Notre Dame QB Update

Okay, we now have the starting quarterbacks for Saturday’s Notre Dame spring game and if you think this is a big deal, then you must really be intrigued by coin tosses.

Yes, Jimmy Clausen and Zach Frazer will start, with Demetrius Jones and Evan Sharpley as the backups.

So does this mean we now know who the leaders will be heading into August’s preseason camp? Not even close.

Clausen and Frazer get to start because they won a coin toss. That’s it. Don’t read any more into it than that.

In fact, what this means is that Clausen and Frazer will quarterback the odd-numbered offensive series, while Jones and Sharpley will run the show during even-numbered series.

Coach Charlie Weis reiterated that the coaching staff won’t start evaluating everything until late May. Figure a decision will be made by early June. Even then, that decision will be who are the No. 1 and No. 2 candidates entering preseason camp. The actual starter will be based on performance in the weeks leading up to the season opener against Georgia Tech.

So now you know.
