The great offseason question is around the Quarterback situation. We had terrible quarterback play this last year and it is no great secret. McCarney and his coaches brought in a few guys they think can help improve the position. DaMarcus Smith is a guy everyone thinks can beat out the incumbents. The problem is that he will not be participating in Spring Practice because … of reasons? It is a blow for him and maybe a chance for some of these other guys to get a step up. MGN favorite Dajon Williams was famously buried on the depth chart for having to skip practice.
A school spokesman confirmed on Friday afternoon that those plans have changed. Smith will still have a chance to compete for the starting job in the fall, but will miss what would have been valuable practice time in the spring. He is enrolled in classes at UNT.
