Paschall goes on to point out that the only quarterback to not redshirt his first season other than Stafford was none other than Hutson Mason. Of course that was due the extreme circumstances of Logan Gray waving goodbye and Mett's transfer.
Back to Park, here's the head coach's early assessment:
This may be a post for another day. But the quarterback position in Athens is seemingly going through a transition period. And that's not just a statement about a fifth year senior in Murray moving on. We might see "business as usual" with Mason this spring and likely the fall as well. But with a guy like Bauta and Park, there's going to be some emphasis on running the football from that position.
That's something I thought Bobo should've done more with Murray, at least early in his career. With the depth appearing to be restored to the way Richt likes it, I can't help but think the reins are about to be turned loose.
