This is a tougher decision than you might think. The odds-on favorite is Aaron Murray. He's the golden goose of the 2009 class, if not for a nagging shoulder injury last season, it's very possible that we might have seen him play after that debacle at Tennessee last season.
He's "Bobo's" guy, and he's got the edge coming into next season, barring any significant injuries.
Logan Gray could decide to make one final push for the job as well. It was thought that he would move to wide receiver to increase his shot at playing time, but Richt has stated recently that the decision is Gray's, and he hasn't made one yet.
If he does decide to make a play, his biggest asset will be his time within the "system." He's got more playbook experience and more time in execution than the others, but aside from that, there is little else that grants him an advantage.
Mettenberger is the dark horse, in my opinion. He's not as mobile as Murray, but the kid has a big arm and his understanding of the playbook is every bit as good as Murray's at this stage. Do not forget that this guy was considered a top-tier quarterback out of high school. And even though he doesn't have the so-called "it" factor that Murray brought with him, he's every bit as talented.
Some have even compared Mettenberger to former Georgia great—David Greene—that's a pretty nice compliment.
Depending on who wins out, I would not be surprised to see either one of these guys transfer; they are both THAT good.
Georgia also brought in Hutson Mason. He may not see time on the field this season, but do not think for a minute that he won't push his other counterparts to play even better.
He played in a spread-option system in high school, but as I've stated before, he's a good quarterback from a productive system, not a system quarterback; there is a difference.
It should be an interesting battle come spring and the decision will likely come down to chemistry and their overall comfort level on the field. Either way, I wouldn't want to have Mike Bobo's job when it comes time to tell one of them that they simply will not start this season.
