What will happen is they'll understand quickly that unless they do buy in they won't be playing. That's a hundred percent on that statement.

It's going to take a lot of work on his part. He is going to have to be patient and listen to me.

He's playing at a much better tempo. We've solved a lot of his problems with his footwork, which is making him throw the ball better. He's throwing the ball with more confidence. I like what I'm seeing.

This raises the bar for us.

I'm really pleased that Erik Ainge as the starter is taking the reps. He's never had that opportunity. He's playing at a much better tempo.

Erik Ainge has played, so he is our No. 1 quarterback as we start the spring. Erik has done some good things at Tennessee, but the fact is we don't have a proven quarterback. He has good enough feet and a good enough arm to play the position. But there is a lot more to it than that.

You never know in these tough situations whether you are doing the right thing or not.

Our players and coaches loved it.

That's probably the one position that has stayed the same the most over that period of time.
