Tuberville previews The Big Scrimmage
- It'll include "80 to 100 plays" ... not including special-teams work.
- It won't include WR Mario Fannin (hamstring), TB Tristan Davis (foot) or Sen'Derrick Marks, whom Tuberville said needs rest. I suspect TB Brad Lester (ankle) could be out of action as well.
- TB Ben Tate apparently is fine. He's playing on Saturday. He was working on the side yesterday with those guys listed above (in addition to Big Snacks Berry), but I guess Tate's injury was less significant.
- Watching Tate and Berry work some shuttle runs together Thursday afternoon may have been my 2008 highlight so far. Talk about an odd couple.
- Tuberville likes DE Jomarcus Savage a lot and thinks he may play this year.
- The Top Two Quarterbacks will play the first half. Neil Caudle and Barrett Trotter will duke it out (I think I'm being alliterative) during the second half for those coveted third-team offense duties.
