ATHENS -- Mark Richt isn't letting the beans spill just yet.
With the quarterback competition nearing the end of its first week, Richt was asked which guy -- Brice Ramsey, Faton Bauta or Greyson Lambert -- had impressed the most. Mum's the word, according to Georgia's head coach.
“I’m not going to give anybody any kind of hint," he said.
Richt did say that each quarterback has received time with the first unit, as well the second and third groups. With Bauta getting first-team reps on Tuesday and Friday, and Ramsey receiving first-team looks on Wednesday and Saturday, one can conclude that Lambert will likely get time with the ones on Sunday. And one can also conclude that Lambert saw time with the ones on Wednesday when practice was closed to the media due to inclement weather.
"The reality is they’re all getting reps with the ones, they’re getting reps with the twos and getting reps with the three-units," Richt said. "We’ve been rolling them through like we said we would. We’re on basically the second rotation of that. (Sunday) will be the sixth practice with everyone having two shots with each group."
Richt did say that he and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer have been taking a close at each quarterback in the situations they're putting them through.
"It’s really a different evaluation when they’re with certain groups," Richt said. "If you’re with the ones you probably have a little bit better protection, you have guys that know what to do. You might have a few more guys break open. If you’re with the threes, a guy might miss an assignment and all of a sudden someone is in your face and you have to react to that. That’s football and part of the quarterback position. How do you handle getting sacked or how do you handle pressure? Do you throw it up for grabs? Do you make poor decisions? We’re really evaluating them under different circumstances which I think is good. Not trying to make any judgments on anybody yet. We’re just gathering information. We still have a good bit of time before we have to figure something out.”
