They must have planned this QB battle pose.
Couldn’t make it out to Fan Day? We’ve got you covered with photos from Regina Rickert and later, we’ll have a full Fan Day breakdown from our own Nick Roush, who of course will discuss the quarterback competition on everyone’s mind. Here’s a preview–Jalen Whitlow looked crisp and confident, Max Smith, not so much.
The actual game-play may not have been up to par with the team suiting up in Commonwealth for the first time since the spring game, but Coach Stoops didn’t want the weather, schedule, or location to be an excuse, saying “it’s just not acceptable practice.”
But it wasn’t all doom and gloom, Stoops admitted “We’re a lot better right now even though, again, this wasn’t one of our better practices. That’s why we practice: We need to get better. But overall we’re executing better than in the spring by far.”
But this day was about the fans who, despite the weather, lined up to get autographs that the coaches and players signed for over an hour.
Tight ends Jordan Aumiller and Tyler Robinson sign autographs.
