What’s everyone’s take on no starting QB being announced as of yet?

    With the list of team captains being announced, it would seem that in all likelihood Troy Williams would be named the starter, but alas this has not yet happened.

    I guess there could be multiple reasons behind this, which I’ve listed in order of most likely => least likely, in my opinion:

    1) Troy has been told behind closed doors that he’s the guy but that they are keeping up a stance with the media that there is still a competition in order to avoid an issue with Tyler Huntley in losing confidence or possibly transferring

    2) There are plans to have a multiple-QB package where Troy is the guy for between the 20’s and Huntley will come in for red zone packages

    3) The gap between Troy and Huntley is closer than it should be and there is an actual QB race going on.

    4) It’s just pure gamesmanship and Utah doesn’t want to give away any details about our QB situation for as long as possible.


    What does everyone think?

    Option 5: Whitt and Co are trolling.

      Ah, the many faces of Kyle. Riverboat Kyle, angry Kyle and Troll Kyle.

        Riverboat Kyle is still my favorite.

          Riverboat Kyle makes me nervous. I think I like Angry Kyle the best. Furious Kyle only comes out after 17 false starts in a row and scares the assistant coaches.

    Meh…doesn’t bother me at all. Whoever starts, starts.

    I would have an issue if the starter, whoever it is, does not perform well.

    I think a combination of 1 and 2. And it will be good.

    I am super excited to have more than one QB who is fully capable of winning. This is new territory for our team.

    I think Troy starts but Huntley plays on some read-option runs, especially in the red zone.

      so when Huntley comes in the other side loads the box ’cause the know he’s not going to pass, just like Thompson in ’15 so he gets dropped in the backfield and our field goal unit gets lots of opportunities.

    I THINK based on how things have changed the last few years with shrinking media access, no injury information, etc. this is pure gamesmanship.  I do however believe there is and will be a package for Tyler this year.  

    I KNOW it hasn’t been announced in the QB room, to the offense or even to the team to keep everyone working as hard as possible which is in everyone’s best interest…players, coaches and even us fans.

    Troy gets first shot.

    Whitt and Jim Harbaugh are kindred spirits in this regard. Michigan hasn’t even updated/released their depth chart since last year. I remember khaki pants didn’t announce a starting QB when we played them in the opener and the only after the first time the Wolverines took the field after opening kickoff is when everyone finally knew who it was going to be.

      I love what Colorad9 did in response of khaki pants not releasing his depth chart last year.

        I’d start Milton Waddams over Bill Lumbergh.
