College basketball has the one-and-done phenomenon, which has been bad for the sport.
College football doesn’t have the equivalent, but the quarterback position is becoming a one-and-everybody-else-is-done situation.
There are no better examples of that than what has happened at Alabama and Georgia.
At both programs, a true freshman won the starting job last year. Then every other scholarship quarterback decided to leave.
At Alabama, that leaves a depth chart of one true sophomore and two true freshmen.
At Georgia it’s even more dire, one true sophomore and one true freshman.
Florida’s quarterback depth chart this spring includes two redshirt freshmen and true freshman Kadarius Toney from Blount.
Auburn’s is as deep with scholarship quarterbacks as any team in the country, but the Tigers are benefitting from the transfer of talented Jarrett Stidham from Baylor.
Georgia and Alabama are set with starting quarterbacks who had great success as true freshman — so much so that they ran off all the experienced competition.
