Bulldogs’ Bobo to Mason: Relax and play ball

Georgia quarterback Hutson Mason will have prepared a few weeks for his second college start in the bowl game compared to one game week for Georgia Tech after Aaron Murray was lost for the season with a torn ACL.

“Early on the first couple of practices, it was more like spring ball when you’re calling plays, not necessarily game planning anything, you’re working on fundamentals and trying to work on some things you may want to try to improve from the season,” offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said.

Bobo is trying to get Mason into a routine that suits him and his style of play.

“I’ve been pleased,” Bobo said. “I still want him to be Hutson Mason. We talked about that a little bit today. ‘I don’t want you to try to Aaron Murray or try to be Mike Bobo. I want you to be Hutson Mason and we’ll do things to fit your strengths and you’ve got to be relaxed and play ball.’”

Bobo said Georgia will have its entire game plan in for Nebraska before the team wraps up its on-campus bowl practices on Saturday.
