Greyson Lambert is the Right Man To Lead Georgia This Fall

Mark Richt made the right decision to select Greyson Lambert as Georgia’s starting quarterback. The Bulldogs will be a better team this fall with Lambert under center because of his skills and experience. I realize that this point of view will raise a few eyebrows.
