     Last Saturday the Georgia Bulldogs played their annual G-Day Game at Sanford Stadium. Georgia fans have been waiting anxiously all offseason to see if the 2009 season was a fluke or a sign of things to come, and many felt like Saturday's game could be a preview. The game ended with the White team beating the Red team 17-7, but the main story of the game was the QB battle taking place. Three QBs-Logan Gray, Zach Mettenberger, and Aaron Murray- appeared to be running neck and neck prior to the game, and it really doesn't seem like much has changed.

   The winner Saturday was Zach Mettenberger. Mettenberger went 6-of-10 for 150 yards and two touchdowns, while Logan Gray was 10-of-17 for 132 yards and a touchdown and Aaron Murray finished 10-of-22 for 96 yards. Mettenberger looked more comfortable in the pocket, while both Gray and Murray appeared to be pressured much easier. Although Mettenberger had the better Saturday, it must be taken into consideration that he played against the second-string defense, while Murray and Gray played against the starters.

   I thought that Saturday's game would give a clear answer as who would be starting at QB for Georgia this year, but I think it's made the answer harder to find. Although Mettenberger had a better spring game, his offseason arrest and one game suspension puts him a step back. Either Murray and Gray could have sealed the starting job with a dominating performance, but both played at about the same level. The decision is so unclear I fully believe the coaches don't know what they are going to do. Even though I wouldn't be surprised with any of the three QBs starting, I would hate to write a blog and end it with "I'm just not even going to speculate". My prediction is that Aaron Murray will be starting September 4th against Louisiana-Lafayette.
