Brakes not break for Bray?

Dooley could start and finish with Simms in opener

Full event details »

Tennessee might need two quarterbacks to get through a season.

But it isn't making any plans to use that many when it kicks off this weekend.

Matt Simms is the official starter under center for the Vols, and though backup and true freshman Tyler Bray could take a few snaps against UT Martin on Saturday (TV: Pay-per-view; 6 p.m.), Derek Dooley won't go out of his way to make sure it happens.

"I'm going in (with) Matt as our quarterback," Dooley said. "I don't have any plan. We'll just let the game dictate what we do.

"(There's no urgency to get Bray in) if Matt's doing well. We'll make that determination on Saturday. You know, we've got to go out there and say, 'What do we have to do to win the football game?' That's all we need to worry about right now."

Assuming everything goes according to plan for the Vols and there's nothing to worry about in the second half against the Skyhawks, Bray almost certainly would have a chance to get some game experience. Considering how often Dooley has mentioned the likelihood of needing two quarterbacks to make it through the year, those plays could be invaluable for Bray as well.

But aside from a closer-than-expected score, the other factor that could influence UT's decision to plug in Bray or stick with Simms is that the latter isn't exactly flush with experience either. And while Simms expressed no concerns over sharing reps against UT Martin, the junior college transfer also wants as many as he can possibly get heading into more difficult tests with Oregon and Florida.

"I mean, the biggest thing for us right now, both me and Tyler, is we have to do whatever we have to do to help the team," Simms said. "If that's me stepping aside and getting him reps just in case, God forbid, anything happens, then that's fine.

"That's the situation that we know going into the season, and especially with me and him not really having many reps at the Division I level, we have to be prepared for those type of things."

Determining how much preparation and live work each needs is the trick, though UT certainly is placing a bigger emphasis on its starter.

A large part of the reason Simms was able to separate himself and win the job was his ability to understand the playbook, run the huddle and handle the speed of the game. That was mostly a product of experience, even if it didn't come in the SEC or with the Vols.

The best chance Bray might have of closing that gap and speeding up the learning process could be getting some action of his own - but there's no guarantee when it will happen or how much there will be.

"I tell you, Tyler Bray has done a good job," quarterbacks coach Darin Hinshaw said. "With his administration, he's got to keep coming along, he's got to keep coming along. Tyler has done a good job in being a true freshman and learning the offense and getting better from the first day of spring to where he is right now. He's done a good job, but he's got to continue to get in his playbook and continue to learn - and it's hard at that level.

"It's like riding a bike. You can go over it and over it on the board, and you can sit there and talk about it, but once you go ride the bike for the first time, you usually fall. That's just a normal aspect of learning."

The first test for the Vols is almost here. It remains to be seen if Bray will be taking it.

What ever happened to letting a freshman be a freshman? Seems like there is a huge rush to throw Bray to the lions before he's ready. I like CDD's approach on this one ... let him be ready before being thrown into service. Go Vols!

This plan does not make sense. Considering the lack of experience,skill and depth on the offensive line, the VOLS are going almost certainly need two QBs this season and what game would be better to get Bray some experience?

to a new head coach this game isnt considered a blow out he cant think that way and cant talk that way he just needs to win and he probaly knows he will blow them out and both qb,s will play but he aint going to tell us.

There's a bit of urgency because with a rookie line, it is inevitable that Simms is going to take some shots. It makes more sense for Bray to take his first snaps against UTM instead of Oregon or Florida.

While I agree the Martin game should be a good opportunity to involve Bray in a series or two, I think that it is more important that our starter gets almost all the work. Simms is our priority. Getting his game timing and adjustments down with our receivers as well as making all the proper line calls and reads is crucial for him this week. I think that Simms needs the confidence of being game ready come Oregon and Florida more than Bray. I would like to see the offense moving with a good flow and chemistry by the second third and fourth quarters on Saturday. If Bray gets to play a little then good, but I think Simms should be our main focus this Saturday.

That is a BIG FOR SURE, LOL! IMO, Tyler will play a lot in the 2nd half against Martin!

My prediction, UT 48 - Martin 6. If this occurs Tyler will see plenty of action. CDD knows what he wants to do and I bet it's the right thing!

GO VOLS, WE ARE UT!

Why should simms be our main focus saturday ? Bray should be in as much as possible and the reason i say that is what if simms plays the whole game against UTM and gets hurt early in the florida game ? Answer bray goes in with no experiance at all in division 1 ball against 1 of the best teams in the nation . So i hope he gets to play atleast 4th quarter .

Bray may have the better arm and tools but Simms will be the starter unless he comes out throwing 4 INT's..With the ducks and lizards coming up Simms needs game reps;I kind of doubt that the offense is comfortable with more than 75% of Chaney's play book..With all the changes and youth thats normal.It's no secret that Dooley is going to unleash Poole and Oku

If Simms turns out to be an interception king this season, then Bray may earn a start or two.
If Simms plays well enough to keep his job, then Bray will likely never be a full time starter.
If Simms plays well enough to remain the starter this entire season, then he will also be the starter next season. Worley will red-shirt next season and Bray will be the back-up. Once Simms graduates, then WOrley will likely earn the starting position and Bray will be a back up the rest of his career.
Bray's only chance to be a full time starter is for Simms to struggle mightily this season or for Simms to get injured. If not he will be a second stringer this year and next year to Simms and will lose the competition to WOrley in 2013 and 2014.

