Georgia Football: Another UGA Player Dismissed, Two QB System to Stay, Post Game Player Reactions, and More – Daily Dose of Dawg
Georgia Dismissed Another Defensive Back
Freshman defensive back, Shaq Jones, was dismissed from the football team Sunday night for shoplifting. According to reports, Jones stole $43 dollars worth of merchandise ($30 universal power jolt and $13 car cable) from Wal-Mart. This is now the fourth defensive back dismissed from the team this year and second this week. Georgia also lost two defensive backs to injury this week, one season-ending and one career-ending.
I really don’t think the Jones dismissal will have any effect on this team moving forward. He was a 2-star safety that was likely never going to receive any serious playing time. What I don’t like about this dismissal is that Georgia will once again look bad because they are harsher with their punishments than other schools. For a misdemeanor theft, Mark Richt didn’t really have to do anything. If you remember, Jameis Winston was also charged with misdemeanor theft in the off-season, but he didn’t see any suspension.

Richt Says the Two QB System Might Stay
Last week, Mark Richt didn’t shoot down the possibility of Georgia playing more than one quarterback against Vanderbilt, and with good reason. Backup quarterback, Bryce Ramsey, saw his first real, meaningful action on Saturday, and Mark Richt says they may continue to let him play a little bit moving forward.
“It did work out well,” Richt said on Sunday. “I think there’s always a chance that we’ll continue to do that. I’m not gonna sit here and say for sure what we’re gonna do because I don’t know for sure. But it’s definitely a possibility to keep doing that type of thing.” – Mark Richt
Ramsey didn’t look bad in his first big appearance, but he did miss a couple wide open throws and looked a bit antsy. At first, I didn’t really love the idea of playing a redshirt freshman quarterback when it mattered, but now I’m starting to open up to it. Earlier in the year, I supported Hutson Mason because he was at least able to take care of the ball. Now that he’s throwing bad interceptions, fumbling the ball (UGA has been recovering them), and missing wide open receivers, I don’t mind giving Ramsey a few chances. I still think that right now Hutson is Georgia’s best option, but if Bryce starts killing it, that could certainly change.
