Georgia‚Äôs battle for the starting quarterback job in 2010 is being revisited this week with the return of Zach Mettenberger as LSU‚Äôs starting quarterback.
It was more than just an Aaron Murray-Mettenberger competition.
Then-redshirt junior Logan Gray was also in the mix.
‚ÄúIf quarterback doesn‚Äôt work out for him, he can go and play another position,‚Äù Mettenberger said before spring practice in 2010.
That‚Äôs exactly what Gray did. He switched to receiver in May of that year after Murray was named the starter.
Mettenberger, of course, was removed from the equation when he was dismissed from the team weeks after his spring break arrest. He later plead guilty to misdemeanor sexual battery.
Murray reiterated Saturday that he didn‚Äôt think Mettenberger and himself would have stuck it out this long together at Georgia.
‚ÄúI doubt both of us would have stayed,‚Äù Murray said. ‚ÄúI‚Äôm sure one of us would have probably left and you‚Äôd be talking to him right now and I‚Äôd be at LSU or another squad.‚Äù
