TST: Bunting Putting The Heat On Baker

"Here's the deal I find interesting with Bunting and Baker -- Bunting has really been pushing Baker all season as a guy who could be a first-team all-ACC quarterback by the time the season has finished ... I've been watching Baker and thinking - 'You know, he does have a good arm, he is a pretty big and strong kid who can make all the throws.' But he really hasn't shown me that type of production. His completion percentage is only 52.2 percent and he's thrown a league-high eight interceptions. The other quarterbacks have played six games and he's only played five. Bunting for the first time came out yesterday and put the heat on him a little bit that it's time for Baker to do a better job and avoid turning the ball over because the type of games they're going to be playing in they just can't afford them."
