Mack's quote on the quarterbacks after the scrimmage:
"I think they both did a good job. And that's a good thing. I think we are going to have two good quarterbacks to play right now, and we'll just have to figure all that out as we go through. Still got two and a half weeks. It's not like it was last year where we are sitting here wondering. I really think that in our mind and we ask everybody in the staff room, and we'll go around and say, “Who would you play at quarterback.” It's not only you all asking; we ask, too. I got the same questions you do. And the answers are good. But we are having more consensus that both could play right now and still win a game for us. I think part of that is because a game like an A&M game and a game like the Cal game, is the players have seen both of them win. So they know that most of the time around here, we have not had a backup quarterback that could go in and win. And right now is the first time that I think we are in the best shape. We are not in the best shape with the starters because we have had All-Americans at that position, but both of those guys give us a chance to win right now if they protect the ball, and they both did that last night. And they both played with the ones last night, against the ones and they both played with the ones against the two's. We actually had an overtime, which we have never had like that, and we took a team and put them out there and played them against the other team. And the first team that went out kicked the field goal and the second team that came out had a field goal and got it blocked. So it was fun to watch the kids respond, and we had Big 12 officials, so that was good. "
We need to prepare our mental faculties to see both the Ash man and Case out on the field. If Ash doesn't get the nod at starter for the Wyoming game then I will be surprised if not speechless. Mack talks about "separation between the two" but he has not seen enough of this to pick Ash or McCoy. It has been a good year and 4 months so I certainly hope this separation happens soon. Otherwise someone might SWOOPE in and snag this puppy next season, no pun intended. The offensive line will be equally if not more important than who is at quarterback. Josh Cochran's injury is not as bad as speculation had it according to Mack. Donald Hawkins is playing consistently but we haven't heard the rave reviews on him that we expected just yet. Luke Poehlmann has stepped his game up and could start if Cochran's injury isn't healed by Wyoming time.
That's my two cents. I predict both qb's throw at least a touchdown in the opener with our running game pummeling the Cowboy defense for 300 yards.
