UGA QB Jamie Newman Opts Out of Season, Makes Gators SEC East Favorites


When it comes to the SEC East, the Gators always seem to have a thorn in their side better known as the Georgia Bulldogs. Georgia has beaten Florida every time since Dan Mullen began his head coaching tenure in Gainesville, but the news of a key player opting out of the season may be the thing that gives Florida the biggest edge.

The man who was going to be the Bulldogs starting QB, Jamie Newman, officially opted out of the season.

Anytime a team loses a starter is a massive blow, but Georgia still has upwards of seven QB's on their roster according to their website. The problem? All of them are redshirt sophomores or younger except for one. The next non-underclassman is Stetson Bennett, a junior. Bennett threw 27 passes last season, completing 20 of them and had two touchdowns. JT Daniels, a USC transfer, is expected to be the starter.

Does this mean the Florida Gators have a definitive upper hand on Georgia this year? What do you think?
