Social media reaction: Carson Beck named as UGA’s starting quarterback

Quarterback Carson Beck has been named as Georgia’s starting quarterback following the Bulldogs’ second preseason scrimmage. Kirby Smart announced the news to the media, but had told the quarterback room earlier in the week.

Beck, a junior, won the starting role over Gunner Stockton and Brock Vandagriff. Beck is Georgia’s most experienced option at quarterback. He is the Georgia quarterback that is most comfortable checking in and out of plays based on the look the defense is giving.

Georgia fans have to appreciate Beck’s patience. He sat behind Stetson Bennett and J.T. Daniels for several seasons. Most other quarterbacks would have transferred years ago. Beck’s reward is he will run an offense that is loaded with talent. Georgia’s elite defense compliments the offense well and puts the team in a position to succeed.
