Don't Write off Zordich

Don't be surprised if it takes another week for Jeff Quinn to name his starting QB. Sophomore Alex Zordich is making the battle more interesting than might have been expected.

Experience weighed in favor of incoming QB Chazz Anderson when the University at Buffalo opened training camp. Anderson played for Quinn at Cincinnati and, as a fifth-year senior, scores high in the maturity department.

But Zordich was no less than Anderson's equal in Saturday's scrimmage and continued to get major reps in practice Monday. I'm guessing the Bulls will wait until after their second scrimmage this Saturday before making a firm commitment. I'm sure Quinn will lend more insight at Tuesday's media day.

Meanwhile, centers Jasen Carlson and Josh Violanti remain out along with linebacker John Syty. Graham Whinery remains at center.
