Heated QB Battle in Madison
- Updated: August 3, 2013
Football season is here! With the Wisconsin Badgers already practicing, there will be some position battles to keep your eyes on. The most heated and interesting battle for the Wisconsin Badgers at fall camp will the quarterback position, with three men vying for the starting job – Joel Stave, Curt Phillips and Tanner McEvoy.
Joel Stave and Curt Phillips both started for the Badgers last season, but the biggest uncertainty will be Tanner McEvoy. McEvoy was Gary Anderson’s first big recruit as the new head coach of the Badgers, and he is a dual-threat quarterback, unlike the other two. This gives him the edge over Stave and Phillips because Anderson is known for running the spread offense with the run option.
While Coach Anderson will take his time choosing a starter, it will ultimately be Tanner McEvoy starting under center week one against the University of Massachusetts. He is exactly who the Badgers need to run their offense, and he gives them the best chance of winning with his dual-threat ability.
