Auburn OC Rhett Lashlee would like to name a starting quarterback in mid-August
-OR-
Just another summer at Auburn


Quote
"The most important thing is getting it right," Lashlee said Friday. "If you get it right, everything else will fall in place. What you don't want to do is try to rush to get it done so quick that you get it wrong."

Incumbents Jonathan Wallace and Kiehl Frazier will face off against newcomers Nick Marshall and Jeremy Johnson...

They tried that crap with Cam back in '10 and Cecil, Sr. made it clear, "It's not too late, to go back to State."

Dan Mullen claims he is going old school and will put his QB Tyler Russell center. Russell has rarely if ever taken snaps under center, not even in high school.

Hat tip: Brad Locke, Tupelo


Mark Calaway went old school on Heidenreich while entertaining our troops in Iraq.

Ja'Wuan James and Antonio "Tiny" Richardson don't seem to be sweating the Volunteers' unknown at quarterback.

they've been able to see plenty of all four -- junior Justin Worley, redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman and freshmen Riley Ferguson and Josh Dobbs -- this summer.


Quote
"You see Worley grabbing the freshmen and you see Nate grabbing the freshmen and they're watching film together, teaching them still and not just shoving them to the side like, 'Hey, I'm going to have the edge over you.' I feel like it's a healthy competition."

"I like the progress Justin has made and Nathan has made," Jones added, "and I'm excited to see what the two freshmen bring to the table when we start camp."

"Justin's been in it," James said. "I think his first game starting was South Carolina [as a freshman in 2010], so he's been in the SEC. He's played those three or four games, so you would have to say he has experience because he's been in the fire, but everybody's just competing. Whoever wins it, we're going to make sure they're comfortable."

Richardson noted the arm strength of the two freshmen before applying a disclaimer.

"Cannons. Those boys can throw the ball, and they can run," he said. "For this spread offense, I think that they're made for it, but you know just because you're made for it doesn't mean [anything]. They're freshmen, they've got to get implemented to the system."

Dobbs was noted for being smart, learning the playbook already, taking sophomore classes.

Auburn skill players say quarterback race 'as wide open as it's ever been'

http://www.al.com/auburnfootball/index.ssf/2013/07/auburn_skill_players_say_quart.html

CJ Uzoman and Jay Prosch won't give anyone the nod. Rhett Lashlee gave details on how the QBs are doing in pre fall camp workouts before noting that he is not supposed to attend these workouts.

What's the latest with the situation at quarterback? What happens if Nick Marshall doesn't snag the job like many are hoping/expecting?

Quote
If anybody knows who's got the lead in that race, they're not telling, and Auburn's players have been careful to praise all four when asked questions about the summer. Marshall may be the answer, but if he's not, the race really is wide-open. Jonathan Wallace seemed a little more poised and decisive during the spring game, Kiehl Frazier has the most history in the system and Jeremy Johnson has what Malzahn has called an "NFL-type" arm.

After a seeing a near daily article insisting Driskel is going to be fine, just fine, with the only break being his MLB draft position...

Driskel Undergoes Appendectomy at Shands


Quote
“Jeff had acute appendicitis and fortunately the medical staff caught it very quickly,” said Muschamp. “His surgery went well and how long he is out will be determined by how his body responds, which could be two weeks.”

Driskel, a 6-4, 237-pound junior from Oviedo, is the Gators’ starting quarterback heading into the 2013 season.

If Soph. Jalen Whitlow is not No. 1 QB, Stoops says there will be place for him to play.

http://vaughtsviews.com/if-whitlow-is-not-no-1-qb-stoops-says-there-will-be-place-for-him-to-play

Guessing WR. 

Stoops is another new head coach, in analysis paralysis, evaluating every snap of four QBs since he arrived on campus. Not ready to commit.

Pinkel is going with senior James Franklin to start at quarterback for the Tigers.

Pinkel said Franklin, who was dogged by injuries last season, beat out redshirt freshman Maty Mauk for the job. He felt it was important to make an announcement well ahead of the Aug. 31 opener against Murray State Mafia.

Three games into his first season as UT coach, Jones has declared the quarterback position again open to competition. What’s past is prologue. Staying the course at quarterback after the 59-14 debacle at Oregon is suicidal entering SEC competition. And Jones knows it.

“Whatever quarterback has the best week of practice is going to be the starter for Tennessee when we play Florida,” Jones said.

He didn’t say Worley is out, but he didn’t have to.


Quote
“We just need to find ways to generate big, explosive plays,” Jones said. “If that’s Josh Dobbs running the read option or Riley Ferguson, that’s what we’ll do. But we have to create big plays, and that’s going to be a focus of preparation this week.”

In three games this season, Worley has proved to be a reluctant runner — at best.

Worley, a 5.6-rated Rock Hill pro-style QB was the 2011 Gatorade High School national player of the year.

