Towles has improved his accuracy this Spring, acting cooler and calmer with his progressions in the pocket.  Stoops isn't ready to hand him the job, but his experience and improvement have the offense more efficient than ever. Shannon Dawson described Towles' day:  "I thought he was solid throughout  -- accurate, had good zip on the ball, got it out on time -- and made good decisions other than two or three times really.  Overall a really solid day." Above all other things, what Dawson appreciates most about Patrick, "He's listening." [caption id="attachment_177279" align="alignnone" width="600"]247 Towles might have been the most vocal player on the sidelines Saturday, showing signs of leadership within the offense.[/caption] -  Big George Asafo-Adjei will likely crack into the offensive line's Top 8 rotation.  Most true freshmen get the redshirt, but Big George is different.  It helps when you bench press 410, clean 325 multiple times, and squat in the 600-pound range.  The gentle giant keeps his composure when the defense jaws, "I let my play speak for itself."  His size certainly speaks for itself, too. -  Shannon Dawson admits he makes mistakes too.  It's easy to blame Drew Barker for throwing two interceptions during Saturday's scrimmage, but don't be too quick to point the finger. "I made a number of mistakes in the scrimmage," Dawson said.  "I was watching film this morning and I said, ‘Well, that’s a dumbass call right there.’" Dawson said he left the field thinking they played terrible, but the film proved him wrong.  They did not run the ball as physically as he would have liked, but were efficient when airing it out down the field. -  Thaddeus Snodgass was not a fan of missing out on football last year, "Just sitting and watching was tough because in high school you're used to being in every play."  He stayed motivated, doing whatever he could to add physicality to his long, lanky body.  It's tough competition at the X-position alongside Blake Bone, but Blake's big catch to start off the scrimmage pushed him.  At the end of the day, Snodgrass had two big plays to Bone's one.
