Coach Kelly Has Chosen a Starting QB

Brian Kelly will use that against the Florida State Seminoles in the first game of the season on Sunday. Out of all the questions Kelly has fielded about the roster, the one he has faced more than any other is, “Coach, who is the starting quarterback?”

The answer to that question is [redacted]. We only know that the battle came down to two guys, Jayden Daniels and Garrett Nussmeier.

“This is a 1A and 1B,” Kelly said of the competition. “This is not a 1 and a 2.”

So, if you’re Mike Norvell, how do you gameplan for two different quarterbacks with separate skill sets? That’s the four-million-dollar question.

Kelly named the offensive line starters but did not mention the Game 1 starter at quarterback, not because he wasn’t sure who it was — he confirmed that the coaches had made a decision — but to keep the Seminoles on their toes.
