Vol Twitter is exploding over Tennessee's latest quarterback controversy
News broke on Tuesday afternoon that Tennessee redshirt freshman quarterback Jarrett Guarantano will be starting for the Volunteers against South Carolina on Saturday.
And perhaps bigger news … junior Quinten Dormady, who has been the starting QB for the Vols through the first five games of the season, is apparently “contemplating his future” at Tennessee.
Rumors circulated late Monday night and Tuesday morning that Dormady had quit the team and may be looking to transfer, however those rumors have not been totally confirmed.
Regardless, #VolTwitter is ready to explode.
There’s never a shortage of breaking news in Knoxville, and with that, Twitter has to stay on its toes. Fans and media alike seem to have mixed reactions about this latest news on the quarterback situation at UT.
If Dormady transfers so be it. All aboard the Guantanamo bay hype train!!! pic.twitter.com/RlC0IIs6jN

Don’t feel bad for Dormady … He will go to an AAC/MAC school, get better position coaching and get drafted like Nate and Riley!

@Midday180 Does Dormady quitting count as a leadership rep?

Dormady’s future unclear? It’s very clear. Transfer and become a great QB somewhere else.

Guarantano named the starter.

Riley Ferguson left and got better, Peterman left and got better…..Can you blame dormady?

If Dormady quits, that shows his true character and I don’t want him on my team. Better quarterbacks than him have been benched.

The locker room was said to be strong 24 hours ago, now Guarantano named the starter vs. SC and Dormady is now contemplating future at UT.

Dormady bout to take a transfer rep?

Dormady would be the 4th starter in two yrs to leave mid season if QD follows through with this now. Unheard of.
