UCLA football: Neuheisel to name starting QB Tuesday afternoon
UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel said he will name a starting quarterback late Tuesday, though the Bruins are likely to play both Kevin Prince and Richard Brehaut against Houston on Saturday.
Neuheisel said that he wanted “to talk to those kids this afternoon and tell them what my plan is.”
Asked why he didn’t keep Houston guessing up until game time, Neuheisel said, “I wasn’t doing it to befuddle Houston. I was doing to get the most out of these kids and I don’t want it to be a distraction as we get closer to game time.”
Houston, though, was a bit befuddled.
“They have us practicing a lot of different things with the two quarterbacks,” Houston Coach Kevin Sumlin said. “It keeps us guessing.”
Sumlin will get to stop guessing sometime Tuesday.
“You know, whoever lines up, we’re going to have to go out and defend against them,” Sumlin said.
