I felt comfortable (and reassured) during G-Day when Logan Gray performed as well as he did. It was apparent to most that he had not supplanted Cox as the #1 (as expected), but had shown enough of a different dimension that would lead him to the center of the huddle during certain situations this fall.
I'm even more encouraged now that we're hearing things like this:
It's nice to have a great Spring. It's even better to follow up a great Spring with an impressive Summer and impassioned August. A few weeks ago we assessed the shaven heads in terms of snaps in-season. In relation to the QB position, it seems Murray is ahead of roomie Mett in terms of readiness. Assuming that holds true, wouldn't mind seeing #11 play some against Tenn Tech.
But Logan Gray can play...he can move the chains, and he can put some points on the board. Points that may just make a difference between winning and losing.
Some other news and notes out of Woodruff Saturday:
- From BulldogsBlog: Ealey has a hyperextended elbow; CMR says it'll be ok. Sanders Commings had a pick-six and the team had 22 players on the Dean's list, 79 to earn a 3.0; Casey Nickells earned a scholly after three years of walking on.
- CMR has a sheriff's badge.
- From Tyler Estep: Troupe left practice Saturday with an ice pack on his thigh; while Curran and Gamble impressed Jancek with their muscle memory.
- We won't see him until Fayetteville, but Houston's got no problem.
