"A lot of people say that if you don't have a starter named permanently then you don't have a quarterback and that's baloney," Dabo Swinney said after Wednesday's scrimmage. "Our problem is that we've got some good ones. It's like you've got Mike Williams and DeAndre Hopkins and you've got to pick which one to start or who's going to run out there first. Well you know what, they're pretty good and the quarterback position doesn't get the same respect."
