Matt Hinton’s prediction of how Spurrier will deploy his quarterback tandem strikes me as, well… just about perfect:
Best guess: They’re both gonna play. Garcia will start against USM, but in grand Spurrier fashion, Shaw will see extended action, look underwhelming, and yield to Garcia for the next month or so, until Spurrier gets exasperated again. Rinse, lather and repeat throughout the year, with Garcia taking three-fourths of the snaps but yielding to Shaw for extended periods of time, and possibly a start or two at most. But Spurrier has never shown much patience with anything less than a Heisman-worthy effort from his starter, and this doesn’t seem like any place to start.
Apply. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
