Moseley: Darron Thomas may have a slight lead (over Costa) in their battle to this point. Offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich said Thomas has fewer turnovers and a better completion percentage through the first week, though he stressed that it’s still basically an even competition between the two.
Courtney: Nate Costa and Darron Thomas traded interceptions to redshirt defensive back Brian Jackson and senior defensive end Kenny Rowe, respectively. "It's all overblown," said Kelly after practice, "Everyone is going to have to throw through alleys and throw through lanes, because when Brandon Bair sticks his arms up, there's no one taller than Brandon Bair."
