Neither Florida nor Michigan will name a starting QB before their opener
We'll be getting the Mystery QB this weekend from both sides
The second-biggest game of Week 1 will be played in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday afternoon when No. 11 Michigan and No. 17 Florida square off. We just have no idea who the starting quarterback will be for either team following the opening kickoff.
It could be you; it might even be me. We just don't know, and neither coach seems willing to help us out here.
During a press conference on Monday, Florida coach Jim McElwain told reporters that when it came to the Gators quarterbacks, the team has "a plan in place" but that he won't name a starter.
"We'll leave that for [Michigan] to guess," McElwain said.
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has yet to release his team's roster for the 2017 season, so it's not hard to figure out how he's approaching this situation. He told reporters Monday that he won't be naming his starting quarterback either, and specifically mentioned that Florida hadn't named theirs.
"We'd love to have that information," he said.
So, seriously, it could be you. If you get an unknown number calling you this week, and it's from the Ann Arbor, Michigan, or Gainesville, Florida, area, answer it. It just might be the opportunity of a lifetime.
