Tyler Russell has been getting a majority of the snaps this year.
The 2011 season saw no consistency at quarterback for the Bulldogs.
Chris Relf was the starter, but most fans remember seeing him on the sideline against LSU as Tyler Russell finished the game.
This year, Russell is the starter and has gotten almost all of the snaps.
While quarterback controversy can fuel some teams, for others it hurts them—such as LSU in the national title game last year. Mississippi State was in the same boat as LSU last year.
The Bulldogs don't have to worry about it this year as Relf is gone and Russell is firmly planted in as the starter. And he's impressed in the four games this year.
Russell has completed 55.7 percent of his passes for 822 yards and eight touchdowns, which equals his total from last year.
While there is no comparing Russell to the likes of Aaron Murray, Tyler Bray or A.J. McCarron, Russell is still a good quarterback who can succeed in the SEC.
All he needed was a chance, and he's getting a lot of them this year.
