There was some dirty macking going on at Georgia?
Kelly Stafford tells a story on how Matthew didn’t want to settle down, so to make him jealous, she dated his backup at Georgia.
Who was the backup at the time?
The INFAMOUS JOE COX.
Joe Cox was a highly recruited QB out of North Carolina, but he could never surpass Stafford, who was even more highly recruited. He only got the starting gig after Stafford was drafted by the Lions.
Cox was redshirted his freshman year in 2005. Through the first four years of his career at the University of Georgia, Cox had scattered playing time and completed 33 out of 58 pass attempts for 432 yards with five touchdowns and one interception. As a redshirt freshman in 2006, with Georgia trailing Colorado 0–13 at home late in the third quarter, Cox was put in the game to relieve ineffective starter Matthew Stafford. Cox threw for 153 yards and two touchdowns late in the game to lead Georgia to a comeback win, 14–13. Cox would start one more game in the season, in a 14–9 victory over Ole Miss, but eventually lost his starting job to the highly touted Stafford, who ended up being the first overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.
While Cox threw for over 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns and boasted a 146.4 quarterback rating in his first four games of the 2009 season, he did not perform as well in the next few games. Georgia finished 8–5 on the season with Cox as the starter. In Georgia’s 52–41 win over Arkansas in Fayetteville, Cox threw for a career-high 375 yards and matched a school record with five touchdown passes. Against #1-ranked Florida, Cox completed 11-of-20 pass attempts for two touchdowns, which was as many as the Gators had allowed all season, but also threw three interceptions in the 17–41 loss. In his final game at Sanford Stadium, the Bulldogs had a 14-point half-time lead. However, Cox threw two interceptions in the fourth quarter. Along with a red-zone fumble (as Georgia was attempting to tie the game), these interceptions sealed a loss against Kentucky, Georgia’s first home loss to the Wildcats since 1977. However, Cox was not asked to do much in the final regular season game against #7-ranked Georgia Tech. With Bulldog tailbacks Caleb King and Washaun Ealey combining for 349 rushing yards, Cox managed the game well, completing 8-of-14 passes for just 76 yards and a touchdown in Georgia’s 30–24 victory.
Cox became a coach, and he is currently the tight ends coach at Alabama.
But, the question the world wants to know is if Cox bust them Kelly cheeks?
