TheRoundUp 9/13: McEntee will start Friday

UCONN FOOTBALL: Despite Vandy loss, QB Johnny McEntee will likely remain starter against Iowa State (with video) - Houston Chronicle
But on Monday, a couple of hours before practice, McEntee remained down in the dumps as he met with state media. "The less time the better to think about it," McEntee said. "My teammates are behind me. Having their support is really helping me out. But I’m just trying to forget about it and move on."

Even with McEntee’s considerable struggles, Pasqualoni didn’t indicate if he would give either Nebrich or McCummings any more of a shot at securing the starting role. Quarterbacks coach Joe Moorhead said the plan for the Iowa State game will be the same as it was against Vanderbilt: to start McEntee and bring in Nebrich for the first series of the second quarter while sprinkling in plays for McCummings.

UConn Coach Paul Pasqualoni had hoped one of them would separate himself by now, but said Monday that all three: junior walk-on Johnny McEntee, redshirt freshman Scott McCummings and freshman Mike Nebrich will again see action Friday night has the Huskies (1-1) take on Iowa State (2-0).

What does Mike Nebrich need to do to get the starting spot? "He just needs to have a great week of practice and really be able to function and have a great week. To me, it doesn’t matter who starts the game, the three of them are going to be ready to play and when they get in the game they need to be productive. Good sound fundamentals, great awareness, consistent reads, knowing what he is doing, managing the huddle and trying to maintain the tempo of the game."

Squeezing three quarterbacks into one game is ultimately a doomed experiment. So why not give the kid the same chance McEntee had against Vanderbilt? What's the worst that could happen? He goes 10-for-27 for 99 yards and three interceptions? The UConn defense will still swarm. The special teams will still produce. No way does Iowa State rout UConn at home.

"I'm a very fiery guy, so when I get out there, I expect a lot," said Moore, a redshirt junior from Apex, North Carolina. "It's just about trying to channel it the right way. It's a matter of not getting too hot-headed. There's a difference between playing with aggression and doing something that could be detrimental to the team."

When Iowa State plays a nationally televised game at Connecticut on Friday night, the Cyclones (2-0) will try to conjure up more of the magic that enabled them to upset Iowa 44-41 in three overtimes last Saturday. They’ve been unable to do that following their two previous marquee victories under coach Paul Rhoads.
