I’d like to see Shane Austin and David Graves both get significant playing time at quarterback against Fresno State, at least early in the game. Not necessarily alternating every play, but perhaps by series and situationally … Austin in third-and-long situations, Graves in short yardage. Then, for the second half, start whoever did better in the first half. Perhaps even run some formations with both on the field.
I don’t think this will happen, at least not this week, since UH wants to go with one clear starter.
I want to see who is better under the bright lights on Saturday night … it’s a lot different than practice.
One other note; if Graves is the guy and he does well and the Warriors win down the stretch, it could be a great boost to UH headed into 2012 since Graves is only a sophomore now. But I’d also like to see Austin, a senior, get some chances to shine at the end of a five-year career where he mostly waited in the wings.