Bogus writes:

Seems like alot of people are over-analyzing what Dooley said. The plan, first and foremost, is to win the game. That means Simms is going to get the most reps. However, if you see us up by 35 pts. in the third or fourth quarter, we'll see Bray. If it's too close, we won't. That's what I think he's saying by letting the game dictate what their decision will be. They both need game reps, and they'll come. I, for one, am not panicking over whether or not we'll see Bray. He's gonna get his snaps (and hopefully a TD or two).

Bray getting 2 or 3 series is typical of what any head coach would do with a #2 QB..One quarter of playing time for Bray isn't going to make him game ready against a top#10 opponent

The entire 1st team needs to get on the same page as much as possible, check-offs, reads, audibles, the whole she-bang. There are many things to work out with the whole team, not just 2 QB's.
I'm all for Tyler getting his reps but the team needs to build it's confidence first.
Go VOLS!!!!!

Tyler needs to transfer and do it now. Simms may be the world's greatest huddler, but he can't play. If Dooley wants Tyler to sit on the bench and watch a klutz, Tyler needs to leave. Simms is Rick Clausen redeaux.

I believe, that even if, God forbid, Simms has a horrible game, and Bray comes in and plays lights out I believe that Simms still goes into game 2 as the starter for the same reasons he is starting game 1.

OwensboroVol writes:

Tyler, don't get disappointed YOU ARE OUR QUARTERBACK OF THE FUTURE. If not this game, its just a matter of time until you are going to go out there and stay. You really don't know how good you are. You are the only quarterback I can remember actually seriously challenging for playing time as true freshmen in Camp. Maybe Eric Ainge but even Peyton was not scheduled to be the quarterback, Jerry Colquit was. Casey Clausen wasn't penciled in as a starter until, like Peyton, circumstances required it. So you just pat yourself on the back and say to yourself that you've already done something a lot of others didn't.

Did anyone watch the O/W game? Bray needs a little experience and he will be another great one for UT. He is only a kid out of HS and his has one hell of an arm. Nothing against Simms as he has his moments but Tyler will leave UT with a name people out side of Tennesse will remember.

I have been reading all these posts and I have come to one overwhelming conclusion! Most of you have never played a down of football in your life, except maybe in your back yard dreamland.

I have both played and coach now and I have to say there are allot of armchair QB's here that pretend to know everything!

Let things play out and stop over analyzing every statement made. Good grief! Simms along with the ones Offense need all the game experience we can throw at them. We have a hard schedule early and need good decision makers to have a chance to win them. Later in the season once things are a little easier Bray will be playing more. As long as we can limit injuries we will fair well. Dooley knows Bray needs reps, every coach in the country knows that given the same situation!

OrangePsyched writes:

We need to impose our will early against UTM. If we have any turnovers or allow them a big play early it could be a long frustrating day. I don't think defeat is a possibility, but it could be close and frustrating. I hope that we drop the hammer and this time next week are talking positive about the Oregon matchup. Let's make some noise. ROCKY TOP!

totoiv writes:

I am going to be curious to see Simms in action. I thought in the Spring game he was absolutely terrible. Bray was way better. Because of Dooley's closed scrimages and practices we only have the coaches spin on Simms progress. Everything Dooley says about Simms progress seems logical, but - man - in the Orange & White game he was nervous, had happy feet, threw the ball early and off timing, ran with the ball unprotected, and threw into triple coverage. This will be an amazing transformance. As a UT Fan I am going to throw my support 100% behind Simms and wish him well. I want him to succeed, we need him to succeed. But, there is a little crack of doubt, that tells me we will be in the middle of a QB controversy after Florida.

Thank you, Vol Fan atic,

Good grief, we haven't taken the first snap and someone has suggested Tyler transfer. I am not believing some of the stuff I read here. Sir, glad to hear from someone who has played the game and coached the game.

What do we have on the coaching staff.............8 or 10 etc? Here, we have about 50 unofficial coaches,
and I didn't mean you, because you have paid your dues.

Thanks and Go Vols Saturday !

you know sometimes thinks click and a guy with buttloads of talent comes into his own. You have no idea what Matt is capable of. Just because he had a lousy spring (learning curve...been there done that) and got into some trouble and didn't work out at Louisville (young kid trying to adjust...been there done that) doesn't mean the guy isn't talented. He was the #20 QB out of high school in 08(Bray was #17 last year)...and he grew up with an NFL dad. Matt's capable, he just needs the stage to be set and he will play.

The way I see it in a perfect world is Simms starts, plays well, and Bray gets adequate playing time. In the spring of 11, it becomes a whole new ballgame as these two will compete for the starting position while being pushed by Worley (competition is a good thing). Next season, we have two very good QBs while Worley redshirts. Two years from now, Simms will be gone, Bray starts as a junior, and Worley backs up as a redshirt freshman. Two years beyond that, Worley starts as a junior and grabs us a couple of championships...if Bray doesn't get there first...and all is...well...good!

