Quinn Remains Quiet on QB

University at Buffalo football coach Jeff Quinn shed no new light on the quarterback situation during Monday morning's Mid-American Conference coaches' teleconference. The Bulls entertain Temple at noon Saturday, a game vital to both teams' East Division title hopes.

"Right now you saw both of them play Saturday and there's a chance that both will play (against Temple) as we keep moving this program forward," Quinn said. "As I told our entire staff and our program, we're going to continue putting the guys on the field that give us the best chance to be successful regardless of what position it is."

Enough already. There's little if any evidence to indicate that starter Jerry Davis is the present, let alone the future. His struggles have been colossal and are wasting what's probably the best defensive team the Bulls have ever put on the field in their MAC history. But does Quinn make the switch this week, entrusting a must-win game to a true freshman QB (Alex Zordich) who'd be making his first career start? Tough call. I'm guessing we see one more week -- or at least one more half -- of Davis.

On the injury front, tailback Brandon Thermilus will miss the Temple game with a knee injury suffered at Northern Illinois.
