    That’s quite an endorsement for Beck. I may have to rethink my attitude about Carson. The pick six against UAB and his childish, cavalier attitude as he left the field soured me on his Dawg future. I sure hope he has matured and is ready to become a leader. Whether it is he or Vandegriff doesn’t matter, Stet needs to be pushed and pushed hard to remain QB1!

    I love Stet and appreciate all he has done. He is all Bulldog to the bone. That being said, all that’s missing from Kirby’s resume is developing an elite QB. That’s just not Bennett’s forte. I have complete confidence in Stet if Back nor Vandegriff are ready to take the leap to elite. However, if one of them is ready, there’s no time like the present to embark on the future!

    Pickens likes the bullet, no matter how accurate, he goes for it...that is what he is saying here. He has worked with Carson before and prefers the Pickens-style fastball. That is his preference. I have also watched Vandagriff...equal in arm and accuracy. In fact, Brock's ball looked like it had more zip on it than Carson's. Two good ballers in my opinion....looks like a battle for #2 possibly #1. I like it. I am not worried at all about the future of the UGA QB position.

    Mike, I remember one pass he didn’t fight to catch vs sc his freshman year that was returned for a pick six. He didn’t even try to run after the guy.

    Hmm, what an endorsement of Beck. All season, I wondered what our wide receivers REALLY thought about the quarterback situation but never heard or read anything. This little bit from Pickens (combined with Jermain Burton's decision to transfer) gives me some insight, a little peak behind the curtain, so to speak. Go Dawgs!

    @DallasDawg You might take note that Jermaine Burton was never made available for interviews, nor was Pickens last season. Those were the two players making noise for JT to go in during the SEC Championship Game, per other players parents and fans in the stands that heard it. Good thing, it didn't end up mattering the Bulldogs brought home the title and there was a happy ending for all Georgia fans.