UK switched back to their dual threat QB, Jalen Whitlow at South Carolina.

Whitlow was 17-24 for 178 and 2 TDs. He ran for 69 net yards on 17 rushes/tackles for loss and scored a TD on the ground.

The next controversy is not who should start but whether to burn a red shirt. SEC QBs at schools not named Bama, LSU, UGa, and SC are being laid out like cord wood.

Starting quarterback Jalen Whitlow is out with an injured ankle. How long? No one knows for sure and if they do, they aren’t saying.

Whitlow will probably not be back in time for the game at Mississippi State next Thursday, October 24.

So Maxwell Smith is once again the starter. Smith needs a backup, however, and the two prime candidates — sophomore Patrick Towles and true freshman Reese Phillips — are quarterbacks that UK has to this point planned on redshirting.


Patrick Towles was an in-state hero who edged out Zeke Pike for Player of the Year in their graduating class.  His family bugged Joker to play him as a true freshman, he suffered a season-ending injury.  He was 5-5 with a TD pass on his first drive in his first game but was sacked later in the half by a State defender.

In what may well have been the pivotal game of Maxwell Smith's Kentucky career, the UK quarterback had a chance to play the hero.

It didn't happen.


Quote
Yet on a fourth-and-7 from the MSU 29 with 21 seconds left, the redshirt sophomore from Granada Hills, Calif., sailed a pass high over the head of a well-covered Alexander Montgomery.

When he did, it meant that for the fifth straight season, Mississippi State (4-3, 1-2 SEC) had beaten Kentucky. This time, it was 28-22 before an announced crowd of 55,102 in Davis Wade Stadium and an ESPN Thursday night national TV audience.

Said Smith: "We just didn't execute tonight."

For UK's Smith — who just last season seemed poised to pick up the baton passed from Couch to Lorenzen to Woodson and be the next standout Kentucky quarterback — this may have been his last, best chance to re-assert a claim on the Cats starting job.

After an early season filled with alternating UK quarterbacks, Jalen Whitlow appeared to secure the starting QB job with a strong effort at South Carolina two games back. However the dual-threat sophomore was sidelined on the second series of UK's loss to Alabama by an ankle sprain.

That gave Smith another shot, and carried a bit of irony. Injuries ended Smith's 2011 (shoulder) and 2012 (shoulder, ankle) seasons and their after effects may explain why he's not been the same QB in 2013.

After Mississippi State gave UK two points with a safety when the Bulldogs whiffed on a punt snap in the Kentucky end zone in the third quarter, Stoops and Wildcats offensive coordinator Neal Brown inserted Whitlow into the game at QB even though the pre-game hope was not to use him.

"I talked to him at half and told him we needed him to go," Stoops said. "We needed him to step up and play with his ankle hurting."

Whitlow led a quick five-play TD drive that got Kentucky within 21-19.

Brown said after the game that Whitlow's bum ankle and limited practice time since the injury meant the QB could not give UK much beyond what he did on the one drive.

They inserted Whitlow earlier in a third and long situation and he ran a QB draw. With the bum ankle he got nothing.

Tennessee quarterback Justin Worley won a four-man battle in preseason training camp for the starting quarterback job and started the first three games, then was benched in favor of Nate Peterman for the Florida game on Sept. 21 but came in that day in relief of Peterman and played well.

Worley has started every game since then and the Volunteers as a team are picking up some steam, losing a heartbreaker in overtime to Georgia before turning around and upsetting a top-25 team, South Carolina, 23-21 last week. Worley was hit as he delivered a 39-yard completion to Marquez North, one that North caught one-handed and pinned to his helmet, to help get the Vols into field-goal range or the game-winning points (sic).

Vols QB Worley out indefinitely with injured thumb

Butch Jones announced the severity of Worley's injury after Tuesday's practice and said he believes Worley has a torn ligament. Knoxville radio station WNML had reported earlier Tuesday that Worley would miss about four weeks.

Worley's injury means freshman Joshua Dobbs will make his first career start Saturday when Tennessee (4-4, 1-3 SEC) plays at No. 10 Missouri (7-1, 3-1).

http://www.al.com/sec/index.ssf/2013/10/sec_football_vols_qb_worley_ou.html


There has been not as much controversy as attrition with SEC QBs this season, with McCarron, Mettenberger, and Murray so far immune.

Health is still an issue for quarterbacks at Missouri and South Carolina.

While Missouri coach Gary Pinkel upgraded the status of senior quarterback James Franklin (shoulder) to questionable on Monday, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said starter Connor Shaw has missed practice because of the same virus that kept him out of the start of last week's Missouri game.

"I don't know exactly what our trainer's calling it, but he's sick," Spurrier said.

Scarblog: Will Nick Marshall become the second best QB Malzahn has coached?

