Yesterday, Mark Stoops said that the staff was going to give one quarterback more reps than the other in practice in an attempt to end the two-quarterback nightmare the team’s been going through. During the SEC Teleconference this afternoon, Stoops was asked if the quarterback who got more reps performed well in practice. Apparently not:
“You know what? No, to be honest with you. I’m a little disappointed. We gave one of the guys more reps yesterday and he really didn’t have a great practice. So, to be honest with you, it’s very frustrating. So, we’ve got to make a decision, but like I said before, I’m not going to panic and just name one just because we’re all frustrated and we’re not getting consistent play out of the quarterbacks. We need to find the right one, and I’m not very happy. I don’t think we’ve been very consistent there.
It’s been odd. Last week, we had one of our quarterbacks look lights out, threw the ball as good as he has since we’ve been here and goes in the game and doesn’t play as well as he should. Now we planned on going with one guy yesterday, and he goes out and just has a very average to below average practice. Overall, just not very pleased.
So, to answer your question, I don’t know what the heck we’re going to do. We’re going to evaluate it again today and see where we’re at. I think maybe we’ll go 50/50 and make a decision here either tonight or tomorrow.
