All four of Tennessee's quarterbacks performed well in the Orange and White game, especially Josh Dobbs.
He completed nearly all of his passes, and he had the longest run from scrimmage.
  Scary to think what Josh Dobbs numbers would have been if he had taken all the snaps at quarterback during the spring game.
He was 6-9 for 199 yards, plus a 59-yard scoring run.
Said head coach Butch Jones,"Josh is very calm. He has a calm demeanor about himself. Very cerebral, which we all know. I thought he took some steps forward. It was great to see today."
Said Dobbs,"It was a good performance. I thought I did a good job executing the plays. That's something I've been working on this spring. Got to make sure I continue to do that."
  Dobbs also threw the deep ball well. He was asked if his arm is now stronger.
"I feel like I have gotten stronger. Coach Lawson has done a great job in the weight room of pushing us hard."
  Three of UT's receivers are 6'3 or taller, and Dobbs loves having targets that big.
"Honestly, that's a quarterback's best friend. Bodies and you are just able to throw the ball up and know that they are going to come down with it, or no one's going to come down with it."
  To top off his spring performance, Dobbs also beat the other quarterbacks in the skills challenge.
Reporter-"So Josh won that skills thing. Does he get bragging rights against you guys?"
Said quarterback Riley Ferguson,"I don't know. I don't know what he gets. If he wants to call it bragging rights he can."
  Despite Dobbs performance, Coach Jones is not ready to name a starting quarterback.
"Ongoing. No time table."
