Blue roundup: Battle is on for Washington State quarterback job
While BYU has a clear-cut starter at quarterback, its season-opening opponent, Washington State, has two QBs fighting for the starting job.
"Mike Leach won't come right out and say it, but the Washington State coach has drawn plenty of lines to read between when it comes to his team's quarterback competition," writes Christian Caple of the Spokesman Review. "The battle — if you can call it that — between senior Jeff Tuel and redshirt sophomore Connor Halliday was supposed to be staged during the spring, but Halliday's liver injury kept him out of 11-on-11 sessions and Tuel took every snap with the No. 1 offense. Halliday returned healthy for camp, but Tuel has continued to take the majority of the No. 1 reps."

And Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star writes that the Colts should waive former BYU star Austin Collie in the wake of Collie's recent concussion.
"How can the Colts, who presumably care about the long-term health of Austin Collie, allow the team’s oft-concussed wide receiver to return to the football field in a Colts uniform?" Kravitz writes. "Clearly, Collie is not going to make the most difficult decision an athlete will ever have to make by himself. So the Colts need to make it for him. They need to waive him."
