08:21 AM ET 08.20 | When Tennessee went with a "situational scrimmage" on Friday, they meant it. [Coaches] wanted players to encounter just about any situation that might occur in a real game. They didn't leave out the worst-case scenario: An injury to starting quarterback Tyler Bray. Bray went down Friday with a "sprained ankle," forcing backup Justin Worley onto the field for most of the scrimmage. Don't worry -- Bray and his ankle are fine. But the fake "injury" gave coach Derek Dooley an opportunity to see how Worley and the offense responded to sudden adversity. Bray departed, Worley entered and the offense didn't miss a beat. "Everybody reacted pretty well," Worley said. Except perhaps Bray. "Tyler was like, 'Man, don't jinx me,' " according to Worley.

So are they saying this guy is frail...since they are doing what if's maybe they should act like champions and learn a few courses of rocky top. I miss the old days of the wild boy's.

Some can really "fake" it, as most all of you can attest to, which does not include me, LOL.

I guess when you pay for it...its is considered acting and not faking!

I think over the last few years Tenn has had it share of dealing with offense responded to "sudden adversity" so why do they need the to practice this.

August 20, 2012  10:19 AM ET

Oh wait that was constant adversity which they are pro's at.

No, Dooley will fire himself around mid-season to see how the team responds to sudden adversity.
