Well it isn't as if Vad isn't being pushed by the coaches and staff to be the face of the team, which he is. My understanding is JT is a quiet dude, not in a standoffish way though, just more laid back. Vad is just more outgoing. As far as the QB competition, Vad loses his job three ways:
1. In camp outright
2. Through injury
3. He stinks up the joint
There is NO way you take away the starting position from a kid or any player if they are successful on the field.
wouldn't it be similar to last year? vad starts the season. jt gets some chances. and if he proves he can handle it, at some point in the season, jt will begin getting the 3rd and 4th drives to determine which qb gets the rest of the game.
Then let's hope for tech's sake that vad starts every game and takes most of the snaps this season. Given jt's athleticism, you'd think that they could devise some plays where both qbs can get in the game at the same time.Last year, it was more of Tevin's consistent mistakes that forced CPJ's hand than Vad proving he can handle it. I remember the breaking point: 3rd quarter of the BYU game. We were only down by 10 points or something until Tevin threw an INT.
After that game, the Tevin 2-series and Vad 2-series started. Before that, Vad only came in when the game was pretty much decided either way.

Man, that was such a beautifully designed play. I can imagine their pass rushers all thinking "wait... a... minute..." and by that time, it was too late.
Considering that's what I was thinking when it happened I don't blame them. Normally I like to jump, yell and scream at the TV when at home watching a GT game. For that TD I calmly stood up and said "that was f*cking awesome." It was all execution. Laskey and everyone else went right, Sims blew past his blocking assignment to the left where Vad rolled out and it was pitch and catch. The beauty of that play is it was low risk. If Sims has someone guarding him and the pass isn't there, chuck the ball as hard as you can out of the endzone and stop the clock.
