all goes well, we’ll have a more balanced carrying load and a great passing game,” Chubb said. “I don’t know how many carries I’ll get but whatever I get will be best for the team and the coaches will be in charge of that so that’s up to them.”
