Quarterback Position Could See A Change At TU

TU football has lost three straight, and in the bye week, that could mean a change under center.

"He may start, he may not," head coach Philip Montgomery said.

With that, the quarterback situation at TU is once again unsettled.

After Luke Skipper threw three interceptions and lost two fumbles against Temple, Montgomery said the quarterback competition is open again.

"Not saying I'm taking it away from Luke, not saying I'm giving it to somebody else, but we are open enough to understand we've got to make sure that we've got the right guy on the field," he said.

Against Temple, the Golden Hurricane out gained the Owls by more than 100 yards but lost by 14.

With the bye week this week, Montgomery said it was a good time to re-evaluate.

"He understood completely,” Montgomery said. “I haven't said I'm making a change. I'm just saying there's an open competition for it."

Even with the struggles for offensive consistency, the Golden Hurricane have been in every game they've played. They said it's just a matter of one play or one guy being out of position.

Now, the goal is to clean all that up for Houston next week.

"You watch the film and it's like, man, we were literally one person away from making an explosive play,” offensive lineman Willie Wright said. “So, we have to kind of get past that."

"It's not so much of what teams are doing to us, it's what we're doing to ourselves," said Montgomery.