Quote
If you ranked Malzahn’s quarterbacks from his first year in college as the Arkansas offensive coordinator in 2006 to this season as the Auburn head coach, Marshall probably wouldn’t make the top three.

The way Marshall’s development is trending, he could rise as high as No. 2 on the Malzahn quarterback chart. He may not get there this season, but it’s important to remember that he has an excellent chance to become the first starting QB Malzahn has coached in college for more than one season.

He’s ninth in the SEC in passing efficiency, 10th in passing yards per game and 13th in rushing. He’s 10th in total offense, less than a yard per game behind Alabama’s AJ McCarron.

The junior-college transfer also has played some of his best football against Auburn’s better opponents.

Johnson has shown some of his tremendous potential in extended playing time against Western Carolina and Florida Atlantic, but he hasn’t been asked to win a game against a conference opponent. He hasn’t been asked to take over the team on the road.

Auburn plays Arkansas at 5PM CDT on ESPN2.

Franklin could have played, and Mauk knew it  http://ow.ly/qrRoY

Quote
"We kind of scared him a little bit," Pinkel said after Missouri whipped Tennessee 31-3 Saturday night. "If anything got fuzzy, he was out of there."

Franklin, a senior, has missed three starts since injuring his shoulder early in the fourth quarter of a victory at Georgia. Mauk entered that game with Missouri up by only two points and finished off a 41-26 victory.

Pinkel was optimistic Franklin would be back next week. He thought Franklin could have played in a limited role if needed against Tennessee.

"I think he's going to be very close next week," Pinkel said. "We think it's very possible he'll be ready."

The more mobile yet banged up Jalen Whitlow has emerged as the starter for UK over pro-style QB Maxwell Smith. Both are sophomores.

For Mizzou there are questions on whether to bring James Franklin back in against Kentucky or start with Freshman Maty Mauk.

It was not a season of great controversy but rather attrition:

1. A&M: They hold their collective breaths every time Football is slow to get up.

2. LSU: Has another QB taken a snap beside Mettenberger? Big game tomorrow on the road.

3. Bama: Note to QB prospects not concerned about being labelled a "game manager": They protect McCarron. The biggest contact he has had was from C Barrett Jones in the BCS-NC.

4. SC: Ball Coach tries to make a QB controversy but that ended for good when Shaw brought them back against Mizzou and will never have to buy a cold beverage again in Columbia.

5. Mizzou: Publicly managing potential controversy well. The only question is whether to bring Franklin back for UK or stay with Mauk. You can make in-game changes. Mauk gets All-SEC Freshman QB.

6. UGa: Murray has given them four good years. He helped beat Florida to take the heat off his coach.

7. Vandy: Carta-Samuels is out with injury and his name continues to be attached as an alleged accessory in the rape case, though not charged. Robinette's QB rating is in the Worley - Allen neighborhood.

8. Auburn: You can run out of the HUNH. The former UGa DB seems a good fit when not banged up.

9. Ole Miss: Bo Wallace got whipped by some frat boys before his first game. He's gotten better protection this season and Barry Brunetti has been saved for WildBlackBear formations.

10. UK: A more mobile even when banged up, Jalen Whitlow emerged as the starter among the three sophomores.  UK struggles to become QBU (Coach, Bonner, Lorenzen, Woodson) again.

11. Florida: Hogs made Driskel's injury look more fortunate than it really was as the most common first name for an SEC QB in the last five years, Tyler Murphy toils.

12. State: Tyler Russell is still nursing an injury and Dak Prescott fights through the grief of losing his mother to cancer down the stretch.

13. Vols: Tyler Bray apparently not only was into hilarity and hijinks, he was into cash. Tennessee is still missing that arm. With Justin Worley out, they burned the redshirt of freshman Dobbs.

14. Hogs: In some places the backup QB is the most popular guy on campus. Hogs' coaches and players continue to encourage and support Brandon Allen, their best chance to snap an SEC losing streak.

ESPN Sports Center had a short segment titled "Mizzou QB Controversy" yesterday afternoon.

The formerly injured senior replaces the red shirt freshman who stepped up in his absence.

Austyn Carta-Samuels came back last week. This week, James Franklin will be back, too. Tyler Murphy doesn't know yet. And who knows what's going on at Mississippi State.

The 2013 season has seen over half the SEC's teams go to backup quarterbacks at some point in the season due to an injury to the starter. Many of those teams are getting healthy at the position, but some still face uncertainty in Week 11.

MSU coach Dan Mullen said Wednesday that while "they're all doing much, much better," a decision on a starter won't likely be made until warm-ups on Saturday. "We've got to see who's the healthiest and who's had the best week of practice," he said. "I'll know game-time, after warm-ups on game day."

Mullen said he thinks such uncertainty creates more problems for opposing defenses than his own team.
