“I’m not trying to be deceitful.”

Mark Stoops and Eddie Gran talk quarterback battle.


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Terry Wilson or Gunnar Hoak?

Central Michigan will likely be preparing for both…no matter what happens down the stretch in terms of announcing a starter at UK.

Mark Stoops will keep the Chippewas guessing just like us media folks and Solid Blue fans.

There’s still the option we see both at some point.

It’s a tight race and always up for grabs.

But, without telling us who, has the decision been made?

While the starter hasn’t been nailed down…or at least not being mentioned publicly…there’s no doubt the staff has a list of qualities it’s looking for in the guy who takes the first snap on that first Saturday.

So what are some of the things QB1 needs to have to earn and take that spot?
