HOOVER, Ala. -- Senior quarterback Joe Cox hasn't played all that much, but Georgia coach Mark Richt says he already has the confidence of his teammates.

Richt said Thursday at Southeastern Conference media days that the majority of the team picked Cox as the best leader. He said they had confidence Cox could get the job done the past two years if Matthew Stafford had been injured.

Richt said he could have a package that takes advantage of backup Logan Gray's athleticism. Highly touted freshmen Zach Mettenberger and Aaron Murray could get some playing time if one of them secures the backup spot.

On other issues, Richt said he wasn't sure if the team would employ another "blackout" this season. He jokingly said he's not sure the fans would participate in wearing black after the tough game against Alabama last year.

I think after the Alabama game, the blackout was more like a "black & blue out"!!
