Why in the world would UTEP Football Coach Sean Kugler pronounce Blaire Sullivan to be "our starting quarterback," even as he qualified that with the proverbial — at least for now? The Miners need to sell season tickets.
Sullivan was No. 3 last year. He played in only five games and completed less than 50 percent of his passes (21 of 43). No UTEP quarterback was impressive last season, including Sullivan. It did not look like he's a quarterback for the future.
Kugler didn't HAVE TO say Sullivan is "our starting quarterback." I don't think fans want to hear that. I'm betting fans hope Texas A&M transfer Jameill Showers wins the spot.
