08:20 AM ET 04.08 | Even after the close of spring ball, Tennessee football coach Butch Jones is no closer to an answer. Having watched balls sail high and bounce low for two hours, [Jones] is still looking for his No. 1 quarterback. "They managed it (leading the team) well but we're still not there yet -- where they're fully in command with presence, in terms of barking out the cadence, the signals," Jones said Saturday following the Vols' second spring scrimmage at Neyland Stadium. "Really, the alpha male -- barking out down and distance; when something is wrong, getting you in the right formation. All those things. That comes with time, but we don't have time." Neither [Justin Worley nor Nathan Peterman] progressed in the battle to be Jones' alpha-male.

Calling Gunner Kiel. Mr. Kiel please report to Rocky Top. Your (next) school is waiting.

Butch is dangling the bait out there, seeing if Gunner is hungry. But he (Butch) better be careful what he wishes for, he just might get it -- and be sorry later.

No Gunner Kiel. He's neither Kosher nor Hallal.

The blurb mentions Worley and Petermen, not Page, Ashford, or Stocstill. There is more to come from UTK Spring ball.

Which is why he is a perfect fit for a "Bible Belt" school.

Sounds like the Vols are going to need a good fall camp before kickoff...on a brighter note, 3 COC QB's looked great during the spring game Saturday...
