On Thursday morning, a local Knoxville radio host said, “Harrison Bailey could be the starting quarterback come week one.”
Houston Kress, the famous VolRumourMill, of 3&OUT gave Bailey a 50/50 chance of starting against South Carolina.
My phone was cutting out, but I think I heard Kress say, “Bailey was the next Peyton Manning.”
WOAH. WOAH. WOAH.
Kress is known to be a Vol homer on the show. He even predicted the Vols would win ten games if the ball bounced the right way last season.
Reports out of Wednesday’s practice was Bailey was the best quarterback on the field. He went from scout team to running with the twos.
IN ONE PRACTICE.
If Kress thinks Bailey can start week one, so do I.
