Quarterback quandaries

On this morning's SWAC teleconference, Grambling coach Melvin Spears declared, "Right now, our quarterback is Brandon Landers.''

Well, duh, the guy threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns in a win over Jackson State last week. Larry Kerlegan hasn't played in two weeks because of a high ankle sprain.

Landers is playing like the quarterback everyone thought he was. Of course, you could say Spears' penchant for playing Kerlegan earlier in the year may have caused some of Landers' troubles.

A similar situation took place at NSU. Scott Stoker declared Ricky Joe Meeks the starter. After a dust-up on the practice field before the season opener, there was Roch Charpentier taking the first snaps of the season at Kansas.

Meeks eventually moved back into the starting lineup. But Stoker's penchant for playing Charpentier certainly didn't help Meeks. Eventually, Meeks quit the team leaving Charpentier as the starter.

Once again, if you've got two quarterbacks, at least in these eyes, you really don't have one.
