Interesting take on the QB race by Hunt according to 7/30 gocolgateraiders.com. Freshman Breneman seems to be more than just in the thick of the competition. Hunt says finding the QB is the central mission in Camp. Any insight out there ?

"We've got to find out who our quarterback is and do that quickly..... That will be the emphasis in camp and we've got some great candidates, ,,,,, But we've got to find the starter and get that guy operating our system, because we have to execute our offense at a high level in the first four games of the season for sure."........

"I look at ( Freshman ) Grant Breneman..... who had a really nice game in the Big 33 Game https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_33_Football_Classic. We don't get a lot of kids in that game. The last player we had who played in the Big 33 Game was Nate Eachus, and he obviously had a heck of a career..".......

"If Breneman is good enough to beat out what we have, that means he's pretty good. So I would be comfortable with it."......

".... we're going to have three or four guys who if they had to play I feel comfortable with them in the game. The freshman would be one of them, for sure. But it's nice as a luxury to not be tied to if the quarterback gets hurt, we don't have anybody behind him."......

Not one vote in the FCS preseason poll?  What's up with that?

OUTLOOK: The storyline of fall camp was finding a replacement for Melville, who made 27 career starts at quarterback. Scarfone seemingly has won the job heading into the Raiders' early opener at Cal Poly, and with veterans up front (four linemen and two tight ends) and Holland (back from injury) and Washington forming a tag team at running back, the offense can take a lot of pressure off the new QB. While the Raiders led the FCS in rushing defense and were second in sacks per game, they have had to replace three starters on the defensive line. Fortunately, the returnee up front is All-America defensive end Afriyie. The defense also is replacing its three-year tackle leader in Diener. Lehigh and Fordham are back-to-back games, but both rivals have to visit Hamilton.

From this article.

Game notes are now up as well, with the 2 deep.  There's a big "OR" on the QB line, so not sure what I learned.  Anybody who knows the roster better than I do see anything that's surprising?

From the two deep, it looks like Keyon must be banged up. He's not listed as one of the TB's. That makes Holland's 100% recovery critical. It also puts pressure on the young backups, soph Mathews and frosh Twyman, to step up quickly.

Among the position groups, the OL and the receivers seem to be in be in the shape. Perhaps we should include the db's here ?

Tre Caine, starting as a wide receiver as a frosh, is impressive. He came to 'gate with incredible numbers running, receiving and playing as a db. But, he comes from a very small private school in the Detroit area. So, you never know if that success transfers at the next level ?

Regardless of who starts this game, my gut tells me the QB thing is going to be unsettled for a while. Shall we call it a mystery?.... Three talented QB's who have virtually no game experience running this offense, are competing head to head every week.

Will the new starting bodies playing in the DL and as linebackers embody the swagger that their immediate predecessors earned ?

With their collective experience playing together, will the D secondary become the strength of the D ?

For a variety of reasons, this feels like a transition year. It will be interesting watching for things to come together--many bodies with some game experience, complemented by some vets. Team character and chemistry?..... Compared to last year's team, this group hasn't had the opportunity to build game experience chemistry. Watching how this team plays together as the season evolves will make for an interesting season.

That's why they play the game.

Good review.  I think Keyon is really banged up. OL looks very good as do receivers. Key is how quickly the qb's get in the groove.
