    Bates looks to be in the lead

    Looks like to me Bates is with the number 1's

    QB Phillip Bates went 8-of-11 for 112 yards, including a 21-yard post-corner to WR Darius Darks and a 55-yard bomb to WR R.J. Sumrall. Bates also completed passes of 11 yards to WR Marquis Hamilton and 7 yards respectively to WR Joel Zitek and WR Alex Sandvig
    - QB Austen Arnaud went 7-of-9 for 51 yards, with a long of 18 yards to WR Justin Lillie. Arnaud also completed an 11-yard pass to Euseph Messiah, where the speedster made a defender miss in the open field for a first down as well as two more to WR Jason Carlson for 9 yards.

    Re: Bates looks to be in the lead

    That's just from that one practice. There have been several where AA was the leader. I'm guessing that it is still a coin toss and we wont know until the first game. I just hope that whoever wins out doesn't have a slow start - because I think the fan base is pretty evenly split on who they want to win it.

    I think we are going to see both in the first few games, possibly most of the season if no one can seperate themselves.

    Re: Bates looks to be in the lead

    How many practices have we had now???

    Not trying to compare things, but I'm sure Seneca's backups had better days of practice then Seneca did from time to time..

    I want the best man to win, but when looking at one day I can't draw any conclusions. AA has been better several times already.

    Maybe the average "Joe" like me can't see that.

    Re: Bates looks to be in the lead

    I'll take a QB who throws 7-9 or 11-12...both are excellent numbers. But the thing we have to question is what do they "the football team" want to give to the public about their practices.

    Re: Bates looks to be in the lead

    I don;t know why everyone is saying that they rotate? Chizik has said he "wants one QB... Period." maybe for the first game i could see them splitting time but whoever performs in that game will take over. Personally i hope it is Bates cuz I'm from Council Bluffs so i got a few chances to see him play across the river in Omaha.

    The ultimate thing i want to see is them to split time. FI one guy is in at QB put the other guy on the field at WR. I can imagine that Chiz could draw up some pretty good trick plays that you could utilize both of their talents. Both of them are great athletes and could play bothe QB and WR. plus in my opinion if Chiz gives the job to one guy and the other can't hold his own at WR, then i see the odd man out transfering because Tiller is right behind them and i honestly think that he sounds like the real deal.

    Re: Bates looks to be in the lead

    Yeah, boy, it's really hard to make these kind of predictions from one series of plays. 55 yard bomb to Summeral sounds good, but, was it the right read? Did it just so happen that R.J. got open on that play? How open? Did he get open for AA and he missed the read? Maybe he was covered while AA was in there. Who knows, maybe it was a bigger play by the receiver than the QB. There are so many more things that go into being QB besides big plays. So many reads, picking up defenses, etc. Don't get me wrong. I'd love to see these kinds of plays all the time. But, I wouldn't put too much salt in the bits and pieces of practice reports. I'll be really surprised, if by game 1, we have one clear cut starter. I just hope it's because both are doing so well, they couldn't choose.

    The poster above was saying they are rotating in practice, not that they will be rotating in games. I think everyone is well aware that Chizik wants one guy.

    Re: Bates looks to be in the lead

    Hypothetically, if AA wins the QB battle and Bates is willing to change positions, does Tiller still redshirt or do we waist a year of eligibility to be the #2?

    Lord called and said no.
