All the folks on Rocky Top get their quarterback controversy from a jar.

It looks like a serious quarterback controversy may be brewing up in Knoxville. Freshman QB Tyler Bray was reportedly getting extra practice with the Tennessee's first-team offense on Monday, while Matt Simms was on the sidelines watching. Simms was noticed limping off the field at the end of practice.
Though Bray's stats during his playing time in the loss to Alabama weren't impressive, Tennessee coach Derek Dooley seemed pleased with the progress of the freshman quarterback with the world's most notorious back tattoo.

“He got experience,” Dooley said. “I don’t think looking back we would have won the game had we not played him. He put together some nice drives late in the game and didn’t finish them off, which is what Matt did.”

As for Simms, he doesn't seem too pleased with sharing playing time with Bray. Saying "Yeah, [coaches] know exactly how I feel about that." Which means that things on Rocky Top might get a little more rocky.
