  • UC QB competition

    There is a new article in the Enquirer about Nick Mardner (WR transfer from Hawaii). In that article, Nick is quoted:

    "Back shoulder, there's nothing you can do to stop it, especially if you get it to the point where you and the quarterback are on the same page 100%," Mardner said. "If Ben and I get that down, which we will, it's going to be hard to stop us."

    Makes me believe that Ben Bryant has the upper hand on the QB competition.

    Maybe Mardner thinks so, but what does Guidugli think? Ultimately, that comes down to the coaches. I doubt if anything is settled until late in summer camp.

    The staff probably has one or the other with a edge at this point, but there’s still time for things to change.

      I hate to see them waste the college career of the highest rated prospect in school history. It would not bode well for convincing other local kids to stay home and play at UC.

        Remember that Bryant had a somewhat outstanding season against MAC opponents. Not to say that he isn’t capable, but he also left UC for a reason.

          Hank Poteat didn't pan well, but I think Evan will have a much different path. I personally give the edge to Ben because he had to be told he'd get a fair shot, plus he has a monster arm (and did when playing behind Dez). However, Evan has three years of eligibility left with the COVID year and there is plenty of time for him to shine should Ben win the starting job. Win the job, compete, and be ready to play win or lose. That is all anyone can ask Evan right now. I think Gino had a big hand in recruiting both Ben and Evan, so he will not be playing favorites.

            Having two cannon armed Quarterbacks is never bad. Injuries happen.

              Didn't we end up playing 5 different quarterbacks during one of Kelly's seasons as HC?

                Most I found was 2008, Chazz Anderson, Dustin Grutza, and Tony Pike. Ithink more may have seen the field in one of those years with injuries.

                  True but when your reason is NFL draftee Desmond Ridder, it's a good reason.
