Georgia Football: UGA Player Dismissed, Gurley Falsely Accused of Assault, Richt On Using Two Quarterbacks – Daily Dose of Dawg
Sheldon Dawson Dismissed
Last night, Sheldon Dawson was dismissed from the team. Dawson, a junior out of Memphis, Tennessee, hadn’t seen a ton of playing time this year, and some speculate that his dismissal had to do with that. Mark Richt didn’t say why he was released, but I’m sure we’ll find out in the next day or two.
This isn’t a huge loss for the Dawgs, but it does take away depth at a position that already wasn’t very deep. It is expected that UGA will lose a number of defensive players after the season that aren’t a fan of Pruitt and possibly their playing time, but I don’t think anyone really thought this would happen during the season.

Todd Gurley Falsely Accused of Punching Man in Bar
To avoid skewing the details, I won’t give my summary, but will let you read for yourself here.
Mark Richt’s Monday Radio Show
Mark Richt held his weekly call-in radio show on Monday, and he had some interesting things to say. At one point, Richt was asked by a caller if he would consider giving the back-up quarterbacks a few series throughout the game, like D.J. Shockley back when David Greene was the quarterback. Suprisingly, Richt didnt say no.
“I think anything is possible,” Richt said. “I’m not going to sit here and start trying to tell the whole world what we’re going to do before we even talk to our players about how we’re going to rotate things like that. But that’s been done before. There’s always a possibility of something like that.”
I’m not sure I support just putting in Bryce Ramsey for the heck of it, but I wouldn’t mind having some packages where Faton Bauta came in and ran the read-option. I think this would give opponents a whole other aspect to prepare for and could really make this Bulldog offense dangerous.
With regards to the injury situation, Richt said that Mitchell, Scott-Wesley, and Rumph were all practicing Monday and are expected to play on Saturday. Keith Marshall, who suffered an ankle injury against Troy, did not practice, however, and I wouldn’t expect to see him back for the Vanderbilt game.
