Georgia's Stafford and Moreno jump to the NFL — and here's hoping history repeats itself for Vanderbilt
Last night, we were saying right here that Vanderbilt's game against Georgia next season would be easier than this past season's, especially if Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno jump to the NFL.
Well, guess what? Stafford and Moreno are jumping to the NFL. Next year it will be Joe Cox at quarterback and Richard Samuel/Caleb King at tailback for the Bulldogs.
But Cox, who'll be a senior, will have at least one true freshman blue chipper breathing down his neck.
Remember when Georgia was last in transition at quarterback?
It was 2006, when a sophomore quarterback from Alabama (Chris Nickson) led the Commodores to a stunning upset over the Bulldogs.
In 2009, a sophomore quarterback from Alabama (Larry Smith) could lead the Commodores to a stunning upset over the Bulldogs.
