I like what I see with Poole/Williams anyway.

No turnovers.....huge.

Now for the inevitable scrimmage question.....

Did the offense look that good or did the defense look that bad? And why didn't EB play?

Nevermind the EB question. Duh.

Stepehens didn't throw a pass? Interesting.

True. I've been in his camp all along. Just wish he had more game experience.

The stats appear to indicate that Crompton turned the ball over by throwing an interception to Rogan. Stll great, however.

I question the posters saying BJ Colemon is the leader. BJ completed 8 more passes than Crompton but it was only 22 more yards. That's pretty bad. I am glad he is accurate but he is obviously dumping it off to the runningbacks and tight ends 1-5 yards down the field.

I saw BJ play 10 times at McCallie. He throws darts and takes care of the ball. He's got a good head on his shoulders. I've been pulling for him for a long time.

This may be true, but if he can do so consistently and without turnovers, then that is an improvement from last year, when even the dump pass would either be in the dirt or sailing into the Interceptosphere. BJ had fewer incompletions in more attempts. Let's see what the coaches surmise from these numbers before we pin hopes on anyone. We have a long way to go in the QB quest. Instant-gratification seekers will not find the leader of our offense. Settle in for the longer ride...

Well, look at it this way. If he is dumping for 1-5 yds per play, at least we can maybe get a 1st down every 3 plays. Get a bunch of 1st downs, and eventually, you'll see the end zone.

Comparing what they are doing in scrimmages this year isn't fair to comparing what they did last year. They are trying to simulate real games but it's still not a real game. More importantly, last years system was a piece of phooey. None of these quarterbacks were recruited for the spread and were struggling to learn the offense. I think they will all be far better in a pro style system because they are pro style quarterbacks. Hence recruiting Tajh Boyd this past offseason. Boyd is meant for the spread because he is a dual threat quarterback. I think when it's all said and done that Crompton will be the starter and will be more than capable of leading the team to at least 7 wins and as many as 9. Might as well because if Stephens or Colemon is the starter odds are they'll get benched for an incoming freshman quarterback next year.

Lol true but I don't think it'll be a problem with the spread gone. The players didn't understand it in their first year. None of the quarterbacks on the roster play the right style of football to be a quarterback in the spread. On top of it all, the spread isn't set up for running the ball which has been Tennessee's bread and butter for years. With a pro style offense I expect crisp routes, easier reads and better timing on the delivery. The running game is going to be killer. I am sure Hardesty will be good but between Brown or Oku one is bound to be a homerun threat.

Hard to say from a single scrimmage. That's the deal with a scrimmage, they're all on our team. If the defense is great, we're all concerned with the offense. If they do well, we worry about the defense. A single spring scrimmage is hardly worthy of making serious evaluations. The coaching staff has set up several for Spring and will repeat in the Fall. I trust their final evaluations will result over time and some positions may extend into the season. All said and done, the best will play.

I like what I am seeing out of Hancock and Poole, I think both are going to be standouts this year. I also like seeing Toney Williams pounding the rock! He really fits into CLK system, he aparently likes big backs and a smaller speedy back- hence Williams/Poole, and of coure Brown/Oku. Can you say "fresh legs", eh? Our running game is going to be sick, especially in 2010 and 2011 and 2012 and 2013 and.........!!! It's great to be a Tennessee Vol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

O-man, I agree that it is an important piece that our system is different this year. At the same time, the players are a year older with a year's worth of experiences, game-time, practice-time, drill-time, etc. I did not say that the scrimmage success compares to last year's game situations. I said that IF BJ could do that consistently, then that WOULD BE an improvement. Seems like you have some personal stake in Crompton-that's your business-being the guy this year. Rather than judging BJ's stats as "pretty bad" (your words), I again urge you to let the coaches surmise the numbers and the long-term search for our QB. Also, I don't follow your last point. Whether or not BJ or NS gets benched next year for a freshman does not validate Crompton starting this year.

if you're throwing 5 yd "dump passes", wouldn't that be better than an incompletion? all about BALL CONTROL! I'll take those chain movers over the occasional "big bomb" with multiple incompletions all day. Remember, if we are on offense, the other team CAN NOT SCORE.

For the Vol offense, any enthusiasm from its work on the scrimmage field Saturday afternoon was tempered thanks to the turnover bug that has been too rampant this week. In short-yardage and clock-management work on Tuesday, the Vol backfield lost two fumbles. On Thursday, the quarterbacks threw a couple of interceptions. Saturday, two fumbles lost and an interception stole the headlines for the offense.....from Volquest.

They'll get benched for an incoming Freshman? Wha? Those freshman starting QB's in the SEC are all over the place. Get real

You don't know any Marines because they do not associate with foreskins. However you would make good target practice at about 300 meters.

I'm a little concerned with BoBo's "Spike" production. It looks like he is letting Bill have too many opportunities when we know that Bill's lack of teamwork is tearing you apart. His "Saves" are WAY out of line in comparison to the rest of the team; and "Saves" are the true measure of teamwork. I would suggest that he either understands the goal of the system or find another one to play in...maybe Florida?
