No matter where Georgia quarterbacks coach Mike Bobo goes, there's no escaping the inevitable question - who's going to be the Bulldogs' starting quarterback next fall? Not surprisingly, Bobo was asked that same question numerous times Thursday night when he was the speaker a meeting of the Rockdale County chapter of the Georgia Touchdown Club at the Georgia International Horse Park.
"We're going to play the guy that gives us the best chance to win football games and compete for SEC and national championships," Bobo said. "You think I'm making the standard answer, but our job is to put the guy on the best guy field that gives us the best chance to win football games, whether it's a senior or a freshman."
The Rockdale club's outgoing president, Don Patten, who officially turned over the reigns of his job to new president Patricia Price near the end of the meeting, was glad to have Bobo visiting with the quarterback race being such a hot topic.
"It's great for our club to have a coach take a time out from their busy recruiting schedule and just come over and have a little dinner and talk about the upcoming year," Patten said. "It gets everybody excited about the upcoming year."
After discussing each quarterback during his 18-minute speech to those gathered at the meeting, Bobo fielded questions from the crowd about the team. The first question - who does Bobo predict the starting quarterback will be when the sixth game of the season rolls around.
Bobo gave the crowd a laugh by replying with, "The best one."
