Video Blog: The Underdog

Logan Gray talks about his place in the QB competition this spring...

1) Very disappointed in the lack of audio transcription for this video. I don't know what is the determining factor for this feature, but make sure Brandon figures it out!!!

2)I have a hard time believing that he doesn't think about the hype at all. Yeah, the media makes a big deal out of little evidence, but that still has to be in the back of your mind. It's not a bad thing to feel like an underdog, in fact, it's probably a great motivational tool. All I know is, I'm not buying it.

I have to disagree, King Jericho. Maybe with one of the other 'prize QB recruits' it would be a motivational tool, but I never heard a lick of hype about Logan. Ergo, all the media talk is going to be negative, and even the strongest person can only use the nay-saying so much before it starts to introduce (crippling) self-doubt.

Stipulated: I may be wrong, but given all the talk about whether or not he was going to switch to WR, I would have to conclude that it isn't unreasonable for him to have thought he never had a fair shot at starting at QB anyway, so why bother listening to all the media outlets who are anointing one of the RS Sophs as starter now?

External motivation only goes so far when you're running gassers. Control what you can control. Ignore what you cannot-- that shit will only serve to make you undermine yourself ultimately.

Not to blindly give the media a pass here, but when Logan and his coaches both openly admit that, as recently as a month ago he was seriously considering a switch to wide receiver, I don't think that reporters are simply discounting Logan's chances without cause. The fact is, he was close to taking himself out of the competition, and that speaks to where he sees himself in that competition. If he thought that it really was a completely even and open competition, why would he even have considered a position change?

My thought process has been (and remains) that, yes, anyone can win this job, but that doesn't mean there isn't a favorite in the race.

King Jericho,

This is Brandon. I'm just as disappointed as you are that the audio transcription isn't working for the Logan Gray video. I'm not sure what the problem is, but I promise you I will work nonstop to get to the bottom of this issue.

Because this is called "The Underdog" and it was submitted by Mr. Spoon, I humbly submit to this blog the excellent music song "The Underdog" by Spoon:

BTW, Spoon is playing a show in Atlanta in a couple weeks.

My thoughts are this: there are way more negatives that can come out of proclaiming this an even 3 man race than positives.

I find it extremely hard to believe that one of the guys has not separated their abilities from the other two.

I just can't understand why we are always on the fence at UGA. Take a stand Richt!

Met has taken himself out of the race because of poor judgement. AM will be the man and LG will have to stay a backup QB until Met can regroup.
