ATHENS – Football in Georgia could return to the black when he returns to Sanford Stadium for the first time in more than a month against Mississippi.

Coach Kirby Smart said the UGA Bulldogs were “considering” wearing their alternative shirts against the Maroon Bulldogs when the teams meet at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
“We’re still not sure, we’ve considered some of that, but we haven’t committed to it yet,” Smart said in his call for an increase on Tuesday. “We want to see a few things from our leadership and some of our other senior groups.”
Former American from Georgia Deandre Baker, who was recently dropped on charges of robbery, said the bulldogs wanted to wear black shirts every week when he was a player in Athens.
Regardless of the color of the shirt, it seems that UGA fans can see a new quarterback below the center.
Smart acknowledged that JT Daniels̵

“(Daniels) is very smart, he understands things, he’s very careful in meetings, he asks a lot of really smart questions,” Smart said. “He is always in Xs and Os, very intrigued by the defense of the other team. Every week they get tests and every week of the season he does the test and does it as well as anyone, not knowing if he takes pictures or not, does a great job of understanding the teams. “
Smart’s assessment of Daniels coincides with what Mater Dei’s coaches said about the former USC quarterback, as he broke the defense as a sixth-grader.
“He goes down there with us and gets replays from the scout team and he still knows what the other team’s defense is doing,” Smart said. “He’s very proud of that part of him.”

Smart said Stetson Bennett, 3-2 as a starting quarterback in Georgia, returned to the practice field on Tuesday “and is able to go today and do some things.”
Bennett suffered a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder after being hit while passing a TD pass in the first quarter of a 44-28 loss in Florida.
Smart said D’Uan Mathis and Carson Beck also got jobs in the quarterback, although he did not specify with which group.
Smart, who is always deliberately vague in the quarterback’s position whenever possible, said Monday that the race will be the same as last week.
