Charlie Strong: Two quarterbacks will play at Notre Dame


The Texas Longhorns have one big question mark heading into the 2015 season. That question is: Who is going to be our starting quarterback. That usually isn’t a good question to have this close to beginning of the season.

According to College Spun, the Longhorns will do their best to determine who the starting quarterback will be throughout the season, but that question won’t be answered until at least after the first game. Head coach Charlie Strong has stated that he will play two quarterbacks for the first game at Notre Dame.

Junior quarterback Tyrone Swoopes started for the Longhorns last season. He didn’t have a very successful season after throwing for thirteen touchdowns and eleven interceptions. He has battled with freshman Jerrod Heard for the starting spot all spring and summer long.

It is unfortunate that the Longhorns have to play a top program Notre Dame without a true starting quarterback in place, but it will be nice to know who can handle the pressure of a situation like a game of this caliber. This situation could be a blessing in disguise for the Longhorns.

The Longhorns open the season against the Fighting Irish in South Bend on September 5.
