The Nick Stephens Era

Posted by Graham Kelly | 12:22 PM | | 0 comments »

Phil Fulmer finally benched John Crompton following his abysmal performance against Auburn two weeks ago. Nick Stephens, the redshirt-sophomore, got the start last Saturday against Northern Illinois. While not incredibly impressive, the Flower Mound, Texas native, did show impressive arm strength most notably on a 52-yard touchdown pass to Denarious Moore and throughout the night was much more accurate than Crompton had been all season. Hopefully, Stephens will continue to improve in practice this week because the Georgia defense will be nothing like the Northern Illinois Huskies. The formula for success this Saturday will be what it has had to be all season when it became apparent UT lacked a dynamic quarterback. Lean on the defense, establish the run, and don't turn the ball over.
