With a season-opening match-up against a Top 25 North Carolina team looming and incoming freshman star Jacob Eason maybe not quite ready to take over full time, could a multiple-QB system be in the making for the Bulldogs when they hit the Georgia Dome to face the Tarheels? It worked back in 2006 when then-freshman phenom Matthew Stafford started his career between the hedges. He spent the first few games rotating snaps with two veteran signal callers before taking over for good in mid-October. The rest was history for Stafford and the Bulldogs.
