Rebel QBs show no signs of separation

Ole Miss’ third quarterback competition in as many years hasn’t been pretty.

And it hasn’t been consistent, except for the fact Bo Wallace and Barry Brunetti have been anything but consistent.

There has been no way of predicting which of the quarterbacks will have a good day and which one will be off.

Following an inconsistent spring in which both former Tennessee prep standouts were adapting to a new system, first-year coach Hugh Freeze predicted the quarterback competition would extend past preseason camp and into the season.

Freeze’s thoughts on the competition have been right.

Saturday’s morning scrimmage on the practice field capped Ole Miss’ first week of preseason camp. It also brought another day of inconsistency.

Wallace completed 10 of 23 passes for 134 yards and one touchdown, but also threw two interceptions.

Likewise, Brunetti completed 12 of 24 passes for 76 yards while also turning the ball over twice (a third interception was nullified by a penalty). (August 13, 2012, Page 6)
