QB Controversy brewing in Idaho

Or is it? After throwing three interceptions and being benched by Idaho head coach Rob Akey last Saturday, junior QB Nathan Enderle was named the starting quarterback for next weekend's game against Hawaii.

Enderle was pulled late in the fourth quarter in last week’s win at San Jose State for backup Brian Reader, who directed the Vandals to the game-clinching drive. But Enderle beat out Reader before the season and had played well before his three-interception performance. Said Akey, “Nate is our starter. Absolutely. He is our starter and we’ve got a very talented backup.”

As long as the Vandals don't have this Derrick Anderson-Brady Quinn hate-fest, I'm fine with a little competition although Enderle is statistically one of the best QBs in the country.
