UGA says Cox will play
Logan Gray practiced entirely with the first team Wednesday, but according to Georgia officials, Joe Cox will start Saturday's game against South Carolina.UGASports sources maintain that quarterback
Earlier today, UGASports reported that three sources close to the team (speaking on condition of anonymity) confirmed that Gray in fact took all the snaps with the No. 1 unit Wednesday against the scout team defense simulating South Carolina and appeared he could be called on to start Saturday's game against South Carolina.
However, Georgia officials say that Cox will open the game.
"Joe will be the starter Saturday," associate athletic director Claude Felton said in an email Thursday afternoon.
UGASports never guaranteed or said that Gray would definitely start against the Gamecocks, just reporting what its sources claimed, sources the site stands steadfast by.
Those same sources also say this was due to issues with Cox's shoulder, and that's why Gray was reportedly getting the nod. The alleged change had nothing to do with Cox's performance against Oklahoma State when he completed 15 of 30 passes for 162 yards and one touchdown, but turned the football over twice, once on a fumble and once on an interception.
