Week 10 position battle: Georgia has QB issue
With Mark Richt’s seat getting hotter and hotter with each loss, the question Georgia fans are asking this week is who will the 15-year head coach start at quarterback with his job potentially on the line?
Mark Richt and Brian Schottenheimer both say they're undecided on who will start at QB next week.

Let’s be honest here: Despite how strong Georgia’s recruiting has been as of late, including the favorite to win 2015 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year (Todd Gurley), the Bulldogs don’t have a quarterback worth starting or many other offensive weapons, especially with injuries to running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. Still, a losing record would be a disaster for the coach of a Top 10 team to start the season.
SEC East Position Battle: Georgia Quarterback — Faton Bauta vs. Greyson Lambert vs. Brice Ramsey
In his first career start, Bauta was threw 33 passes, four of which were intercepted, as Georgia lost its third conference game. Though the result is disappointing, you shouldn’t blame Bauta, whose five career passing attempts prior to the game didn’t put him in much of a position to come out victorious with the Bulldogs in a must-win situation.

Georgia’s coach must decide if he wants to continue with his bold choice of third-stringer Bauta at quarterback, revert to the know-what-you-have Lambert, or let sophomore Ramsey have a chance to run the offense.
The revolving door has become somewhat of a joke in Athens, but after going to Bauta to replace the ineffective Lambert, the hunch is Richt will go down to the bottom of the depth chart once again and give Ramsey a shot Saturday against Kentucky .
