Starting QB Decision: Delayed

Delaware Head Coach Dave Brock decided on Thursday that a clear choice for starting QB is too close to call right now. At first glance of the report by KT, I was scratching my head and befuddled. Why can’t you pick a guy and roll with it? Anyone that has watched football for a couple decades and have seen QB platoons, know they eventually scuttle a season if a starter…
