He then announced that Dayne Crist would replace incumbent Tommy Rees to begin the season (in two Saturdays. I'm actually surprised it was this difficult of a decision for Kelly, but I'm glad that it was because Dayne Crist has been injured in the past. Kelly feels that all four quarterbacks are good enough to play which is a bit different from last year. Hopefully Everett Golson redshirts (or surpasses Andrew Hendrix) and we can spread out the quarterbacks a bit as it doesn't look like a new QB will be coming in February.
Other depth chart moves; Dan Fox is starting ahead of Carlo Calabrese, but this might have more to do with running quarterbacks the first two weeks and Carlo's lack of being fast. Jamoris Slaughter has regained the starting safety spot from Zeke Motta.
9 more days until South Florida. Hopefully post explosion before then. We'll see.
