Greyson Lambert, your new starting QB. Hopefully this competition isn’t over until after the Vandy game.
A quarterback. A law firm. A basic cable star. https://t.co/oNFDTKckNc

BREAKING: Mark Richt announces Greyson Lambert as UGA starting QB for opener.
— Marc Weiszer (@marcweiszer) August 31, 2015
To hear Rick Neuheisel tell it, Georgia has a guy behind center– and it’s not who you think.
On SiriusXM’s First Team this morning, Neuheisel was on the line with Tayler Zarzour and Greg McIlroy and had the following to say (somewhat paraphrased) about Georgia’s team:
I will tell you this: Greyson Lambert looks every bit the part at Georgia. He can throw the deep out. Against the eight-man alignments Nick Chubb and the backs are sure to see, he gives them the opportunity to control the whole field.
There was absolutely no mention of the other QB’s in the race. And, for what it’s worth, he cited the secondary as a weakness…so take everything with a grain of salt. But that is as much news one way or the other as anyone has heard out of Georgia camp since the open competition was announced.

Is Florence and the Machine the right musical choice for a preseason hype video?
Is one minute into a one minute, 45 second video too long to wait to show any image representing football?
Probably not, and probably, respectively. Whatever. Let’s get it on.
Happy last Friday before football starts!
A few updates from the SEC quarterback races, no real surprises.
South Carolina: Connor Mitch, of six career pass attempts, has been named the starter for next Thursday’s bout with UNC. Also, someone in COLA is pretending to be him at bars.
Texas A&M: Sophomore Kyle Allen, unsurprisingly, has been named the starter. True freshman Kyler Murray will definitely see action, though.
LSU: No real news, but I heard on XM that Brandon Harris is ‘trending slightly ahead’ of Anthony Jennings. Harris looked good in mop-up duty in the near-comeback against Mississippi State last year, but the rest of his freshman season was pretty much a wash.
Florida: No real news, but both Will Grier and Treon Harris will see snaps against New Mexico State.
Alabama, Ole Miss, and Georgia: All quiet on the Western (and Eastern) fronts.
In other news…
Speaking of Florida, who broke spring ball with SIX scholarship offensive linemen, freshman stud tackle Martez Ivey is getting his knee scoped and is expected to miss about half of the season. Definitely hurts their chance to gain early momentum early in SEC play, where their longstanding winning streaks against Kentucky (28 games) and Tennessee (10) are on the line.
And really, that’s it. I’m ready for some damn football.
