Be sure to check out tomorrow’s dead-tree edition look at how both Maryland and Navy has a steady recent history of juggling multiple starting quarterbacks.

How steady? Only three schools have longer droughts since their last wire-to-wire starting quarterback than Navy. Only five (including Navy) have one longer than Maryland.


Here’s a rundown of the longest droughts coming into the season (*-already used multiple starters this season; #-will use a second starter Saturday) thanks to more research time than I care to admit:

1996: UNLV (Jon Denton)

2004: Memphis (Danny Wimprine)
2004: Temple (Walter Washington)

2005: Cincinnati (Dustin Grutza)
2005: Navy* (Lamar Owens)

2006: Maryland# (Sam Hollenbach)
2006: Middle Tennessee (Clint Marks)
2006: Vanderbilt* (Chris Nickson)

2007: Colorado (Cody Hawkins)
Kentucky* (Andre’ Woodson)
2007: Tennessee (Erik Ainge)
