Open and shut case

August 30th, 2008

Coach  Greg McMackin “opened” the QB position after today’s 56-10 loss at Florida. Then he quickly pulled back, saying he had to look at the film first. I am of the belief that Inoke Funaki should be the starter, at least this week against Weber State, and the reasoning will be in my column that drops Sunday a.m. … I realize Funaki did his thing against Florida backups. But will Weber State’s first stringers be better than the substitute Gators? … Provide your thoughts on UH QB and I’ll post ‘em on the way to the Orlando airport at 5 a.m. tomorrow (If  Jason’s good to drive).
