QB derby continues for UT in scrimmage
Another scrimmage for the Vols and it still sounds like there isn't any one player distinguishing himself at the QB positon. Interesting to hear that all the QB candidates were given equal reps with the first team and to see how each one fare in the competition. There is one thing I've got to wonder, though. How did Erik Ainge throw a 60-yard TD pass to Bret Smith but still end up 7-of-15 for 45 yards with 1 TD. Guess he got sacked once or twice in there, though the story doesn't elaborate much on that.
All I can say is, the Vols have to come out and establish some things early. Sounds like we're going to need someone to step and lead this running game for us. Seeing the orange and white game last year, I know we've certainly got the talent for it. And, as we hear every year, the offensive line should be a strength. So, it sounds like we need to get out there and pound the ball while the QBs get up to speed. I still predict that Leak will start the season only to be sat down permanently by the Alabama game in favor of one of the freshmen QBs, similiar to what happened with Casey Clausen in his freshman year.
