It's my biggest issue with his hesitancy to go against the seniority preference. You don't have the luxury of time in college. I've heard talking heads saying things like "the future is bright in Gainesville". What future? This isn't the NFL where you draft a guy and have him for a while. The simple fact, and sad reality, is even if AR was given the reigns tomorrow, we could very likely have him for roughly a year and a half. That's how quickly it goes. I've been very complimentary toward Mullen for how he's built and maintained the QB room. And I do think AR has a good head on his shoulders and came in knowing he'd have to be humble and patient. So I don't actually think he is likely to transfer. But honestly, that's a very secondary point. In retrospect, we'd have given anything to see Trask another year. Who knows what we could've done in 2019 or last year if he'd have been the full time starter all of 2018? You just can't be so rigid with your system and unwilling to adjust based on circumstances. That mindset is one of the primary reasons that uga and Richt didn't get a ring in 2007. They were the best team by a decent margin by year's end and didn't even win their division, largely because their running game never got rolling until Moreno was allowed to play over the upperclassmen. He didn't "break out" against us that year. He just couldn't get reps in front of Thomas Brown(I think). Finally Richt conceded after 2 losses. Then Moreno left after 2008. Probably the best back they'd had in a decade and they got just over 1 year out of it, and won nothing. The old ways of the 80s and 90s where skill position players finally start as RsJrs. are over and have been. In today's environment, you have 3 years. The clock starts ticking immediately whether you want it to or not. I don't know how exactly it should be handled. But even though I like EJ, and thought he played well Saturday, unless what we've seen from Richardson is a total fluke, we're seriously wasting time.
