Nathan - Joe T was one of the Top 10 QBs in the country out of High School per the Sporting News. He was also a 4 star QB from Rivals.com.

We also have an Elite 11 QB redshirting. And another 11 QB is injured although he's at WR.

It isn't like this is some no talent ass clown.

Taylor Bennett started a game on last second notice and looked about 100x better than Shinski did against Arkansas. That was brutal. Everytime he dropped back to throw you had to hold your breath (heck, even when he went to hand it off).

You can't tell me you seriously feel comfortable facing a team that's beaten you something like 97 of the last 99 games with him as your starting QB.

Ah, hyperbole; yes, the Gators have generally owned the Dawgs since 1990 (though UGA managed to defeat UF twice more than Tech managed to defeat FSU in the same time period), but "97 of the last 99 games" is a wee bit of an overstatement. As for Bennett v. "Joe T," neither second-stringer has been terribly impressive in limited action, though both have had a few shining moments. Gailey was understandably conservative with Bennett versus UConn, and Richt was understandably conservative with Tereschinski against Arkansas.
