[su_spacer size=”20″] There have been rumblings since last week that there may be a change at quarterback for the Flordia game. Rumors started to surface this week on internet discussion boards and sites including at Bulldawg Illustrated. Yesterday, Coach Richt was asked directly about the chances of seeing a quarterback other than Lambert in Jacksonville.

[su_spacer size=”40″] After Wednesday’s practice during South Carolina Week, coach Brian Schottenheimer was asked if there would be a quarterback rotation during the upcoming game. Schotty left zero doubt about the choice of starting quarterback. His answer begins at the 26-second mark.

[su_spacer size=”40″] The next opportunity to answer questions about quarterbacks came on Thursday of the bye week. Coach Richt, when asked about quarterback performance, discussed everything about the offense other than quarterbacks. Was the change in the air last week?

You can decide what his answer means, however, one thing is certain. The narrative has changed since Schottenheimer was asked a very similar question before South Carolina.
