And Then There Was One?: Logan Gray's Possible Departure Would Mean Aaron Murray Was the Lead Dawg

I'll be honest with you . . . I heard Buck and Kincade talking about it during my drive home, and I rolled my eyes at the absurdity of it. It was just another preposterous bit of rumor-mongering to fill air time . . . until we got confirmation that Logan Gray is . . . what, exactly?

The early word would seem to be that Gray is as good as gone, but this may prove to be much ado about not very much; yes, Gray is meeting with Mark Richt to discuss his future, but we've been hearing all spring that he might make the move to receiver, and that such a position switch is up to him.

I'm sure Gray is disappointed at not nailing down the starting job, but all three quarterbacks were given equal first-team reps this spring, so no one can say he didn't get his shot, and the post-spring depth chart is hardly set in stone. Blake Barnes had a good reason to transfer; particularly in the wake of Zach Mettenberger's dismissal, Gray has far less basis for bolting.

In the meantime, as I am typing this, David Hale has little, GeorgiaDogs.com has nothing, and Gray's Facebook page offers no indication that this 'Dawg is anywhere other than under the porch.

After wasting all that time tracking airplanes from Athens to Tuscaloosa during the Kirby Smart flirtation, I'm not putting my trust in speculation. Breathe, Bulldog Nation, breathe.

Go 'Dawgs!
