C Andrews, QB Mason trying to adjust to each other

Center Andrews adjusts to new starting QB

Perhaps no Georgia player is more directly impacted by quarterback Aaron Murray’s season-ending knee injury than the guy who snaps the ball every play.

Center David Andrews now will deliver it to Hutson Mason.

“Hutson’s a little more uptempo than Murray,” Andrews said. “We kind of joke about it a little bit. I think they’re two different players. I’m excited to see what Hutson can do. It’s fun out there. He’s a passionate guy, a fiery guy who has a lot of emotion. I play with a lot of emotion, too, so I think it’s kind of fun.”

Andrews said he and Mason “butted heads on a few things” during the game and they talked about it.

“He’s wanting to go, and they’re changing the defense, and I’m trying to change something and I think KG (Kenarious Gates) got called for a false start,” Andrews said. “I was trying to change something too and got caught off guard. He’s just uptempo about stuff and sometimes we’re trying to get him to slow down so we can communicate stuff. You get used to it. We’re going to have to get used to it this week.”
