Cox Plays Role of Mentor

If there was any debate before this spring, offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said Joe Cox has put to rest the possibility that he wouldn't be Georgia's starting quarterback in 2009.

"He not only wants to be the starter, but he wants to be the leader of this football team," Bobo said. "He's trying to lead these guys and make sure we're doing things the right way."

Cox admits he doesn't have the arm his predecessor possessed, but that's not his game. His game is all about leadership, and it's something he has been developing since he arrived at Georgia.

"That's one of the main reasons we recruited Joe Cox was that intangible leadership he showed in high school," Bobo said. "He is productive when he's in there, they've seen him be productive in practice, and he's been productive this spring."

Cox has taken the younger quarterbacks under his wing this spring, and while he's spent hours and hours teaching his understudies, Bobo has also been pleased with the example Cox has set on the field.

"Joe's a perfect example," Bobo said. "I'm always telling them to listen to what I'm saying, but I'm also telling them to watch Joe Cox on every throw because he knows how to do it."
