Having indicated that he was pleased with the play of the quarterbacks in today's scrimmage, Joker said that he could be “coming out of this thing with some type of decision (about a starter) hopefully tomorrow,” but more evaluation could be necessary.   

“We have to make sure we take a look at this and be fair to everybody involved,” Phillips said.  “It’s hard to say now that we have a decision, we’ve already come up with a decision.  To be fair to this football team and to the guys involved, we have to go watch the film.  Sometimes (when) you’re out here with the naked eye, it’s hard to evaluate.”

Offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Randy Sanders also was asked his thoughts on the position.

“I thought they (the quarterbacks) are progressing as they should progress,” Sanders said.  “Usually you make a lot of improvement, especially at quarterback, from the first scrimmage to the second.  I’m not watching how they drop (back to pass), I’m trying to watch down field to see what they’re seeing and for the most part the ball was coming out to who it should have been coming out to, when it should have been coming out of their hand, so that tells me that their drops are pretty good, their eyes are in the right place...

“The one thing we are doing as a group right now, pretty much, is throwing the ball accurately.  Most of time they’re throwing the ball where they want to, which usually correlates back to your fundamentals.  If your fundamentals are good, it’s a lot easier to be consistent.”
