If you look at the first week of camp and the first scrimmage today Sunseri and even Bostick have outplayed Stull. Today Sunseri threw a touchdown and no interceptions while Stull put up another interception as he has been doing for the entire camp. The quick dismissal of the question about a QB battle heating up says all you need to know about this situation. Stull is going to start regardless of play on the practice field. Opening day he will face the actual competition from a restless fanbase and YSU.
Stull hasn't had a standout practice or scrimmage since the spring and that hasn't changed his spot at all. With that, I will keep the bitching about the QB situation out of the columns. Now on to a quick overview of the day:
- I'm very excited with how well Taglianetti is playing at safety in the absence of Fields. In a perfect world Fields would be an All Big East player right now but that hasn't happened. I still feel that on-field we could have a superstar in Fields but knowing that Taglianetti can handle the starting job is promising.
- Ray Graham is really playing himself out of a redshirt. He had the most productive day of all the backs and I have a feeling the staff trusts him. Right now I would predict the depth chart for the running backs being Lewis-Graham-Burns and Harris being used as a different situation and short yardage back.
- I think the defensive line is going to be even better this year. Sheard had an amazing end of the season and he is creating sacks. Where the new strength lies is guys like Hale and Lindsey destroying on the second team. The interior of the is just as strong with the position change for Hargrove.
Hopefully some of the small injuries guys have picked up will heal and the team can get more time to gel.
