Texas Tech has made it perfectly clear that, barring an unforeseen development, a starting quarterback will not be named coming out of spring practice. Just as obvious, though, is that Seth Doege is clearly ahead right now and the job will be his to lose come summer camp.
During the Red Raiders’ first scrimmage of the spring Friday, the junior-to-be did nothing change the latter sentiment.
Doege completed 17-of-26 passes for 246 yards and three touchdowns, numbers made even more impressive by the fact that head coach Tommy Tuberville intentionally stacked the deck against the presumptive starter.
“I though Doege played pretty well today,” Tuberville said in quotes released by the school. “We are expecting a lot from him. I intentionally put him against the wind just to see how he would handle it – and he did well.”
Interestingly, only one of the other QBs vying for the job was listed in the school’s recap, and that was true freshman and early enrollee Michael Brewer throwing for 15 yards and a touchdown.
