Nobody's giving up on Milton. It was anticipated that injuries would be an issue for UT this year-- and they already are. Some guys will be playing dinged up as long as they can go and be rested when they can. We just don't have quality depth, and it's a long season with winnable games ahead. They can plan for two QBs and try to keep Bailey from portaling-- and they expected to do that.
I don't think garbage time with 3rd string OL is a good measurable to gage Bailey also since that was the first time he has seen game action since last year. Our only hope is if one our QB finally click and I am losing hope on that one. lol
I believe some of the blame for the overthrows has to be the defense in practice is much different that the defense in actual games. The game just has to slow down for Milton and then maybe he can connect on those throws.
For the life of me, I'm done with dragging our QB's down. It's making this place miserable. All I know is what I saw in person on Saturday, and that was a QB that did what he should have done against an outmanned opponent with an understaffed OL.
Peace out, y'all. You can have this miserable place.
When Milton arrived nearly every talking head that covers practice, including AP who seems to know more than anyone else who covers the team, was saying HB or Joe. That obviously changed in fall camp but it is beyond disingenuous to say he was third in spring before Milton even got here. Maurer was never in this competition
