Jones names Guarantano UT starting quarterback

Redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano is expected to make his first career start Saturday against SC, and previous starter Quinten Dormady is considering his future with the program, multiple sources told GoVols247 on Tuesday morning and Tuesday afternoon.

The New Jersey native replaces junior Quinten Dormady, who has started all five games for the Vols so far this season.

Dormady, meanwhile, has thrown for 925 yards, six touchdowns and six interceptions.

Head coach Butch Jones and the Tennessee Volunteers are still looking for their first SEC victory. He's tossed six touchdown passes but he's also thrown six interceptions. "The scheme is the scheme, the scheme is in place, so it's more just I think Jarrett has earned that right and that opportunity".

"We're not going to hide from that", Scott said.

Guarantano had lost a preseason competition with Dormady for the starting spot. It was all over the national TV and everywhere like that.

Maharashtra slashes Value-Added Tax , fuel gets cheaper
Almost half the current price of petrol and diesel is attributable to taxes imposed by the Central and the state government. While in Gujarat it was lowered by 4%, Maharashtra cut the price on petrol and diesel by Rs 2 and Re 1 per litre.

Scott added that Guarantano has come a long way since. In hindsight, Scott says that Guarantano having to confront those images and that perception might have been a blessing in disguise in terms of speeding up his learning curve of what it takes to quarterback a college football team at this level.

"For him to have that experience, that's as real as it gets".

"With the help of your parents, us as coaches, your teammates, we're going to help you through this", Scott said.

"You have to grow and go in a different direction".

Tennessee's quarterback derby is expected to take another turn this week.