CroKev writes:

Anybody heard anything about Nash? Will he redshirt?

I heard a lot about all the zip Simms has on his passes over the summer. But I have to admit that his never surpassing 50% in his completions during scrimmages has me concerned. Certainly, CDD will play Bray for at least 2 series in the 2nd half whether it's close or a blowout.

DannyVol writes:

Yet another idiotic headline. Anyway...

As our coach stated the game will dictate what happens. No need in speculating or second-guessing when the coach doesn't even fully know what he has with either guy -- no one would at this point in time.

Simms is the starter for now and Bray will get some PT this year. Worley is the one to watch in the future, though.

Don't you think the Vols should play the Ducks before worrying about an injury in the Florida game. This Vol team cannot and I repeat cannot look past any team on their schedule. GO VOLS

I know it's getting late and you're tired so you forgot the schedule. Oregon comes b4 alligator shoes team.

On topic, Bray will get a few series in the fourth qtr as any coach would do if his team is up. comfortably

I totally disagree! Simms is more mobile, has a stronger arm and has command of the offense. Rick Clasuen had a rag arm, was sssssllllllloooooowwwwwwwww and had a couple good games because he could "manage" games. Matt Simms will be fine and T. Bray will be a good one (QB) in time. After all, he is still a freshman! GO VOLS!

Nope...I said pretty much the same thing above. A perfect world (which we know it isn't) would be:

`10 - Simms manages while Bray gets college and SEC ready.
`11 - Battle for the starting job in Spring and Summer. If Simms wins it, Bray will continue to backup as a Soph. Worley pushes the comp but ends up redshirting.
`12 - Simms graduates, Bray is the clear cut starter as a junior but Worley pushes and actually makes Bray work hard to become a star. Worley is now a redshirt Frosh.
`13 - Bray is all SEC and potential AA as a senior. Worley is chompin at the bit but knows his year is next year.
`14 - Worley is the chosen one as a junior and plays two solid years leading the Vols to an SEC championship and NC. Meanwhile...who knows who is waiting in the wings...but rest assured...they will be a top level QB.

Peace and GBO!

I agree with you wholeheartedly! Neither QB has any experience at the D-1 level and it is imperative that the starting QB gets the most reps...if not all. Simms and Bray are both works in progress and we just have to go with the flow.My wish is that Simms would improve to the extent that we blow all opponents out and then Bray can take charge and gain the experience needed to adequately play the role of back-up QB.After all he is just one snap away from being the starter.

God bless America! I woke up to this nonsense this morning!!! With the exception of a few posts(Vol Fan Atic, Owensboro, & others), I can't believe what I'm reading. Are you people delusional? Hell, back2z1(gator fan) had probably the most reasonable post of them all, although it pains me to say it. Let's play a freakin game before you "experts" start evaluating talent and naming starters. You saw the Orange and White game. That's it! Rest has been closed practices & scrimmages!

First, cgbtn... ,or whatever your username is, is trolling. No Vol fan in their right mind would suggest Bray transfer with the amount of talent he has & the amount of time he has already invested in this program. Let him grow people! Physically & mentally.

Second, Rudy & A1A, I have some news for you. Whorley is still in high school. He had one good game the other day & you're already naming him as a starter for the Vols! Again, are you mental?! I understand he has VERBALLY commited to UT & he is a good QB, but don't think for one second that, as his stock rises, coaches around the country won't start plucking at him. Why don't you at least wait until he SIGNS to play for the Vols before you hand a kid in high school the starting job(after a redshirt season of course!)? I just find it absurd that you would prematurly deem Bray, who's already here investing time & energy and showing potential, merely second string material for the rest of his college career. It's ridiculous! I prefer to take a sound, logical, and patient approach to evaluating talent on our football team, & I sure as hell don't predict a future starter if they haven't even signed to play for our football team! Thank you once again Vol FAN atic for the logical post. No thank you Rudy for your burlesque evaluation & subsequent prediction of our quarterback situation from now until 2014. I'm not trying to bash you too much but it's kinda difficult. Let the kids play(and sign) before we determine the depth chart. Have a great day. I'm going to try to after reading this article & posts.

Hey Volchief...I never once made Worley a starter. I speculated based on the fact that cbgtn and a bunch of others were being defeatests and saying that Bray will never start and needs to transfer. Why don't you jump on those duds instead of someone who is trying to throw a positive light on the subject!

And I'm sorry, but if you don't speculate a little bit in life, then how in the heck to you plan for the future. I bet our great coaches are doing much of the same even considering none of these guys have played a down yet for the Vols! And if you would care to read my post a little more carefully...I did say "in a perfect world" these things could happen.

Like I said, why don't you jump on the trolls that are forever bashing instead of someone that has hope for the future of the Vols. And don't dare call me one of those that has set expectations so high that I'll be calling for Dooley's head when if it does't happen. I for one am the type that accepts facts and adapts to things when they don't go as planned, but for now there's nothing wrong with having a plan.

Peace and GBO!
