He sounds a little nervous.
… Are you ready to begin season without a backup who has played QB during preseason? “It’s looking that way. It is scary. It’s scary starting any season with a new quarterback who hasn’t played a lot, which we will be and now you don’t have any depth at that position is scary, but that’s where we’ve got to as an offensive football team really depend on our offensive line this year and hopefully this is the year that we stay healthy and stay together and play like we think we can play.”
On what he would do if something happened to starter Aaron Murray in the first week or two: “I’d say naturally it would be Logan Gray. He’s got experience. He’s practiced that position for three years. …Unless the freshman comes out here and lights it up and we feel like `Hey, we’ve got something right here.’ You never know who would surprise you. If something happened, I’d probably say Logan right now.”
On freshman QB Hutson Mason: “Obviously we liked the kid, his ability and his makeup or we would never have recruited him and offered him a scholarship. I don’t want to put this on the guy and say you have to live up to this guy but he reminded me a lot of David Greene when we had him in camp last summer. I liked him then, but we just weren’t going to offer him at that time. …His head’s going to be spinning Day One because he could be running second-team huddle.”
Sure would be nice if ULaLa were a thirty-point blowout with the bench getting emptied in the third quarter.
