JACKSONVILLE, Fla — Even after he led a dramatic comeback over a rival in his first career start, Georgia quarterback Hutson Mason didn't quite feel like he was the firm leader of the Bulldogs' offense. That was still Aaron Murray, who threw for 13,166 yards and 121 touchdowns in his four years as Georgia's starter but tore the ACL in a knee toward the end of the season.

But as Murray turned his focus toward rehabbing the knee and preparing for the NFL draft, he wasn't around practice much. Mason became the alpha Dawg in the huddle. Surrounded by reporters Friday before Georgia's Gator Bowl practice at Jacksonville University, he comfortably held court for more than 10 minutes. Looks like his team now.
