I wanna personally apologize for being such a Marshall Glenn fan when we signed him out of high school. I didn't see him play at E. Mechlenburgh, but he finished 2nd to Chris Leak for NC Mr. Football, and he had phenomenal numbers, so I thought he was good. We all know now that he's horrible. For leadin on the Blue Death Family, I'm sorry.
At the press conference today, Small said there was a 99 percent chance Moye would start against SCSU.
I hope I'm wrong but I don't think it will make any difference. Well, instead of losing by 4 td's we'll lose by three. As long as we have the same coaches it doesn't matter who we put back there. Those dudes would find a way to make Chris Leake look like worst qb in the country.
I'm just waiting for the season to end so I can see what changes are going to be made.

'Survivalist' QB Moye might start A&T's final game
By Bill Hass Staff Writer News & Record
GREENSBORO -- N.C. A&T football coach George Small is considering a change at quarterback for the Aggies' final game.
Senior Adrian Moye would replace junior Marshall Glenn against South Carolina State if Small follows through.
"I have thought about starting Moye, but I haven't come to a decision yet," Small said Monday. "Marshall has been struggling and it's Moye's last game. He's probably earned it. He came off the bench Saturday and did some good things. He messed up, too."
Moye threw a 62-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Trusty on a flea-flicker play in the Aggies' 51-24 loss to Hampton. It was A&T's only offensive touchdown.
For the season, Moye has completed 26 of 55 passes for three touchdowns with three interceptions. He has some scrambling ability.
"He's a survivalist," Small said. "He does a great job of surviving by just running around."
Glenn threw four interceptions at Hampton, giving him 15 for a season in which he has only six TD passes.
"It's nothing in particular, just peaks and valleys," Small said of Glenn's season performance. "It's not all on him, it's a collective effort.
"There might be some pressure, a guy may drop the ball or run the wrong route, or the wrong play or formation might be sent in by the coaches. He didn't pout or anything when we pulled him out Saturday."
PRODUCTION: Small said he expects tailback Micheaux Hollingsworth to be more productive this week. Hollingsworth returned to the lineup after missing three games with a sprained ankle, but gained only 18 yards on 10 carries against Hampton.
BULLDOGS: After A&T had clinched the MEAC championship last season, it lost to S.C. State 49-9. Small held several injured players out of the game so they could heal for the NCAA Division I-AA playoffs.
The Bulldogs scored on returns of an interception, a fumble, a blocked punt and a blocked field-goal attempt.
"All of that was just a result of things we did to ourselves," Small said. "They didn't score on our defense too much.
"I don't feel like we owe them one. We have to play a good football game and we'd love to win the game. It's a strong rivalry, and that's enough incentive for either team."
I must give it up to Moye. He made a few mistakes today but overall he played with a lot of heart and smarts. With a little more help from the coaching staff and refs he could have pulled this one off.
