Tyrone Swoopes and Jerrod Heard don't necessarily have strong college football track records heading into 2015-16. So according to head coach Charlie Strong, whomever 'wins the team' has the best chance to win the job moving forward.
"I'm going to sit (the entire team) down in the locker room and ask 'em, 'Who do y'all like best?'" Heard said jokingly.
For Heard, it's all about being the most reliable quarterback on the team. He knows that wasn't the case last season, when he was admittedly frustrated about redshirting and let that frustration bled into his practice and film study habits.
"It just made me work harder," Heard said. "I have a lot to prove and it gave me a chip on my shoulder. I just wanted to go out there and be a reliable guy for the team in the spring and summer. I just have to keep proving that I'm getting better."
