NICK MARSHALL DID NOT WANT TO PLAY QB IN ATHENS!
Fudgy Carvell at the poop wrapper has a nice article up on former Georgia student-athlete Nick Marshall. We wish Nick all the best as he rebounds from a set back, and he's playing great at a position everyone knew he was extremely talented at. But what Fudgy of course forgets to mention (because he often omits pertinent facts) was the reason Marshall never took snaps in Athens was by his own choice. Lest we forget, the young man was also a highly rated guard on the basketball court, and was planning on pulling two sport duty in Stegeman and Sanford. With that in mind, and the time requirements of being a QB in the high level SEC, Marshall himself elected not to put that much strain on him and just play DB where the second job wouldn't be as detrimental. Why we'd expect the poop paper to let reality intrude on their Georgia makes a huge mistake narrative, well, we didn't, but sometimes you have to tell a fool that they are acting like a fool.
