Interim head coach Bryan McClendon said yesterday at Georgia’s bowl media day event that as of now Greyson Lambert is the starter at quarterback.

 

“Quarterback situation is what it is right now. Greyson (Lambert) is starting. Brice (Ramsey) is right there backing him up. That part of it hasn’t changed. I do think guys, at quarterback just like every other position, can earn more reps based on how they practice.  If Brice comes out there and practices well or whoever comes out there and practices well or the backup guard comes out there and practices well he’s going to earn more playing time. As far as that goes, I think everybody is going to stay consistent. The theme is you earn what you get, and the best player is going to play. The most productive players are going to play. The guys that give us the best chance to win, those are the guys that are going to play. That really hasn’t changed. Who may be at what position and things like that will be up to what gives us the best chance to win personnel wise and how we match up against Penn State.”

 

I had the opportunity to join a couple of other beat writers shortly after McClendon’s presser to chat with Lambert. Here is what He had to say as he completes his 4th year of college football.:
