BREAKING NEWS: Adams Named the Starter

ESPN.com's Chris Low is reporting that Coach Bobby Johnson has named Mackenzi Adams the starting quarterback when the Commodores travel to Athens this weekend...VSL Nation, is this the right decision?

The right call for sure. Over the past two games Mackenzi has come in off the bench and run the offense very efficiently. Nickson just hasn't been the same since he started suffering shoulder problems. He is inaccurate and his ball has lost some zip. He's a dangerous runner, but when defenses start stacking 8 guys in the box you're not going to break many big runs.

Mackenzi has proven to be an accurate passer in every game he's played. He's also been smart with the ball when he's been asked to run the show. Our defense can only help us out so long, and we need the offense to start producing. I think this is the right move at the right time, and it may pay dividends for us against Georgia.

def the right move. i still wish the frosh smith could get a chance but he's a frosh and adams is probably the best man for the job. take down the dawgs adams and all shall be forgiven and rewarded w/ a large crowd at homecoming.

At first I thought that waiting to announce the starter might be the right move strategically, but that doesn't fit with Bobby's character. On top of that, the quarterbacks aren't different enough to warrant a change in game plan from Georgia, so announcing now and getting the team ready with Mac is the way to go.

In response to the Larry Smith movement, I would much rather see Jared Funk get in and see what he can do instead of Larry. I know Funk doesn't have the speed or mobility that the other do, but he has a cannon, something the offense has lacked for the last two + seasons. We have talent at the receiver position, and I see Larry falling into the Chris trap and wasting the talent on the outside. Funk for starter in 2010.

Absolutely the right move. Nickson should have been taking out of the MSU game after the 3rd offensive series. Didn't CBJ learn anything from last year when he kept putting an ineffective/injured Nickson back in too early?

Since Nickson is Vandy's second leading rusher too bad they couldn't include them both in the offense on some plays in something similar to the "Wild Hog" formation that several teams copied from Houston Nutt.
