Feelin' the Logan Love

I felt comfortable (and reassured) during G-Day when Logan Gray performed as well as he did. It was apparent to most that he had not supplanted Cox as the #1 (as expected), but had shown enough of a different dimension that would lead him to the center of the huddle during certain situations this fall.

I'm even more encouraged now that we're hearing things like this:
“I think he’s (Gray) done a nice job of preparing himself,” Richt said. “You can just see there’s a lot more confidence in his ability to run the system than even in the spring probably. I think he had a great spring and took the momentum into the summer and has done a very nice job.”
While a starting job may not be up for grabs, Richt said the back-up quarterback will see significant playing time this year, and that’s all the motivation Gray needs.
“That’s what I’ve been thinking about this whole summer,” Gray said. “I’m going to do whatever I can to get on the field.” via Hale
It's nice to have a great Spring. It's even better to follow up a great Spring with an impressive Summer and impassioned August. A few weeks ago we assessed the shaven heads in terms of snaps in-season. In relation to the QB position, it seems Murray is ahead of roomie Mett in terms of readiness. Assuming that holds true, wouldn't mind seeing #11 play some against Tenn Tech.

But Logan Gray can play...he can move the chains, and he can put some points on the board. Points that may just make a difference between winning and losing.

GATA Logan!

Some other news and notes out of Woodruff Saturday:
  • From BulldogsBlog: Ealey has a hyperextended elbow; CMR says it'll be ok. Sanders Commings had a pick-six and the team had 22 players on the Dean's list, 79 to earn a 3.0; Casey Nickells earned a scholly after three years of walking on.
  • CMR has a sheriff's badge.
  • From Tyler Estep: Troupe left practice Saturday with an ice pack on his thigh; while Curran and Gamble impressed Jancek with their muscle memory.
  • We won't see him until Fayetteville, but Houston's got no problem.
