Re: Riley Ferguson leaving Tennessee
I was listening to talk radio this morning here in East TN about this....it seems like Ferguson was not putting in the time necessary to excel. He did not rehab his injuries last year as well as he should have and this summer he elected to skip several things including a trip to California to work with that QB guru while Dobbs and Worley went out there. It sounds like the kid was who Jones thought would be starting this year by the end of the month of August but his lack of work ethic has left him looking elsewhere. IMO, it is not a huge loss for UT at this point unless they can not protect their QB and Worley and or Dobbs goes down.
On a side note, it sounds like Dobbs has done a good job of bulking up this off season and has put on some much needed weight to be able to be a full time starter in the SEC. IMO, this all will make Worley the starter against Utah St but I would not be surprised to see Dobbs get meaningful time in that game and or the Arkansas St game to solidify the starter heading into SEC action.
BTW for those who don't think this matters to USC fans, just remember UT beat us last year and we always struggle against them so instability and a short bench for UT at QB is pretty good for us...espeically when we play them in late October.
