Brian Kelly on QBs: It'll be a controversy throughout the entire year

It’s beginning to sound more and more as if Brian Kelly really is unsettled at quarterback. Kelly did not name a starter during spring practice, and didn’t put a stamp on which quarterback is leading going into August camp.

Kelly even used the word “controversy” during a Wednesday speech in San Antonio.

Kelly said,“It'll be a controversy throughout the entire year, because we've got four really good quarterbacks(Dane Crist, Tommy Rees, Andrew Hendrix, and Everett Golson). Last year at this time, we had no quarterbacks with really any experience, other than when Dane was here in San Antonio (vs. Washington State at the Alamodome in 2009) and tore up his knee.”

“We have four guys who can win, four guys we think are exciting. I think this is probably not a situation where we can clearly say who the No. 1 is until we start playing games.”

It truly sounds that Kelly isn’t speaking to motivate Dayne Crist. He really is unsure of his starter.

Notre Dame opens with South Florida, at Michigan, and Michigan State. The Michigan game is set for an 8 pm EST kick-off in Ann Arbor.
