Don’t let playing two QBs mess up offensive rhythm

First, it was reported early this week that Kellen Mond would be named the starter for tonight’s game. It wasn’t official but reports from practice over the weekend were that Mond had been getting all the reps with the first team. It was generally understood that Nick Starkel would be getting some reps in the game as well, possibly in a rotation.

However, Fisher stated in a teleconference yesterday that Mond was the guy, and that he had no plans of a rotation at quarterback.

Now, that doesn’t mean Starkel isn’t likely to see the field. The reality is A&M should run away with this game early. In that case, all the starters will be pulled to make way for other players to gain experience, and this includes Starkel.

Having said all of that, there is still a chance Starkel rotates in with the first team, especially in the case that Mond struggles. This can often have a negative effect on the offense due to not being able to find a rhythm. Fisher has to sense this as it’s happening and stick with one guy if so.
