I will have a story in tomorrow’s paper and should have a video up some time in the morning covering the zinger to come out of practice today.
UNT’s quarterback race is down to three:
The field that originally contained Andrew McNulty, Josh Greer, Dajon Williams and Connor Means was cut to three after five practices.
Means is out of the running, at least in the short term.
I talked to Mike Canales about where things stand after practice.
Canales made a point of saying that Means is talented and will be a good player for UNT down the line.
One of the key factors that helped trim the field from four to three is experience — McNulty has been around a long time and knows UNT’s offense, Williams has been in the program a year and Greer started for a year at the junior college level.
I cut out on the live blog when UNT began scrimmaging late in practice.
A few general impressions from what went on:
– Greer really seemed to have a nice day. He hasn’t been around long, but seems to be getting more and more comfortable with each passing workout. He hit Carlos Harris for a 19-yard touchdown and connected with Marcus Smith over the middle on a nice ball. He had the most success moving the ball.
– While Greer might have had the best day overall, Williams and McNulty also had their moments. Williams pulled a ball down and scored on a 4-yard touchdown run. McNulty threw a swing pass that went for a long touchdown.
– The play of the day went to wide receiver John Chelf, who caught a pass from Williams that was thrown high and behind him in the end zone.
– Freddie Warner continued his comeback from injury and posted an interception.
