— Joker Phillips joined ESPN for a live chat earlier today. Here is some of the discussion in case you missed it:
Dear Coach Philips, What talents does your team have?
We think we have some young talented players along with some experienced guys that have been in our program for a long time. We are developing some more playmakers at the skill positions which should give us some chances to have production on both sides of the ball.
Are you happy with your starting QB?
We have a QB competition. We have two quality guys that have played a lot of snaps in this league. Two very very talented incoming freshmen.
We working on any fun and interesting wrinkles to the offense this year? One of reasons I think we had success against UT was that they weren’t prepared for our offensive scheme for that game.
We’re developing an offense that allows us to put people in position to make plays for us. We’re developing an offense where once the kids start to make plays, they have confidence and therefore they develop into playmakers for us.
