Chizik Speaks

Here are some highlights of Gene Chizik's meeting with the media today:
  • "There will be a battle at the quarterback position, and [Cam Newton will] be a part of that battle. May the best man win."
  • "Zac [Etheridge] is a day to day progression whether he can play again. But I feel very encouraged about the progress he has made."
  • "[Kodi Burns is] a wide receiver. He'll still play wildcat, but his predominant position is wide receiver"
  • Spring practice will be in the mornings this season. It will begin March 24. Practices will occur on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with possible scrimmages on Saturdays.
  • Daren Bates will not participate in spring contact after having shoulder surgery.
  • Mario Fannin, Eric Smith and Onterio McCalebb will fight it out for the tailback position in the spring. Dontae Aycock will be used in multiple roles.

  1. Are the practices going to be closed again this year? I did not hear anyone ask that question in the presser.
